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?

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 10th 2009 2:04PM
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

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' Stars: Where Are They Now?

by AOL TV Staff, posted Jan 11th 2008 6:00AM
Call it what you will -- the downfall of pop music or its savior -- there's no denying that 'American Idol' is a fickle god-maker.

Some winners have found great success (hello, Kelly!), some have been dumped by their labels (so sorry, Ruben and Taylor), while some also-rans have gone on to bigger and better things.

We check in on 30 'AI' alums and fill you in on which ones are in trouble with the law, which are still giving it their best shot ... and which have fallen off the radar.

Simon says Idol finalists suffer from 'Chris Daughtry-itis'

by Liz Finn-Arnold, posted Apr 16th 2007 3:38PM

Chris DaughtryWhat exactly is 'Chris Daughtry-itis?' Does it involve a fever and a rash? Does it cause baldness? And most importantly, is it curable?

Simon Cowell complained in this week's Entertainment Weekly that the current batch of finalists just don't want to win badly enough. And this laid-back attitude is effecting their "A Game," or creating a lack thereof.

Simon said, "I think that we suffer from Jennifer Hudson- and Chris Daughtry-itis, which is people who didn't win getting great careers and now a lot of the contestants believing it absolutely doesn't matter."

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.
