BIOGRAPHY®: DURAN DURAN
Premieres January 10 @ 9PM ET/ 8PM CT/ 10PM PT
The strikingly handsome quintet from Birmingham, led by singer Simon Lebon and keyboardist Nick Rhodes, pumped out three decades of top hits including "Hungry Like The Wolf," "Rio," "Save A Prayer" and "The Reflex." Their music videos, often shot in exotic locales around the world, became MTV chart-toppers and their popular live act peaked with a global audience of millions at 1985's "Live Aid." Although Duran Duran has never broken up, they have changed their line-up through the years and are currently on tour to support their newest release, “Red Carpet Massacre.”
BIOGRAPHY ®: KELLY CLARKSON
Premieres January 17 @ 9PM ET/ 8PM CT/ 10PM PT
Kelly Clarkson’s life story sounds like a Hollywood script – small-town girl finds success in the big city – but for Clarkson it is a true story. After growing up in Burleson, Texas, Clarkson took her homemade CD and headed to California in search of her big break. After much disappointment, she moved back home, where she worked as a cocktail waitress and vacuum salesperson. In 2002, Clarkson entered American Idol and sang "A Moment Like This," and won the contest. She has stayed at the top of the charts with the rocker "Since You've Been Gone," picked up two Grammy Awards for her second multi-platinum disc, "Breakaway," and has sold over 16 million albums worldwide. Her third album, “My December” was released June 26, 2007.
