By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 11/22/2016 

Val Chmerkovskiy will be competing in Dancing with the Stars' Season 23 finale.

Val, 30, and his celebrity partner, Olympic gymnast Laurie Hernandez, will be duking it out for the mirrorball trophy on Tuesday night's live finale episode after a season of hard work, cheers and tears.

The pro dancer joined DWTS in Season 13 and won the show's 20th season with actress Rumer Willis, a feat the uber-competitive pro had anxiously been waiting to accomplish.

Val, who stands six feet tall, is the little brother of Dancing with the Stars pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy. Want to learn more about this talented performer and choreographer?
