    The Billboard Music awards tend to get overlooked, in comparison to the Grammys. I'm sure there are many music fans out there who like it better. I say, that it all depends on who is performing. Some years are better than others. One topic I think we forget to mention is the duets and collaborations. It's not everyday that you get to see some hard hitting music makers sharing the same stage with one another. Insider wrote an article, breaking down their top 14 duets. I thought I'd share it.

    Top 14 Duets/Collabs:

    Madonna and Stevie Wonder paid tribute to Prince after his death in 2016

    Demi Lovato and Christina Aguilera debuted their song "Fall In Line" in 2018

    Shawn Mendes and Khalid took a stand against gun violence at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards

    Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton sang a sweet duet at the 2016 awards

    Florida Georgia Line performed alongside John Legend in 2017

    Stevie Wonder and Alicia Keys teamed up in 2012 to perform some of his classic hits

    Camila Cabello and Pharrell Williams brought "Sangria Wine" to the show in 2018.

    Alicia Keys, Angie Stone, and Eve performed together in 2001

    Iggy Azalea, Charli XCX, and Ariana Grande performed a mashup of their songs in 2014

    Kelly Clarkson, Salt-N-Pepa, and En Vogue closed out the 2018 show with an epic performance

    In 2011, Rihanna surprised fans with a remix of "S&M" featuring Britney Spears

    Macklemore and Kesha teamed up to perform their song "Good Old Days" in 2018

    Jordin Sparks and John Legend paid tribute to late singer Whitney Houston in 2012

    Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj did a mash-up featuring two huge hits in 2011

    I'd have to say that the Stevie Wonder/Alicia Keys one was good. I didn't know that Stevie Wonder had done more than one collaboration at the Billboard Music Awards. I definitely would like to see a little more variety in the coming years, but most if not all performers listed above are big names. What should be number one do you think? Is it missing a particular collaboration?

    I'll say I'm not a huge fan of that particular awards show. I guess because It's mostly pop oriented. I like pop, don't get me wrong. I just don't get today's pop. Just doesn't do anything for me. Prolly I will say that Ed Sheeran winning Top Touring Artist was nice to see. I know it wasn't Top Artist, but I'm glad to see that he got some recognition at least. What awards do you think made the show more watchable?

    True, it's not my favorite, but it is pretty entertaining at times. Um, I would actually have to say that Luke Combs winning the Top Country Artist, and Top Male Country Artist, was something that made it worth watching for me at least.
