Last night (June 4), the Grand Ole Opry threw a welcome home party for Dancing With The Stars winner Kellie Pickler, who was joined by her dancing partner Derek Hough. Pickler kicked off the first of two sold-out Opry shows with her single “Someone Somewhere Tonight.”

After the song, members of the audience held up paddles giving the singer a perfect “10.”
“Oh my goodness,” Picker said. “Did y’all plan that or did everybody just happen to have those [paddles] in their pocket? That is so sweet. I wish y’all could’ve been the judges!”

During the evening, Pickler received presentations from the Opry, the Nashville Convention and Visitors Corporation and her label Black River Entertainment.

Last night’s show also featured performances by American Idol contestant Kree Harrison, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Bill Anderson, Diamond Rio, Ricky Skaggs and Lennon and Maisy of ABC’s Nashville.
