Bindi Irwin is burning up the dance floor on US Dancing With The Stars, wowing the American audience and making us super proud. She’s even given a couple of nods to her Aussie roots and her late dad, Steve Irwin (AC/DC’s ‘You Shook Me All Night Long’ tango and a ‘Crocodile Rock’ jive) but her next dance is directly for her dad.
E! Online report that Bindi and her dance partner, Derek Hough will perform a contemporary routine to ‘Every Breath You Take’ by Aaron Krause ft. Liza Anne.
Bindi opened up to E!Online early in the season about how Steve would be guiding her through the dancing competition.
‘I think for me, Dad will always be my superhero,’ she said. ‘You know, everything I do in life is to make him proud and to carry on his legacy, and so I really am dedicating this entire – however long I’m able to make it – to him, to my family.
‘You know, after you lose a person like that, you feel like the sun will never shine again, but it will, and it may not shine as brightly, but you have to find that light in everything that you do.
‘I feel like this experience, getting to work with Derek and the beautiful people on this show, has really been such a bright place for me, and I’m excited to focus all of my energy on doing the best job possible.’
Bindi has found a great support in Hough, too, often posting her admiration and appreciation for the talented dancer partner.
This week on @dancingabc is focused on Most Memorable Year and has been filled with many emotional moments. Words can’t express how grateful I am for all of the support from @derekhough. He has been there to help me on this journey and create something beautiful that means so much to me, for Monday night’s show. His strength and hugs are getting me through this week – as a friend and big brother. #TeamCrikey
It looks like Bindi is also spreading the Aussie love to others on the show!
