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.

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:
