'Dancing with the Stars': Who Are the Early Favorites?

Katherine Jenkins and William Levy not only score high in looks, but they are entering Week 2 as the ones to beat

Two weeks in, here's what we know about Dancing with the Stars, season 14. It may be lacking in star power, but it's strong on skill. The premiere show was the highest scored first episode ever. And while the second week's scores (for dancing the jive and quickstep) weren't as record-breaking, three of the couples continue to dominate the dance floor. Here are the early frontrunners:

Katherine Jenkins (partnered with Mark Ballas): Her high scores have put this gorgeous opera singer at the top of the leaderboard. Her bright smile and cute Welsh accent are working for her, too. After she danced the jive this week, Bruno Tonioli exclaimed, "Talk about sexy, and I know it!" Total score so far: 52

Watch her Week 2 performance here: 


William Levy (partnered with Cheryl Burke): Tonioli calls this Cuban soap star "the hottest package of the season." The studio audience certainly agrees, whooping it up with catcalls and whistles the moment Levy appears. "I've never seen anything like it before," says Carrie Ann Inaba. "You're like the Harry Connick Jr. of the ballroom!" Oh yeah, and he can dance, too. So far, he's tied for second place on the leaderboard. Total score so far: 49

Watch his Week 2 performance here:


Roshon Fegen (partnered with Chelsie Hightower): The Disney Channel star has a "cheeky swagger" that the judges love—and which Tonioli calls "absolutely delicious." Total score so far: 49

Of course, every season also features celebs who discover just how hard this televised booty-shaking is. In that category this time? Melissa Gilbert. The Little House on the Prairie star, who is paired with the hard-driving Maksim Chmerkovskiy, told People that "childbirth is easier." So far, her total score is 40.

And though tennis great Martina Navratilova, who's paired with Tony Dovolani, has clearly worked hard to appear graceful, she's found herself at the bottom of the leaderboard, with 37 points. And that's left her vulnerable to painful puns from the judges. "I think that serve went into the net," remarked Tonioli. For Navratilova, the game may be over.
