Dancing With the Stars 2013: Kellie Pickler Is “Bringing the Crazy” to Season 16 (VIDEO)

For the first time ever, an American Idol alum is competing on Dancing With the Stars 2013. Country cutie Kellie Pickler will dance with three-time champ Derek Hough on DWTS Season 16, which premieres March 18 on ABC.

On the Red Carpet asked Kellie what she’ll bring to DWTS that the other contestants won't have — what's her unique trait?

Kellie [thinks about it for a while]: "I'm crazy."

Derek: "She is a bit, uh — that's a good one!"

Kellie: "I'm bringing the crazy out here to the dance floor! Got my crazy shoes on. I don't know, I think everyone's going to bring something different. I just want to have a good time. This is really an opportunity to step outside of my comfort zone and just grow."

Kellie, now 26, said she was "19 and green" when she got in line for Idol Season 5. DWTS is completely different, except for how they both involve fans, which she thinks is great. Kellie and Derek already have semi-matching hairstyles and Derek said he's starting to pick up her Southern accent. So don’t be surprised if you start hearing him say “y’all” with a little twang!

(And for the record, she’s not the only “crazy” contestant this season, especially with Andy Dick in the cast!)
