“Celebrity Duets” is the Arabic version of the American program Celebrity Duets, where Arab’s most prominent professional singers team up with 13 non-singing celebrities from different backgrounds, in front of a live studio audience, a panel of judges, and viewers who get to vote them off, in a weekly elimination competition.

A panel of judges will give their opinion after each performance, although the final call on who remains in the running is the audience's, through SMS voting.

The prize money earned at the end of each episode will be donated to a charity selected by the leaving contestant.
