When Gavin finished performing, Kelly ran over and told him that she loves the song “Sweeter.” She also noted that he seems to groove with his mic stand a lot more now, after he starred on Dancing with the Stars.
He said that he pretends the stand is his Dancing pro partner, Karina Smirnoff, because he misses her. It is a bit stiffer than she is, though, as he pointed out.
