Chaz Bono has already lasted four weeks on Dancing With the Stars, more than a lot of people expected. But he's got plenty of obstacles still to overcome.

Will Cher perform on Dancing With the Stars this season? That's unclear, but she's made it clear she will be there at least once to support son Chaz Bono.

Sources connected with Cher and Chaz say the criticism over a transgender contestant has given the star even more resolve to stand behind her child.
