The stakes are raised on Thursday's (June 7) episode of ABC's " Duets," as the musical competition show sends one of its players home for the first time in an elimination round face-off.
The third episode of the series has each contestant choosing a song most sentimental to them for their performances, some getting choked up more than others (in fact, one contestant brings his partner and the other judges to tears in typical, albeit heartwarming, reality show fashion). The range of song selections are as diverse as the cast, belting out a little gospel, a little Beyonce and a little Michael Bolton along the way.
Once everyone has a chance to prove their skill, the judges' votes will reveal who's on top and who sank to the bottom. This week then brings the first grueling battle of the solo mic, where the two lowest scorers compete in an a capella sing-off, performing a song of their choice in a bid to keep their spot on the show.
Who will it be? Let's just say, the elimination showdown may be surprising...
John Legend and Jennifer Nettles open the episode (pictured above), and from there, it's anything goes.
Check back tonight or all the details.
