Top 10 Best Duets of All Time

The best duets are magical moments when two voices come together to create something greater than the sum of their parts. These duets hold a special place in our hearts and playlists, often delivering heightened emotion, dynamic interplay, and storytelling from dual perspectives that a solo performance just can't match.

Duets span every genre and era of music. From the crooning melodies of classic pop to the soulful strains of R&B, the high-energy beats of dance music to the expressive nuances of classical, duets have long been a beloved feature of the musical landscape. They provide an opportunity for two artists, each with their unique vocal qualities and interpretive styles, to come together and create something entirely new. Whether it's a powerful ballad, a fiery rock anthem, a groovy pop hit, or an expressive piece of classical music, a great duet can be a musical masterpiece in its own right.
The Top Ten
1 Scream - Michael and Janet Jackson

One of the best songs of all time.

Best duet really...

2 Say Something - Jackie Evancho and Cheyenne Jackson

The reason so few people have heard this duet is that is was only on the DVD of Jackie's 'Awakening' concert and never released as a single or put on a CD album. There is a Youtube video of it on Jackie's Vevo channel that currently has 1.1 million views.

She knows how to harmonize and not overpower, that is something a few can do well and I love this more than the original version.

Also on the concert DVD. Simple, and simply marvelous, with just a piano accompaniment. It should be made a single for download on iTunes/

3 O Bhavre (Daud) - Yesudas and Asha Bhosle

Yesudas God of Music. Yesudas = Music or Music = Yesudas. Voice of India
Yesudas is best singer in the world. Yesudas is my favorite singer. Yesudas is the favorite singer of AR Rahman.

Yeah True God Singing in his voice...

4 Summer Wine - Ville Valo and Natalia Avelon

What a classy song, Ville's enchanting voice gave Frank Sinatra a huge blow for his original version.

So beautiful, so amazing! One of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. Villes talent goes beyond most male singers!

Beautiful Ville voice but not fit with Natalia Avelon, a better female voice will be better

5 A Thousand Years - Jackie Evancho and Fernando Varela

Recorded as part of Fernando's live PBS Special, this duet features soaring harmonies that give the listener goosebumps. Also available on Jackie's new album, "Two Hearts".

6 Forever - Regine Velasquez and Martin Nievera

Awesome voices and personalities. The best.

The best duet

Twas a perfect for the both of you guys! I wish to have a solo with The Concert king Martin N. & Asia's song Bird Ms. Regine V. Alcasid... Thanks!

7 Love the Way You Lie - Rihanna and Eminem

How can this not be inside top 5! It at least deserve a top ten position. I hope, some of the crap in the top ten will fall and this will get a place pretty soon.

This song is amazing, and their voices go perfect with each other! You can really tell how much effort each of them put into this song!

Em is best. Rihanna is not bad.

8 Under Pressure - Queen and David Bowie

Some duos are sung with a pair that make the song work. Many times the wrong people cover a song and it loses something. The combo of certain voices doesn't do the song justice.

This should be (at least) in top 10, anyway, this list is appalling...

I can't believe I had to add this.

9 Hallelujah - Peter Hollens and Jackie Evancho

Gorgeous rendition of Leonard Cohen song. Peter sings multiple a cappella parts. Jackie simply has the most beautiful singing voice in the world.

A new milestone in duet singing!

Just WOW! Peter is fantastic, and little Jackie Evancho (! ) is only 14 years old?! Really?

10 Don't Go Breaking My Heart - Elton John and Kiki Dee
The Contenders
11 Kalyana - K.S. Chithra and K.J. Yesudas

Chithra simply has the most beautiful singing voice in the world.

Yesudas the golden voice of music.

Chithra is great

12 Stan - Eminem and Dido
13 Say Say Say - Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney

I was hoping this would be the number one duet!

Simply the best

14 When You Wish Upon a Star - Tony Bennett and Jackie Evancho

This song is amazing

15 I See the Light - Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi
16 Proud Mary - Ike and Tina Turner
17 I've Had the Time of My Life - Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes

Just a great song!

18 Somebody That I Used to Know - Gotye and Kimbra

The way that Gotye soft voice in verse mixes with Kimbra's stronger voice, they portray both sides of the story the music wants to tell. It's quite beautiful...

This one is the BEST! Especially for girl-girl or girl-boy.

An amazingly addictive song! Love it

19 Barcelona - Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballé
20 Magkasuyo Buong Gabi - Janno Gibbs and Regine Velasquez
21 Time to Say Goodbye - Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman
22 Endless Love - Diana Ross and Lionel Richie
23 O Holy Night - Jackie Evancho and Vittorio Grigolo
24 Just Give Me a Reason - P!nk and Nate Ruess
