Kellie Pickler Doesn’t Have High Hopes for Her ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Adventure – Picker, whose Grandpa Ken convinced her to sign onto the show, confesses to the Boot, “People are expecting me to be good, and I don’t know if I am or not.” However, if her ‘DWTS’ promo photo is any indication, she looks ready to dazzle, appearing fit and beautiful next to her partner, Derek Hough. “I hope people don’t have too high of expectations for me, because I’m not a dancer,” Pickler says, further explaining her trepidations. “Derek is going to do the best that he can teaching me as much as he can in that short time period.

Kellie and Derek Meet for the First Time

Kellie and Derek Post Dance Interview

‘I once got booed in Nebraska for saying I was a vegetarian …it’s a big meat area’ – What was the last text you got? My husband just texted to tell me that he’d landed in Vancouver. He’s an ice hockey player and they’d just had a game in Dallas. He travels as much as I do and our paths rarely cross, which is not cool. When was the last time you cried? I seem to cry a lot on planes when I watch movies. I think it has something to do with the pressure and the funky air. I watched the latest Twilight and I’ll admit that I got a little misty. – Read more at The Sun UK

Phillip Phillips Interview- American Idol Top 10

First look at new ‘Voice’ judges Shakira and Usher – Anyway, the show opens with all four judges playing a pickup version of The Beatles “Come Together.” They play as though they’d been together for years — and they judge together with the same ease. Unlike “American Idol” — which is getting so long-in-the- tooth they may need to call in an orthodontist, or “America’s Got Talent,” where the judge in-fighting gag is more used up than the Kardashian sisters — and especially the forgettable format of “The X Factor” — “The Voice” judges aren’t there to focus on themselves. Well, maybe they are, but they aren’t so blatant about it. – Read more at The New York Post

‘The Voice’ Season 4: Carson Daly talks new coaches Usher and Shakira – “It just took a minute,” Daly says during lunch on the NBC Universal lot. “Blake didn’t understand a thing Shakira said for the first two hours. He called Usher, Crusher. [But] they all just get along it’s fun to watch. Within two hours, [the producers] just looked at each other like, ‘Awesome, everybody’s doing what “The Voice” does.'” This season’s format will stay close to Season 3, which Daly describes as “perfection” and will include the return of the coaches’ steal. “All the coach were more incentivized to look at each others teams because if someone slipped through the cracks they could steal them,” he notes. – Read more at Zap2it

‘Amazing Race’: Dave and Connor on Their ‘Heartbreaking’ Decision to Withdraw From Competition – Dave and Connor O’Leary’s time on The Amazing Race didn’t end the way they thought it would. The father-son team — both cancer survivors — chose to withdraw from the competition in Sunday night’s episode after the elder O’Leary tore his Achilles tendon in a previous leg of the race.
