VIDEO: Bindi Irwin pays tribute to late father during emotional DWTS performance

BINDI Irwin’s latest Dancing With The Stars Performance has brought America and Australia to tears as she paid tribute to her late father, crocodile hunter Steve Irwin.

The 17-year-old from the Sunshine Coast received a standing ovation for her emotional performance, which left the whole studio and those watching at home reaching for the tissues to wipe away their tears.


The bubbly teen performed a contemporary routine to the song Every Breath You Take with dance partner Derek Hough, as her mum and brother watched on in the audience.

“This dance is for my dad, and for my family, and for everyone back at home, but for my dad,” Bindi said through tears. “This is for him.”

Bindi and her dance partner received a score of 28 out of 30 for the emotional routine.
