dancing with the starsIf Dancing With the Stars has taught us anything from the previous week it's that this competition is anybody's game. And while that's exciting to watch, let alone be a part of, it also means that everyone is at risk of going home.

So for Latin Night, the couples kicked things up a notch and got muy caliente out on the dance floor. If their confidence levels were shaken from their overall dip in scores (and spike in injuries), you wouldn't know it; based on this steamy round of performances, which consisted of either the Salsa, Argentine Tango, or the Samba, these guys were ready to get down and dirty with their sexy selves.

To make this night even a little spicier, the show higher-ups added a twist to April 17's results show. The couples who receive the two lowest scores of the week will go head-to-head in front of the judges in a dance duel — and it will be the judges who will make the final decision as to who goes home. Since this amazing group of contestants appear to be back and better than ever, it's going to be a very hard decision to make.

Check out the scores below (from highest to lowest) and see if you agree with the scoreboard this week:
