To call the presidential race contentious and polarizing is to wildly underestimate the current political climate in this country. But take heart!

Decision 2016 has taken a decidedly unexpected and delightful turn.

Thanks to one perfect viral video, we can set aside the scandals, ignore the accusations and even forget about the issues — momentarily — and have time of our lives as Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton stop fighting and start serenading each other.

The post-debate anxieties just melt away as the candidates — with a little help from the send-up specialists at Lucky TV — sing "(I've Had) The Time of My Life," aka the "Dirty Dancing" theme song, in a one-night-only performance.

This hilarious clip is just what this country needs — and just what it asked for on debate night.

While the presidential hopefuls faced off at Washington University on Sunday, viewers couldn't help but notice that they held their mics like karaoke masters in the town hall forum.

We can't wait to see what these two belt out at the next debate, which will take place Oct. 19 at the University of Nevada.
