The Top 10 Most Epic Grammy Awards Duets
There's nothing like a perfect pair!

Each year, the Grammy Awards puts together some of the most memorable moments in music with unforgettable collaborations.

Music's biggest night is the ideal place for artists both old and new to come together and make history live on stage.

If there was an award for the most theatrical GRAMMYs debut, Lady Gaga would be a definite contender. In 2010, Mother Monster took viewers through the "Fame Factory" and emerged from the ashes seated at a double-sided piano with Elton John. The two served up an unforgettable duet of Gaga’s “Speechless” and John’s “Your Song.”

2. Prince and Beyonce

Years before Queen Bey claimed the throne, she bowed down to the one and only Prince. In 2004, Beyonce shared the stage with the Purple One for a fierce medley of “Purple Rain” and “Crazy in Love.”

‘The Good Doctor’ Features Actor With Autism for an Insightful Episode That Highlights the Need for More Inclusion

‘The Good Doctor’ Features Actor With Autism for an Insightful Episode That Highlights the Need for More Inclusion
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “The Good Doctor” episode, “22 Steps.”]

The Good Doctor” is a way for viewers who have never met a person with autism to get to know more about the differences in neurology and behaviors that may accompany the disorder. For the show’s central character Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore), a surgical resident with autism and savant syndrome, he hasn’t met anyone with autism either, at least not until Monday’s episode.

When a young man named Liam (Coby Bird) is wheeled in on a gurney, Shaun immediately understands why the boy is struggling with the nurses. Far from needing to be restrained, it turns out he has autism and doesn’t like to be touched. Shaun proves to be instrumental in understanding Liam’s needs and relaying them to the hospital staff. IndieWire spoke with series creator David Shore to get his take on the insightful episode.

Lady Gaga and Metallica to Duet at Grammys

Lady Gaga and Metallica to Duet at Grammys
Lady Gaga and Metallica will share the stage at the 59th Grammy Awards, Rolling Stone reports.

Whispers of the forthcoming collaboration on Music’s Biggest Night first began making the rounds late on Monday, when a Gaga fan account tweeted a snippet of an alleged promo clip for the show, which announced: “Lady Gaga duets with Metallica.” The clip also featured shots of previously announced performers Little Big Town and Katy Perry.

Legends of the Fall: 12 TV Actors We’re Happy to See Back on the Small Screen

Legends of the Fall: 12 TV Actors We’re Happy to See Back on the Small Screen
Pamela Adlon, “Better Things

Compared to Adlon’s “Louie” character, the actress’ new role as single mom Sam is just as blunt and borderline provocative but far less intimidating. In fact, she’s kind of adorable in a painfully put-upon but unapologetic way. The semi-autobiographical story has us cringing alongside every embarrassing audition, parental freakout and unfair setback, and yet, Sam’s integrity and backhanded optimism is apparent in that she doesn’t give up, but instead copes (with vodka, but copes nonetheless). Sam is the promise of “Louie’s” Pamela fully realized.

8 Musicals We'd Love to See Lady Gaga Star In!

8 Musicals We'd Love to See Lady Gaga Star In!
Now that Lady Gaga is coming to American Horror Story, it's safe to say her comeback (should we call it a comeback?) is fully underway.

Seeing Lady Gaga kill it at the Oscars singing Julie Andrews' classic standards (after months of hard work and preparation), coupled with the fact that she's doing more acting, has us dreaming of Broadway being the next step in Mother Monster's career. So we started thinking of musicals she'd be great for.

37 Movies That Share Their Name With A Michael Jackson Song

You wouldn't know it from the film's lack of marketing, but a new movie called Black or White debuted in theaters today. Despite the presence of stars Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer, I've never seen a trailer or TV spot for the movie, which BoxOfficeMojo says is in over 1,000 theaters right now. (Apparently the film played at last year's Toronto International Film Festival and didn't receive very favorable reviews.) I don't ever plan on watching this film, but that doesn't mean that I can't come up with a tangentially-related article about it. Black or White got me thinking: what other movies share a title with a Michael Jackson song?

As far as ground rules go, there's really only one major one: the title of the movie and the song have to match exactly - if a word is possessive, I'm not making an exception. Exact matches or Gtfo. I'll embed

Ranked: How superhero stars fared after giving up the cape

Ranked: How superhero stars fared after giving up the cape
Donning the cape and tights to play a big screen superhero was often seen as career suicide for actors. This idea is mined to brilliant effect in Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman, with a former comic book star looking to relaunch his career with an ambitious Broadway play.

Adding extra spice to Birdman is the casting of Michael Keaton, himself a former Batman whose post-tights career has been somewhat hit and miss. This film, however, is a stunning reminder of just how good an actor Keaton is and proof that careers don't end when on-screen superpowers fade away.

Digital Spy takes a look at 20 ex-superhero stars to see how they fared after leaving an iconic comic book role behind.

