'Duets' Judge John Legend Says Some Singing Competition Judges 'Aren’t Really Singers'

ABC/RICK ROWELL(NEW YORK) -- With yet another talent show featuring singers about to debut, the battle of the judges is heating up. ABC’s series, Duets, debuts Thursday May 24, and one of its judges, John Legend, is not holding back with his thoughts on the competition.

When E! asked Legend for his thoughts on Britney Spears and Demi Lovato being drafted as judges for the next season of The X Factor, Legend replied, “It should be very interesting...It’s interesting when people, you know, are judging singing competitions when they aren’t really singers.”

Legend's fellow Duets judges Kelly Clarkson and Robin Thicke were more tactful with their responses.  Clarkson told E!, “I’m excited for both of them. I’m a big fan of both of them. Both of those girls are super sweet."

Thicke added his two cents, telling E!, " ... Everything Britney does, she excels at. Demi is a lovely young lady, and I'm sure they'll do nothing but make the show a lot more fun to watch."

Duets will pair its star judges with contestants for, you guessed it, duets.
