Sorry, but there arent many artists under 25 that are good enough to duet with Bono.

Oh, sorry. I didn't read carefully.


And sorry........I totally agree with Sicy.

So, I can't answer this question.

Avril Lavigne is a fucking joke. Punk my ass! Try "Ooh looks like the young girls are sick of Britney and her crap, let's see what a necktie-wearing 'rock chick' could maybe do. Ooh.. I know just the songwriters and producers and wardrobe makers to get for her!" Avril doesn't deserve to be on the stage with anyone of Bono's experience, accomplishment or stature.
No shit. She's from Napanee Ontario which if you've ever lived in Toronto or Kingston you know that it is the incest pool capital of the world, she's trash:

Kid Rock with boobs. (not really)

I'd love to see Bono and Madonna together though.

Jewel, my favorite female artist. Man, she is hot. Bono and Jewel singing together and maybe doing a video together would be pure ecstacy for me.

Bono would come off like someone searching desperately for credibility with the younger generation if he dueted with any of the girls mentioned in the first post. It would be a joke.

Yeah maybe Bono could be the skater boy
Or could sing some song about fooling around with girls behind the bleachers


What I'd really like to see is Bono and Sinead do another duet. I liked 'I'm Not Your Baby' but it really didn't showcase either one of their voices, is more of a spoken word bit than really singing.

PJ, Bjork, or any other true artist would be really cool as well

Maybe he could just duet with that really talented girl that won American Idol.

Of the singers listed the only options that don't make me want to vomit are Norah Jones and Alicia Keyes. They both have great voices. I guess I'd give the preference to Norah.

Michelle Branch is a very talented young lady that would sound great with Bono in a duet.
I like the song she does with Carlos Santana too.

I seriously hope Missy Elliot doesn't make you vomit. Lately, she's had more luck coming up with good tunes than U2 has.

I was actually thinking more about Brittney and Christina when I said that. I kind of forgot Missy Elliot's name was on there when I posted. I'm really not familiar enough with her music to have an opinion. I recognize the name and that's about it. I didn't mean to insult her.

Bah, why would Bono want to sing with the little girls like Avril or Vanessa Carlton?

PJ Harvey or Shirley Manson would be great though.

Fiona Apple all the way. I wish it were singing with Bono on 'I'm Not Your Baby'. No disrespect to Sinead, just seems like a Fiona Apple kind of song, with the strange arrangement and don't piss me off attitude (though, Sinead has her fair share of attitude).

For someone older I'd choose Hope Sandoval from Mazzy Star. 'Love Is Blindness' would be a good tune for them. Can't wait for the new Mazzy Star album next year.

What's wrong with Vanessa Carleton?

She has one thing all these young stars lack- she knows to make music, and sing. I think she's very talented and has a beautiful voice and would make a great duet with Bono.

I also put Alicia Keys in the same ball park- she can sing, and write her own music. Another possible duet.

Nelly Furtado would be interesting in a Bono duet to say the least- she's unique, can sing, and writes a lot of her own stuff.

Honourable mention goes to Mandy Moore. Although I do put her in a similar category with a lot of the others (b/c to my knowledge she doesn't write her own stuff, though she CAN sing), I think she has a lot more class and dignity than trash like Brittney and xtina.

It is weird, though, to think of Bono, mega super star in his 40's singing with a young female star who will possibly fade in the next few years. It seems wrong somehow!

I'd love to see Bono duet with PJ Harvey, Norah or any female with a beautiful singing voice. Maybe Tori Amos.
Couldn't agree more. I loathe Avril Lavigne. Punk wannabe and fake anger....hypocrite. Lame lyrics too.

Yes to Norah Jones and Tori Amos. I don't mind Vanessa either.

Interesting question. Bono is such a presence, that it would have to be with someone in a totally different genre than Bono. Otherwise, Bono would overpower the duet. A Jazz singer perhaps. Or Opra. Or Oprah. His with Frank Sinatra was awesome.
