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!

"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."
