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.

As one half of Sugarland, Georgia native Jennifer Nettles never shied away from mixing it up musically, blending classic country with pop and rock into the country duo's sound – and even daring to drop a reggae rap in their platinum-selling "Stuck Like Glue." Now with a solo debut on the horizon (her That Girl CD is due in January, while the single of the same name is currently top 40 on the country charts), the Grammy-winning singer continues to test new musical ground.

So it's no surprise that Nettles, who is hosting the Spotify CMA party Nov. 3 with PEOPLE Country, has eclectic tastes when it comes to music listening as well. But, she says, with the birth of son Magnus last December, her quiet time for discovering new music and appreciating the luxury of listening are at a premium.
