Lauren Alaina, best known from being a contestant on the 10th season of “American Idol”, has been gliding through the 28th season of “Dancing With The Stars”.
According to an interview with People, the singer has dropped a few sizes, saying “I’ve lost like 25 pounds! Since July. None of my clothes fit.”
Alaina has been dancing with her professional partner Gleb Savchenko.
Here’s Alaina almost 10 years ago when she first auditioned for “American Idol”:
This past week, the singer dedicated her dance to her late stepdad and shared: “I was scared of the dance. I was sad,” adding, ‘I was proud that I could do it. I just was really nervous that I was going to get upset before the dance and not be able to do it, breathe, but I got through it, and then I lost it.”
Alaina said, ‘I feel really proud because my stepdad was the most positive, uplifting, happy person I’ve ever met. And if he had been here tonight, he would’ve been the most proud of me.”
Lauren’s emotions were apparent as she started to tear up mid-dance, but beautifully finished off the routine.
Throughout the years, many “Dancing With The Stars” contestants have lost weight during their time on the show, including Rob Kardashian, Tonya Harding and Chaz Bono. Marie Osmond, who now is a host on “The Talk”, lost 27 pounds during her run, and later became the face of Nutrisystem.
Lauren Alaina might be losing weight, but she’s gaining week-over-week successes as she continues to grow as a dancer. Check out some of Alaina’s dances below:
