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.

The Voice is all about aspiring singers reaching for their dreams. But as Monday night's battles showed, getting to the top can be challenging – and as much about courage and confidence as it is about talent and encouragement.
"I don't know how to coach anyone to play it safe," Cee Lo Green said. "The real reward is the risk you take."
Green pitted two singers against each other who were fighting their own personal battles. Katrina survivor Alexis Marceaux's challenge was to loosen up her technically trained style. Daniel Rosa needed to conquer his nerves – and this was his second time on the show.

"I came up with Britney, we were very close," Aguilera, 31, said during a press conference in Malibu, Calif., at the home of The Voice producer Mark Burnett on Sunday evening. "Our paths have always crossed. They'll continue to cross. I welcome her to this family of fun and entertainment and finding new talent. Britney's a pro. She's going to give great advice!"

Don't expect Mary J. Blige to join the ranks of celebrities adopting – she's already got her hands full.
"I don't think I'll do foster care or adopt, to be quite honest," the singer, 38, said at the Cipriani 42nd Street for New Yorkers for Children event where she was honored. "I barely have time for my own children. To adopt more children and not have time for them, that [would be] poor parenting on my [part]."
Blige is stepmother to two children, Jordan, 11, and Nas, 10, with husband Kendu Isaacs, who also has a grown daughter, Brianna, 23.
