Updated at 10 p.m.:

Charlie White and his professional dance partner, Sharna Burgess, were in jeopardy heading into Monday night’s “Latin Night” competition on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.” 

After White and Burgess performed a Paso Doble, the only 10 came from guest judge Ricky Martin. “I was living in the moment,” he said. “I was flying with you guys.”

“What you need to do is get an ending in some of your movements,” said Carrie Ann Inaba, who gave the couple a nine.

Head judge Len Goodman got a boo when he said the dance “wasn’t special.” He gave them their lowest score, an eight.

Bruno Tonioli said the dance had “flair and artistry.”

“But you messed up,” he said, giving them an eight. “You put so much, you lost steadiness.”

White’s partner on the ice, Meryl Davis, and her professional dance partner Maks Chmerkovskiy wowed the judges again with their salsa. To no one's surprise, they're safe again.

“You blow me away,” Inaba said. “You were so in your element.”

“It gets better and better,” Martin said. “It was amazing.”

Goodman said the two got too involved with the production of it, and said it was “too full on.”

But Tonioli gushed: “Meryl, the leader of the band! She bangs! You were dancing in front of six of the best professionals and you held your own.”

They got 10s from everyone but Goodman, who gave them a nine, for a composite score of 39.

So who was voted off? 

"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Nene Leakes and professional dancer Tony Dovolani won't be returning next week.

White and Burgess are safe for another week.
