William Levy earns his first perfect score & FINALLY gets top spot on 'DWTS!' (VIDEO)
Go Team Fuego!! Our favorite Cuban actor and now pro dancer (well, almost!) William Levy and his partner Cheryl Burke totally killed it on the ballroom floor tonight, scoring their first perfect 30 of the season with their rendition of the foxtrot!! FINALLY!
Though Levy found the dance pretty challenging in rehearsals (there are "too many rules," he said), he and Burke won over both the judges and the audience with their playful and fun performance. And after getting way under-scored last week, the duo at last got all the 10's they --and all the Levy fans!--have been waiting for!

"That was like a super hot, sexy Pink Panther," said judge Carrie Ann Inaba of the performance. "Your movements were exquisite!" The typically conservative Len Goodman praised the dance's "mix of care and flare" while Bruno Tunioli called Levy a "heartbreaker."
For their second dance, teams were asked to pick a second pro partner and perform as a trio. Levy and Burke danced a super sexy and aggressive paso with Tony Donovan, once again drawing screams from the crowd.
The judges were equally enthusiastic, giving the team another 27 points and bringing their total score to 57, the highest score of the night!! "William, Tony, and you Cheryl, I salute you, I thought you did a fantastic job," said Goodman.
I'm just SO EXCITED that the judges finally gave Levy the scores he deserves!! It's perfect timing too because two couples will be going home in tomorrow night's elimination rounds. Not that Levy should be worried after tonight's stellar performances --he's at the top of the leaderboard now, right where he should be!
Watch his foxtrot:
