Dancing With the Stars champs Val Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd dazzled the Disney Legends Awards crowd with a waltz to Sleeping Beauty's "Once Upon a Dream" at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, on Friday, but Chmerkovskiy told PEOPLE he is clear-eyed about the effusive praise heaped upon him days ago by his winning partner Rumer Willis.

Chmerkovskiy adds, "She's an incredible person, very humble and very talented and that's one of the reasons why we worked out so well is because I was very much inspired by her and her spirit and her energy, and I gave her my all. She obviously reciprocated that."
