Former XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS star Lucy Lawless is launching a singing career after developing her talent on the reality competition CELEBRITY DUETS. The 38-year-old star discovered her love of singing while competing on the show and has decided to hit the road. She explains, "It almost has put paid to my acting career because it was too much fun! I went and did this singing show a couple of months ago. "I sang with Smokey Robinson and Dionne Warwick and the most amazing people. It blew my socks off and that's all I can think about, it's like a total drug. I'm completely addicted to it!" The star has already sold out a performance at The Roxy nightclub in Los Angeles and eventually wants to take her show to New York City. She claims it took a lot of courage to create to get up on stage adding, "I'm doing a show on 13 January (07) at The Roxy. I'm going to sing! I've got balls the size of Africa!"
