Kellie Pickler and Wynonna Judd On Dancing with the Stars Competitors Roster. The upcoming 16th season of Dancing with the Stars just got a lot more interesting with this week’s announcement of the competitors roster which includes country stars Kellie Pickler and Wynonna Judd! Pickler will be paired with professional dancer and DWTS regular Derek Hough (yes, Julianne Hough’s bro!), and Wynonna will be trying out her own dance skills with Tony Dovolani. Kellie and Judd kind of have their work cut out for them though as they will be dancing against athletes and Olympians (find the whole list below)! I’m not the biggest, biggest fan of reality TV shows, though I do try to keep up with them when country artists are featured, of course. DWTS really is a fun show, and I think that both Kellie and Wynonna were great choices for competitors. Can’t wait to tune in for the premiere on Monday, March 18th, and see how they do! Find complete info on ABC.com.

Tate Stevens Still Doing Great On The X-Factor and Moving On To The Next Round! Thanks to some of our dedicated readers, The X-Factor contest, Tate Stevens was brought to our attention, and we’ve been following his progress since! This talented guy is as humble as they come, and we just love rooting for him. It doesn’t hurt either, that with each performance his proves that tuning into his performances is more than worth our time! Last week, he shook things up and gave viewers his version of Keith Urban‘s “Somebody Like You“. Along with the judges, I really enjoyed the change up in pace, and I thought Stevens nailed it. Still (and I hate to say this), I’ve got to agree with Simon, on that one tiny criticism in regard to his dance moves. On the other hand though, there is something really endearing about Tate’s lack of “hollywood polish” in his stage presence, and honestly, I don’t think that detracts from his performances at all. If you’re already a fan of Stevens, go ahead and enjoy the recap below! If you haven’t checked him yet, do it now! You can keep track of Season 2 of The X-Factor on their official page. Sidenote: I love Tate’s quote, “Second only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.” Perspective, people. Watch Tate Stevens Perform “Somebody Like You“. Did you know you can buy Tate’s renditions of the country hits he sings on the show? Yep, you can! Check it out.
