ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" is not exactly known for its musical talent (we'll leave that to the folks over at "American Idol"), but come results night, big time musical guests do take the stage. Here's a look back at some of the top musical guests ever to serenade the "DWTS" dancers.

Selena Gomez- The "Wizards of Waverly Place" stars may have been responsible for millions of tweens staying up past their bed time when she appeared on "DWTS" in season 9 and in season 12.

Ballas Hough- Yes, these "Dancing With the Stars" pro dancers have a side gig. In 2009, Derek Hough and Mark Ballas performed their rock song "Move" on the "DWTS" stage. It wasn't enough to "move" their fans, though: a recording contract seemingly fizzled.

Taylor Swift- 2009 was a very good year for Taylor Swift (well, except for that Kanye diss). The pop country star sang her songs "Jump Then Fall" and "Love Story" on "DWTS" season 9.

Heart- The 1970s rockers rocked the "DWTS" stage back in Season 11. As for their song selection (they sang their hit song "Barracuda"), singer Ann Wilson lamented that Sarah Palin wasn't in the audience cheering on daughter Bristol, because Heart would have dedicated the song to her.

Jonas Brothers- The Disney stars showed up on "DWTS" back in 2008, causing a frenzy among their tween fans when they sang the old' 80s A-Ha song, "Take On Me."

Santana- The legendary Carlos Santana collaborated alongside former "American Idol" contestant Chris Daughtry....on a Def Leppard song? Yep, this dynamic duo performed the Def Lep song "Photograph" during Season 11.

Miley Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus- Smack in the middle of her "Hannah Montana" heyday, Miley and dad Billy Ray performed their duet "Ready Set Don't Go" back in Season 5.

The Bee Gees- These music of these 1970s superstars owned the disco dance floor back in the day and what better song than their classic "You Should Be Dancing" to be featured on "DWTS"? This was one very welcome blast from the past when they appeared on the show in 2009.

Brad Paisley - The country cutie sang "Ticks" and "Let the Good Time Roll" during the seventh season of "DWTS" bringing some much-needed country flair to the "DWTS" stage.

Lady Gaga- Season 10 contestant Kate Gosselin may have bombed with her paso doble to Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi," but the "DWTS" producers scored big when they signed Gaga to perform "Just Dance "and "Love Game" on the show in 2009.
