Just Duet is a singing competition for aspiring singers who are between 16 to 25 years old with excellent stage presence and vocal skills. The segment premiered on 1 February 2016 and concluded on 7 May 2016.

Unlike ordinary singing contests, the segment provided its contestants an opportunity to perform duets with well-known local singers with the use of a split screen method. The contestants were eventually given an opportunity to perform live in person with the celebrities.

The segment received its inspiration from the Sing! Karaoke mobile application by app developer Smule, which allows fans to perform a duet with their favorite musicians. The app allows celebrity singers to record videos singing one half of a duet, leaving space for fans to record their own contributions then share the results online. The app became viral after Grammy-winning pop artist Jessie J recorded a duet video for her song "Flashlight", which was used by millions of people on the mobile application.

Mackie Cao of Los Baños, Laguna was hailed as the grand winner of the competition. She was paired with singer and actress Julia Anne San Jose. Her winning song was the 2004 single "I Believe" by American Idol season 3 winner Fantasia Barrino.

Overview

Registration and audition

The singing contest was open to amateur and professional singers who would like to get a chance to perform with some of the country's famous and well-respected singers using a split-screen method. It was open to individuals who are between 16 and 25 years old with excellent stage presence and vocal skills. Auditions were held at the Broadway Centrum.

Meanwhile, celebrities who participated in the segment recorded videos singing one half of a duet for a set of songs. They then left some gaps in their prerecorded performance so the contestants can fill in the missing lyrics and perform the duet with them. The celebrity partners performed their own hits or provided covers of popular songs for the contest.

Daily rounds

The daily rounds were held on weekdays from 1 February to 30 March 2016. The hosts rotated between Allan K, Pia Guanio, Ryan Agoncillo, Ruby Rodriguez, and Pauleen Luna.

Two or three contestants each day competed against one another in the daily rounds. A celebrity partner and a song were randomly selected for each contestant. The contestants performed live onstage, filling in the spaces of their celebrity partner's prerecorded performance which was displayed on a large digital screen. A signal light indicated whose turn it was to sing throughout the performance.

The panel of judges for the daily rounds consisted of three Dabarkads hosts. Regular judges included Allan K, Patricia Tumulak, Aicelle Santos, Pauleen Luna, Pia Guanio, Alden Richards, and Joey de Leon. Members of the studio audience participate in picking the winners through text voting.

Daily winners received ₱20,000 and advanced to the weekly finals of the competition.

Weekly finals

In the weekly finals, the daily winners were narrowed down into the top two or three finalists who would advance to the semifinal rounds. The contestants performed a different song once again with the celebrity singer whom they were paired with in the daily rounds. This time, the panel of judges included well-known singers as well as Dabarkads hosts. The one, two, or three winners of the weekly finals each received ₱50,000 and advanced to the semifinal rounds of the competition. The nineteen winners made up the contest's Elite Circle of Winners.

The two contestants performed the same song, making sure that their voices complement each other while at the same time stand out from each other. Winners received ₱30,000 and advanced to the qualifying rounds.

Qualifying rounds

In the qualifying rounds, the contestants were finally given the opportunity to perform live duets with the music icons. The contestants were asked to practice four or five songs prior to this competition. Each contestant randomly selected the name of a celebrity who became their partner for their performance. The contestants must sing their celebrity partner's song choice. Winners advanced to the grand finals of the competition.

Wildcard rounds

Contestants who lost in previous rounds were given the opportunity to compete in the segment once more. Each day, two finalists were randomly paired together along with a celebrity singer to form a musical trio. The two contestants performed the same song, making sure that their voices complement each other while at the same time stand out from each other. Winners advanced to the wildcard qualifying round.

The wildcard qualifying round determined the three contestants that would move on to the grand finals of the competition. The contestants were given the opportunity to sing live with pop rock band Aegis. The three winners joined the rest of the finalists in the grand finals.

Grand finals

The grand finals was held from 25 April to 28 April 2016. In the week-long grand finals, either two or three contestants were paired with each of the four featured music icons whom they will be paired with. Contestants competing on the same day performed different songs with the same celebrity partner.
