It has been an emotional rollercoaster for Chaz Bono ever since he was named a contestant on “Dancing With the Stars,” and last night he had a great time competing.

The transsexual son of Sonny and Cher received a warm response from the judges for his dance floor prowess.

Carrie Ann Inaba declared, “Chazzy Boy, you can dance!” while Len Goodman called him “Razzamataz Chaz,” as he praised him.

And Bruno Tonioli raved, "So cuddly and cute. Great, great debut, Chaz. You should be proud.” Bono and his partner Lacey Schwimmer scored 17 points.
