Rock Week on Dancing with the Stars was full of twists--from shaky performances to the surprise elimination that sent Sherri Shepard home, even though she wasn't the lowest scorer! So what does this mean for all the other contestants? They should all be nervous going into the next few elimination rounds!

That is, except for our favorite Cuban stud, William Levy. Though his dance was a little rocky this past week, we won't be seeing him head home any time soon. In fact, there are plenty of reasons why we think he'll make it all the way to the finals! Here's why DWTS fans should expect to see Levy battling out for that final Mirror Ball trophy:

1. The audience loves him. No really. Do you hear that roar from the crowd when he walks onto the floor? It's loud - like really, super, insanely loud. Even host Tom Bergeron jokes about it, often telling the viewers at home to cover their ears! And Levy's partner Cheryl Burke just told PEOPLE magazine that she couldn't believe the reaction. "I have never heard it that loud in there," she said. "He's like a rock star!"

2. He has a hardcore fan base across cultures. Those who have followed him from his telenovela days are supporting him more than ever now that he has embarked on his dancing ventures. But, he has also gained millions of admirers (mostly female for obvious reasons) outside of the Latino community now that he has crossed over into mainstream media.  Case in point: he's on the cover of this week's issue of PEOPLE, with a caption that calls him the "hottest man on TV!!" With all that love, how can he possibly lose?!

3. He's a favorite among the judges. Seriously, Carrie Ann, Len, and especially Bruno are like putty in his strong, muscular hands! So even if it does come to the unthinkable and Levy does somehow end up in the bottom 2 couples, it's likely that they'll save him with the new "Dance Duel" feature that they'll be introducing next week.

4. That smile. Have you seen that smile? Combined with that face and those twelve-pack abs (which have started making an appearance during his shirtless dances) and it's impossible for anyone to resist.

5. He's relatable. Underneath all those ridiculously good looks, there's a funny, loveable guy who is still clearly clueless when it comes to American pop culture references. One hilarious example? He got to meet members of KISS as part of the show's rock theme this week and he had no idea who they were! "I was like, who are these ugly guys?" he said. And he also had never before heard the track he jived to Twisted Sisters' "We're Not Gonna Take It" since he says he barely listens to American music. Aw, how can you not empathize? 

Do you think William Levy will make it to the DWTS finals?

His comment about" these ugly guys' was not directed at Kiss. Another metal group was brought in to teach Levy about rock-a younger group-and it was they the comment was made to.

OF COURSE HE WILL BE MAKE TO THE DWTS FINALS, WHY NOT!! HE GOT EVERYTHING TO BE THERE N  TO WIN, ALSO HE HAVE A WONDERFUL PARTNER, CHERYL BURKE N SHE IS THE BEST, SO NEED TO WORK  HES ASS OFF FOR NEXT WEEK, I ALL MY VOTESS ARE FOR THEM THEY DESERVE TO WIN

I love the optimism! But to be realistic, I think William and Cheryl have to dance clean for the next three weeks to get past the dreaded "dance offs" why? because I believe that was designed for people like Rochon who has a small fanbase. Case in point: if William ends up in a dance off against Rochon, the judges will pick Rochon. So he has to stay out of the bottom 2 that means enough scores combined with the vote. This week was great, William scored low, but was able to get over 4 points (Rochon's score) and not be in the bottom. Fans can't get complacent.

And I am pretty sure he said these who are these ugly girls :)
