Where You’ve Seen Her: We've shamelessly caught a few episodes of American Idol, where this country-singing blonde got her start as a contestant on the fifth season. While she may not have won, Kellie quickly became a mainstream celeb thanks to her 2006 album Small Town Girl. Since then, the Southerner has released three additional studios albums and won this year's Dancing with the Stars competition. What's left for this beauty to conquer? Oh yeah - Thanksgiving! In between forkfuls of mashed potatoes be sure to check out her performance at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. You'll be thankful you did.
Get to know another girl, Amanda Brooks, and check out December cover girl Paulina Gretzky.
