Last night, Lauren Alaina and her partner Gleb Savchenko dance the Contemporary and it is very rare that a contestant is able to use their OWN song. Lauren lost her step-dad last October after a battle with stage IV cancer that lasted about a half a year.

She wrote the “The Other Side” and danced to it on Dancing with the Stars Show 6, which happened to be the anniversary of Sam. While dancing, it was hard for Alaina to keep it together, but in the end it was a solid outing for herself and Gleb and they were saved to see next week!
