Hands down it's Bing Bowie, maybe one of the last real classic moments of the Holiday season. Two amazing pitch perfect vocals blend two classic songs and the result is amazing, memorable & possibly one of the oddest yet best Christmas duets ever to be filmed.

I always get the creeps when I see this video, the two do not work together at all and they just feel off. My vote was fully for White Christmas.

Sherluck - Where did you come up with that logic? A great thing about music is being able to blend sounds in any way, shape or form.

sherluck - of course it should be eligible. it's a wonderful counterpoint. It reminds me, oddly, of Quintet from West Side Story, with the Jets and Sharks singing their version of Tonight, and Maria & Tony, and Anita singing theirs.

I do not like the duet. They do not harmonize very well and when they sing the separate songs, you can hardly hear Bing. Anyway, it is two songs so should not be eligible.

Bing and Bowie-such an unlikely duet, but the combination was amazing!

White Christmas has alway been a favorite carol of mine, but the duo of Bing Crosby and David Bowie singing Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth, I think has a far stronger message and their harmonies are perfect, so I think either way Bing wins, and in this case Bowie should win, too. Even thou Bing looks confused by Bowie, it was a special moment.

Bing Crosby/David Bowie's Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy will always be one of my very favorite Christmas songs - I hope it wins.

I thought the Bing Crosby/David Bowie was going to end up being a pornography film with the way it all started but turned out to be just ok. White Christmas was beautiful and I can imagine a simpler place in time watching it.

Oh, this is a tough one! I remember watching the last Bing Crosby Christmas Special when it was first broadcast. But White Christmas is THE ultimate Christmas song....
