Best Michael Jackson Duets of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Scream With Janet Jackson

I love this song with Michael and Janet so much as they are trying to get across the message to the media leave Michael alone, stop pressureing him, putting Michael in a fish bowl all the time. He is an INNOCENT man and he is only HUMAN with FEELINGS not a ROBOT!

I always believe in you MICHAEL - princessbev28

Love this video and song! Michael and Janet together pure brilliance! Nobody could make videos like Michael Jackson

Well this is with his beloved sister Janet... What a great duet they did. It was unique and it was sweet seeing them together making music... They should have got together more often I think... xo MJ - love4mjj

Es würde schön sein when Michael und Janet Jackson zusammen mehr Lider gesungen hätten das würde schön sein

2 I Just Can't Stop Loving You With Siedah Garrett

I just love this song, it's one of my favorites. "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" should have been Number 1 (at the TOP of the list), but, it still is in the Top 5. What a beautiful song it IS, too.

The best LIVE version, in my opinion, is the one from the movie "This Is It." Michael's voice sounded great, even though he was fifty years old, at the time. His rehearsal performances give proof that he NEVER lost ANY of his abilities, as he got older.

Well I have voted the top 2 because I really like them both!

IJCSLY is a HOT LOVE SONG for a duet!
You will enjoy every move of MJ while singing this HOT SONG! - MJstimemachine

I JUST CAN'T STOP LOVING YOUUUUU... like wow... the #1 Love Song of ALL TIME - SmoothCriminal

I love this song it's one of my favorite songs

3 Dirty Diana With Slash

Great song. But it was not Slash on the guitar. I think it must have Billy Idols guitarist, wasn't it?

Awesome song with Slash's wicket guitarist talents from his band "Guns 'N Rose" making the song the 5th #1 hit off of Michael Jackson's "Bad" album.

An incredible song. MJ and Slash in one song, all I have to say to describe it's "iconic"

I agree

4 Beat It With Eddie Van Halen

Best guitarist with best singer equals great song. - booklover1

Great song! Probably my favorite duet. Amazing music video. Pretty funny story behind trying to get Eddie Van Halen. Eddies guitarist skills beat all other guitarists including Slash, Jacob Stibby, and Mark Nopler. Best. Song. Ever.

Eddie van Halen: NETHERLANDS!

Scream is amazing but Van Halen's guitar solo on Beat It is perfection.
Fun fact: Van Halen was never actually paid for the solo, he just did it as a favor which he later regretted as the song became one of the best selling and most well known songs ever - IIBK

5 The Girl Is Mine With Paul McCartney

it feels so good to hear these two legends with amazing voices as ONE - pavitra

Probably the second best of there duets together, the best being "The Man". An excellent balance of their sounds, while "Say Say Say" was a bit too Jackson, and some may think that "The Man" was a bit to McCartney.

I love this song and Paul McCartney is more good, Michael is the best! "

Two awesome voices that compliment each other. Amazing duet!

6 Say, Say, Say With Paul McCartney

Great song!, two legends together singing a great song. This should be at least in the top 5!. Come on people!, vote for this. Or listen to it, its such a good song

What could be better than two musical geniuses coming together and performing one of the catchiest songs of all time?! :D Not to mention the amazing music video!

As if this isn't number 1!? It's got Paul McCartney another legend. So its pretty much legend against legend! Such an awesome song.

Say say say what you want but don't play games with Michael Jackson.

7 Thriller With Vincent Price

Quite simply...this is a 5* class act!!! - fleurdemimi

I love that song


Best song EVER!

8 Just Good Friends With Stevie Wonder

They just came together and killed this track. They did it in a way that it accented both of their talents equally; Showing off Michael's genuine Pop style while being perfectly accented by Stevie's background in funk and soul.

Stevie and Michael have a lot in common. And they love(d) each other a lot. Great song. Thank you both... - gboete

9 Whatever Happens With Santana

Everyone please listen to this song and then only you will know that it is an awesome song. It is like touching your heart. Please listen to it and vote for this song if you want. I want to make it one of the most popular song in the world cause it deserves that place!

Every time I listen to this BEAUTIFUL SONG, it makes me both happy and cry (in a good way) at the same time. I miss Michael Jackson, even though I don't know much about him before he passed. He will always be an ICONIC LEGEND, no matter what.

This song should be at number 1 rank. This the best ever duet and heart touching song of all time
