Things looked a little iffy from the start for fox trot week (April 15) for Kellie Pickler on Dancing With the Stars.

Her pro partner, Derek Hough, said he was nervous, and that made Kellie terrified. Then Derek got annoyed several times with Kellie during rehearsals.

“This week is by far the most frustrating dance for us,” Kellie said beforehand.

And yet, Kellie pranced and glided through the dance, scoring all 9s, for a 27 of 30, second only to her dancing nemisis, Disney star Zendaya Coleman.

The judges loved Kellie.

“That wasn’t a fox trot; that was a hot trot!” Len Goodman declared. “You put the ‘oo’ in ‘smooth.’ You dance like that and I tell you what—you’re in the finals.”
