It was an extremely emotional night for Lauren Alaina on last night’s episode of Dancing With The Stars. Lauren and her partner Gleb performed a contemporary dance to her brand new song, “The Other Side,” a powerful tribute to her late stepfather’s final moments.
What a true gift God gave me to share Sam’s story. He was a light in this world and will live on forever through this dance and my new song, “The Other Side.” I will never be able to express the gratitude I have for Gleb Savchenko and Dancing With The Stars.”
Visibly emotional, Lauren was in tears for most of the performance, but was still able to maintain her composure enough to crush the dance before breaking down at the conclusion. Last night was also the one-year anniversary of her stepfather’s passing, so you know it had to be an absolute whirlwind of emotion for Lauren.
Still, she battled through for a performance that she’ll never forget.
