American Idol alum Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough are the darlings of Dancing With the Stars Season 16. This week, the fan love will likely reach new heights after watching Kellie and Derek on the “Most Memorable Year”-themed episode Monday night. They danced the rumba to a song written for the country music singer by her husband for their wedding, how sweet is that? Hand me the tissues, quick!
Kellie announced the special news that she and her pro partner would be dancing to the song written by husband Kyle Jacobs in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres. Kyle actually signed up to appear on DWTS 16 to perform the song live with the band while his gorgeous wife danced.
“Kellie’s doing so well on the show, and she’s having so much fun,” Kyle said. “The fact that she’s dancing to this song, our song, means so very much to both of us… it honors the love that we have so much.”
Nothing could be more lovely than watching Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough perform to the beautiful sounds of love and devotion in musical form. And no worries, there is nothing at all for Kyle to be jealous about while watching his beautiful wife spin around the dance floor with Derek. Kellie told Ellen her “husband knows he’s always going to get the last dance.”
