Kellie Pickler Has a Scary Moment on 'Ellen' (VIDEO)

by Harley W. Lond, posted Feb 16th 2010 8:13PM
Kellie Pickler knows that driving a tad bit faster than the speed limit is OK but her recent bout with the law has made her a bit paranoid.

On 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (weekdays, syndicated), Pickler told DeGeneres about the ticket she got for driving 45 in a 30 MPH zone, then talked about how she hates people who drive right at the speed limit, "especially on the interstate. Oh my God, get out of my way. That brings out the inner demon in me. I'm not possessed or nothin.' The speed limit's too slow."

Getting back to her ticket, she told DeGeneres that "I had to do a sobriety test ... but I passed ..." Then as if she were possessed, Pickler jumped out of her seat as if someone were sneaking up on her. That cop, maybe? Anyhow, her surprise move got the best laugh of the whole interview.

Watch the video after the jump.

What was Frankie Avalon doing on American Idol?

Frankie Avalon todayI don't know about you, but I was surprised -- floored! -- to see Frankie Avalon on American Idol the other night. Granted, they always have to stretch to fill the one-hour results show, which could truly be done in five minutes, but how odd was it for Flo Rida, Kellie Pickler and Frankie Avalon to be on the same show?

And Frankie kicked off the show! The Idol producers dug up a 1959 video of Frankie Avalon singing "Venus," which of course, lead to the real Frankie appearing on stage to finish the number. With the exception of the dream sequence in Grease (1978) singing "Beauty School Dropout," has Frankie done anything relevant to warrant such major exposure?

American Idol: Results Show (1 of 8 goes home)

Alright, results show: I haven't watched the episode yet; it just started and I have it on pause so I can make my predictions. I think the bottom three is going to be Anoop, Lil Rounds and Scott. Lil Rounds will go home. Anything else would officially shock me, but I love being shocked, so here's hoping.

We're still on the whole "year of their birth" thing, so Ryan makes a big deal about how old Simon is by showing a clip of Frankie Avalon singing in the year he was born. Then the stage opens, and Frankie Avalon himself comes out and sings. Simon looks completely surprised and amused. It's actually a really cute moment, and Frankie sounds great.

Enough of that, though; I want to find out who's going home! So let's get on with it. We've got 50 minutes of filler left before we get our answers.

American Idol welcomes back Kellie Pickler

by Jason Hughes, posted Mar 18th 2008 10:24AM
Kellie PicklerShe didn't win American Idol Season 5, in fact she came in sixth place, but Kellie Pickler has still gone on to become one of the bigger success stories from the franchise. This week, the blonde bombshell who was made famous by her ditzy comments and naivete about ... well, everything, returns to the stage that made her a star. Idol continues it's trend of inviting contestants past onto the results show each week to perform, self-promote and serve as inspiration for the current Idol wannabes.

Rather than continue the tour of Idol runner-ups begun with Blake Lewis and Katharine McPhee the past two weeks, the show is sticking with Season 5 and going with Kellie Pickler. The move makes sense, as Pickler has had more commercial success than Season 4 runner-up Bo Bice. In fact, I think Season 5 has more success stories in the music biz than any other season, so maybe they'll just stay here for a bit and check in with Elliott Yamin, Bucky Covington and Chris Daughtry while they're at it.

Kellie Pickler has advice for new Idol contestants - VIDEO

by Jason Hughes, posted Feb 14th 2008 3:07PM
Kelly Pickler on American Idol Season 6Kellie Pickler gained infamy for her dim-witted charm on Season 5 of American Idol, and has since gone on to some success in the country music field. She had a memorable return to the show that launched her career last year, facing off against Ryan Seacrest who wondered if she'd picked up a new pair of ... oh, anything with the money she'd made since leaving the show.

Now, she's offering sage advice through People magazine, to this year's crop of Idol-wannabes. I'm sorry, but there's plenty of people I'd gladly take advice from, but "Pick Pickler" is hardly one of them. I still can't decide if the bumpkin idiocy is a farce, in which case she's brilliant, or real. If it's real then ... wow!

