Lauren Alaina took her first turn as a fresh contestant on Dancing with the Stars as Season 28 premiered on September 16. The former American Idol runner up seemed at ease on the ballroom floor as she paired with partner Gleb Savchenko to perform a cha cha.
The song that accompanied this new dancing couple was “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” by Shania Twain, which was probably helpful since Lauren is also a country singer. She was all smiles as she was guided by Gleb on the first night of DWTS 2019.
After the performance, head judge Len Goodman put up a 6 on his paddle after stating that Lauren’s rhythm was admirable. He was glad when she and Gleb started dancing which took a while since she was sitting down before the dancing actually began.
