Hollywood royalty Demi Moore will not miss her daughter’s Dancing with the Stars debut, even if it means being in the same room with ex-husband Bruce Willis. The ex-power couple sat two rows apart while watching their baby girl give the performance of her life.
Rumer Willis, Moore's and Willis’ 26-year-old, could not have been happier. The actress seemed to feel as elated as a child having both parents applauding her performance in a school play, which kind of happened during her first night on the hit TV show. Both Moore and Willis were seen very supportive and proud of their daughter as she wowed the audience with her surprisingly good dance moves.

"To be honest, I sometimes just like to surprise them and I like to be able to not necessarily ask them anything and just let them come and see me do my thing," Rumer said when asked if she asked for dancing tips from her parents. "They were so unbelievable supportive, which was incredible."
DWTS judges could not stop raving about Rumer’s performance and gave her the highest score of the night. In a quick interview with Fox411 after the show, Rumer says she is “kind of on cloud nine.”
Rumer performed with professional partner Valentin Chmerkovskiy, who said he wanted the best for the actress. The professional dance coach can only sing praises about Moore’s and Willis’ daughter. He said that his partner, although suffering from some “mental soreness” after the show, was hardworking throughout their training.
“She’s such a trooper. I’m such a tough coach sometimes, she’s just awesome,” he said. "This is just the beginning. This was us still just holding back and being modest," Val says of their opening night costume. Rumer wore a sashaying beaded dress with a plunging neckline. "We're going to have some sparkles (for the next performance)!"
