Despite the controversy surrounding his participation on the show, Chaz Bono has his fair share of supporters as a contestant on "Dancing With the Stars."
Now, his mom, Cher, says she's going to be in the studio audience next week to watch Chaz perform live … assuming he's not voted off in this week's Tuesday night "DWTS" results show, of course.
"God hope Chaz hangs on till next week so I can come sit in the Audience & Watch!" Cher tweeted Monday night, after her son and "DWTS" partner Lacey Schwimmer danced the rumba.
Bono and Schwimmer received the lowest score of the night (for the second week in a row), dancing to "Laugh at Me," a song Bono said he chose on "The Most Memorable Year of My Life" theme night because it was written by his late father, Sonny Bono.
"My dad would have … really enjoyed it," Bono told US Weekly. "I knew if I got an opportunity, I knew I'd use that song. I love that song. I wanted to pay respect to my dad and his legacy. That was really important."
"I think if he was around … I think he still could have done this show. I think he would have probably done really well."
