Rumer Willis Pens a Touching Tribute to 'DWTS' Pro Val Chmerkovskiy


Val Chmerkovskiy may be getting a new dance partner on Dancing With the Stars next season, but that person definitely has a lot to live up to!

Rumer Willis was not only a mirror ball champ with Chmerkovskiy on season 20, but she should totally win another trophy for the love and gratitude she expressed for her partner on Wednesday.

In a lengthy caption on an Instagram photo collage of the dancing duo, the 26-year-old wrote, "As my journey as your partner comes to an end and your next season with a whole new partner and new experience begins, there are a few things I thought about today. I honestly don't know if I have words to describe what this past season or this tour, but most importantly our partnership has meant to me. I know I have tried on many occasion while on tour to describe to the audience what I felt but I have always fallen short to put in words how I feel. So I'll do my best."

As my journey as your partner comes to an end and your next season with a whole new partner and new experience begins, there are a few things I thought about today. I honestly don't know if I have words to describe what this past season or this tour, but most importantly our partnership has meant to me. I know I have tried on many occasion while on tour to describe to the audience what I felt but I have always fallen short to put in words how I feel. So I'll do my best...first I have to thank you as my teacher for challenging me everyday through your own passion and dedication to your art, for pushing me past the limits of what I believed I was capable of and even for occasionally driving me crazy with trying to make all of our dances the best they could be. Secondly I thank you for believing in me when I didn't believe in myself for putting up with me when I was scared or insecure, and being the person that didn't let me feel like I could fail no matter what anyone else said. I am truly grateful to call you my friend and I am so proud that we won together, I wouldn't have wanted to do it with anyone else. I can't wait to root for you next season. 💋 love to you always @iamvalc

"First I have to thank you as my teacher for challenging me everyday through your own passion and dedication to your art, for pushing me past the limits of what I believed I was capable of and even for occasionally driving me crazy with trying to make all of our dances the best they could be," she added.

But that's only one thank you from the daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore.

And the gratitude doesn't stop there.

Seeing you grow and become a proud young woman with your head held high and your star shining brighter than ever has been one of the most rewarding things I have ever done.
