William Levy Breaks A Sweat To Shakira's 'Objection' On 'Dancing With The Stars' (VIDEO)

The Huffington Post  |  By Posted: Updated: 05/22/2012 1:33 pm

William Levy is hot. Shakira is hot. And when you put the two of them together on “Dancing With the Stars,” they’re pure fuego!

OK, so Shaki didn’t actually perform with the Cuban heartthrob on last night’s “Dancing With the Stars” finals, but William and his partner Cheryl Burke did perform one of her songs, “Objection," for their sexy cha-cha-cha.

The sexy performance, which featured William how we like him best (with his shirt wide open), is hands down Levy’s sexiest performance of the entire season. There was plenty of bumping and grinding, hip shaking, and pelvis thrusting action, and the body contact between Levy and Burke was insane.

But despite how hot the performance was, judge Len Goodman didn’t care for it, and called it “predictable."

“I liked it. I liked the lifts, I liked the changes of rhythm from tango into salsa, but for me, it was too predictable," he said. "All you do is shake your butt and get the women screaming. I didn’t want a salsa with lifts," he added.

Ouch!

After last night’s show, the usually reserved Levy fired back at Len for his criticism, telling People.com he wouldn’t change a thing a{about the performance} if he had to do the dance all over again.

"It [was] the freestyle," Levy said. "It's free. We can do whatever we want. It wasn't supposed to be something that Len was looking for. You don't have to do whatever he says. We picked samba, who cares?"

Levy also told Access Hollywood he stands by the performance.

“I feel this was an amazing dance, and [an] amazing routine,” he said. “I think it was a really good freestyle routine. It’s freestyle and we had a lot going on… lifting here, lifting there, dancing over here, moving over there. That’s what it’s all about, you know?”

As for whether he wins or loses tonight, Levy says he gave it his all last night. “We gave it our all… I mean, whatever happens, it’s gonna be good because I know we gave it [our] all,” he told Access Hollywood. “We got 59 out of 60, and right now, it’s up to the fans. I’m pretty amazed [by] what we did. We did a good freestyle, we did a good cha cha and I don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow, but I feel like a winner right now," he said.
