As any Hallmark card can tell you, the holidays are about bringing people together. For some of us, that means reuniting with grown-up children, or welcoming long-lost cousins into our homes. But for musicians, it means something else: seasonal duets, often performed with the oddest of partners.
From reality-show novelty songs to stocking-stuffer EPs, Christmas isn't Christmas until two people who have no business being in the same room have crowded in front of the mic to sing a holiday classic. Why do they do this? You should just as soon ask Black Friday shoppers why they camp out for hours in front of big-box stores. Holiday magic is a compelling thing.

Days after Tina Turner tied the knot with longtime beau Erwin Bach, the couple finally held the celebration – a lavish, star-studded party Sunday at their lakeside estate in Switzerland.
Oprah Winfrey, Giorgio Armani, David Bowie, Eros Rmazzotti and Sade were among the 120 guests, according to the Today show and other news sites.
The couple's estate was reportedly decorated with 70,000 red and yellow roses from Holland. Men wore black tie to the event, and women were asked to wear white and beige.

"Where Are We Now?" ponders a plaintive David Bowie on his comeback single after seemingly retiring from music. Indeed, this august, atmospheric ballad previews his first album in 10 years, The Next Day, due out March 12.
Out of nowhere the song was dropped in the middle of the night on Jan. 8 – which just happens to be Bowie's birthday (he turned 66). The low-key release certainly suits the understated tone of the tune, which is hardly the splashy comeback one might have expected from the glam god who was once Ziggy Stardust.
Instead, Bowie plays the reflective elder statesman dispensing some existential lyrics: "The moment you know, you know you know."

February 18, 2004START SPREADING THE NEWS ... Even though Kylie Minogue is a pop diva and international celeb, she still felt the significance of her first New York City appearance, a six-song set at the club Avalon during a party for the new Queer Eye for the Straight Guy CD. "It's taken me 17 years, but I'm finally here New York," Minogue told the exuberant crowd of 3,000. This is certainly just the beginning of her Big Apple experiences, however. Before launching into her Grammy-winning single, "Come into My World," she said of her set: "This is just a taster."
