Telenovela star William Levy and his professional dance partner Cheryl Burke have topped the leaderboard on last night’s performance episode of “Dancing With The Stars”. In the show’s eighth week, fans saw the top six finalists competing in a ballroom routine as well as a trio dance performance.
William and Cheryl first performed their Foxtrot to close out the show’s first round. William showed that he has really improved over this season of the show. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba commented, “Meow, meow, meow!” She also said that the dance was a “hot and sexy Pink Panther”, calling his movements “exquisite” and “fun to watch”.
Head judge Len Goodman said that there was care in his technique and flair in his movements. Judge Bruno Tonioli said that William is a “heartbreaker” and that he “couldn’t be more debonaire and suave if he tried”. For the first dance, they were awarded 30 points of a possible 30, marking the second time a star has received a perfect score this season.
To close out the show, William and Cheryl were joined by Tony Dovolani for their Paso Doble in a trio performance. Carrie Ann commented that the lines were incredible and that William learned something from Tony this week. Len said that he salutes them and that they did a fabulous job. Bruno added that the guys used Cheryl like a cape and added that they “lost sync” during the dance. For their efforts, they received 27 points out of 30.
Who are you rooting for on tonight’s show? It’s a double elimination tonight, so it’s anyone’s game. If we had to fathom a guess, we would say that Melissa Gilbert and Roshon Fegan would be in jeopardy. They’ve both improved throughout the show, but they may not have the same fan base as the other contestants. After tonight, we’ll have our top four couples heading into the Semi-Finals! Stay tuned!
