Listen to the 10 Strangest Holiday Duets of All Time

From Bing to Bieber, Listen to the 10 Strangest Holiday Duets of All Time

Originally posted 12/04/2013 12:00AM

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.

What would Kurt Cobain look like today? How about Jimi Hendrix? That was the question Sachs Media Group recently asked of photo restoration and manipulation company PhoJoe: The end result is this series of hypothetically-aged portraits of deceased musicians. Enjoy the twinge of nostalgia, then tell us – what do you speculate each of these musicians would be doing right now?

Lisa Marie Presley's New Job Is Selling Fish and Chips

Originally posted 10/02/2012 08:15AM

Call it a case of the King's daughter meeting King Neptune.

Yes, that's Lisa Marie Presley, eager to immerse herself in local village life, literally getting a taste of her adopted country by selling fish and chips from a parked van in East Sussex, near the $14.5-million home she shares with husband Michael Lockwood and her children, reports the U.K.'s Daily Mail.

Kim Scales, who owns the Mr. Chippy food wagon in Presley's hamlet of Rotherfield, told the newspaper, "We were all laughing, because not one of the locals realized who it was. She served one local [an order of ] double fishcake and chips, and he didn't have a clue that she was Elvis Presley's daughter."

Priscilla & Lisa Marie Presley Attend Vigil 35 Years After Elvis's Death

Thirty-five years after his death, Elvis Presley is still the King.

Tens of thousand of Elvis fans who gathered at Graceland for a candlelight vigil Wednesday night, on the eve of the 35th anniversary of his death at age 42, were treated to a special appearance by Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley – the first time the late singer's ex-wife and daughter have attended the annual vigil together.

"I've always avoided this because I felt that it would be too emotional," Lisa Marie, 44, told the crowd, reports the Associated Press. "But I really felt it was important to come down here tonight. I love you very, very, very much."

"You should see this from our point of view. It's amazing," said Priscilla, 67, as she looked out from the stage at a sea of burning candles. "It's truly a sight to behold."

Nun Who Starred with Elvis Headed to This Year's Oscars

All right, no jokes about "who" she'll be wearing on the red carpet.

But the beautiful blonde '60s starlet whom baby boomers knew as Dolores Hart will be attending this year's Academy Awards – in her longtime real-life role, as a Benedictine Nun named Mother Dolores.

Currently the subject of an Oscar-nominated HBO documentary, God Is the Bigger Elvis, Mother Dolores, who in her Hollywood days made Loving You and King Creole with Presley (and 11 movies in all), will be at the Kodak Theatre on Feb. 26 right along with nominees Meryl Streep, George Clooney and Brad Pitt, and presumably on stage should the film about her win the gold, her rep confirms to PEOPLE. And she'll be wearing her habit.

"In a contemplative life," Mother Dolores, now 73 and still a voting member of the Academy, told PEOPLE in 1998, "I've stayed more in touch with what is going on in the heart of our profession than I did when I was reading Variety only to find my own name."

Lisa Marie Presley Pays Emotional Visit to Graceland

When Lisa Marie Presley arrived to preview Graceland's new exhibit dedicated to her childhood relationship with her father, Elvis Presley, she was overcome with emotion.

"I walked in with my twins [Harper and Finley, 3], looked around, and I gasped. I couldn't tell if I was going to laugh or cry," she tells PEOPLE.

The exhibit, called Elvis ... Through His Daughter's Eyes, opened Wednesday (Lisa Marie's 44th birthday) and features childhood mementos including her crib, first baby shoes and a gold ID bracelet her father gave her, among other artifacts.
