Roller skating. Greek mythology. Hollywood. Olivia Newton-John. Gene Kelly. Electric Light Orchestra. By some measures, Xanadu should have been a hit.

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.

Olivia Newton-John's beloved older sister, Rona Newton-John, has died after a battle with brain cancer.
"My beautiful sister Rona sadly passed on May 24th in Los Angeles. It was May 25th in Australia – which was our mother Irene's birthday," Olivia, 64, wrote on Facebook.
She adds: "Rona died of a very aggressive brain tumor and mercifully suffered no pain. She was surrounded by the love of her four children – Fiona, Brett, Tottie and Emerson, and her wonderful friends. I will miss her forever – my beautiful, smart, talented, funny, brave sister Rona."

To many, John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John will always be high school loves Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsen from the 1978 hit Grease. Now, the two have reunited for a holiday album – and a Grease-themed video.
In the video for "I Think You Might Like It," Travolta flies a plane home while Newton-John drives a classic convertible full of gifts. The pair reunite in a field to perform some dance moves reminiscent of their Grease finale, "You're the One That I Want."

Olivia Newton-John's onetime boyfriend, who disappeared in 2005 and was presumed to have drowned at sea, may be alive after having faked his own vanishing act, according to a private investigator hired by Dateline NBC.
Former cameraman Patrick McDermott apparently slipped out of sight to escape debts and let his son cash in a $100,000 life-insurance policy, believes investigator Philip Klein.
Though devastated at the time, Newton-John did move on after McDermott was presumed to be permanently gone. In summer 2008 she married natural-health businessman John Easterling.
But, Klein told the NBC news program, the singer regularly logs onto the PI's Web site for updates on McDermott, who has been sighted nearly 20 times along the Mexican and South American coastline.
