When Dancing with the Stars 2012 resumes on April 23, fans should have their fire extinguishers handy. Telenovela star William Levy and pro partner Cheryl Burke will ignite the ballroom with one of the reality show’s sexiest dance styles: the slow, sultry Rumba.
Cheryl spilled the dance order beans via her Twitter account Sunday, and asked fans to be sure to vote. But the votes will surely come, regardless of her pleas. Although they’ve caught flack in the past for declining dance quality, their week 5 Argentine Tango left the judgesÂ—and much of AmericaÂ—panting, and landed them at the top of the leaderboard along with Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas. Positive forward momentum paired with a sexy soap star and a super sexy dance style almost certainly add up to great scores.
But that’s not where the good news ends for William and Cheryl. Although they’d never admit it, DWTS producers must expect a steamy and stellar routine from the pair, because they’ve assigned them the final individual dance spot of the evening. The coveted time slot is typically reserved for the most talented, most crowd-pleasing acts, and the scores doled out are often sky-high. The April 23 show will mark the pair’s second time performing the swan song.
To see how William Levy (man)handles the Rumba and the Motown week marathon dance, tune in to Dancing with the Stars 2012 week 6 tomorrow at 8 p.m. on ABC.
