Kellie Pickler won the hearts of television viewers as a contestant on the fifth season of AMERICAN IDOL. In 2006, she signed with Sony Records and released her debut album, “Small Town Girl,” which produced three hit singles. In 2008, she released her self-titled sophomore record and in 2011, her third studio album, “100 Proof,” was named the No. 1 Country Album of The Year by Rolling Stone. In 2013, Pickler won the mirror ball trophy when she partnered with dance pro Derek Hough on Season 16 of “Dancing with the Stars.” Later that year, she released her fourth album, “The Woman I Am.” Currently, she and her husband, songwriter/producer Kyle Jacobs, are filming the upcoming cable reality series “I Love Kellie Pickler,” which will air later this year.
Adrienne Bailon was born in New York City and first stepped into the spotlight in 1999, when she was tapped as the lead singer of multi-Platinum R&B girl group, 3LW. She then went on to become a founding member of the pop group The Cheetah Girls, which sparked multiple cable television movies, a world tour and numerous merchandising deals. Bailon’s acting credits include “That’s So Raven,” “Buffalo Dreams,” “All You’ve Got,” “Coach Carter,” ”Lovestruck” and “I’m in Love with a Church Girl.” Additionally, she appeared on her own reality show, “Empire Girls,” and is currently a co-host on the syndicated daytime talk show, “The Real.”
Ross Mathews won the hearts of millions of Americans during his television debut – as a correspondent for “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” Since then he has become a national bestselling author, and a fixture on entertainment television. He can currently be seen doing live red carpet award show coverage year-round. He recently hosted “Live From E!” and his own weekly celebrity gossip and entertainment series, “Hello Ross.” He currently can be seen as a judge on “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” and can be heard weekly on his podcast, “Straight Talk with Ross Mathews.”
