After nailing his Vietnamese waltz for the classical-themed week, William levy stepped in as team captain for a group dance Monday evening on Dancing With the Stars.
Naming themselves "Team Paso" after their dance routine, Levy’s group destroyed “Team Tango”on the dancefloor with a passionate number that sizzled from beginning to end.
Levy’s trio included NFL’s Super Bowl-winning football player Donald Driver and his partner Peta Murgatroyd, as well as Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
Backstage, Levy joked that his team had “the men of the men” since Levy, Driver and Chmerkovskiy are in extremely great shape. While performing, the three men unapologetically took their shirts off, leaving the audience in uproar.
“The boys, you guys are superheroes,” said judge Bruno Tonioli.
Fellow judges Carrie Ann Inaba and Len Goodman agreed that “Team Paso” had a better dance than “Team Tango.”
“That was so much fun,” said Inaba. “The passion, the intensity. It was ridiculous to watch.”
“It’s going to go down in history as a fan favorite,” Inaba added.
Goodman -- one of the hardest judges to please -- was all smiles.
“You undressed to impress,” Goodman said. “Cool in the execution. Great job!”
Aside from their muscles and sex appeal, for Levy it was all about team work, and getting back positive feedback on their dancing technique and dynamic as a group.
“I don’t want this to look like we are showing off,” Levy said. “I want this to look like we’re dancing.”
“I’m a team player,” he added. “Whatever the team wants we do it.”
Dance pro Max Chmerkovskiy thought Levy’s team had more of a leg up than “Team Tango.”
“We have three people in our team and I think it’s an advantage,” Chmerkovskiy said. “The more people we have, the messier it gets,” he said seeing that “Team Tango” had four couples in their teams.
“Team Paso” scored a 26 (out of 30) points, which also will be added to the couples' individual scores.
