Cher to Cheer Chaz in Person Tonight on Dancing with the Stars

Tonight, Cher will be making her long-awaited appearance on ABC's Dancing with the Stars to support her son and watch him dance live with Lacey Schwimmer. The proud mom has been a strong supporter of her son since he agreed to dance in front of millions of viewers on national television every week. She often took to Twitter to voice her support:

Ever since Chaz was announced as a participating contestant, speculation has run rampant about whether or not his famous mom would stop by the show to cheer him on.  Cher finally addressed those speculations herself following last week's results show, when she tweeted that she'd be there to support him in person this week.

Despite a knee injury, Chaz is persevering in the competition. Last week, he danced the rumba to 'Laugh at Me,' one of his father's songs. Watch Chaz's performance below:
