After a knee injury and two weeks squarely at the bottom of the leaderboard, Chaz Bono finally upped his game on Monday night’s “Dancing with the Stars.”

In front of his superstar mother, Cher, the rest of his family and an audience of millions, the activist and author, dancing the paso doble with partner Lacey Schwimmer to the theme from “Rocky,” battled his way back into the competition.

“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,” judge Bruno Tonioli said.

Chaz’s performance, which benefited from a little rehearsal coaching from none other than Richard Simmons, also touched Cher, who – along with the ballroom audience – gave her son a standing ovation, as tears welled up in her eyes.

“OMG! I WAS CRYING ! WASNT EXPECTING 2 B SO NERVOUS ! BROKE MY BRACELET CLAPPING ! IM SO PROUD,” Cher Tweeted after the show. “CHAZ WAS GREAT! LOVED DAVID ARQUETTE 2nd.”

Judge Carrie Ann Inaba too was left misty-eyed.

“I’m trying to figure out why I’m, crying,” Carrie Ann commented. “It’s like, I watch you and somehow you get under my skin and you make me root for you… Your true courage and the way you get out there, I was like, ‘Go! Go! Go!’”

Chaz and Lacey earned a total score of 21/30, putting them in a tie for sixth place with HLN host Nancy Grace and her Irish ballroom hunk, Tristan MacManus, and original co-frontrunners Chynna Phillips and Tony Dovolani. Whether Chaz’s personal dancing improvement will be enough to carry him through to Week 5, however, will be up to the voters.

The bottom of the leaderboard this week went to 20-point scoring Carson Kressley and Anna Trebunskaya for a shaky, although entirely entertaining, Viennese waltz to the “Curse of the Black Pearl” from “Pirates of the Caribbean.”

Len Goodman even said if he was at home, he’d be giving Carson his vote.

As for that top leaderboard spot, it once again was held by a stunning Ricki Lake and Derek Hough who brought major drama to the ballroom as they tangoed to the theme from “Psycho.”

The pair began their dance in silhouette, before taking their crisp moves out into the ballroom, bathed in a red light, impressing the audience to the tune of a loud standing ovation.

“Brilliance in the ballroom,” Carrie Ann said simply as Ricki and Derek took the first 10s of Season 13 (from Carrie Ann and Bruno) and one 9 from Len Goodman for a total score of 29/30.

Their closest competitors, J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff, who fox trotted to the theme from “The Pink Panther” scored a full three points less – just 26/30.

As for David Arquette (whom Cher Tweeted was her second favorite), it was actually a redemption night for the actor who was cheered on by actress sisters Roseanna and Patricia Arquette, as well as his daughter Coco (who appeared to be seated next to Cher) and Courteney Cox.

David and Kym put on a strong paso doble to the theme from “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” which was full of gusto.

“Suddenly this week there’s like this incredible amount of bravado under your dancing,” Carrie Ann said. “It just catapulted you to another level… I loved every minute of it, it was like watching an athlete.”

    Chaz was great. I am glad that he is still in the mix. Cher I am sure that you being there spurred him on tod do his best. You should be there more often. I am sure he would feel the love from you and maybe go on to win.

    The pride just poured out of Cher last night. It was so cool. We don’t get to see her in Mom mode very often and she was just glowing. She was clearly there as Cher the mom and not Cher the entertainer. And lucky Coco sitting next to Cher!!!

  8. it was a beautiful thing to see. this kind of unconditional love is rare and to have your whole family there must have been worth every insult put down or hateful thing Chaz has had to endure since his change. God bless him and this whole amazing family.

    Everyone, pay no attention to Jill. We have a name for people like that–it’s called a troll, best not to feed them.

    She looked lovely and you could tell she was shying from the camera quite a bit–wanted to focus on Chaz and wanted Chaz to be the focus. I got misty eyed when I saw her crying. Just, such a sweet moment to witness. I hope Chaz makes it far. That would be lovely.

    Chur tweeted that she may have another cameo up her sleeve. She needs to be pulling that single out of her sleeve not another dancing with tha stars cameo.

    Not sure what Jill is talking about. THAT WAS CHER in the audience. No impersonator could show that kind of love and pride in his/her face. Only the real Mom. And it was so cool seeing Cher be just Cher the mom last night. She wasn’t there for any other reason but to support her son. And you can’t fake that kind of love. Nope, it was Cher and ONLY Cher in the audience.

    Cher has said that she like’s it when people impersonate her, and she really does seem to – she took a female impersonater on tour with her, but I don’t think there is any way she would let someone impersonate Cher the mom.
