The GRAMMYs are good for two things: Really amazing red carpet looks and bringing together artists who might otherwise never work together. Oh, and people get awards, too. 

The 2016 GRAMMYs air on Monday, Feb. 15, and play host to some of the year's biggest musical collaborations. Tori Kelly will sing with James Bay, Pitbull will bring out Robin Thicke and Travis Barker, and a cast of Meghan Trainor, John Legend, Demi Lovato and Luke Bryan will team for a tribute to Lionel Richie.

As we prep for the big show, take a look back at some of the most epic GRAMMY collaborations from recent years. And don't miss any of our GRAMMY coverage on Monday night!
