So you made onto a talent competition TV show? Fast forward to the finale week! Before the country votes and either Ryan Seacrest, Carson Daly or Nick Cannon reveals if you won the show and its prizes…you must perform with your mentor or a celebrity that you have admired for a majority of your life! Before you start thinking about that performance…Do not panic! Here are 10 examples of how two or multiple artists delivered some incredible collaborations during this year: 10. Jeff Gutt & the Goo Goo Dolls’ John Rzeznik: “Iris” (X Factor USA: Season Three) If you are a rocker, then this duet is a must watch! The remaining Over-25 artist’s vocals matched the Goo Goo Dolls’ frontman and they breathed new life into the alternative rock anthem! 9. Jacquie Lee, Matthew Schuler & Christina Aguilera: “Jackson Medley” (The Voice: Season Five) Team Christina paid tribute to both Janet and Michael Jackson with an intriguing medley that featured “Black Cat,” “Scream” and “Bad!” From Xtina’s sassy entrance to Matthew channelling MJ in the King of Pop’s classic 1987 music video, this was one of the show’s best group performances in its five-season history. 8. Michelle Chamuel & Usher: “One” (The Voice: Season Four) The Voice: Season Four runner-up teamed up with her mentor for a superb cover of one of U2’s iconic songs! 7. Sasha Allen, Kris Thomas & Shakira: “I’ll Stand By You” (The Voice: Season Four) Sasha and Kris joined their “Hips Don’t Lie” coach to pay tribute to the victims and survivors of the Moore, Oklahoma tornado. Their harmonies were in sync and gave everyone chills. 6. Angie Miller, Adam Lambert & Jessie J: “Titanium”/”Domino” (American Idol: Season 12) Despite being eliminated during the Final Three week, Angie Miller had the best Idol duet experience! First, she teamed up one of the show’s most celebrated artists (Adam Lambert) to deliver slow-tempo cover of the David Guetta and Sia dance anthem.  However, her eyes lit up when she sang “Domino” with her hero: former Voice UK coach Jessie J! 5. Will Champlin & Adam Levine: “Tiny Dancer” (The Voice: Season Five) Fan-favorite Will Champlin teamed up with his coach for one of the best contestant-coach in the show’s history! Between their harmonies on the chorus to playfully going back and forth with the verses, they performed a hauntingly beautiful cover that would have made Sir Elton John smile. 4. Forte & Josh Groban: “To Where You Are/Brave” (America’s Got Talent: Season Eight   The opera super-group teamed up with the man that inspired the group to form in the first place on the AGT finale. While the trio delivered brilliant solos and pitch-perfect harmonies, I would commend Josh for his performance and for being a professional despite fighting an illness. 3. Sam Bailey & Nicole Scherzinger: “And I Am Telling You” (X Factor UK: Season 10) X Factor UK winner Sam Bailey’s mentor, the lovely Mrs. Sharon Osbourne, handpicked her fellow judge and former Pussycat Dolls singer to sing with her prized student.  The two delivered a dynamite performance and was one of the highlights of the X Factor UK finale weekend. 2. Tessanne Chin & Celine Dion: “Love Can Move Mountains” (The Voice: Season Five) In addition to winning The Voice crown, Team Adam’s Tessanne Chin performed with one of her biggest heroes: the iconic Celine Dion! The divas delivered a spellbinding performance that showcased their two terrific voices! 1. Candice Glover & Jennifer Hudson: “Inseparable I have no words to describe this vocal masterpiece! Just watch the video! I guarantee you will be in for a treat! All of the videos that are sprinkled in this article belong to the television shows I mentioned and their networks!
