Rumer Willis had the support of her famous parents, Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, during Monday’s dramatic part-one finale, of course. And her dad was obviously emotional over her stunning performance with dance partner Val Chmerkovskiy. Her sister Tallulah even stated the following regarding a photo of a teary-eyed Bruce Willis, according to Us Weekly.
“Look at this cutie tearing up from my insanely magical sisters dance. We are all so proud of you Rue. EVERYONE PLEASE VOTE!! PLEASE SHE HAS WORKED SO HARD. 1 (855) 234-5610 #VALENRUE.”
Former stepdad Ashton Kutcher showed his support on Twitter with hundreds of favorites and retweets. He stated the following, according to Us Weekly.
“Vote for @TheRue & @iamValC

Of course, her family and Rumer and Val had a lot to be proud of Monday night. It’s not surprising that they were at the top of the leaderboard with Riker Lynch and Allison Holker. The two couples didn’t disappoint when they tied with perfect scores across two rounds, each team earning perfect 80s. Noah Galloway and partner Sharna Burgess were in third place, with a total score of 72 out of a possible score of 80.
Rumer and Val repeated their successful foxtrot from the first week of competition. Bruno Tonioli, obviously mesmerized by Rumer, called her “dancing royalty” after their routine. Len, not usually easily impressed, was also appreciative of the skill and hard work shown by Rumer and Val. Len said the following, according to Yahoo News.
“Week one I said this could be your season. Nothing’s changed, only your dancing is so much better.”
Rumer and Val, whose chemistry is undeniable, had a steamy, sexy tango-flavored freestyle round. Judge Julianne Hough said that “it was raw, honest, and it was so on-point,” according to Yahoo News.
Her performance was especially awe-inspiring because Rumer was reported to be dealing with a serious injury that affected her practice. She suffered bruised ribs while training for last week’s judges’ choice dance. Although Val urged her to see a doctor, she chose to push through it, according to an article in the Inquisitr. She’s such a professional, it wasn’t even apparent that she had such difficulties.
Now it’s up for grabs who will win when they announce the Season 20 winner on Tuesday night. Who did you vote for and why? Who do you think will win? Please leave your comments below.
