Fozzy Frontman To Sing On Celebrity Duos

FOZZY frontman and former WWE star Chris Jericho will be taking part in "Celebrity Duets" — an unscripted series that pairs singing stars with celebrities outside the music industry to make "beautiful music" together. The show will follow the professional singers as they instruct their partners, choose songs and perform duets in front of a panel of judges and a live studio audience. After each episode, viewers will vote for their favorite duets. The winning pair will emerge from the competition in perfect harmony, while the losers definitely will have to change their tune. The competition, which will be judged by producer David Foster, kicks off August 29. The celebrity contestants are as follows:

Chris Jericho - Wrestler (WWE)
Lucy Lawless - Actress ("Xena")
Cheech Marin - Actor ("Born In East LA")
Carly Patterson - 2004 Olympic Gymnast
Alfonso Ribiero - Actor/Director ("The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air")
Jai Rodriguez - Pop Culture Guru ("Queer Eye")
Hal Sparks - Actor/Comedian ("Queer As Folk")
Lea Thompson - Actress ("Back To The Future")

The contestants remaining in the competition will be paired with a different music superstar each week. Those singers include Clint Black, Michael Bolton, Belinda Carlisle, Taylor Dayne, Peter Frampton, Macy Gray, James Ingram, Wynonna Judd, Chaka Khan, Patti LaBelle, Kenny Loggins, Richard Marx, Brian McKnight, Aaron Neville, Smokey Robinson, Randy Travis, Dionne Warwick and Lee Ann Womack, among others.

That's cool at least you guys are being mature about it. Don't ya hate reading about ya favourite band and someone turns up and says sh** like "This band is sh**! I never even heard of them!" It's like I don't mind if people say a band's sh** 'cause they seen them live and thought they were sh** 'cause that's their opinion. Hence why I slag off Bullet For Valentine, Trivium and HIM.

i respect chris jericho, he really knows and bleeds heavy metal, though i am also not a fan of Fozzy. i never watch these reality tv shows anyway because a lot of them are fake, scripted and waaaaaay over hyped. however, i did like supergroup, even if it was the same setup. they should do more superstar based band shows.

That doesn't make sense that Chris Jericho is a celebrity and not a musician. :confused:

It's cool that Chris Jericho can make a living doing so many differnt things but I think Fozzy sucks and wrestling is boring, overwrought, soap opera garbage.

To each their own but Jesus....both that band and WWF(E!?!?) are bottom shelf entertainment in my opinion.
