For the first week on “Dancing With the Stars,” nearly everybody brought their A-game, including William Levy, a telenovela actor partnering pro Cheryl Burke. They drew the cha-cha and … yes, it was muy caliente.

Bruno was fanning himself, saying, “The hottest package of the season! … William, you’re overdressed” and Carrie Ann added, “I would like to thank ABC for my job.” She also praised his partnering skills and his staying in the spirit of the cha-cha-cha. Len said, “You performed it right on the edge, but you kept control, which is a hard thing to do. Good for you.”

The judges gave William straight 8-votes for a total of 24. Do you think this relative unknown has burst his way into America’s hearts with that cha-cha?
