NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 4, 2013) - Critically-acclaimed country music star Kellie Pickler will visit The Ellen DeGeneres Show this Friday, April 5 alongside her Dancing With The Stars dance partner Derek Hough. The two will discuss their quest for taking home the mirror-ball trophy and how they’ve managed to wow the judges since the premiere, earning the highest score of the night Monday during the show's "Prom Night" competition. Fans won't want to miss it, as Pickler will make a very special announcement that can only be heard on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Earlier this week, Hough told People magazine he’s amazed by Pickler’s dance skills saying, “She’s got that ability, which for me is so fun to discover. It’s wonderful.”

Pickler returned his compliment saying, “Having Derek as my partner is an answered prayer. 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!”
