Cher's tears of pride at son Chaz's performance

Tuesday October 11, 2011

“OMG! I WAS CRYING ! WASNT EXPECTING 2 B SO NERVOUS ! BROKE MY BRACELET CLAPPING ! IM SO PROUD !! CHAZ WAS GREAT!!" tweeted Cher excitedly after her son's latest performance on a US dance show. 

The singer, who openly supported her transgender son throughout his transformation into a man, has also stood by him as he competes on Dancing With the Stars. 

She has been using Twitter to show how proud she is, and to encourage her own fans to give their support.

Up until now, Cher was unable to go to any of the live shows herself, but she finally made it on Monday night and was able to see Chaz make his highest score yet. 

Having previously received low marks, this time he gained sevens from each of the three judges.

The theme was ‘movies night’ and Chaz danced to the music of Rocky.

Judge Bruno Tonioli said of his performance: “In the true spirit of Rocky, no matter how many knocks you take, you keep coming back, you keep fighting and you keep getting stronger”.
