TVE gave up the rights to air the show in 2009 due to financial problems, so in 2010 the show moved to Telecinco, where it premiered as ¡Mira quién baila! but was later renamed ¡Más que baile! due to copyright issues; the new name gave the possibility of using the same acronym ¡MQB!. This season was presented by Pilar Rubio.
Televisión Española reacquired the format in 2014 retaining its earlier title, ¡Mira quién baila! and the season was presented by Jaime Cantizano.
In 2018, Televisión Española announced a new adaptation of the original format with a different title, Bailando con las estrellas. This adaptation was intended to adopt the rules of the American adaptation, with each celebrity paired with a professional dance partner throughout the series, unlike in ¡Mira quién baila! where celebrities had a different partner each episode, and weekly eliminations. The show was co-produced by Gestmusic Endemol, like ¡Mira quién baila!.
