Bristol Palin performs a racy impression of her mother on Dancing With The Stars
The 19-year-old single mother risked the wrath of Sarah Palin with a racy routine to the rather pointed song choice – Randy Newman’s Mama Told Me Not To Come.
She began her performance in a grey office power suit, a clear send-up of her conservative politician mother.
She soon stripped it off to reveal a provocative red dress with tassels.

Clearly hoping to capitalize on the family’s controversial time in the spotlight, she said: ‘I’ve always been close to my mum growing up but sometimes I haven’t and this song plays on that.’
But it looks like she might have changed her mind.
Sarah insists she was proud of her daughter’s performance.
She wrote on Twitter: ‘Over-the-moon excited and happy for Bristol! Cheering her on @ DWTS party in the Palin living room.’
Bristol and her then boyfriend Levi Johnson famously revealed they were expecting a baby while her mother was running as a U.S. vice-presidential candidate in 2008.
Relations between the Palins and Johnston became strained after the couple broke off their first engagement soon after son Tripp was born in December 2008.
It devolved into a messy tabloid drama as Johnston posed nude for Playgirl and talked badly about Sarah in interviews.
Bristol, who is now a public advocate for abstinence, defied her mother earlier this year when she briefly reconciled with Johnston. However the reunion did not last long and they split in August.
Bristol said before her performance: ‘My life has been told and spread out in the tabloids but I’m just an average girl and this is definitely the most frightening thing I’ve ever done in my life.
I’m not an entertainer, I’m not a performer – so I’m nervous.’
But despite being nervous she was cheered on by the audience and judges, leading her to receive 18 points out of 30.
