Kellie Pickler Saves the Last Dance
Husband Kyle Jacobs provides the music
Tissue Alert—and you might want to make it a double!
Kellie Pickler and her Dancing With the Stars partner, Derek Hough, will perform the rumba on Monday night's show to “Say I Do,” a song that Kellie's hit songwriting husband, Kyle Jacobs, wrote for his wife for their 2011 wedding.
And to up the emotional ante, Kyle will perform the song himself with the DWTS band.
“It’s going to be an 100 percent emotional moment, and I’m just hoping I can keep it together,” Kyle says. “Kellie’s doing so well on the show, and she’s having so much fun. The fact that she’s dancing to this song, our song, means so very much to both of us. It honors the love that we have so much.”
Kellie announced the special performance during an appearance today on Ellen. When the hilarious talk show host asked about the awkwardness of dancing with another man while her hubs looked on, Kellie said, “My husband always knows he's going to get the last dance.”
Dancing With the Stars airs Monday night at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
