Stevie Wonder and Jonas Brothers "Burnin' Up" and "Superstition" (2009)

In retrospect, this might not seem like that odd a team-up, now that Nick is grooving his way to solo fame with steamy R&B-flavored hits and Joe has assembled his own funk-pop band, DNCE. But at the time, the Jonases were just cute teenyboppers sharing the stage with a bona fide legend. Game as ever for whatever the Grammys asked of him, Stevie sounded right at home on the Jonases' "Burnin' Up," electronically modulating his voice for the intro. But the brothers weren't quite ready for Stevie's "Superstition." After the first verse, Nick cockily asks "Mind if I take this, Stevie?" "Come on, Nick," the elder graciously replies. And then the poor kid flubs the lyrics. Talk about bad luck.
