Daytime Emmys 2018: Will Kellie Pickler graduate from ‘American Idol’ finalist to Best Talk Show Host champ?
Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood went from “American Idol” champs to award-winning musicians, but you don’t necessarily have to win “Idol” to win awards. Jennifer Hudson finished seventh in season three of the singing competition, but she went on to win a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for “Dreamgirls” (2006) and Grammys for Best R&B Album (“Jennifer Hudson,” 2009) and Best Musical Theater Album (“The Color Purple,” 2017). Now Kellie Pickler could go from “Idol” finalist to Daytime Emmy winner.

Pickler, who finished sixth in “American Idol” season five, is nominated for Best Informative Talk Show Host alongside her co-host Ben Aaron for their syndicated series “Pickler and Ben.” The series debuted just a few months ago in September 2017, so it has certainly hit the ground running in the awards derby. It tapes in Nashville, Tennessee, and features a combination of lifestyle and entertainment guests with segments on cooking, decorating, gardening, beauty and more.
