J. Rome was named winner of America’s singing show “Duets” on Thursday night (July 19). John Glosson came in second, which is not a surprise either. Jennifer Nettles really found herself two good singers to partner with (Rome & Glosson). Their final song, “For Good,” was excellent.
Fil-American Jason Farol took the third place, his mentor Kelly Clarkson said, “it didn’t matter if he won or not. The fact that he made it to the finale was good enough.”
The winner of Duets Season 1 won a recording contract from Hollywood Records. Congratulations J. Rome!
