Cheech and Bolton?

(antiMusic) Cheech won't be teaming up with Chong. Could it be Michael Bolton instead? Only from the mind of Simon Cowell… Yes Simon has a new TV show that debuts on August 29th on that bastion of high quality intellectual stimulation… FOX. No, it's not When Idols Attack, it's Celebrity Duets. The premise is simple, match a star (or formerly a star) singer with a celeb (that may or may not have used up their 15 minutes of fame) for a duet each week with the requisite elimination.

On the celeb side you have Cheech Marin, Lucy "Xena" Lawless, Lea Thompson McFly, Alfonso Ribeiro (Fresh Prince…), wrestler Chris Jericho, Olympic gold medalist Carly Patterson, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy's Jai Rodriguez, Queer As Folk star Hal Sparks.

On the singer side, these artists have been mentioned or confirmed for the show: Cyndi Lauper, Smokey Robinson, Dionne Warwick, Randy Travis, Brian McKnight, Macy Gray, Patti LaBelle, Kenny Loggins, Chaka Khan, Richard Marx, Michael Bolton, Clint Black, and Aaron Neville, Belinda Carlisle, Taylor Dayne, Peter Frampton, James Ingram, Wynonna Judd, and Lee Ann Womack
