Entertainment Weekly Chats With Rumer Willis And Val Chmerkovskiy About Winning Dancing With The Stars And Next Plans
Entertainment Weekly interviewed Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy about their run and win on Dancing With The Stars. Read below for how they are feeling on it all right now. Also note, that Rumer will be performing in Sway. See this tweet.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How do you feel after last night’s win?
RUMER WILLIS: I’m so ecstatic. I could not be happier.
What were your thoughts going into last night’s results show?
WILLIS: Honestly, I was just excited. I knew that the work that I had put in and we had one last dance to do, and I just wanted to make it something that I really enjoyed.
How does it feel to be the winner of season 20? It’s been a really special season.
WILLIS: So awesome. I couldn’t be happier that we won in general, but to win also on such a big season. This season they really pulled out all the stops with everything. I feel like everyone who was competing just really brought their A-game. I know it was tough. The dances that were happening and the freestyles that happened at the end were all so incredible, so to have it come down to us was pretty incredible.
Val, this was your first win. How has this season been different for you?
VAL CHMERKOVSKIY: Well, it’s my first win. So that’s already different. But it’s just been a great season. I feel like we approached everything really honestly, and I feel like everything came out genuine. I feel like that’s why people really got behind us and were able to relate to Rumer and her journey. It was great to be a part of that.
What will you miss most now that the season is over?
CHMERKOVSKIY: Performing together.
CHMERKOVSKIY: That’s the biggest thing. There’s so much stress that goes into actually creating the numbers and the rehearsals and the time crunch and preparing that you never really have a chance to appreciate what you’ve done. So I’m going to take a moment to realize what we just did and reflect on that. And then we’re probably going to start missing each other.
