HOT FROM FOX...
KELLIE PICKLER RETURNS TO "AMERICAN IDOL" TO PERFORM WEDNESDAY, MARCH 19, ON FOX
Season Five finalist Kellie Pickler returns to the AMERICAN IDOL stage, to perform her hit single, "Red High Heels," Wednesday, March 19 (9:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.
After competing on AMERICAN IDOL, Pickler signed with 19 Recordings/BNA Records, and soon thereafter released her debut album, "Small Town Girl." The album quickly became the best-selling debut by a solo country artist that year and was certified gold in January 2007.
Pickler was recently nominated for Top New Female Vocalist by the Academy of Country Music, and earned her first Country Music Association nomination last fall. Her singles, "I Wonder" and "Red High Heels," were both Top 15 hits, and her third single, "Things That Never Cross A Man's Mind," is currently in the Top 20. Pickler is currently on tour with Rascal Flatts.
Tune in Tuesday, March 18 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) when the Top 11 finalists perform songs from the Sony/ATV Music Publishing songbook of the legendary John Lennon and Paul McCartney. On Wednesday, March 19 (9:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), one more contestant will go home, ending their quest to become the next American Idol.
