McKenzie Carey And Her Dad Might Be Best Pageant Duo

From Buzzfeed, we get news of McKenzie "Kenzie" Carey, 12, who competes in pageants.

which has gone viral.  

Nice enough. But she needs help from her dad because she had mitochondrial disease, which makes it hard for her to move around.

So dad serves as a bit of an interpretor during their dance routine to the Miley Cyrus song "The Climb."

According to the Blaze, Kenzie had wanted to have a routine to perform like other girls in pageants, so she enlisted her father's help.

I love the contrast. McKenzie in her pretty, frilly pink and purple and blue dress, and dad, this burly dude with a mustache, red baseball cap, jeans and tired t-shirt concealing maybe a bit of a beer belly.

The act works beautifully, as anyone can see in their video, which has gone viral this month.

Probably what makes this so compelling is the look of happiness and security on Kenzie's face as she dances with her father, and the proud I-would-do-anything-for-you expression on dad's face as he dances with his daughter.

Kenzie and her dad are doing this in part to raise funds for expensive treatment for her illness.

Still, the performance makes Kenzie's dad a strong contender for Father Of The Year.

Watch and find out for yourself, but warning: Kleenex alert:
