Bristol joked that her younger sister Piper is actually rooting for her rival Kyle Massey, as she’s “starstruck” by the Disney Channel star.

Pro dancer Louis Van Amstel and comic Margaret Cho, while not banging the drum for Sarah's GOP beliefs, said they were happy to see the former vice presidential candidate front-and-center to cheer on her daughter.

"Even though we might both disagree with her as a politician, she's here as a mother and supporting the show and really -- she's not working tonight," Van Amstel said.

"And Bristol's a great, great kid," Cho added.

Dancing With The Stars' eleventh season continues on ABC Tuesday at 9/8c.
