Why we should root for Nashville's Juliette

She might have started off as Nashville's mean girl, but Juliette Barnes has quickly become the character to root for.

When viewers first met the young starlet, played by Hayden Panettiere, she was rude, selfish, overly confident and a downright diva. During her first meeting with Rayna (Connie Britton) she made it clear that she was a superstar on the rise and Rayna was an old, fading has-been. She further proved she'd do anything to get ahead by sleeping with Rayna's producer. (Rayna's ex Deacon wasn't far behind.) But as Juliette's character opened up and her backstory was developed, it wasn't long before we found ourselves wanting her to succeed and thoroughly enjoying the scenes in which she was most vulnerable.

Nashville: Good guys vs. bad guys

Here are our top reasons why we're rooting for Juliette when Nashville returns on Wednesday (airing 10/9c on ABC):

Oh No!!! I understand I have done that too. My DVR was at the point of zero room near Christmas time. You just have to make choices of what you really want to watch with the time you have. I still think you would have loved this show since you love country music.

I can't believe I'm telling you this, but I deleted all of the Nashville episodes off of my DVR.   I was behind by seven episodes and they were jamming up the DVR so I had to get rid of them.    ACK!

I have to admit that there isn't a time I didn't root for Juliette...really I have always just felt bad for her.  She is young, niave, a spoiled brat and fighting tooth and nail to get away from where she was at.  I can understand her being like that and I guess for those reason I never hated her.
