With bold new reality elements added to the third season of “¡Mira Quién Baila!,” the show’s millions of die-hard fans will now get an even closer look at all the celebrities as they prepare and perform. Hidden cameras have been placed in two strategic positions —at the entrance to the dance floor and in the hallway— to ensure that viewers don’t miss a single move, gesture, or word during each moment of the competition.
Additionally, a new, state-of-the-art sound system has been installed in the dance floor area this season to capture the contestants’ every breath, sigh, and comment while they perform. Will they curse, cry out or laugh? Will they be panting or breathing easily? Viewers at home will experience each performance as if they were right there, inches away from the dancers.
Hosted by Mexican television and radio personality Javier Poza and Venezuelan actress, model, entrepreneur and co-host of Univision’s morning show “Despierta América,” Chiquinquirá Delgado, “¡Mira Quién Baila!” is a co-production of Univision Studios and Endemol.
