Muy caliente!!!! Our Willy did it again. Despite torn ligaments in his ankle, Cuban sexpot and People magazine’s Man of the Moment William Levy sashayed across the Dancing With the Stars stage during Latin Week 5… the season’s halfway point… on Monday, April 16… with a dripping hot Tango—scoring a near perfect score of 29 out of 30. The judges’ reaction was near manic…
Carrie Ann: “Whew… I’m gathering myself… That was ridiculously amazing. You are so convincing. All I could think of was ‘The Latin dancing James Bond is in the house!’”
Len: “I saw mood, I saw passion, I saw sensuality and color. Well done.”
Bruno: “Pulssssssating passion, thrrrrrrobbing intensity. Slick, sexy, coooolicious!”
The only other couple to score as high was my nemesis, irritating Barbie doll Katherine Jenkins and partner Mark Ballas, who also came in with 29/30. She continues to be Will’s primary competition… like a gnat you keep swatting out that just won’t go away.
The low score for the night went to beanie-wearing Gavin DeGraw & Karina Smirnoff, with 19. Next down-to-the-ground were Melissa Gilbert & Maksim Chmerkovskiy, with 21/30. Gladys Knight also continues to score in the lower tier, and seems in danger of being ousted.
Tonight, Tuesday, April 17, the bottom two pairs will perform a dance-off before the judges decided which one will be eliminated. Pack your bags, Gavin, baby!
The show went on for Levy despite an MRI that showed torn ligaments after he injured his ankle Sunday night and doctor’s insistence that he take time off to heal. Will said after the triumphant performance: “He said my ligament was ripped up. You need to rest. But, I said to him that tonight was no resting.” Going by the orgasmic screams from the audience, we were all relieved.
