LOS ANGELES, May 12 (UPI) -- Rumer Willis may finally be getting a run for her money as Dancing With the Stars enters its final round.
The penultimate episode Monday night left the star in second place as Riker Lynch and Nastia Liukin tied for first.
Willis, 26, and partner Val Chmerkovskiy, performed a heated 50 Shades of Gray themed Viennese waltz to kick off the night. Judge Julianne Hough called her the "perfect Anastasia," and Bruno Tonioli couldn't stretch out the word "steamy" long enough.
In an interview segment during the show, Moore said her daughter looked like a "magical elf" when she was born, but cyberbullying as she got older took a toll on her self esteem.
"There really wasn't anything I could do to stop it," she said on Monday night's show. "Her self esteem was nothing. I could only just keep loving her and loving her until she could love herself."
"When she said to me I want to do Dancing With the Stars, my whole insides, I have to be honest, were screaming, 'No,'" she admitted. "But one of the most beautiful things I've witnessed is watching her passion become greater than her fear."
Willis' sister, Scout, also spoke out in support: "I've seen Rumer grow more since she's been on Dancing With the Stars than I have in maybe like the past four years. It's really really special that the world is falling in love with her."
The final episode of this season's Dancing With the Stars airs Monday, May 18 on ABC.
