Kellie Pickler will appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today, April 5, with her Dancing With The Stars dance partner Derek Hough. The pair will discuss their determination to bring home the Dancing mirror ball trophy and how they’ve been wowing the judges each week, earning the highest score of the night on Monday’s Prom Night-themed competition. Kellie will also make a very special announcement.
Earlier in the week, Derek told People magazine that he’s been amazed by Kellie’s dancing skills. “She’s got that ability, which for me is so fun to discover,” he said. “It’s wonderful.”
“Having Derek as my partner is an answered prayer,” Kellie told the magazine. “Right before I left for L.A., my Grandpa Ken told me he was praying that Derek would be my partner, because he’s his favorite male dancer on the show. Now I think I will tell him to pray that we win!”
