'Dancing With The Stars': Kellie Pickler Blows The Judges Away (VIDEO)

Kellie Pickler hasn't given up on the dream of winning a reality competition show. She only came in sixth place back on Season 5 of "American Idol" -- though she's gone on to find success in Nashville anyway. Based on her Week 2 performance on "Dancing With the Stars," she's definitely looking to improve that "Idol" ranking.

The judges were blown away by Kellie's jazz routine, and so were critics. Wetpaint said that based on that performance, Kellie is destined for the Final Three. SheKnows was loving it, too, saying that Kellie was "in a different league" from her competition.

"Everything about it, I am blown away. I can’t wait for next week," Carrie Ann Inaba told her.

Len Goodman said, "For week two, last week was a spark. This is a fire. Well done."

The judges gave her 26 points, which tied for the highest score of the night with Zendaya. That should be enough to save her this week as "Dancing With the Stars" continues on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET and Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
