ET Remembers the Most Memorable GRAMMY Collaborations
By Raphael Chestang
The GRAMMY Awards always feature some of the best musical performances of the year, so ET's Cameron Mathison joined producer-songwriter Philip Lawrence in our brand new Absolut Lime Green Room to talk about the most memorable GRAMMY collaborations.
Absolut partnered with the GRAMMYs this year to celebrate the launch of their newest flavor, Absolut Lime. And just like the ingredients to the perfect cocktail, you need just the right mix for a great GRAMMY collaboration.
We know that Maren Morris, who is nominated for Best New Artist, will be performing with GRAMMY winner Alicia Keys, and Lawrence let us know what it's like to be in the studio with another one of this year's performers, Bruno Mars.
"We've been working together like 10 years now," Lawrence said. "He trusts that I won't let him say a silly line, because there's a lot of corny stuff that comes up when you're writing a song."
Some of the biggest collaborations to hit the GRAMMY stage in the past were Lady Gaga and Elton John in 2010, Usher and James Brown in 2005, Beyonce and Tina Turner in 2008, Kendrick Lamar and Imagine Dragons in 2014.
Absolut Lime will also be hosting a winners' lounge backstage at the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards, which will air live on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on CBS.
