I'm sorry. After seeing Kellie Pickler last night, I am now forced to say that I actually kind of like her.

Kellie, I know you've had to deal with your share of people taking jabs at you, not the least of which was me. It's all part of chasing fame. I know you probably weren't quite ready for all of it, but that's the way the game goes. I know you've probably had your nights of crying into your pillow for some of those things that were said. And that's on top of your own family troubles.

After last night, I became convinced that you're probably a pretty nice person in real life. And therefore, I offer you an apology for the ugly things I've said about you.

I hope you'll accept my apology, even if it took me till after the finale to "Pick Pickler." You were the cutest thing on stage last night, and I wish you the best of luck.

Oh, you went to the dark side...

Ew boy, next thing you know, you're going to try and convince us that Brenna Gethers and Kevin Covais were robbed and that Paula Abdul makes sense when she speaks.

Are you trying to get an interview with Kellie? Is that what this is about? Or a date? There must be a logical explanation...

Did you take a sip from Paula's cup? Or maybe you stole the meds that she stole from Simon and Randy?

How quickly you seem to have forgotten that you didn't like Pickler...Remember - nasal? Remember Ick? Remember "sawry"? Remember how many times you used the word horrible when describing her performances? Should I link some of your old posts for you?

*Pout* I thought you were one of us.

LOL, no, I don't think Kevin or Brenna were robbed. Brenna was a jerk the whole way through, and Kevin...well... he just bought his own hype.

I guess I just looked at Kellie differently tonight. No longer was she competing and taking up a more deserving contestant's spot. I make no bones about the fact that she never deserved to make the Top 12 in the first place. She had no business there. But she does seem to have a decent personality, and I sensed a touch of pain in her when she said "people made fun of me" that pulled on my heart strings.

Am I being manipulated by Nigel and Co.? Possibly. Was Kellie using her southern charm to try to manipulate the voters. Undeniably. But now that she's outside the competition, I find her cute...not a great singer, but not a Sith Lord either.

Still don't like her singing, and her track on the Encores CD was butt, but I can't help but feel for the girl.

And hey, an interview would be great. I'd take a date too.

That angel on your shoulder must be smiling today! I think Kellie would be great in an updated, reality version of "the Beverley Hillbillies" - she's adorable! (But can't sing - you are right). Have a fun day!

Ok, yea for you and your Pickle love but HELLO! Can we just talk about Clay Aiken's hair? WTF?

The hair hurt my eyes.

I liked when TOni Braxton tried to get Taylor to dirty dance...

Not to mention that Kat is NOT as good of a singer/performer as Taylor, sorry Ali. Kat is a different style altogether. The style of music that she sings forces her to be compared to people like Mariah, Whitney, Celine. So... she is just like them, only not as good. Taylor on the other hand, has a soulful style. He can be compared to people like Ray LaMontagne...Joe Cocker... and he IS just as good, or better. Not to mention that he is an amazing performer. I can't take my eyes of him when he's up there. So when you compare the two, taking into account their different styles... yes, Taylor is better. I'm sorry he just is. Not everyone has to sing the teary-eyed, pop "dream come true" songs with super high notes to be considered a good singer. Either way, they both have record deals. I'd buy 10 of his before I'd buy 1 of hers.

Kristen - I agree with you about Clay's hair. I couldn't tell who the hell was coming down stage until they finally put the spotlight on him. At first I was wondering if it could possibly be Elton John himself... but then realized that it was Clay.

What WAS that hairdo?

I agree, Kellie is just darn cute. I was born, raised, and still live about an hour or so from Albemarle (in a muuuuch bigger city). I know a good deal of people with simular personalities to this girl, so when she made it through, I had to pull for her some. I didn't vote for her, because I'm a diehard Taylor fan, but I thought nice thoughts about her.
Katharine made my skin crawl. Let me rephrase that, her personality made my skin crawl. Her voice reminded me of the UNC-CH Tarheels. They have the nickname around here of the ChokeHeels because they have a bad habit of starting out great and then stinking it up. Katharine could have a great singing career as long as she never has to sing live. Maybe the tour will help her overcome her addiction to screeching. Either that or ears in stadiums across the country will bleed.
okay, enough out of me.
Or not...I checked out your profile... I should have known you were a Dave Barry fan. Love that guy.

I was not a Kellie fan - but I have to admit its a lot easier to like her when I'm not worried that she might somehow become the next American Idol.
