Kellie Pickler + Lady Antebellum to Perform on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ Finale
Kellie Pickler is taking off her dancing shoes for her return to ‘Dancing with the Stars’ Monday night (Nov. 25). The reigning champion of the show will be taking the stage to perform her new single, ‘Little Bit Gypsy.’
Pickler won Season 16 of ‘DWTS’ with her partner, Derek Hough. She will be opening tonight’s show, which is part one of the Season 17 finale.
Part two, airing Tuesday (Nov. 26), will also feature an opening performance by one of country music’s stage favorites — Lady Antebellum, playing their hit single ‘Compass.’
Four dancers are left in the competition for the coveted mirrorball trophy — comedian Bill Engvall, Jack Osbourne, Corbin Bleu and Hough’s current dance partner, Amber Riley.
At an earlier episode of ‘DWTS,’ Pickler talked to On the Red Carpet, saying that she’ll be rooting for her former dance partner: “Of course I’m going to pull for my D-rock!”
She and Hough also joked in the interview about passing the mirrorball trophy on to the next winner as if it were the Olympic torch.
“Do I get to hand it or does Tom [Bergeron] get to hand the trophy?” She says. “I think I should tackle Tom and I’m going to hand the trophy out.”
Part one of the season finale will air tonight (Nov. 24) at 8PM ET, with part two the next night at 9PM ET.
