"The Platinum Pop Star"
Pro: Karina Smirnoff
We all know Gavin DeGraw can sing. Now we're gonna see just how well he can dance!
Gavin is no stranger to the top of the charts. He first broke through with the 2003 release of his debut album, Chariot, which sold over a million copies, earned platinum certification, and yielded three hit singles: "I Don't Want To Be," "Follow Through," and the title-track, "Chariot."
Gavin's self-titled second album debuted at No. 1 on the digital sales chart and at No. 7 on Billboard's Top 200 album chart in 2008, earning Gavin his first Top 10 album. It spawned the hit singles "In Love With A Girl," which Billboard dubbed "a rocking home run," and the gold-certified "We Belong Together." In 2009, Gavin released Free as a gift to his die-hard fans clamoring for recorded versions of Gavin's live favorites.
Gavin released his third studio album, Sweeter in September of 2011. The album's first single, "Not Over You," co-written with OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder, was just certified platinum, is a huge hit and has been climbing the sales and radio charts since its June 2011 release. Wonder if he's get to do a QuickStep to any of his tunes on Dancing with the Stars
