Kellie Pickler Wants That Mirror Ball Trophy Though Her Calves Feel Like "Overcooked Noodles"

ABCThis week, a new Dancing with the Stars champion will be crowned. The finals begin Monday night with the four remaining couples -- Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff, Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough, Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas, and Zendaya and Val Chmerkovskiy -- stepping onto the dance floor to perform three times.

First, the duos will have to repeat a dance style as chosen by the judges. Next, the couples will take part in a "cha cha relay," in which they each dance to a different section of the same song. Finally, the pairs will participate in a "supersized freestyle."

Kellie Pickler undoubtedly wants the Mirror Ball trophy, but if she does take it, it will have come at a price. The country singer tells ABC News Radio, "My legs are sore. My calf is, we have to do the quickstep this week. That dance is exhausting. My legs, they're like overcooked noodles where they're just like, they're going to collapse at any minute."

The performance show airs Monday on ABC at 8 p.m. Eastern time. The Mirror Ball trophy will be awarded Tuesday night, at the end of a two-hour results show.
