Following two top-notch performances, it looks like William Levy could be headed to the Dancing with the Stars finale…
During Monday night’s semi-finals, the 31-year-old Cuban American actor demonstrated his ballroom dancing prowess by performing a sizzling samba and tantalizing tango that earned raves from the judges.
In the first round, Levy and his partner Cheryl Burke took to the floor to perform a high-octane tango to the Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams,” which received 28 points out of 30 from the judges.
“Powerful, firm, convincing, full of animal magnetism,” professed judge Bruno Tonioli. “No doubt who was on top on that. You were like the dictator of the tango!”
But it was Levy’s dance in the second round that could just seal his fate as a DWTS finalist…
Performing to Sergio Mendes’ Portuguese classic “Magalenha” and dressed in a hot pink button down and skin-tight white pants, Levy’s oh-so-marvelous moves had the audience clapping throughout, especially when he shook his bon bon to the delight of the women in the crowd.
“I’ve never looked at a man’s bum for so long in my life,” said judge Len Goodman as the crowd broke into laughter. “The hunk with his junk in the trunk. The rhythm that you brought out was just fantastic.”
“I’m going to die with bum envy,” said Tonioli unable to contain his excitement for Levy’s performance.
“You lived up to every expectation,” Carrie Ann Inaba cooed. “Amazing! Good job.”
Levy’s samba resulted in his second perfect score of the season, following his fantastic foxtrot last week.
When all was said and done, Levy found himself in second place behind television host Maria Menounos.
