After a Billy Joel concert, Gavin DeGraw knew he wanted to become a singer. And thats what he told his parents, who were supportive.

The costume: Karina had too little dress on, although the little that was there was more or less pretty for a ballrom dance. He wore a dressed-down black tie and that was good.
Costume grade: 5/10
Song: New York State of Mind

The judges liked that he’s progressed. Bruno wants to see Gavin do his turns better, but noted he was improving. Carrie Ann agreed about the turns, but her heart was racing to see him dance like that. “My heart’s going all fluttery for you, Gavin!” She said there was an, “authentic attention to detail” in his tender dance skills.
