Rumer Willis Dancing With The Stars Premiere


Rumer Willis and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy wowed the judges and the audience with their first routine, which earned them highest score on the “Dancing With The Stars” season 20 premiere. The two danced their way to the top spot after nailing a sultry Foxtrot to “Take Me To Church” by Hozier (video below).

“That was incredible, that was passionate, that was intense,” Carrie Ann Inaba told Willis and Chmerkovskiy, who said earlier in the show he was trying to win the Mirror Ball trophy this season. “You are in it to win it,” added an overjoyed Inaba. Len Goodman, usually the toughest judge, was all smiles as he told Chmerkovskiy, “This could be your season.”

“I have chills,” said Julianne Hough as the crowd cheered. “For me, you guys are definitely the ones to watch,” she added. And Bruno Tonioli couldn’t contain his excitement, exclaiming that Willis had “the best arms I seen tonight.” The top-rated routine earned Willis and Chmerkovskiy a score of 32 out of 40.

Among those cheering Willis on in the audience were her famous parents Demi Moore and Bruce Willis.
