Tom and' 'Phonics best Brit duet

Tom Jones and Stereophonics topped the Brit poll

Sir Tom Jones and Stereophonics' cover of Mama Told Me (Not To Come) has been voted the nation's favourite Brit Awards duet.

The legendary crooner and the Welsh rock band's rendition of the song at the ceremony in 2000 beat Jay-Z and Alicia Keys' performance of Empire State Of Mind in 2010 to be named number one Brit pair-up.

Bajan beauty Rihanna's duet with London rockers Klaxons in 2008 to perform her hit Umbrella came third in the survey of more than 3,000 people carried out by award sponsors MasterCard.

Grammy champion Adele was crowned the star most people would like to duet with, and the Rolling In The Deep singer beat Take That's performance of Back For Good in 1995 to be voted best ever Brits performance for her rendition of Someone Like You at last year's ceremony.

Fans can win the chance to duet with Brit Critic's Choice 2011 winner Jessie J as part of MasterCard's Priceless Duets competition by registering at www.somethingforthefans.co.uk.
