Six years ago one of the most controversial moments on television was experienced when three strong representatives of the pop genre confronted each other in a live reality show, all because the participants forgot part of the song they were performing, a situation that became recorded because the themes belonged to one of the renowned artists.
It all happened in the distant 2015, the year in which the reality show aired I stand up. The program consisted of a competition where the participants faced each other on stage with musical numbers. On that occasion, the production had the participation of Paty Cantú, Ha-Ash, Pee Wee, Río Roma, Noel Schajris and María León, all as team captains.
The jury panel featured three great personalities from the music industry: Ana Torroja, Cristian Castro and Espinoza Paz. On a special occasion I stand up It was invited by Belinda, who from the jury awarded extra points to the contestants who had the best performance during the gala.
This is how the program went on until it was the turn of the team member of the sisters Hanna and Ashley Pérez against one of María León. The singers positioned themselves in the center of the spectacular stage to sing “Beautiful betrayal”, A song that the Spanish interpreter launched in 2006.
Everything was going well until the contestants forgot the lyrics. When the number ended, the Ha-Ash and the former vocalist of Limbo Beach went up. The Pérez sisters justified the incident of their contestant by assuring that he did not listen to Belinda’s music and that is why he did not know the lyrics.
What they did not expect was that, the now fiancée of Christian Nodal, defended his professionalism by ensuring that it had all been a lack of respect and crossed his argument as something that a novice would say in the middle.
“Well, first of all, they didn’t know the lyrics. They changed all the lyrics of the song“Belinda began, which provoked nervous giggles from Cristian Castro, who was next to her, and from Ashley. “I don’t know how long they had to prepare them, but … they made him want to, I appreciate that very much, but I’m not going to give 25 points to anyone”.
Galilea Montijo, who appeared as the host of the reality show, reacted surprised at the decision that the actress of children’s soap operas had made. Hanna Pérez jumped in defense of the musical number while María León remained silent.
“Something that we also want to clarify is that this song was learned yesterday afternoon and not one of the two listens to Belinda’s music“, said. This comment outraged those present, as Ana Torroja, Noel Schajris and Espinoza Paz were stunned by what was happening.
“Forgive me, a professional person learns a song,” Belinda replied. “They’re not professionals yet,” Hanna replied. “Even if they don’t listen to my songs, if you put a song on me, I learn it out of respect for the artist, I don’t change the lyrics”, The Spanish interpreter continued forcefully, a comment with which she won a wave of applause from both her colleagues and the public.
While one of the contestants apologized to the guest judge, Hanna was adamant that they didn’t have enough time to rehearse it. “That is your job as a coach, teach them the lyrics of the song and they rehearse it until they learn it, ”added Belinda.
The discussion escalated to behind the scenes, where Nodal’s girlfriend reaffirmed her statement: “I offended me, It seems to me a lack of respect and more the answer that is like … it does not seem like a coach, it seems like someone who is a beginner and, according to me, they have been in this career a long time”, He commented.
