Almost a month after Lauren Alaina was announced as one of this season’s celebrities joining Dancing With The Stars, the adorable singer made her dancing debut Monday night.

And she was wonderful!

Up until the show’s premiere last night, it wasn’t known who would be Lauren’s partner. There was fan speculation it would be dance pro Alan Bersten after Lauren had followed him on Instagram. Turns out, however, that we were all wrong and her dance partner ended up being Gleb Savchenko. The pair tore up the dance floor with a Cha-Cha set to Shania Twain’s Man! I Feel Like a Woman…and it was fire!

Check it out below.

After their debut dance, Lauren and Gleb took to Instagram to share their excitement.

Beautiful partner indeed.

Unfortunately, the day wasn’t all fun and games as just hours before her DWTS debut, Lauren revealed that she is now a single lady. Back in May, the singer had revealed during an interview that she was dating comedian John Crist. Unfortunately, the union didn’t last long and yesterday during an interview with The Bobby Bones show, she revealed that they had called it quits.

“How does your boyfriend feel about you being on this show now that you’ve been practicing for a couple of weeks?” Radio host Bobby Bones asked Alaina.

“Well, I don’t have a boyfriend,” the American Idol alum replied. “No, I don’t have a boyfriend anymore.”

Bobby then jokingly asked Lauren if the breakup was caused by her falling in love with her new dance partner. Of course she said no. Funny enough, though, that was my first thought, or at least the thought of jealousy was my first thought. I mean, it’s common for the dance partners to date and sometimes even marry, so it’s definitely not a far-fetched idea.

In any case, Lauren and Gleb definitely have chemistry and it’ll be fun to see what dance routines they dream up in the coming weeks.

“Dancing With The Stars” airs Mondays on ABC.
