    Grammy Performers Make Music History Together

    The Grammy Awards Deliver Awesome Live Performances

    Scott Stevens, Yahoo Contributor Network

    The Grammy Awards honor performers for their achievements in the music industry. The real excitement though is reserved for the live performances that serve as highlights of the award ceremony. These mini-concerts bring together performers from different genres and often different eras. Here are a few of the best performance collaborations in Grammy history.

    Tony Bennett & Carrie Underwood - 2012

    A testament to his diverse musical taste, and to her versatile singing skills, Bennett and country singer Carrie Underwood sang " It Had to Be You" , a classic of the American Songbook first recorded in 1924. Ever since Tony Bennett made an impressive and well-deserved comeback in the 1990's, the crooner has sought out other artists to collaborate with. His albums Duets and Duets II paired him with the great performers of our day.


    Beyonce & Prince - 2004
    Anytime that Prince takes the stage, the crowd response is thunderous. When he performed a "Purple Rain/ Baby I'm a Star" medley with Beyonce her light was just beginning to shine as a solo artist following her success with Destiny's Child. These days Beyonce commands as enthusiastic of an audience response as anyone on the music scene thanks to her continuous string of hit singles.


    Peter Gabriel & Cirque du Soleil - 1993
    Shedding his purple Zoot Suit to reveal an outrageous muscle man body outfit, Peter Gabriel thrilled the audience when he collaborated with the Canadian performance group who according to its website is known for its "audacity, creativity, imagination....." Perfect for the artist whose audience had become used to the brilliant imagery of his groundbreaking music videos. With the help of these talented performers, Gabriel's performance of "Steam" brought his genius to the live stage.

    Barbra Streisand &
    Neil Diamond - 1980
    Even to this day, it would be hard to find two performers more engaged with each other during a duet than these superstars while singing "You Don't Bring Me Flowers", a #1 hit for the artists. Like lovers exchanging wedding vows, they locked eyes and slowly moved into each other arms. They finally embraced as they finished the song to the cheers and tears of an adoring crowd.

    Ella Fitzgerald & Mel Torme - 1976

    The First Lady of Jazz and The Velvet Fog were on hand to present the Best Jazz Album award. Tasked with explaining to the viewers what Jazz is, they chose instead to scat sing a juicy toe-tapping duet. Ellla playfully said after the performance " Well if they don't know what Jazz is now, that's just too bad." Also in a lively mood, Torme replied "You're absolutely right."

    The thing for me is that is what makes Billboard so transparent. They don't even try to hide their obvious "promo articles".

    Suggesting Taylor Swift is among "the best" of performances when she is known for actually having one of the most publicly hated performances in Grammy History is just a joke.

    Billboard makes themselves less and less relevant everyday.
