Bindi Irwin doesn’t just share her looks with her late dad Steve Irwin — she shares her courage, too.

The teen paid tribute to her dad Monday on “Dancing With the Stars,” in a moving contemporary dance to “Every Breath You Take” by Aaron Krause.

“It’s been nine years, and I’ve never really dwelled on that point when he did pass away,” Irwin told her dance partner, Derek Hough. “I’m ready to kind of tell that story.”

And tell that story, she did.

Here’s the full segment:

Bindi broke down after performing the dance live with Hough, and the audience responded by giving the pair a standing ovation.

"I wish he could fully understand how much he's done for me," Bindi. "And that I miss him."

We’re sure Steve would be proud, Bindi.
