John Legend and Simon Lythgoe are teaming up to produce Love At First Song, a musical competition program that promotes the idea of romantic duets as a first step to falling in love.

The program matches singers who have similar musical tastes in the hopes that those tastes reflect who they are and what they long for in a soulmate. In the process, the contestants might make some beautiful—and entertaining—music together.
