We never saw these collaborations coming, but we’ll watch them again and again. The Grammys have a long history of bringing together artists that wouldn’t normally share a cab, let alone a stage. Over the years, plenty of odd couples have delivered performances on Music’s Biggest Night that were greater than the sums of their seemingly ill-fitting parts. What follows are 10 of our favorites from the last 15 years. We never saw these collaborations coming, but we’ll watch them again and again. Imagine Dragons and...
