Kelly Clarkson is set to appear on a new US talent show called 'Duets' this summer alongside the legendary Lionel Ritchie.

The 'Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)' singer will be involved in the new concept show which will see the judge's head out of their chairs and onto the stage to join the contestants for two collaborations each week.

Other musicians who will appear on the show include Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles and Robin Thicke with the winner receiving a record contract with Hollywood records.

Kelly rose to fame after winning the first ever series of the hugely popular US show American Idol and the latest series sees Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez return for a second stint on the judge's panel.

Meanwhile, the star recently confirmed that her next single would be 'Dark Side' and she is currently preparing to shoot the music video for the track.
