Robin Thicke: “Middle America Doesn’t Know Who I Am!”
The Urban Daily
Despite being a Grammy Award winning singer and songwriter, Robin Thicke still feels like an underdog.
According to reports, Thicke believes he’s an underdog because he hasn’t made himself known to middle America. Robin Thicke recently spoke to CNN about why he chose to become a judge/mentor on the reality competition show Duets. Thicke responded, “I’ve really only had one song that played on the pop charts. All my music lives on black radio. So, TV is a huge opportunity to be seen by everyone in Middle America and all these other places where I don’t really tour.”
Robin’s competitors on Duets include Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and country singer Jennifer Nettles. The premise of Duets is four judges/mentors pick singers to sing duets with each week until a winner is crowned. The winner will receive a record deal from Hollywood Records.

Though Duets is a competitive show, Robin Thicke says they don’t take themselves too seriously. “I don’t think any of us are taking it too personally, because we all actually truly respect each other. Jennifer Nettles, Kelly [Clarkson] and John [Legend], these are great singers. For me, I’m the underdog of the group. I’m just happy to be part of it and give [the] best I can each week.”
