Having already been a finalist on American Idol, Dancing with the Stars contestant Kellie Pickler shares a bond with Idol's Kree Harrison which could be reinforced with matching tattoos -- if both win their respective competitions.
"She's one of my good friends," Kree tells E! Online, explaining that she and Kellie actually met a few years ago in Nashville through a mutual friend. "She's a doll. I adore her. She's literally the sweetest woman. She's inspiring in so many ways."
Because DWTS and Idol are filming in adjacent Los Angeles studios, the two Nashville transplants stay close with regular texts and meetups. Of course, Kree says, she and Kellie vote for each other on their respective shows; but more than that, she adds, "We've decided that if we win, which I know she's going to win Dancing with the Stars, we're going to go get matching tattoos!"
According to Kree, Kellie's been a great source of advice about competing on Idol, offering insight like "Stay true to who you are," which Kree explains, "I've gotten...a lot because I am a humble person, and that's not going to change."
Kree adds that Kellie has stopped by to visit the Idol set and has become particularly fond of contestant Janelle Arthur. "They remind me a lot of each other," Kree says. "They're both really witty."
