The competition seriously heated up between the final four contesants on tonight's Dancing with the Stars! After being in the top spot last week,  Cuban stud William Levy and partner Cheryl Burke took on the tango for their first performance, earning an impressive 28 out of 30 from the judges. 

This season's semi-finals were closer than ever and the judges made sure to let the contestants know that they were being extra critical--but that didn't stop them from showering Levy with compliments!

"This is going to be the best semi-final ever," said judge Len Goodman after seeing the dance. "Overall, it was terrific." Bruno Tunioli agreed, calling him "the master of the house," and saying his performance was "smooth, powerful...[and] for me, it was ace."

Before his second performance, Levy shared some of his story with his audience in a clip taken during rehearsals.

"It was a difficult life but at the same time I think i grew up that way," he said of his life in Cuba. Levy's mom also appeared, speaking in Spanish of what it was like for her son to look across the ocean and see the US coast. Levy even credited his background for serving as his main motivation for winning this competition. 

Well if that's the case, it is definitely working! For their second dance, Levy and Burke performed an insanely sexy samba that brought down the house and earned them a perfect 30, giving them a total of 58 out of 60. The audience's applause was so loud, it almost drowned out the judge's comments! 

And they weren't the only ones left recovering--judge Carrie Ann Inaba actually had to stop and fan herself to recuperate from all of Levy's super sultry hip-shaking. "You like had me at hello," she said. "You lived up to every expectation."

Even the conservative Goodman had to admit that Levy's moves were amazing! "I've never watched a man's bum for so long," he said jokingly. 

Can't say I blame him-- I had a hard time tearing my eyes away myself! Now, I just hope those attention-grabbing moves will be enough to earn him a (well-deserved!) spot in next week's finals. Go Team Fuego!
