The name is Levy. William Levy.

After the Cuban telenovela hunk tweeted that he had hurt his ankle during rehearsals on Sunday, people started to wonder if William Levy's "Dancing With the Stars" stint was coming to an early end.

But last night was Latin Week on "Dancing With the Stars," and Levy --the only Latino celeb competing on season 14 -- had all the right moves (torn ligament and all) as he danced the Argentine Tango with partner Cheryl Burke.

"The Latin dancing James Bond is in the house!’” judge Carrie Ann Inaba said of Levy's smoldering and sexy performance. "I'm gathering myself," she added. "That was ridiculously amazing."

Levy finished the night with a near perfect score of 29 out of 30 points.

Heading into last night's show, no one expected Levy to have a great night on "DWTS." The Cuban actor hurt his ankle during rehearsals on Sunday April 14 and tweeted about his injury on Monday morning. "Just Wanted to let u know that I injured my right ankle pretty bad during rehearsal.. MRI tomorrow. I'll let u all know .. Love u all."

After his amazing performance on last night's show, DWTS Co-host Brooke Burke asked Levy about his hurt ankle and what the doctor said after giving him an MRI earlier in the day. “He said my ligament was ripped up…‘You need to rest.' "But, I said to him that tonight was no resting," Levy said.
