Alaina is paired with veteran dancer Gleb Savchenko, which should be great for the country star. The only downside: Savchenko still hasn’t finished better than 4th place in any season.
.@Lauren_Alaina and birthday boy @Gleb_Savchenko brought the heat to @Dancingabc tonight. Although they're glad week 1 is over, there's still more to go and we can't wait to see what comes next from this duo! #LaurenAlaina #DWTS pic.twitter.com/AWF361eNtn— On The Red Carpet (@OnTheRedCarpet) September 17, 2019
Last year’s champion, radio host Bobby Bones, has been a mentor for Alaina and showed his support of her performance last night.
Oh and yesterday was a BIG news day for Lauren. But we’ll update you on that more later!
