BFF Alert!  

After making into American Idol’s top seven, Kree Harrison revealed she has friend who is no stranger to the Idol stage— Kellie Pickler!
 
But how did the two singers first meet?
 
“A couple years through a mutual friend in Nashville," 22-year-old Kree revealed. "[Kellie] is a doll, I adore her and I grew up with her husband. She is literally the sweetest woman; she is inspiring in so many ways— not only her story, but just as a person. She’s very sincere.”
 
 
Kellie competed on American Idol during the show’s fifth season and made it all the way to the top six. She’s now competing on the current season of Dancing With the Stars.
 
The two besties have even made a pact based on the outcome of their shows!
 
“We have decided that if we win, which I know she is going to win DWTS, we are going to go get matching tattoos,” the brunette beauty dished.
 
 
Lucky for Kree, Kellie had some advice to share about the legendary singing competition: “More so than anything stay true to who you are.” Spoken like a true Idol veteran!
 
But Kree isn’t the only hopeful Kellie’s gotten chummy with.
 
“She loves Janelle,” Kree shared. “They remind me a lot of each other. They’re witty; they’re both really witty.”
 
Maybe Kellie and Kree will hit the Idol stage for a duet in the future? Best of luck to both talented ladies!
