Duets TV Show 2012 Week 3: Songs That Inspire Performances (VIDEOS)

On Thursday night, the Duets 2012 contestants performed ‘Songs That Inspire’ with celebrity duet partners Kelly Clarkson, Robin Thicke, John Legend and Jennifer Nettles. After two weeks of just performances, tonight was the first night one of the contestants would finally have to go home.

While we had a hard time hearing some of the performances due to rather lousy sound production, there were definately a few Duets TV show 2012 competitors that stood out tonight. There were also some fail moments, and frankly I was mostly in agreement when it came to who ended up on the bottom this week on Duets 2012.


Please stop reading here if you do not want Duets 2012 spoilers for episode 3 and to know who was sent home!

To kick off Duets 2012 tonight we had Jennifer Nettles and John Legend doing a celebrity duet of “I’ve Got the Music In Me” by Kiki Dee Band. This duo looks pretty darned sexy together and it was a fun start off for the night. Of course, we’re really here to see the Duets TV show performances though, so time to stop staring at the sexy stars and get on to those videos!

Robin Thicke and Alexis Foster — “Killing Me Softly” by The Fugees

Jennifer Nettles and John Glosson — “How Great Thou Art” (as sung by) Carrie Underwood and Vince Gill

Kelly Clarkson and Jordan Meredith — “Mama’s Broken Heart” by Miranda Lambert

John Legend and Meleana Brown — “If I Ain’t Got You” by Alicia Keys

Robin Thicke and Olivia Chrisholm — “Crazy In Love” by Beyonce and Jay-Z

Jennifer Nettles and J Rome — “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” by Michael Bolton

Kelly Clarkson and Jason Farol — “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen

John Legend and Bridget Carrington — “Heard It Through the Grapevine” by Marvin Gaye and Gladys Knight

After the performances, the final standings for the night are:

  1. J Rome
  2. John Glosson
  3. Jordan Meredith
  4. Bridget Carrington
  5. Meleana Brown
  6. Olivia Chisholm
  7. Jason Farol
  8. Alexis Foster

Landing in the bottom two places, Alexis Foster and Jason Farol then had to perform in a sing-off to determine who would go home on Duets 2012 tonight. Jason Farol performed “Me and Mrs. Jones” and Alexis Foster chose to perform “Natural Woman” — both big songs.

After a vote from the judges, the final scores are determine and the person who was eliminated from Duets 2012 this week is… Alexis Foster. Robin Thicke says he will take care of his girl Alexis no matter what. Jason Farol will move on to compete for at least one more week.

  1. I’ll be the first to comment on the show in general and last night’s performances.  Overall, I find that I am enjoying the show more each time I see it.  Although, I adore Kelly’s ethusiam, I don’t care for the way she makes sounds (spitting with her tongue) when critiquing a contenstant.  Secondly, Kelly’s voice is so BIG, that she overpowers her partner/s.  My two favorites are J Rome and Bridget Carrington. 

  2. I love the show duets, personally, I think that the first night critiques were great, but as the show goes on I’m noticing that Kelly is upset her two were at the bottom, but critiqued Alexis ver harshly. That woman has a great voice, so perhaps the song choices did not match her voice, but she is a talented singer and should still be on the show! The new pick for John is okay, but the original picks sound much better than her to jump up to number 1 with J Rome. Go figure, judges! I have a ear for voices, wish I could have been a judge on the show! D.Bull

  3. Would like to see some of these performances available for purchase on i-tunes. Thanks to Jennifer and John for the touching rendition of “How Great Thou Art”. Wow…
