Savchenko’s smoldering look and sexy moves were met with screams from the audience as he stepped on stage and into the iconic shower scene “baring all,” which is sure to break the internet. Gleb also turned up the temperature in a steamy number, appropriately called “Seduction,” inspired by “50 Shades of Grey.”


Prior to the performance, Gleb and the cast of Chippendales mingled with partygoers, including his former “Dancing with the Stars” celebrity partner, Shangela (a.k.a. DJ Pierce), from “RuPaul’s Drag Race” fame.
