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

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.

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.

Who Are You Rooting for on Duets?

Originally posted 05/25/2012 01:30PM

Primetime's newest singing competition, ABC's Duets, premiered Thursday with the show's four mentors – Clarkson", John Legend, Jennifer Nettles and Robin Thicke – taking the stage to perform one of their own songs with each of their two protégés.

Clarkson quickly found herself the underdog. The former American Idol winner's teammates, Jordan Meredith and Jason Farol, claimed the bottom two spots based on scores from the other coaches after their renditions of Clarkson's "Stronger" and "Breaking Your Own Heart," respectively.

One of Nettles's contestants, J Rome, took the top spot after his duet with Nettles on Sugarland's "Tonight."

The debut of her ABC singing competition Duets is still six weeks away, but Kelly Clarkson has found two potential talents for her team – and she's already campaigning for a win. (On the show, Clarkson will compete with Robin Thicke, Lionel Richie and Jennifer Nettles to find the best duet partner, who will win a recording contract with Hollywood Records.)

At a concert Tuesday in San Diego, the pop star, 29, surprised fans by bringing Jason Farol and Julianna Gutierrez on stage to sing with her. "I've auditioned and auditioned, and I've come down to a couple of people I'm very, very excited about," Clarkson told the crowd. "But my test for them is to put them in front of an audience."

Kelly Clarkson Among Singers Starring in Duets

There's a new singing competition coming to TV.

Kelly Clarkson, Robin Thicke, Lionel Richie and Jennifer Nettles have been picked to search for musical protégés on Duets, which will premiere on ABC this summer.

Instead of sitting on a judges' panel, these four superstars will head out across America to find two singers to be their duet partners. Each week, the celebrity and one of their charges will take the stage and perform in front of a live studio audience.

"The simple fact that I get to go out and find two people I believe in, sing with them every week and help them accomplish their dream is an amazing thing I can't wait to be a part of," Clarkson says in a press release from ABC.
