Cher believes in Chaz!

The 65-year-old icon says she'll be in the audience cheering on her son Chaz Bono next week if he makes it to the next round of Dancing with the Stars!

VIDEO: Chaz's "cheeky, joyous' Cha Cha!

"Hope Chaz hangs on till next week so I can come sit in the audience and watch!" she tweeted Monday following Chaz and partner Lacey Schwimmer's rumba.

"Um, I will die," Schwimmer, 23, told Us Weekly Monday. "Fingers crossed!"

Chaz, 42, danced to a song written by his late father, Sonny Bono, called "Laugh at Me."

"My dad would have... really enjoyed it," Chaz told Us. "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 -- we just figured out [he would be 76 years old] and I think he still could have done this show," Chaz said. Sonny died in a skiing accident in 1998 at age 62. "I think he would have probably done really well."
