John McClane has a sensitive side! Rumer Willis poked fun at her dad Bruce Willis' "emotional" face during Dancing With the Stars on Monday, Mar. 23. In her pre-taped package, she and partner Val Chmerkovskiy recalled the silly expression Bruce made when he attended the show's live premiere last week.

The actress, 26, and Chmerkovskiy, 29, danced the foxtrot to Hozier's "Take Me to Church" at the time. The Die Hard star (who turned 60 on Mar. 19) waited patiently for her to take the floor — but it was worth it! Rumer and Val got a score of 32 and placed No. 1 on the leader board. After the performance, Bruce was caught with a stone-cold reaction, despite tears welling up in his eyes. He sat near ex-wife (and Rumer's mom) Demi Moore, their daughters Scout, 23, and Tallulah, 21, and Bruce's second wife Emma Heming.

"I felt so beautiful and graceful and I'm such a weirdo. To be able to see myself like that is really cool," Rumer recalled of the performance on Monday, Mar. 24. Chmerkovskiy, however, had other things on his mind. "Seeing your Pops in the audience really made me nervous," he said. "Did you see that? His emotional face?"

Rumer laughed, and said: "Oh, daddio!"

The singer's famous parents weren't in attendance this week, but their eldest daughter still brought down the house. Her cha-cha routine to Adele's "Rumor Has It" landed her another 32 score and a huge applause. Afterward, the pair joked with co-host Erin Andrews about how Bruce must be celebrating at home. The trio turned to the camera and imitated the star's blank stare. (Heming also posted an Instagram pic of Bruce holding up a sign for fans to vote for his little girl.)

Rumer isn't showing any signs of slowing down. In fact, she doesn't seem nervous at all about the competition.

"I don't feel we have a lot of competition. I'm really confident," she told Good Morning America after the season 20 premiere. "I think that the heart that both of us have and will put into each dance, regardless of the scores — to me, at least — was most important."

Wish we could be there but we are watching and obviously voting! #TeamValenRue #DWTS @iamvalc

"I have high standards for myself, which I think is great but, you know, I think, sometimes they can block you from reaching a higher potential," she continued. "But I think it’s always good to strive to be better."

Chmerkovskiy chimed in: "She's very talented. She's got great genes. She works very hard."
