Today in Mira Quien Baila Fernando Arau was surprisingly nominated along with Maria Antonieta de Las Nieves for the second time.
Alicia Machado kicked off the night with an Adagio. She was accompanied by 10 dancers and looked completely lost. The judges thought she was not fluid in her movement and that she had no intimacy with her dancers. They also said that she was insecure and looked confused.

The next participant was Maripily who danced Samba. 10 dancers also accompanied her. The judges weren't thrilled with the choreography, as they did not feel it had anything to do with Samba. They said she was too stiff and her transitions were off. However the judges were proud of her security on dance floor.
Bobby Pulido then danced a tango. Bianca and Lily said he was consistent and that he had shown a great improvement. However Horacio Villalobos said that he was erratic and in the end did not like his dance.
Fernando Arrau was next with a cha cha cha. Arau was disappointing as he was slow and failed to show his usual flair. The judges did not like it and they said that he was stale and safe. They also said that it looked like seeing a normal couple dance at a wedding.
Next Maria Antonieta de Las Nieves danced a Waltz. The dancer carried her the whole way through and De Las Nieves was unable to move comfortably in the dress she had on. The judges said she was elegant but needed more evolution and more energy. Horacio said once again that she looked like a mother dancing at a wedding.
Maxi Iglesias danced a salsa. He showed a vast improvement from the past three dances. Lily said that he was not dancing salsa but liked his effort. Bianca said he was more confident and really liked it. Horacio also commended him on his evolution even though there were some issues with the dance.
Henry Santos danced a disco with lots of spunk. The judges were enthusiastic and stated that it was the best dance of the night. They also applauded him for setting the standard for the program.
Next was the elimination round. Argelia Atilano was saved and Sammy became the second eliminated participant. Because she was saved, Argelia danced a stiff bachata. However the judges thought she improved a lot and were surprised with the energy she showed on the dance floor.
After the 8 remaining participants danced, Maria Antonieta de las Nieves, Fernando Arau, and Alicia Machado were asked to dance again. De Las Nieves first danced a bachata in which the dancer once again carried her through the dance. The next dance was by Alicia Machado who danced a disco with very little passion and no spontaneity. Lastly, Fernando Arau danced a tango. However it seemed as if he was barely moving and just walking as his dancer did all the choreography. In the end Alicia Machado was saved and Arau and de Las Nieves were nominated. To find out who gets saved watch next week on Sunday on Univision at 8pm.
