Clay Aiken + DWTS = Perfect Match

DWTS Season 9 Viennese Waltz - Sacrificial Love

Waltzing to 'Sacrificial Love'

Montages Team Clay, DWTS

For years, montage makers have deemed Clay Aiken songs and ABC's popular "Dancing With the Stars" a perfect match, teaming vocals by the North Carolina singer with video clips from the hit show's current and past seasons.

In the opening montage, LovesClaysVoice merged DWTS Season 9 couples and their Viennese Waltz competition with Sacrificial Love, a track from Clay's On My Way Here CD.

DWTS montages using Clay's song stylings span his career from the 2003 Measure of a Man album to On My Way Here in 2008 to a special single release, "Just You." This list represents countless DWTS montages at YouTube, and you are welcome to offer others in your comments:

I'm hoping that now that Clay is with Decca we will see him on DWTS. Some of his songs are perfect for that show.
