- Daily News (US) 31 August 2006 Fox's 'Duets' Is Music To Our Ears... Apparently, though, the third time's the charm. "Celebrity Duets" has all the right ingredients - good premise, likable host, well-selected talent and judges - and should get even more enjoyable quickly as participants and judges find their rhythms and sea legs.
