Simon Says: Little Richard rocks

When it came time for Simon Cowell to choose his panel of judges for “Duets”, which debuts Aug. 29 on Fox, he knew he had to have Little Richard.

Little Richard, he’s an artist, he’s a personality. I’ve seen so many shows when the panel is boring, so when I heard Little Richard was interested in (being a judge), I said book him. (Judge) David Foster is very serious and Little Richard is a little more unpredictable. He’s not the obvious choice and that’s why I liked it.

The show teams singing legends from Clint Black to Gladys Knight with actors and other personalities not known for their singing ability.

So will the judges hold back on their snippy comments?

Cowell thinks not. But what will be more interesting is hearing what the celebrities have to say to the judges.

I think that celebrities tend to be, as I say it, a little more lippy.
