Crikey, there's no way Bindi Irwin was going to get eliminated from "Dancing With the Stars" after a moment like that.

The daughter of "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin paid tribute to her dad on Monday's finale – Part 1, when she and partner Derek Hough pulled off a lovely interpretation of "Footprints in the Sand." The dance ended with Irwin and Hough looking back at an old family photo, at which point the young "Star" lost it.

Bindi wept and fell into Hough's arms, when any dry-eye in the house didn't remain that way for long. The judges cried through their high praise, and Bindi's mom — Steve's widow — was an understandable mess.
