Yesterday, we told you how upcoming Stars & Guitars artist Lauren Alaina was the betting favorite going into this season of “Dancing With the Stars.”

On Monday night’s season premiere live episode, she proved why, landing the third highest score of the night.

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.

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!
