The Embarrassing and The Amazing
I sadly wasted about an hour of my life flipping back and forth to the most embarrassing show ever-Celebrity Duets. You have to watch this to believe it, it's truly painful. I kid you not, I covered my eyes when Chris Jericho sang because I felt so horrible for him and Lea Thompson is even worse. Jai Rodriguez from Queer Eye for the Strait Guy is actually pretty good and Hal Sparks is so stinking cute, but seriously-Cheech Marin?
To top it all off the duets with the most elevator music sort of artists, Michael Bolton, Cyndie Lauper, Randy Travis! Come on!!
If you really want to watch a singing competition that blows Celebrity Duets, American Idol or anything else out of the water try Rock Star:Supernova. It is amazing the talent of these people bring to the table and they sing all rock songs. None of the Dion Warwick crap.
My top picks are Magni and Toby, but the competition is pretty solid. The cool thing about this show is that it is international and most of the contestants have either had multi record deals or years and years of experience. It is less of a contest and more about a really competitive audition for a rock band. This show is worth the time. There is an elimination show tonight.
