Mama Grizzly, on the sidelines? Sarah Palin, who knows a few smooth moves about about winning votes, will reportedly be taking a seat in the ballroom audience when 'Dancing with the Stars' premieres on Monday night (8 p.m. EST on ABC).

A source has now confirmed to Access Hollywood that the former Alaskan governor and vice-presidential candidate will appear on the live season premiere episode to support daughter Bristol, as the 19-year-old rookie steps on to the dance floor for her first 'DWTS' performance with partner Mark Ballas.

Bookies in Vegas are betting against the teen mom, but any presumptions that her child can't take the top prize may just be catnip for the GOP star, who likely hopes her loyal following will pause the tea partying long enough to phone in decisive votes for Bristol.
