Let's face it: musical duets are just a mess. Two people trying to sing together is like two dogs trying to hump the same leg. It's just awkward and uncomfortable, and more often than not, it sounds like a hot mess. There's always one person who tries to out-sing the other or one person who can't keep up with the harmony, or both. And don't even get me started on the eye contact. Or lack thereof. It's just all-around uncomfortable and unnecessary. If you want to hear two people sing, go see a concert. If you want to see two people making a complete mess of themselves, go watch a musical duet.

If there's one thing that can be said about the world of music, it's that there are no bounds to what can be created. From classic rock to country, there seems to be a little bit of everything for everyone. But sometimes, musicians take things a step too far and create unlikely musical duets that sound just as bonkers as you'd expect. Check out some of our favorite strange pairings below!

HUEY LEWIS & GWYNETH PALTROW CRACKED.com So Lewis plays Paltrow's dad in Duets. So far, so good. (We wouldn't put it past Hollywood to make them lovers.) He calls her onstage to sing and they warble cringey Smokey Robinson love song Cruisin'. This is not a one-night stand? Knock it off, you two!