The suave American actor looked set for big things in the '90s thanks to impressive roles in Dead Calm and Tombstone, but his time in the purple Phantom

Yoink. That's the sound of Jacquie Lee stealing the crown on this season of The Voice. That's one possible scenario, at least.

The other? Tessanne Chin wins it all.

Rolling Stone's Complete Coverage of 'The Voice'

The only thing that's probably a lock at this point: The winner won't be Will Champlin. (Sorry, buddy.) Double-header coach Adam Levine had to pick someone to throw under the bus, and he went all in on Chin.

Happy 27th Birthday, Lady Gaga! Let's Rank Her 27 Best Songs.

Lady Gaga turns 27 today. Ugh, Madonna invented that in 1985.

Just kidding. Since I had such a good time toasting Mariah Carey's extensive canon yesterday, I thought we'd take a chance on another birthday girl today. Bow down to Stefani Germanotta, a.k.a. Lady Gaga, who will no doubt kick off another spectacular year of Lgbt activism and phenomenal pop culture sorcery beginning today. I hope she's wearing only the sleekest wig, blazer, and leotard set as I write this.

Shall we rank the superstar's 27 greatest songs, kids? I apologize for what I've left off, but I'll leave "marrying the night" to you Scotus-approaching domestic types. 

27. "Boys, Boys, Boys"

Boys in cars, boys in bars! The Dr. Seuss version of boy-craziness.

26. "Christmas Tree"

Aggressive, Christmas-themed innuendo. She's the Star On Top, everyone.

25. "Speechless"

Elton John by way of Billy Joel by way of drunken teenage poetry. 

24. "Hair"

Pure madness

Morning Meme: Frank Ocean Steps Out, Matthew Mitcham Gets Artsy, and P!nk Announces Her New Album

Frank Ocean, of the hip-hop collective Odd Future, came out and said that his first love was a man, in a moving post to his Tumblr. Global Grind is saying that he's come out as bisexual. Rumors started spreading after a radio station noticed lyrics in his debut solo album used male pronouns, and Ocean verified it in a post of the CD liner, which is where he intended to come out. Adding a young, emerging hip-hop star to the constellation of out celebrities is a great thing, and we salute his bravery.

Cern is confirming they have a 4.9 sigma result of a new particle being discovered that strongly resembles the elusive Higgs boson, which would complete the standard model in physics. It may take the better part of the year before they're willing to confirm it is the actual Higgs boson.

Love Me Tender

Love Me Tender
Lykke Li first materialized on the U.S. indie scene at the age of 21 -- a young Swedish girl with a crystalline, otherworldly voice -- armed with an understanding of how synth sounds could dally with tender love songs, a fine line she's careful not to overstep. After a brief bit of exposure with 2007's "Little Bit," Li officially "arrived" the next year with her debut album Youth Novels, and a career-making single, "I'm Good, I'm Gone."

Three years later, she's penned a song for the "Twilight: New Moon" soundtrack, collaborated with fellow Nordics Royksopp and released her sophomore album, Wounded Rhymes, to critical acclaim, for which she's currently on tour.

Listening to Li's HuffPost Playlist, it's clear where her own music gets its heart from -- those who cornered the market on nostalgic love songs, and are unafraid to be a little sappy. Below, you'll find Li's selection of

City Slickers Director Ron Underwood to Film Skiing Comedy Woodchucks

City Slickers director Ron Underwood is set to direct a new ski comedy called Woodchucks.

The script was written by Len Britton (Precious Find) and Rick Parks (Ever After).

Len Britton is a former professional ski coach. He was, even more, 2009 running for U.S. Senate as a Republican and told that understood problems Vermonters face. Britton is the father of five children and I believe he is the right person to pen such a scenario. Despite his only sci-fi movie wasn’t well-liked.

On the other side, Parks’ co-written Cinderella is far a better movie so no needs to doubt him. Rick Park is a Vermonter too and is partnered with Britton in the Vermont-based media company Britton-Broyles Media.

The dramatic comedy follows a Vermont ski team as it tries to prevent a corporate resort developer from wrecking their local mountain. Principal photography is set to begin at the

American Idol Recap: Those 24 About to Rock, We Salute You!

American Idol Recap: Those 24 About to Rock, We Salute You!
What Thursday night’s American Idol telecast lacked in suspense, it more than made up for in terms of surprise.

Ryan Seacrest pulled a Gwyneth Paltrow and went all Country Strong on us, but not before getting lifted like a set of Jersey Shore dumbbells by male and female contestants alike. Rachel Zevita opened up a commanding lead in the Season 10 Millinery Race. A pissed-off rocker chick took home the prize for Most Endearing Contestant (I kid you not!) by candidly flipping off the Idol cameras. And Sam Cooke’s classic civil-rights anthem “A Change Is Gonna Come” underwent radical
