    I loved the show because it was different. For one the stars picked their own people to sing with and was actually involved in the singing. To me it was more real then the other singing shows because of the star singers interaction with the singers they picked. Please put it back on so we can have something enjoyable to watch.

    I loved the show and will really be upset if it does not return in 2013, but without Robin Thick.

    I absolutetly loved this show!! I could hear Jennifer Nettles, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend sing anything!!!!! Those 3 are my favorite. As for Robin Thicke – not so much.

    I was brought up in a family which embraced music, and I appreciate most all genre. This is a great quality show for people who appreciate and understand music. If this show continues and gets more attention, I believe it can really become a long lasting quality show.

    Is there an update on the Duets? We have been waiting for it to come back. It is good to hear real talents sing.

    I LOVE this show! I enjoyed watching every episode and listening to all of the pros, especially Jennifer Nettles — she is a fantastic singer. I hope it comes back next year, I would be very disappointed if it didn’t.

    Enjoy the show and hope they bring it back next year. My favorite part is at the beginning when 2 or 4 of the pros will do a song together.

    I like this show until Robin Thicke starts singing, than I hit the mute button. He is TERRIBLE and I feel sorry for his contestants. Hopefully if they bring this back next season they find a replacement for him. Love all the other stars!

    I thought we finally had a real singing competition -until tonight! Apparently strutting like a low price stripper trumps a great voice ,or is that only if your Robin’s last competitor. They have lost at least one fan who prefers talent over politics.

    I think that this show is realy good it diffrent and refreshing to see actual stars singing with the contestants. i think this show is cooler than american idol.

    I wouldnt be surprised if its cancelled before the show actually ends. If not, then no season 2 for sure
