While many of her pop compatriots were at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, Katy Perry was hanging out with some country folk. You can’t get any more country than Dolly Parton herself.

The 31-year-old “Roar” singer, dressed in Perry-fied Western attire, and the 70-year-old legend hit the stage at the 2016 ACM Awards. Together, the lovely ladies performed a medley of Parton’s hits- “Coat of Many Colors,” “Jolene,” and “9 to 5.” Dolly was liviiiiiiing during “Jolene” with her sassy ad libs about that hussy. I loved it.

Parton was also in attendance because her TV movie based on her life, Coat of Many Colors, was being honored. The NBC film received the Tex Ritter Award which honors a movie “released and / or receiving major exposure during the preceding calendar year, featuring or utilizing country music.” Check out their incredible duet below.

the-weeknd-lauryn-hill-duet

The Grammys are all about witnessing artists pairing up to deliver iconic duets. The Weeknd gave a stellar vocal performance at last week’s ceremony, but that’s not exactly how producers originally planned it.

The somewhat reclusive Lauryn Hill was reportedly supposed to join the Canadian singer for a duet on his hit, “In The Night.” Due to last-minute complications, that epic collaboration never came to be. That is, until Friday night.

Hill surprised The Tonight Show audience during The Weeknd’s set. Not surprisingly, it was fantastic despite a couple pitchy moments from Ms. Hill. Doesn’t matter, I adore both these musicians. Check out the duet below.

After numerous teasers but no premiere, I was beginning to worry this duet would never see the light. Finally, it’s arrived and worth the wait.

Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez team up for “We Don’t Talk Anymore” off Puth’s forthcoming album, Nine Track Mind, in stores this week. The track is pretty darn flawless. The acoustic-like production with its breezy vibe is catered for Top 40 radio. If this doesn’t do damage there and on the charts, color me shocked.

Fingers crossed an accompanying visual debuts shortly. These two would sizzle on screen together. Give “We Don’t Talk Anymore” a spin below. The chorus is undeniably catchy.

After being relatively out of the spotlight for the past couple of years to take care of her husband, Celine Dion has been popping up everywhere as of late. She delivered an emotional performance in honor of Paris at the American Music Awards and recently paid homage to Frank Sinatra for Grammy’s all-star tribute to Ol’ Blue Eyes. To all this, I say welcome back Celine. You’ve been missed.

The 47-year-old Canadian chanteuse dazzled during Michael Buble’s annual Christmas special. She gave a gorgeous rendition of “O Holy Night” and then joined Buble to give a rousing cover of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s “Happy Xmas (War is Over).” Her signature powerful vocals were on display for both numbers. Check them both out below.

Whomever Selena Gomez is pictured with these days, it instantly sparks dating rumors. Such is the case when the “Same Old Love” singer shared a photo of Charlie Puth and herself playfully posing. It appears their hanging out was more on the professional front than personal.

Puth took to Instagram to preview his new track featuring Justin Bieber’s ex. “We Don’t Talk Anymore” is off his forthcoming debut album, Nine Track Mind. Based on the teaser, the track has potential to match, if not, surpass his Meghan Trainor-assisted hit single, “Marvin Gaye.” Give it a listen below.

Logo’s forthcoming holiday special is certainly living up to its title, RuPaul’s Drag Race: Green Screen Christmas. The first promo featured RuPaul getting her glamazon on in front of intergalactic backdrops. The latest one is even more fantastically campy.

Michelle Visage and the 54-year-old drag superstar perform their duet, “From Your Heart,” with an assortment of cheesy green-screened locations cycling through. It’s oddly riveting. If this is just a taste of what’s to come, the entire special will no doubt be a glittery extravaganza. Check out a preview of the Slay Belles track below.

RuPaul’s Drag Race: Green Screen Christmas airs on Logo on December 13 and will feature plenty of Drag Race alums. The music video for “Merry Christmas Mary” will also premiere that night.

avril-lavigne-nick-carter-duet

During their respective hey days, I’m sure neither Nick Carter nor Avril Lavigne would’ve thought they’d team up one day for a duet. After all, she was the princess of skater punk while he was part of a band that was the definition of pop. Years later, the icons from the early 2000s find themselves working together.

“I talked to Avril about doing a collab together, and we became friends – we were on tour together with the Backstreet Boys,” Carter explains. “She was into the idea, and she really liked it. She liked the song that I had written, and she put her vocals on the song, and it was really cool.”

Get Over Me” is off Carter’s new solo album, All American, which was released this week. It’s a cute collabo but doesn’t scream smash hit. Truthfully, it sounds a bit dated. Give it a listen below and share your thoughts afterwards.

Over the weekend, the Global Citizen Festival took place in Central Park in front of 60,000 fans. The fourth annual event, curated by Chris Martin, aims to bring awareness to global poverty in hopes of eradicating it by 2030. Once again, a star-studded lineup gathered for the great cause.

Though the event saw some other memorable surprise duets including Coldplay bringing out Ariana Grande, my favorite involved everyone’s favorite English ginger and the bodacious hair-flipping beast that is Beyonce. The two gave a killer acoustic performance of Bey’s hit, “Drunk In Love.” Sheeran has covered the track several times previously, but this time, he finally got to jam on it with Queen B herself. Check it out below.
