This wild election season feels like a reality show — and now one YouTube video is taking it a step further, making Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s tense second presidential debate look more like a performance on The Voice.

Thanks to the magic of editing, that awkward moment when the candidates stepped onto the stage seems like the rehearsed beginning to a duet for the ages. As Trump and Clinton face a hollering audience, “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” — a.k.a. the Dirty Dancing classic you’ve heard a million times in Sandals Resorts commercials — starts playing, and Trump brings the mic to his mouth. But instead of an insult hurling out, all we hear is a sweet, sweet melody.

“Now I’ve had the time of my life,” he sings, looking over at a smiling Clinton. “And I’ve never felt this way before.”

While that may have looked like an eyeroll in the explosive debate, this video might actually have you thinking the two like each other and have mad karaoke skills. Check out the blissful duet in the video above.
