Kelly Clarkson and Chris Daughtry – Duet Scrapped?

That duet between Kelly Clarkson and Chris Daughtry recorded by producer Howard Benson may have been scrapped, according to Vote for the Worst

From a poster at the fansite Kelly Clarkson Express:

Chris went in and redid his vocals and the label didn’t like it. There were also 2 other songs that they were considering to be the duet if the first one didn’t work out but they couldn’t get the 3 of them together again at the same time, as of now the duet has been scrapped.

Hm. If this is true, I’m a little disappointed. I want to hear what they sound like together. If the duet has been scrapped, maybe we’ll get lucky and the track will leak onto the internet.

Kelly’s album is set for the first quarter of next year. Daughtry’ next release is headed for a summer ’09 release.

    If that’s true, it completely sucks. I was really looking forward to hearing two of my favorite Idols together. :cry_wp:

    Unfortunate. But if the recording that they’ve got really doesn’t work, I hope that it doesn’t leak.

    i wish kelly would do a duet with david cook, instead. that’d be epic.

    I was coming here to post that very thought vixen.

    Bummer! I was hoping to hear them together, or better yet Kelly with David Cook. You can get a glimpse here of what they might sound like if they all sang together. It’s a compilation of different Idols (and a few other pop singers) performing the Star Spangled Banner. Chris follows Kelly, who follows David.

    Too bad. Hope it still happens. This was something I really wanted to hear.

    Darn! I really wanted to hear that! I cant see why the that duet wouldn’t work… seems like a great combo to me.

  • tinydcfan

    Count me amongst the David/Kelly duet fanclub. They are my two fave Idols and I have long hoped they would collaborate. Maybe now it can happen!

  • bean99

    That’s too bad. I’d love to hear their voices together.

  • CRB

    I think that, if true, this is the best outcome for Daughtry. Chris should be distancing himself publicly from all things Idol and not embracing them.

    I fear that this is just a bit of label counter spin to the picture coming out and the duet will live on….as a surprise!

    I love Daughtry, but I think David Cook is more suited for a duet with Kelly IMO. With David Cook’s range and ability to manipulate his voice, especially on the high notes, and the feeling he puts into his songs, and the emphasis on the words, come on now, is there anyone out there that doesn’t think that David and Kelly would be a match in heaven (vocal wise)?
