For the “Dancing With the Stars” contestants who tackled the Argentine tango, the risk paid off with high scores all around. William Levy, Katherine Jenkins and Donald Driver all got nearly perfect scores for their performances of the dance on “DWTS” Latin Night. Which one did you like the best?
Obviously Levy had a leg up since he’s Latino and this was Latin night, and his seductive dance with Cheryl Burke to the Pussycat Dolls’ “Buttons” turned out great. Levy wasn’t too scared beforehand, saying in his rehearsal interview that with the Argentine tango “you have to be more serious, more aggressive, more passionate — I don’t think it’s going to be a problem.” It certainly wasn’t. The strategically unbuttoned tuxedo shirt was a nice touch.
Regardless of whether Jenkins has had dance training or not, you can’t deny that her performance was amazing. And that’s after she kept accidentally kicking her partner, Mark Ballas, in his “naughty bits” during rehearsal. Plus, As Carrie Ann Inaba points out, she’s got the “best legs of any contestant.”
Inaba and Bruno Tonioli both gave William and Katherine 10s, while Len Goodman gave them 9s for a total of 29. Driver and partner Peta Murgatroyd didn’t get as rave of a review, but they did pretty well for themselves too, earning a score of 27 from the judges.
