chiquis+riveraTwo videos of Chiquis Rivera peforming Selena Quintanilla have hit the net…and we’ve got our review.

First, we have to disagree with the haters.

Sure, her performance (and look) of “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” isn’t strong and musically it all seems off. The song is iconic Selena and it’s very difficult to replicate it.

“Si Una Vez” is where we give Chiquis props. She made it her own style and didn’t try to copy Selena. She could have easily fallen in the trap of wanting to be Selena, but she didn’t. She was simply Chiquis performing a Selena song. Never does she say she is the new Selena or pretend to take over her legacy.

Look, Selena will forever be in our hearts and die-hard fans are protective of her songs and image. Chiquis was given an extremely difficult task of taking on her music and appealing to a mass audience.

Check out the performances yourself and let us know what you think!
