It's a special holiday episode.  Aiken gives a private concert at Salem's local club Dune for Patch (Stephen Nichols) and Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) after the couple offer to volunteer to help Aiken catch a ride to the airport when his car gets stranded.

Aiken's recent release, A Thousand Different Ways, offers fans 10 cover versions of love songs spanning the last three decades, as well as four brand-new songs including "Everything I Have." In 2003, Aiken's debut album, "Measure of a Man," went triple platinum and his follow-up holiday release, "Merry Christmas with Love," was the best-selling holiday album of 2004. He shot to stardom on the hit television series "American Idol" and continues to amaze audiences and his legions of devoted fans with his powerful voice.

In what must be a move to beef up the musical offerings of the show, Aiken's appearance on Days comes on the heels of Smokey Robinson who hits Salem in mid-November.
