Starting tonight (Tuesday April 8) CBS will begin their new celebrity competition series titled "Secret Talents of the Stars." 16 celebrities will compete in a tournament-style format to determine who has the best hidden talent. Their performance will be discussed by a judging panel, however the home viewer will vote after each episode to decide who stays and who goes home each week.
John O'Hurley will host and actress Debbie Reynolds, R&B singer Brian McKnight, and producer Gavin Polone will serve as judges for Secret Talents of the Stars.
But here is the cool news. Country music fans get ready and support Clint Black. He is one of the 16 celebrities to compete. His talent will be in stand-up comedy, and if you have ever been to a Clint Black show or met Black, you know that he will be around on the show, no doubt. Black has first great writing strength and also he is naturally funny. This is going to be a great series.
Here is the complete list of celebrities comepeting:
- Country singer Clint Black performing stand-up comedy

The series premires tonight on CBS at 10pm ET/PT. Catch it and remember to support Clint Black, but only if you believe his performance is the best. I have no doubt though it will. I will be watching and keeping up with this series, I certainly hope you will as well.
