A handful of Dancing with the Stars alums and pros acted like one big, happy family on Sunday night.

Julianne Hough, Derek Hough, Chelsie Hightower and Ricki Lake joined Karina Smirnoff to support her former partner Gavin DeGraw at his concert at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.

"At @GavinDeGraw concert with the gang!" Smirnoff Tweeted, along with a photo of the group. "Woo hoo!"

Following the show, the gang made their way to the Living Room Lounge at the W Hollywood for the hotel's popular Sunday Jazz Series, where Kenny G, Kellan Lutz, Ashley Greene, Lucy Hale and fellow former DWTS contestant Michael Bolton were all on hand as well.

"Julianne gave Gavin a lap dance," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "It was in front of her brother and their whole DWTS crowd!"

I was really hoping we were going to avoid being in the bottom last week on Dancing with the Stars. But in a way it was easier this second time because Gavin and I had been there before, so we knew what to expect.

I thought Gavin did really well with the rumba and I don't think I have ever seen a celebrity progress at the rate that he has. We are taking it one week at a time and each week there is a huge improvement. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed we make it to the end of the finale, so I can see how far Gavin can take this because he is getting so good and turning in to a dancer.

One of the reasons he is improving is that we come into the studio looking forward to our rehearsals because we are laughing and having a good time. I met Gavin for the first time about three years ago at an event and I thought he was very cute and charming, but now that we are working together I have discovered even more sides of Gavin. He is intelligent, funny and he makes every situation better. We have a great, organic, natural relationship. I wouldn't change a thing about our dynamic.

Season 14 of Dancing with the Stars premiered with what head judge Len Goodman considered the most impressive debut in the show's history. But it's a competition – and somebody had to go.

With two weeks of combined scores, Martina Navratilova, Melissa Gilbert, Gavin DeGraw and Gladys Knight ranked lowest among the 12 couples on the show. But which celebrity and their pro partner were in jeopardy of heading home once votes were added into the equation? And who was the first to leave the ballroom this season?
