This week, on Dancing With the Stars, contestants were challenged to choose the most meaningful year of their lives and create a dance that reflected their experiences. Bindi Irwin, daughter of the beloved Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, chose 2006, the year her dad passed away.
It was, understandably, a very emotional week for the now 17-year-old Bindi, and the most candid she’s been about her dad’s death yet. She goes on to deliver a flawless dance to Every Breath You Take, in his honor.
Bindi has grown into such a strong, intelligent, kind young woman and a beautiful dancer. She is following so closely in her father’s footsteps.
