According to The Hollywood Reporter, Simon Cowell is singing Duets with Fox. The network has given a cast-contingent order to an unscripted singing competition series from the American Idol star that would have professional singers partnering with celebrities outside of the music business to perform duets in front of a live studio audience.
The format, which Cowell sold to U.K.'s ITV last month, features each duo setting a musical theme from which they pick songs to perform in front of a panel of judges, with viewers having the final say in voting off contestants (HR 12/2). Cowell, whose snarky comments as a judge on Idol have become a major audience draw for the show, will executive produce Duets through his SYCO TV production company but not appear as a judge.
