Telenovela heartthrob William Levy turned in an electrifying performance that should put to rest his fear of being the only Latino to get the boot during Latin Week on “Dancing With the Stars.”

Levy netted 29 out of 30 points for his seductive Argentine tango, the same dance performed by Monday’s three top scorers. Katherine Jenkins tied Levy with her dance that judge Carrie Ann Inaba described as “poetry in motion.” Donald Driver’s tango full of powerful lifts got him a 27.

The bottom two couples will face off Tuesday in the competition’s first dance duel, when the judges get to save their favorite performer.

Low scoring Gavin DeGraw is a virtual shoo-in to have to hit the ballroom’s dance floor in hopes of a save. There’s a good chance the recently injured Melissa Gilbert, who scored a 21, will be joining him.
