Kellie Pickler's 'Where's Tammy Wynette' Wins Over 'American Idol' (VIDEO)

kellie picklerAmerican Idol got a special performance last night: Season 5 finalist Kellie Pickler sang "Where's Tammy Wynette" from her album, 100 Proof. It was a sassy, flirty performance with all the twang you'd want from Kellie. She sang the hell out of that song while grabbing the audience's hands and flirting with the Idol finalists. Basically it was the kind of performance that makes you think Kellie was born to do this -- and the audience ate it all up. Take a look.


SIGH -- if American Idol producers really, truly love us, they'll give us a clear video of her performance. But in the meantime, I sure enjoyed this one. Kellie's made three albums since her Idol days -- and she wasn't even the winner. So that goes to show the finalists who watched her last night that even if they don't come out on top on the show, they can still make it big as a finalist. That must be encouraging!

Meanwhile, Kellie's next single, "100 Proof," drops in another week and a half. Hope it's every bit as good as "Tammy Wynette." Can you believe it's been almost a decade since Kellie said "Pick Pickler!" on American Idol? She's had a sold career, though with a few funny twists -- selling the video of her wedding online (what?!?) and possibly getting some unfortunate plastic surgery. Still, she's still singing strong and that's why the audience loved her last night.
