” (Look Whos Dancing!) Sunday night on Univision . The evening started with the prince of bachata, Prince Royce, singing his latest bachata release “Darte Un Beso”. Royce was not the only one performing but also the competing celebrity dancers as well who sang for their fellow competitors. Johnny Lozada was joined by his fellow ex-Menudo group members to sing “Subete a mi Moto” for Maria Elisa Camargo’s rock and roll dance number. Yolandita Monge who was in the danger zone of elimination from last week’s episode danced to Manny Manuel’s own merengue hit song “Los Hombres No Deben Llorar” and Monge in return sang for Manny Manuel’s dance number “Demasiado Fuerte”. The second celebrity in danger of elimination Graciela Beltran danced samba to “Tu Boquita” sung by fellow competitor Malillany Marin who danced to a Mexican number to Beltran’s interpretation of “Quitate la Ropa”. It was Beltran who was the first celebrity eliminated keeping Monge safe with 82% of fan votes. Although the host announced that Monge wanted to leave the competition, she decided to stay for her fans but abandoned Univsions premises without an explanation before the reality show finished. Up for elimination next Sunday is Manny Manuel and Malillany Marin after the third chosen by the judges Maria Elisa Camargo was saved. But after Yolandita Monge’s final decision not to return to the competition, maybe no one will be eliminated. Monge wrote a letter and stated she will have a concert in Puerto Rico where all the funds will be donated to the charity she was representing – The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (Puerto Rico Chapter) .
