She’s a dancing machine!
Dayanara Torres won “Mira Quien Baila” (“Look Who’s Dancing”) Sunday night on Univision.
The former Miss Universe, 43, cha-cha’ed away with 51 percent of votes, and received $50,000 for her charity of choice, San Jorge Children’s Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the health and welfare of children in her native Puerto Rico.

Torres also received the “Premio a la Más Vista” (Most Viewed Award), a special recognition for having three of her dance videos register as the ‘most-watched’ online during this season of the dance reality competition, the Latin equivalent to “Dancing with the Stars.”
Finalists Ana Patricia Gámez, a co-host on “Despierta América,” and Olympic gymnast Danell Leyva both received $5,000 to donate to their respective charities.
A surprise of the night was when fellow gymnast Laurie Hernández — a onetime “Dancing with the Stars” winner — joined Leyva for a foxtrot tango number.
Another surprise guest was choreographer Casper Smart. Jennifer Lopez’s ex boyfriend sat in as a judge alongside veterans Poty Castillo and Johnny Lozada.
Not in attendance for the big win was Torres’ ex, Marc Anthony. The salsa singer has been supporting the mother of his two kids throughout her journey, and even sent a surprise video shot with their two sons Cristian, 16, and Ryan, 14, last month to support her. The two divorced in 2004.
Anthony had a show in Orlando. He played AmericanAirlines Arena on Friday night, a stop on his Full Circle tour.
