Actor Levy ripped open his shirt as part of his steamy salsa routine with his professional dance partner, Cheryl Burke. The exposure turned out well and they earned a very impressive 28 out of 30 points.
Only Katherine Jenkins did better, dancing with Mark Ballas. She scored an almost perfect 29 out of 30 and it is difficult to remember that that this competition has barely started.
Levy discussed his great score with Us Weekly and admitted that he was nervous about performing the sensual dance.
“I don’t want people to have the feeling that I just want to show my body. I am here to dance and have fun, not about, ‘Oh, I’m hot and I’m in shape’,” Levy said.
He wants his time on the show to be about more than that. And Cheryl Burke backed him, in case you were thinking it was just false modesty and he was dying to strip off all the time. Apparently it “wasn’t easy” to convince Levy to take off his shirt on camera.
“It was a little bit of a battle, but he did it,” she said with a proud smile.
Dancing with the Stars continues tonight (April 3) at 9/8c on ABC when another contestant will be eliminated in the results show.
