Based on the wild cheers inside the ballroom, Cheryl Burke and her injured partner William Levy gave viewers what they wanted on Monday night's Dancing with the Stars. But don't expect the pair to take things a step further with a mid-routine smooch like the one Derek Hough and partner Maria Menounos shared on the Latin-themed episode.
"We like to leave it up to the imagination," Burke, 27, told PEOPLE backstage after the performances, adding that she and Levy have no plans to kiss.
But unlike judge Carrie Ann Inaba, Levy, 31, and Burke don't worry about whether an actual lip-lock was too much for the dance.

A broken rib can't break Maria Menounos's spirit.
"It's all good," the injured Extra host, 33, told PEOPLE following her 25-point quickstep with partner Derek Hough Monday night.
Adds the pro, with a laugh: "So, basically, smooth sailing."
Her injury, which occurred after she ripped the intercostal muscles off her ribs during rehearsal a few weeks ago, is actually part of her strategy, she says.

Maria Menounos's dog has had it up to here with the new man in her mom's life.
"Mommy, how come you're always dancing with Derek Hough and you're never playing with me anymore?" says a weepy Menounos, in the voice of her pooch, Baby, in a new video she shared on her WhoSay page.
The Extra host, a contestant on the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars, has been training vigorously for next week's premiere and admits to "doggie neglect" in the video. But, as she laments, "It happens when you become a dancer."

Tim Tebow got on one knee in Indianapolis Saturday night – to "Tebow" with Maria Menounos in the VIP section of ESPN's Super Bowl party. It was a special treat for the Extra hostess, who Tebowed solo on the Golden Globes red carpet in January.
Nearby, Tom Cruise's son Connor and his posse held court at a table, while Spike Lee, bedecked in Giants gear, relaxed with his son; Shaquille O'Neal cuddled with pint-sized girlfriend Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander; and Drake warmed up for his set by handing out shots to women near the stage.

At the Audi Super Bowl cocktail party Saturday evening, Glee's Matthew Morrison and girlfriend Renee Puente celebrated with fellow Giants fan Aaron Paul and his new fiancée, Lauren Parsekian, before the spouses-to-be took in the view of Indianapolis's Lucas Oil Stadium from the balcony of the Conrad Hotel. Also enjoying the sight: Kellan Lutz, who gushed over the midwestern city's beauty.
Meanwhile, Neil Patrick Harris and partner David Burtka enjoyed a rare moment away from caring for their twins to talk football with partygoers, while Spike Lee couldn't hold back his excitement over bringing his son to his first Super Bowl to root for the hometown Giants. But by the time Patriots owner Robert Kraft popped in, he could claim to be in friendly territory, as Erin Andrews and Maria Menounos made it clear they were Pats gals. – Jessica Wedemeyer
