They're pals even off the parquet!
After performing together on Dancing with the Stars
this week, Kellie Pickler
and pro Derek Hough
enjoyed a night out with fellow DWTS
pals (and Picker's husband Kyle Jacobs
) at the Sayers Club in L.A.
The country star
, in skinny black pants and a black sweater, spent most of her time with her hubby and a brunette friend – but then she was front and center as Mark Ballas
took the stage (at 12:35 a.m.) for a seven-song concert. Pickler was spotted cheering and clapping along to the music, though by the fourth song or so, she seemed to be a bit tired and headed over to the tables where her dance partner Hough was watching the show.
Pickler caught the rest of the show at the table, sipping water from a bottle, before heading out with her hubby.
Hough, meanwhile, seemed to be keeping a low profile, though he certainly was enjoying Ballas's set.
Ballas, for his part, announced the titles of the songs he was playing from the stage, pausing occasionally to sip a vodka cocktail. Included in the set: a cover of James Brown's "I Got You (I Feel Good)."
