Coming Monday April 23, on Dancing with the Stars is Motown week. And for once the live entertainment is actually event-worthy. Performing Monday and/or Tuesday are original Motown acts Smokey Robinson, Temptations and Martha Reeves, as well as Boys II Men & Aussie boy band Human Nature (who have a sellout show in Las Vegas singing the same).
William Levy and partner Cheryl Burke will perform a slow, sensual Rumba. She says: "I need to teach him a little bit about Motown. He doesn't know much about it. He has a lot of soul, we've just got to bring it into Motown."
It has also been rumored that on this Tuesday's elimination show, two among the eight remaining couples will get the heave-ho! We're hearing that after the bottom three couples are revealed, the pair with the least amount of votes will get eliminated first. Then, the other two couples will face off—and the judges will decide which stays and which goes.
Meanwhile, Wetpaint.com posted a story late this week pondering the same thing we wonder: "Is William Levy going to shimmy away with the Dancing With the Stars Season 14 Mirror Ball trophy?"The piece reasons, "Women scream for him. Judge Bruno Tonioli drools over him. People Magazine put him on their cover. And he dances pretty well."
Meanwhile, Access Hollywood spoke with Season 13 contestant Chaz Bono, who also believes Will is the chosen one: "I think who could take it home is William. The women just love him."
Even pro dancer Maksim "Maks" Chmerkovskiy, who is competing this season with Melissa Gilbert (though their time is most certainly coming to an end) posted on his weekly TV Guide blog that Levy is a Season 14 frontrunner, along with (my nemesis) Katherine Jenkins, who continues to deliver dazzling scores alongside my William, despite her Barbie Doll demeanor. May the best man win! *
