Cuban stud William Levy shows off his graceful side on Dancing with the Stars (VIDEO)
On last week's premiere of Dancing with the Stars, William Levy heated up the floor with his sizzling, hip-shaking cha-cha. But for his second dance, the Latino stud revealed a softer, more graceful side.
Levy once again sent hearts aflutter with his upbeat moves and killer good looks. Dancing to cheerful tune, "Nice Work if You Can Get It," he and partner Cheryl Burke performed a charming, fast-paced quickstep, earning a place in the top 5 couples with a final score of 25 out of 30.
The telenovela hearthrob originally struggled with the dance in rehearsals, saying "tonight's going to be a big test for me because there's no Latin flavor in the moves here." We can't argue with that -- he's definitely at his best when he can wiggle those hips!
But though Levy failed to win over traditional judge Len Goodman, he still managed to bring the audience to the feet and charm the other two juges. In fact, Carrie Ann Inaba called him the Harry Connick Jr. of the ballroom," comparing him to the famed American singer, big band leader, and Broadway man.
Hopefully, his relatively high scores and winning smile will be more than enough to carry him far into the competition! And for those who need a little more motivation to vote, the duo even promised that the better they did, the less clothed Levy will be in his performances. Hey, that's reason enough for me!
Other highlights of the episode included football player Donald Driver hilariously attempting a split during rehearsals and later earning a middle spot during his live performance with a score of 24. Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas also fared well with their jive, scoring a 26 out of 30 and tying with Disney teen Roshon and Chelsie Hightower.
