Country Fans Can Make Kellie Pickler A ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Champion
Early on I predicted that Kelly Pickler would be in the finals of Dancing With The Stars. I also predicted that Zendaya would join her. I had no idea at the time that Aly Raisman and Jacoby Jones would also be joining her. This is the first time in Dancing With The Stars history that four have made it into final episode.
Monday night’s freestyle performance by Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough left judge Carrie Ann Inaba in tears. It left my wife in tears. I’m sticking my neck out by saying Picker’s dance could have been the best performance on Dancing With The Stars. Ever.
Kellie Pickler has been nothing but amazing since she began her journey on the show. She has a modest dancing background, one that would lead you to believe she was just going to be average. As the season progressed, and especially Monday night, it was very apparent that Pickler is as good as any professional dancer I have seen. All season long, she has mastered each move and each dance and has made it look effortless and easy.
Tonight, only one of the four will win the coveted mirror ball trophy. The scoring is close. Disney star Zendaya (who by the way is only 16) leads by only a couple of points. Aly Raisman, the Olympic gymnast is in third with Baltimore Ravens’ wide receiver Jacoby Jones in fourth place.
Country music could very well have it’s first Dancing With The Stars champion. I believe that Kellie Pickler is not only good enough to win, but she deserves to win. I hope that country music fans have come through with their votes to crown her Tuesday night’s champion.
Tuesday’s finale on ABC begins at 8:00pm central and will include one last instant dance for each of the stars. The scores will be added to the public vote to determine the winner.
