Clay Aiken – Dirty Dancing

Do you remember the movie, Dirty Dancing?  Released in 1987, the romantic film starred Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze.

Dirty Dancing was a huge box office hit. It earned over $214 million worldwide. It was also the first film to sell more than a million copies on home video.

Patrick Swayze, the romantic dancer in the movie had his first professional appearance as a dancer for Disney on Parade. Next, he was seen as a replacement playing the role of Danny Zuko in the long-running production of Grease on Broadway.

Swayze, chosen by People magazine as the “Sexiest Man Alive” in 1991 was most famous for his role in Dirty Dancing and the 1990 film, Ghost.

Jennifer Grey is the daughter of stage and Academy Award-winning actor Joel Grey.  As a young actor she was best know for her role as Ferris Bueller’s sister and her role of Baby in Dirty Dancing.

In the early 1990s, Grey underwent a rhinoplasty procedure that many people thought was not helpful to her looks and they thought it was one of the reasons she was not asked to star in many more projects.

After two very serious accidents, Grey became the winner of season 11 of Dancing With The Stars in 2010.

WAIT…What does this have to do with Clay Aiken?  Well, if you know the talented SueReu and the way she is able to put together wonderful videos, you won’t be surprised that she put together a wonderful new video to Clay’s performance of Unchained Melody.  Using the beautiful arrangement by Ben Cohn, Clay’s voice is the backdrop for Jennifer Grey’s dancing in both Dirty Dancing and Dancing With The Stars.
