Kellie Pickler danced her way to the top on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars this season, picking up the mirrorball trophy with professional dance partner Derek Hough. The trophy and her finale costume are now on display at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum as part of the Museum’s core exhibit.
Kellie wore the two-piece chiffon, rhinestone-embellished costume for her last dance of the season, the Instant Jive, earning a perfect score, the championship title and the trophy. She and Derek were fan and judge favorites throughout the season.
It was a reality show that first made Kellie a household name. She placed sixth on American Idol in 2006. Her current single, “Someone Somewhere Tonight,” is at radio now. Kellie is currently in the studio, working on an album she plans to release later this year.
