"Yeah, I am actually really enjoying it," Lauren said of embracing her sexy side. "Gleb is known for sexy dances, so I am really trying to get onboard with the sexy dance."
"I think this was one of our best. We had a little misstep but I'm really proud... I have learned a lot and I am getting a lot better, so I am really proud. I am embracing all things dance, whatever I have to do."
The former American Idol runner-up was previously engaged to her high school sweetheart Alex Hopkins, but the pair called it off and split.
Lauren then entered a relationship with John and went public with their romance back in May.
Lauren has been improving week to week, and she and Gleb have yet to land in the bottom-two couples based on Dancing with the Stars judges' scores and home-viewer votes on elimination nights.
Lauren revealed last week her body is transforming from all of her hard work and she's already lost a whopping 25 pounds by doing the show.
The next Dancing with the Stars broadcast airs Monday night and will feature an all-new "Dance Off" round, and one more couple is expected to be eliminated from the Season 28 competition.
