PEOPLE's Semi-Official Guide to Kissing Your Award on Oscar Night

Originally posted 02/25/2014 08:20AM

Of all the awards shows this season, the Oscars provide the best opportunity for the winners to whip out a classic trophy kiss. The Emmy is too spiky and the Golden Globe makes you look megalomaniacal, but the Oscar statue is just right – a friendly little man made entirely out of gold. Who wouldn't want to kiss him?

But not all Oscar kisses are created equally.

Just as kissing a human requires a hundred instant mental calculations – Cheek or lips? How much tongue? – so does kissing an Oscar. Below, a look at some of the ways Oscar winners have chosen to smooch their statue at their moment of triumph.

CeeLo Green may be leaving NBC's The Voice, but the singer has plenty of things on his plate to keep him busy.

He will be joining Lionel Richie on tour for a slew of summer dates starting in May. He'll also be making his movie debut in the upcoming film Can A Song Save Your Life. And Green says he'll also be juggling several projects for NBC.

"NBC and I plan to continue our relationship with several new co-ventures including a new music show, while we also explore our ideas for me to create and host a new show of my own," Green told Ellen DeGeneres after announcing his departure from The Voice. "I will not go quietly into the night ... expect more great music and entertainment done in my own unique unmistakable and undeniable way."

The debut of her ABC singing competition Duets is still six weeks away, but Kelly Clarkson has found two potential talents for her team – and she's already campaigning for a win. (On the show, Clarkson will compete with Robin Thicke, Lionel Richie and Jennifer Nettles to find the best duet partner, who will win a recording contract with Hollywood Records.)

At a concert Tuesday in San Diego, the pop star, 29, surprised fans by bringing Jason Farol and Julianna Gutierrez on stage to sing with her. "I've auditioned and auditioned, and I've come down to a couple of people I'm very, very excited about," Clarkson told the crowd. "But my test for them is to put them in front of an audience."

Kelly Clarkson Among Singers Starring in Duets

Originally posted 03/08/2012 08:30AM



There's a new singing competition coming to TV.

Kelly Clarkson, Robin Thicke, Lionel Richie and Jennifer Nettles have been picked to search for musical protégés on Duets, which will premiere on ABC this summer.

Instead of sitting on a judges' panel, these four superstars will head out across America to find two singers to be their duet partners. Each week, the celebrity and one of their charges will take the stage and perform in front of a live studio audience.

"The simple fact that I get to go out and find two people I believe in, sing with them every week and help them accomplish their dream is an amazing thing I can't wait to be a part of," Clarkson says in a press release from ABC.

The Voice: RaeLynn, Tony Lucca Win Their Battles

Originally posted 03/06/2012 08:45AM

With the teams of 12 in place, coaches Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green faced tough decisions Monday night as The Voice's battle rounds began.

But they had help: Kelly Clarkson and Shelton's wife Miranda Lambert assisted Team Blake; Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds and Ne-Yo advised Team Cee Lo; Alanis Morissette and Robin Thicke helped Team Adam; and Jewel and Lionel Richie guided Team Christina.

Levine picked U2's "Beautiful Day" for Chris Cauley and former Mouseketeer Tony Lucca. Both singers were strong in battle. Cee Lo said Lucca "articulated the song a lot clearer." Blake said he'd choose Cauley because his pitch was spot on. But Levine opted for Lucca saying, "Tony, you blow me away."
