Kellie Pickler - ACMs 2009

Kellie Pickler sparkles in a gold Zuhair Murad mermaid gown (complete with a fish-scales print) at the 2009 Academy Of Country Music Awards held at the MGM Grand on Sunday (April 5) in Las Vegas.

The 22-year-old country singer will return to the American Idol stage on Wednesday (April 8) to perform her latest single, “Best Days of Your Life.” Kellie and BFF Taylor Swift co-wrote the song.

“Going back to American Idol is like going to a family reunion. Well, it’s more fun than going to my family reunions,” she laughed. “Seriously, it’s always great to see the gang and feel the excitement from the contestants.”

    this person / mermaid is 22? you’re shitting me?? she looks 42…

  • All i’m saying…

    No. No. No.
    She’s too short and wide for this look..
    Can’t be short AND wide and wear this.

  • Nativenyker

    She looks like a wayward sea creature!

  • just me

    Where is the REAL Kellie???? She is so fake and plastic looking now. Nothing like the cute, all natural Kellie I saw on Idol. Now it;s all fake boobs, fake lips and fake hair. Ugh! Just another Hollywood Bimbo!

  • Donna

    It doesn’t even look like her. How much work has she had done? All that at age 22. just wait how awful she will look at 40. Come on Kellie leave things alone. You looked better before.

  • Yar

    I kinda like the dress but not on her. Also her hair and makeup looks horrible. Overall not good.

  • Caley

    Wow. She looks BAD. Botox, boob job, nose job? too much for a 20 year old! She looks OLD. and get your roots done!!!! cute girl but way too big hips for that dress.

    She’s been a disaster lately! KP hire a stylist and lay off the plastic surgery!!!!!!

    You are so FAKE. UGH

  • [~☆Fug Face Man!ston☆~]

    i think she’s dying.

  • Twifanatic Amanda

    What is wrong with her face, has she always looked like that?

  • Adiore

    ew she aged herself.

  • Caley

    she is a joke. Should be kicked out of Nashville.

  • Mandy

    I agree with the first post she looks 42 not 22 by any chance! This woman looks too aged, she’s definately lying her age

  • nessaisstunning

    What happened to the cute, bubbly adorable young woman full of charm and spark? I can’t believe she’s 22. She just looks old and unnatural now–everything looks fake.

    And that dress looks painful, like she can’t breath or move very well. I have no idea how she planned to sit down in that thing without it ripping. Form fitting dresses like that are doable but it also needs to fit and that one looks too tight for it to work.

    Whoever told her plastic surgery plus botox at 21-22 was a good idea should be taken out behind the woodshed because it looks awful, instead of enhancing her features the plastic surgery took away the character in her face and prematurely ages her. Her smile looks fake, probably because she can’t fully move her face due to the botox. I really hope the Hollywood trend of 17-22 year olds getting major plastic surgery and botox ends soon.

  • Kat

    It doesn’t make sense why someone so young would do so many plastic surgeries, even for someone in the 30′s it seems bizarre…It looks like she has cheek implants by the way

  • from canada

    Kelly you look great, loved you on idol and still do.
    You are the most real person I’ve ever seen on tv.
    I know you had a hard life,but you beat it all
    Keep your chin up love Margaret

  • gerard Vandenberg

    you want honesty?
    ………………………………………….ZIP PLEASE!!

  • mary

    oh….. god..

  • KELLIE is #1!
  • mju8

    SHE is 22???????????
    She looks about 42

  • lee

    aw Kellie, you were beautiful just like you were……fresh, sweet, and natural. Now, you look totally plastic and fake. I know Dolly is your favorite but you’re trying too hard to look like her. I know you can’t undo what you already did but stop now.

  • brie2009

    she needs to go back to the ocean!

  • presh

    She was pretty when she was on Idol. I’m not sure what she did but she just looks strange now.

  • Shisha

    Yeah she does look older, I would never say she’s 22 but well… I love the mermaid dress!

  • Judith

    I love this dress!!! Zuhair Murad is my favorite lebanese designer

  • LolaSvelt

    She looks hideous. I thought she was 42, not 22.

  • Joan

    Kellie Girl where have you gone? I’m one of your biggest fans but you have got to stop all the “alterations” on your face and body. Too much already! What on earth would your Grandmother say? Where’s the young innocent American Idol Kellie?

  • JohnP

    The barely concealed jealousy displayed in most of the comments is turning my screen green. She is clearly doing a lot right with her image then!

  • dianel

    #16 I agree any time I’ve seen her on tv she has been happy and bubbley and looked her age

  • lacey j

    What did cute Kellie do to her face!!! OMG!!!

  • cyndee

    Love the dress!!! But is it me or does Kellie look odd? I really liked her wholesome, perky personality and “before” look. Now Kellie looks TOTALLY FAKE!. Really different and NOT in a good way. She now looks like every other 22 yr old Hollywood Bimbo with a boob job! Thats too bad.

  • Chris

    Eww she totally had a ton of facial surgery. She doesnt even look the same. She used to be pretty no she looks old and fake!! ugh

  • cyndee

    What the H*ll happened to Kelly’s face!!! Isn’t she a little too young to be indulging in so much plastic surgery. Kelly looks like a completely different person these days. I would NEVER have recognized her if the photo wasn’t captioned!! I wonder why she is trying to escape her sweet and natural beauty?

  • missy

    She looks great. she has just grown up since idol. stop being so judgmental what are all of you jealous .

  • robyn

    Good grief! You people are so stupid it’s stunning. Kellie has had no plastic surgery done on her face. How ridiculous can you be? She has many different looks with hair styles and makeup. And any simpleton should be aware that everybody photographs differently at times due to many factors, including the aforementioned hair styles and makeup, along with varying elements of lighting etc.

    And yes, she’s only 22. She graduated from high school in 2004, and at 17 was the youngest contestant in the Miss North Carolina Pageant that same year.

  • Kellie is #1!

    Hey stupid, fake, lying bashers, Kellie’s video is still #1! :P :P :P

  • Cheri

    Okay, anyone who seriously thinks she did NOT do anything to her face has got to be smoking something. It was completely obvious in her performance on American Idol tonight that she has had a nose job, among other things. It’s such a shame. She was a beautiful girl. Now she’s just….old looking. Doesn’t look the same at all.

  • stfu everyone

    common people get a sure most of you cannot even compare to what she has accomplished. how she wants to spend her money is how she wants to spend it so lay off she doesn’t look like trash,.. maybe post some of your own pictures so people can bag on you.

  • MMA

    Maybe she should tuck those things away.
