Monday night capped off another set of stellar performances in "Dancing With the Stars" raising the stakes for Cheryl Burke and partner William Levy.
Fortunately for them, Team Fuego's sizzling salsa to legendary Cuban performer Celia Cruz' "La Vida es un Carnaval," (translated to "Life is a Carnaval") got them the second highest judges' scores of the evening—a 28—one vote shy of the waltz by Team Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas.
And while not the top spot, they continue to climb. Here's some of the reactions in the Twitterverse:
- @kay_taguiling@DancingABC cheering for hot @willylevy29 and sexy @CherylBurke#teamFuego :)
- @miszerika07 William Levy ♥ Me encanta como baila cada semana pero este fue mi favorito baile #TeamFuego#DWTSyoutu.be/cMVmBHZuYn4

Tonight's the results show. Did you vote? Here's a plea from Burke, sent via her 's newsletter:
Dear fans, family and friends,
During the first show, William impressed the judges with his rhythmic Cha Cha. Next he performed the Quickstep, demonstrating his impressive, disciplined skill with one of the most demanding ballroom dance styles.
This week he showed his commitment to training with another Latin Dance, one of my favorite styles - and certainly one of his as well - Salsa!
The competition remains at an unprecedented high level. We may be doing well, but we are not taking anything for granted. Please do not forget to vote for us.
And while the voting is closed for now, next week follow these steps if you want to keep the Menlo-Atherton High School grad in the competition!
P.S. To vote for William and me, call 800-868-3408 or log on to www.abc.com. You are allowed to vote multiple times equal to the number of celebrities on the show. Phone lines, text votes (AT&T customers only) and online polls will open at the top of each performance show.
Phone and text lines will stay open for 30 minutes after the end of the show. Online voting will remain open until 11:00 a.m. (Eastern Time) and 8:00 a.m. (Pacific Time) on the day of the results show. Please follow me on twitter at http://twitter.com/CherylBurke and William Levy at http://twitter.com/willylevy29.
Details about how and when to vote are included on the DWTS FAQ link about voting.
