New this week, Jennifer released a track that pays tribute to the often forgotten fallen victims of the 2001 destruction at The World Trade Center. The track, “King of the City” is a heartwrenching emotional number and truly showcases the ability of a song to express something so raw in such a beautiful way.

Nettles will be joining a panel of judges that includes Lionel Richie, Kelly Clarkson and Robin Thicke. This particular show is kind of a mash-up of some of the already existing shows like “Can You Duet” on CMT and “The Voice” on NBC. The first portion of the series will follow the judges as they trek across the U.S. to find hidden talent. Then each of the celebrity judges will choose two singers to perform duets with, and they will sing in front of a live studio audience. The winner at the end of the summer season will win a recording contract with Hollywood Records. Will you watch?
