Lauren Alaina on Dancing with the Stars Finale

Did she win?

November 26, 2019

We have a Dancing with the Stars winner. Lauren Alaina, Hannah Brown, Kel Mitchell and Ally Brooke were the finals in Monday's Finale. Up to now, Lauren is the only contest in the finals that hasn't scored a 10 by the judges. 

For her first attempts at a 10s, each contestant choose one of their favorite dances of the season to repeat and hopefully improve on. Lauren and Gleb chose to repeat the Fox Trot to Dolly's Jolene from week four. 

After the routine Judge Carrie Ann Inaba ask Lauren if she was ok. Inaba said she thinks that Lauren is holding back. Shortly after that, part of the stage decoration fell off the judge's table and Lauren helped hold it up just long enough for Judge Len Goodman to say "Well done." It made for funny moment. 

The Judge scores were 9's across the board..STILL no 10 for our Country Girl. 

During the video package to set up Lauren's final dance of the night, All involved were crying. Lauren, speaking of her parter Gleb said "There were times when I thought I wasn't good enough, you led me though it" She even had Gleb crying. 

For her final dance on Dancing with the Stars, This is FREESTYLE... NO RULES, JUST DANCE! She danced to Luke Bryan's "Country Girl - (Shake it for Me)" Lauren was overly pleased with with the song. She stated that Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean took her out on her first tour. She said "You want me to line dance, I'm in!"

The judges were very complementary. Carrie Ann said that was the "perfect free style for you" she went on to say "I've enjoyed watching you." Even Len was in a great mood, "I didn't know what was going to happen, well done!" 

And the best news of all, THREE 10s... perfect score for the freestyle, making her judge's total 57 of 60 for the night on the leaderboard.

However the 10s were not enough to win the mirror ball. When you combine those scores with fan votes, Lauren finished 4th behind Ally(3rd), Kel(2nd) and the winner Hannah Brown.

It was announed that all the finalists plus Kate Flannery and Sailor Brinkley - Cook  will be on the Dancing with the Stars Tour. Looks like Lauren is going to have a busy few months ahead of her.
