At this point on Dancing with the Stars, the question is who will be voted off during the semifinals and who will go on to win the coveted mirror ball trophy next week?
While only four ballroom couples were left to duke it out last night on DWTS, the competition was definitely fierce. Some power rankings may suggest that Donald Driver would be at the bottom of the heap at this point on the TV talent show but he's not, partially after making a strong case for going all the way to the win with his beautiful waltz (see review here).
Meanwhile, frontrunner Katherine Jenkins, the darling of this year's DWTS--and well deserved because this is one beautiful artist who puts her all into each number--had a bad evening. Not only did she end up at the bottom of the leaderboard (which was a shocker), but she also was injured while doing her second number of the evening (see review here).
That leaves two more DWTS couples who had to prove their mettle. Maria Menounos was at the top of her game, and ended up at the top of the leaderboard with nearly a perfect score for the evening while hunky William Levy was just behind her.
His first dance of the night was a showstopper as he and Cheryl Burke were the first couple to dance on the semifinals.
Their tango was a tough routine for William to conquer because of all the elements that make up this sexy dance. But, by the time he came out to a crowd of cheering (as usual), he had learned Cheryl's choreography well.
The number, done to the song Sweet Dreams by the Eurythmics, had a futuristic feel and was a sight to behold even though the judges got nitpicky with this particular couple who led off the evening during the Dancing with the Stars semifinals.
Although Len Goodman thought this tango was "terrific," he did mention he would have liked to see a "slightly tighter hold" and "slightly crisper movement."
Carrie Ann Inaba also got all technical on this power couple, saying that some of Williams' chaÃ®nÃ©s (turns) were a bit "out of control."
But Bruno Tonioli wasn't about to criticize in a negative way for the way Levy danced, perhaps because he has a crush on the Cuban-born actor. Whether or not that is true, this expert Italian called this particular turn on the ballroom floor by the gorgeous man and his faithful mentor not only "firm" and "convincing" but also full of "animal magnetism."
Take a look here at the first dance from William Levy here, think about all the other dances of the evening and please weigh in: Who do you think will be voted off Dancing with the Stars 2012 on May 15 for this season's semifinals? Do you think this is going to be a tight race that will produce a shocker in the evening ahead on DWTS? Your opinion matters.
