CMA Awards Favorite Moments

Blake and Miranda

Another CMA Awards night has come and gone, but certain moments left lasting impressions on our staff. If you follow us on Twitter, you know we spent the majority of the show cracking on Sheryl Crow‘s hair, Dolly Parton‘s assets, Zac Brown Band‘s beards, and Kacey Musgraves‘ b****y resting face. While those particular things set the stage for our jokes, puns, and #sarcastictweets, our staff compiled a list of our other favorite moments of the night. The following are those award show memories that are ingrained in our minds:

Kellie Pickler Wins “Dancing With The Stars”

164909_467725726638437_1895754039_n

Kellie Pickler is the new Dancing With The Stars champion!

Country’s sweetheart and her partner, Derek Hough, took home the Mirror Ball Trophy last night. The pair wowed us all season, and their performances were near perfection on Monday. Their freestyle dance was absolutely stunning and had the ballroom in tears. If you missed it, check out the video below. It’s probably the best dance ever on Dancing With The Stars.

We know Kellie is amazingly talented when it comes to music, but she also has the talent when it comes to dancing. The judges even compared her to Derek’s sister and superstar dancer/country singer, Julianne Hough, during the finale. She truly looked like a professional out on the floor.

On top of her top-notch dancing skills, the genuine personality and classiness that Kellie brings to everything she does was clearly evident every week. People fell in love with her on American Idol years ago, and they got to fall in love with her all over again on Dancing With The Stars.

Congratulations to Kellie and Derek! We’ve always been Team Pickler. The win was very well deserved and we are so happy for you.

While we are at it, let’s take a look at some of our other favorite Pickler dances this season.

Jazz Routine – Week 2:

Rumba – Week 4 with special appearance by Kellie’s husband and songwriter, Kyle Jacobs:

Argentine Tango – Week 9:

Julianne Hough victim of jewelry theft

Julianne Hough.

Former country singer Julianne Hough was a victim of a pretty serious car theft in Los Angeles on Friday night. The singer/actress/dancer left $100,000 worth of jewelry in her Mercedes at a Hollywood apartment complex while visiting a friend. When she came back to the lot afterwards, everything was missing… and what’s worse is that the three pricey pieces of jewelry were a gift from her boyfriend, Ryan Seacrest. Included in the theft was a $50,000 watch, reports TMZ.

There were no signs of visible forced entry on the scene, so its possible that she left her car unlocked. The “That Song In My Head” singer had found the car door left wide open.

It’s Official: Kellie Pickler & Wynonna Judd on “Dancing With The Stars”

dwts27f-1

We shared the internet buzz with you yesterday, but this morning Good Morning America made the official cast announcement for ABC’s Dancing With The Stars.

Country stars, Kellie Pickler and Wynonna Judd, will in fact be participating this season!

The always adorable and fun, Pickler, will be paired with Derek Hough, the brother of another country sweetheart, Julianne Hough. Pickler is the first past American Idol contestant to compete on the show.

Meanwhile, vocal powerhouse and 5-time Grammy winner, Judd, will be partnered with Tony Dovolani.

It should be an entertaining season for country music fans. Both pairs are a great match, and I can’t wait to watch!

Taylor Swift, Kellie Pickler & Julianne Hough Make Maxim List

Kellie Pickler.

Country music beauties Kellie Pickler, Taylor Swift, and Julianne Hough have made Maxim magazine’s 2012 Hot 100 Women list. They’re the only country stars to make the list, but are representing pretty well with the reader votes: Taylor ranks in at number 26, Kellie at number 72, and Julianne at number 47. They beat out Pippa Middleton, Nicki Minaj, Nina Dobrev and more. Supermodel Bar Refaeli took the number one spot. See the full list here on Maxim’s site.

Do you agree with the rankings? Who do you think is country music’s hottest woman?

Rock of Ages Poster

Broadway’s hit musical, Rock of Ages, is slated to hit theaters nationwide in June 2012, and country sweetheart, Julianne Hough, stars as the female lead. Hough will play opposite Diego Gonzalez Boneta, who is best known for his role on “Pretty Little Liars.” The all-star cast also includes Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Paul Giamatti, Russell Brand, Mary J. Blige, ”Watchmen” actress Malin Akerman, and “Breaking Bad” actor Bryan Cranston.

Rock of Ages is one of my very favorite Broadway shows, and I cannot wait for the movie especially with Hough in the starring role!

Julianne Hough: Second Country Album Has Been Done ‘A While’

Julianne Hough

Julianne Hough has been absent from the country music scene from some time now, as well as the “Dancing With the Stars” stage. The last time she was on the stage was with now ex-boyfriend Chuck Wicks in the Spring of 2009. She did make a re-appearance to DWTS last week during the show’s Movie Soundtrack week, dancing to the title track of her new movie while Blake Shelton performed it. The last music we heard from her was also in 2009 when she toured with George Strait. That same year, she also won her very first ACM Award. With an absence of any new music recently, as well as her new-found success in the world of film, fans have been left wondering whether or not Julianne is finished with her singing career. While promoting her new movie, Footloose, earlier this month, Julianne revealed that her sophomore country album has actually been completed for quite a while.