American Idol: Live Results Show #2

by Liz Finn-Arnold, posted Mar 1st 2007 11:15PM
AJ Tabaldo(S06E16) Ryan sums up the last two nights by saying "The girls ripped it up and the boys threw it down," and tells us that once again they received almost 32 million total votes.

Let's just skip all the other stuff and get to it. AJ TABALDO is going home! I'm shocked. I really didn't see that coming. I would place AJ above Phil, Brandon, Jared, and definitely Sanjaya. He gave a good performance Tuesday night and received praise from all of the judges. He has a great personality to match a great voice. Yet, AJ's journey ends tonight...and Sanjaya (adorable, yet flawed) lives to sing another song.

Oh yeah, ALAINA, NICK, and LESLIE are also going home, but I'm not surprised at all. I pretty much expected that. Did I mention that I'm still in shock over AJ getting the boot?

Are American Idol losers the real winners?

by Liz Finn-Arnold, posted Jan 16th 2007 12:23PM
Kellie Pickler and ConstantineHoward Cohen of MiamiHerald.com seems to think so. In today's post he points out that several AI finalists didn't take top prize, but the show still helped catapult them to success. Jennifer Hudson's Golden Globe win last night certainly puts her on the top of the list for "Most Successful Ex-American Idol Losers," well, at least for the time being.

American Idol: America gets it right

by Anna Johns, posted Apr 27th 2006 12:32AM
american idol logoAh, man. I thought I'd be really glad to see Kellie go, but she's so sweet and innocent that I felt really bad for her when she got voted off. But, America doesn't need any more dumb blonde singers (although, Britney doesn't seem to be doing much lately, so maybe there is an opening). Hopefully Kellie gets some professional help with her voice, because she was the amateur of amateurs in this bunch of six.

When Ryan split the final six into three groups of two, we learned that Chris and Katherine received the most votes this week. I wouldn't be surprised if those two battled it out in the final two. I think they're evenly matched-- with personality and vocal ability. Next week, Taylor, Elliott, and Paris are all in extreme danger of being sent home.

On a side note, wasn't Andrea Bocelli spectacular? The man's voice is like butter.

American Idol: Modern Hits...or Misses?

by Lacy Hall, posted Mar 29th 2006 11:06AM

For lack of a better word or description, last night's show was weird and anti-climatic. At first, I was really excited about the contestants doing modern hits from the last 6 years, but then...nothing happened. I kept waiting for that one really great performance that would put the show into overdrive, but it never came.

First off, the show was cut down to a hour last night since there are only 10 contestants left. This made everything feel very rushed. It felt less like a national hit show and more like a filler before House came on. Secondly, all the judges were in agreement last night, and yet they were still fighting. Always weird. Thirdly, lack of time translated into lack of Seacrest zingers. Seacrest zingers are always the cheesiest of zings, and yet, I miss them when they're gone. It's like getting a dollar every year in your birthday card from Grandma. A dollar doesn't get you much (heck, it doesn't get you anything), but that first year when it's not in there...it burns. Finally, I think Kevin might have been eliminated prematurely. I'm convinced that if given the chance, he would have performed Britney Spears' "Toxic" and it would have been the best thing to happen to American Idol since Bobby sung the praises of the Copacabana.

Kellie Pickler in local singing competition

by Anna Johns, posted Mar 16th 2006 9:29AM
kellie pickler gimme the mikeIt must be the crowd, and not the cameras or the lights, that is making Kellie Pickler nervous. After all, she has been on a televised singing competition before. And it wasn't too long ago. TMZ has a short video clip of Kellie competing in a 2005 Charlotte, North Carolina singing competition called Gimme the Mike (we have a version here in Portland, too). Kellie made it into the top five but did not win. The clip over at TMZ shows Kellie singing Independence Day and Stand by Your Man. I think she's yelling the songs, but, then again, I think she yells every song. There are also photos from her high school yearbook where she's totally into cheerleading and she still has naturally blond hair.
