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!"

It's been almost three years since Michael Bolton and his ex-fiancée Nicollette Sheridan parted ways. But the Grammy-winning artist isn't dwelling on his relationship status.
"I'm single now, and my schedule is probably going to continue in a busy theme for a while longer," Bolton, 58, told PEOPLE on Tuesday after performing his new song, "I'm Not Ready," with Delta Goodrem on Dancing with the Stars. "I almost wouldn't wish me upon [a girlfriend] right now. There's just not a lot of time."
Bolton says he doesn't have anything against being committed to someone, but his schedule doesn't make love easy. Aside from putting the final touches on his upcoming album Gems – The Duets Collection before its June 21 release, he's got his hands full in other ways as well.

Bruno Tonioli is garnering some unexpected support from a gal he once described as "beige" – Kelly Osbourne.
"I thought that Bruno was really harsh on Michael Bolton," the DWTS alum says of the judge's tough critique of the crooner's jive, "but when you watch it you can understand why he was really harsh."
Apparently, having your mother in the audience isn't going to buy you any sympathy votes as far as Osbourne is concerned.
"[Bruno's] a judge, and that's what he gets paid to do." Osbourne, 25, noted Friday while attending Teen Vogue's Young Hollywood Party in Los Angeles. "He's the shock jock of the judging panel. Yes, he was hard, but don't go on a show where you have to judge if you don't want to be judged!"

Michael Bolton is still a fan of Dancing with the Stars. But after judge Bruno Tonioli's "mean-spirited" critique of the singer's dance number Monday, Bolton has a message for the judge: "Bruno should search his soul for what he is doing on that show."
The Grammy award-winning singer – who was voted off the show after Tonioli described his routine as "the worst jive in 11 seasons" and said he did it "very, very, very badly" – says he has nothing but praise for the show itself. "The producers and the people who work for them are phenomenal at making you feel as comfortable as possible."
Though Bolton had said he feels the judge owes him an apology, he isn't going to ask twice.

When Michael Bolton was eliminated from Dancing With the Stars on Tuesday, he called judge Bruno Tonioli "inappropriate and disrespectful" for critiquing his routine with Chelsie Hightower on Monday as "the worst jive . . . ever seen."
But Bolton didn't stop there. The singer appeared on Good Morning America Wednesday, and said Tonioli should be forced to tell viewers that he took his comments too far.

After calling out an "inappropriate and disrespectful" Bruno Tonioli on Tuesday night's Dancing with the Stars, it was clear that an eliminated Michael Bolton was still upset that his performance on Monday was judged "the worst jive . . . ever seen" by the outspoken judge.
Bolton, who rushed to a show in Napa, Calif., just after getting eliminated, didn't make it backstage following his dismissal. But the show's pro dancers stood up for the crooner, arguing that Tonioli's criticism crossed the line.
"I was glad Michael said his piece like that, because no one should have to take that kind of beating," Mark Ballas told PEOPLE. "We're all here trying to learn something new. If you don't think we did great, fine – but give us some constructive feedback so we can walk away and work on it. Don't just drag me through a hedge backwards and then carry me to the ground."

Michael Bolton started off his jive performance with Chelsie Hightower on Monday night Dancing with the Stars in a doghouse, a ballroom prop set up to go with their music selection, Elvis Presley's "Hound Dog."
By the end of the routine, Bolton was in the figurative doghouse with the judges for what Bruno Tonioli called "the worst jive I've ever seen." He gave him just three points, while Carrie Ann Inaba gave him four and Len Goodman gave him five for a total of just 12 out of 30, a season low.
Find out what happened on Tuesday's results show – and if Bolton survived or if he was the second sent home, after David Hasselhoff.

Life is just a little bit lonely for Michael Bolton – and not just because of his recent split from fiancée Nicollette Sheridan.
The newly single singer – who insists he and the Desperate Housewives star "remain friends" – is also adjusting to daily life without his three adult daughters, who have all moved out of the family home in Westport, Conn.
"Empty nest syndrome, that's what I have," Bolton told PEOPLE Sunday at the 16th Annual Michael Bolton Charities for Women and Children At Risk benefit concert at the Rich Forum in Stamford, Conn.
Now that daughters Isa, Holly and Taryn (from his 15-year marriage to Maureen McGuire) have grown up, Bolton has put his waterfront, 2.7-acre estate on the market for $11 million.
Is he feeling sad about selling the Tuscan-style, six-bedroom home he's lived in since 1991? "Well, yes and no," says Bolton, 55. "The reality is I'm spending so much time in Los Angeles and traveling six or seven months a year and working on my record. My daughters are grown up. When I come home and open the door, I hear an echo: 'Hello, hello, hello.' "

Call it a lesson learned for singer-songwriter Ne-Yo.
"I really gotta stop judging books by their cover," the R&B star, who recently logged studio time with Michael Bolton, tells PEOPLE. "I was expecting him to be really up tight. But he wasn't! He was so relaxed, cool and down to earth."
Ne-Yo, whose album Year of the Gentleman hits stores Tuesday, is getting his character flaw in check – he even issued an apology to pop star Lindsay Lohan in August for doubting her musical abilities.
