Jennifer Nettles Slays “I Will Always Love You” on Duets [Video]
I feel like we’ve been here before. I feel like I have made this confession before. But I have to own up again. Ya’ll know I love Kelly Clarkson, right? I am a huge fan of her voice, her personality and her music and she’s really the only reason I started watching ABC’s talent search, Duets. That said, she’s NOT the reason I keep going back. Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles is. Not only does Jennifer have the best contestant on the show (J Rome), but she is consistently showing the most range and versatility with her own voice. Yes. On this show (doomed as it is), Nettles is absolutely running away with the thing. Her duets with the show’s front-runner, J Rome, are just spine-tingling. Check out last week’s highlight . . . a chilling rendition of “I Will Always Love You.”
Duets is failing pretty miserably in the ratings and may not live to see a second season. But Jennifer Nettles is still rocking it out each and every week and will do so again tonight, I’m sure, when the judges and contestants tackle “songs from this millenium.”
Duets airs Thursdays on ABC at 8pm CST. Tune in while you can.
