Kellie Pickler Returning to ‘Dancing With the Stars’ for Finale Week, Bringing Lady Antebellum Along
Kellie Pickler is headed back to ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ but she’s not going to be donning her dancing shoes or showing off her fabulous form.
Pickler won Season 16 of the dancing competition with talented partner Derek Hough, giving every country fan yet another reason to love the energetic ‘American Idol’ contestant.
But this time, she will kick off Monday’s show (Nov. 25) as a performer, opening Part 1 of the Season 17 finale. She’ll grab the mic and let loose with her new single ‘Little Bit Gypsy’ while letting pro dancers do the dancing.
Pickler won’t be the only one bringing country to ‘DWTS.’ Fan-favorite trio Lady Antebellum will also jet over to the show, ready to perform ‘Compass’ the following evening (Nov. 26). That makes two nights in a row that the show’s viewers will be treated to country music’s top performers — it’s enough excitement for any non-dancer to break out in a jig!
There are four dancers in the mix who are vying for the mirrorball trophy: country comedian Bill Engvall, Jack Osbourne, Amber Riley (who is paired with Hough) and Corbin Bleu.
The first part of the ‘Dancing With the Stars’ finale will air on Nov. 25 at 8PM ET. The second part will air on Nov. 26 at 9PM ET.
