Yesterday we learned the identities of the 11 stars competing on new season of Dancing With The Stars, and among those, was American Idol season five alum, Kellie Pickler. While it may not have come as a surprise that Pickler joined the cast, what was surprising was to learn that she has been dreaming of being on the show for some time now.
Apparently, dreams do come true – at least for Kellie Pickler, that is. The former Idol contestant and Country music crooner revealed recently that she has been dreaming of being on Dancing With The Stars for a long time now. And what’s even better for her? Pickler was lucky enough to be paired up with her favorite pro, Derek Hough.
So, how did she get so lucky this season to get a shot on the show? Kellie spoke to OK! Magazine, and explained that this was not the first time she has been asked, claiming: “I’ve been asked to be a contestant for the past few seasons. This year was just the first time I was able to compete while still touring and recording.”
The 26-year-old crooner actually expressed interest in the show about five years ago as well, and after all that time, she will finally get the chance to live her dream, and show off her moves! Pickler is beyond excited to get the chance to dance, and she gushed about the talented cast that she will competing against.
