Sting/Shaggy & 5 Other Strange Duets That Worked

 

Eminem/Elton John – “Stan”

This wasn’t a recorded duet, but this performance from the 2001 GRAMMY Awards is the stuff of legend, and it happened to start a wonderful friendship between the rapper and music icon.

Bing Crosby/David Bowie – “The Little Drummer Boy (Peace On Earth)”

It doesn’t get more opposite than this, but it’s become an absolute classic that EVERYONE loves during the holidays.

from "Bing Crosby's Merrie Olde Christmas" Bing passed away before this could aire on television. David did this to show that he could be normal.

Frank Sinatra/Bono – “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”

Sinatra’s Duets album came out in 1993 and one of the best collaborations and surprises on the album came via Ol’ Blue Eyes’ rendition of Cole Porter’s “I’ve Got You Under My Skin.”
