Bindi Irwin Honors Her Dad in DWTS Performance Video

Bindi Irwin Dedicates an Emotional DWTS Performance to Her Late Dad — Watch and Cry

Bindi Irwin was just 8 years old when her dad, wildlife expert Steve Irwin, passed away in a tragic accident. Now 17, Bindi is preserving her famous father's legacy by working as a conservationist and having some fun as one of the castmates of Dancing With the Stars' 21st season. On Monday, Bindi received the highest score of the night on the show for her heartbreaking performance to a cover of "Every Breath You Take" with her partner, Derek Hough. The song and dance were a tribute to Bindi's late father, and Bindi reflected on her father's tragic death in a prerecorded interview, saying, "What shaped me the most would probably be when my dad passed away. It's been nine years and I've never really dwelled on that point," adding, "I think I'm ready to tell that story."

About prepping for the big performance, she told Us Weekly, "I don't think I've ever cried as much as I have this past week, to be honest!" You won't be able to hold back your own tears while watching Bindi's emotional tribute either.
