Everyone on the Barker side is rooting for Charli D’Amelio.
During week three of season 31, Charli, age 18, resumed her quest for the Mirrorball Trophy on Dancing with the Stars on Monday night.
Her new beau, Landon Barker, 18, came this time to cheer her on. His father, Travis Barker, and Kourtney Kardashian, who was there to support her sister Charli and her boyfriend, Mark Ballas, were in the front row with him.
When the camera switched to Travis, Landon, and Kourtney after Charli’s seductive rumba to Billie Eilish’s “No Time to Die,” they enthusiastically cheered her on.
Even co-host Tyra Banks recognized them, albeit she mispronounced Landon’s name.
She introduced Charli’s friends Kourtney Kardashian Barker, Travis Barker, and Logan Barker. You should be very proud of yourselves, I’m sure.
Travis was seen at the time embracing Kourtney, who was beaming at the time.
After last week’s “Elvis Week” performance, Charli said it felt “wonderful to be at the top of the leaderboard,” but she also said she could “have done more” in her introduction package.
Mark gave her the advice to pay attention to her feet and the relationship between them this week. The dancer warned that she has “never tried to be romantic or anything,” therefore it would be difficult for her to perform.
Carrie Ann Inaba asked Charli to act more openly in their next dance, while Bruno Tonioli said he was “all shook, stirred, and enamored with you” after their performance on Dancing With the Stars. They scored the season’s first nine goals and finished the night with a 33/40 record.
Charli revealed last month that Dancing With the Stars had helped her rediscover her passion for dancing.
Charli recently expressed renewed enthusiasm for performing on the PEOPLE Everyday podcast hosted by Janine Rubenstein.
Charli admitted, “You know, dance wasn’t something that I found fun anymore.” “It was the right thing to do, I did it because it needed to be done, and then it was over and I didn’t miss it. People tell me all the time that I look like I’m finally having fun on Dancing with the Stars, and I think it’s because of the show.”
Charli D’Amelio, who participated in the podcast with her sister Dixie D’Amelio, 21, said that Charli had “sort of lost” her passion for dancing after she and Dixie became TikTok stars in 2019 and 2020.
Charli rediscovered a joy for dancing that she had believed she had lost forever and explained it this way: “I look happy and I’m experiencing, kind of, those same feelings that I used to experience when I was younger, dancing.”
“The reason being, it had been a while since I felt this way about a performance. In a way, being able to do it again feels like coming full circle, and that fills me with joy.”
