Chaz Bono and his professional dance partner Lacey Schwimmer danced the Paso Doble to the theme from Rocky.
The dance was largely uninspired and completely terrible. But, the audience ate up the fact that his mother, Cher, was there to cheer him on!
Of the dance, Bruno commented that “no matter how many knocks he takes, he keeps coming back and getting stronger”. Carrie Ann said that he makes her root for him and he has true courage. Len said that he’s getting stronger, but added that it wasn’t a knockout performance. But, he added, that this was his best performance, to date.
Each of the judges gave him a score of seven points, which was obviously too many for the performance that he gave. We would venture a guess of five points each, being more adequate.
Either way, mama Cher was proud of her boy. She cried, cheered and gave Chaz a standing ovation. And we knew ahead of time that Cher was going to turn out for this performance. We had learned that last week, before the voting commenced.
Do you think Chaz will survive another week of dancing on the show? Or this the time he finally gets the boot? Take our poll and let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
