And Lauren was most impressed with Gavin DeGraw, gushing, via Twitter, that “he’s amazing” and posting a pic of the two of them together .
As for Lauren, she sang a pop-country Christmas medley that included “Blue Christmas” and “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.”

“At dinner with my bestie,” Lauren tweeted, along with the pic of the two . “I love this girl!”
