Selena Gomez Covers Selena Quintanilla

Selena Gomez Covers Selena Quintanilla

Selena Gomez gets into the groove as she belts out “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom,” one of Selena Quintanilla‘s biggest hits during her concert on Sunday night (February 7) at the San Antonio Rodeo.

The 17-year-old actress, wearing an Armani Exchange black sequined vest, who was named after the slain Latina popstar has once said, “My dad and family loved her. So when my mother got pregnant with me, he wanted to name me Selena, after her. As I got older and could understand why I was named after her, I went to go visit her grave and where she used to perform.”

And yes, Selena‘s rumored boyfriend Nick Jonas was in the audience supporting her. Check out the vid below!

    Terrible. What a disgrace to Selena Quintanilla, the original and only Selena.

  • omar galicia

    i thinks she did amazing :) on this cover : )

    Didn’t she just tell kiis that she is only good friends with Nick Jonas, and hung out with people who were “familiar”. Thought JJJ would be ahead of that!

    She’s a good singer!

  • ace

    She did it justice, never knew she could sing Spanish

  • s.r.j

    her version was lovely and lively. She has come a long way from her first performance. She will be better with time.

  • Lu

    Was that Nick in the red? I couldn’t tell.

    @anon: I actually think she did a pretty good job. Yeah, the part where she spoke Spanish was way better than when she sang it, but remember that Selena Quintanilla’s Spanish wasn’t that great at first either. I’m sure Sel’s going to keep working on it and undoubtedly get better.

    The only thing I felt was missing was the more cumbia type dancing that Selena used to do during this song, like in Baila Esta Cumbia. It takes some of the fun out of it. Otherwise I loved it. =]

  • omar galicia

    @anon: to you mr..she did not do terrible!!! she was decent :) it was a good cover :)

  • megan

    Is horrible, she cannot sing

    What she says in the song? I do not understand nothing and I live in Spain and I speak Spanish

    sorry, is the truth

  • omar galicia

  • penny

    she’s really pretty but she can’t sing very well. just average

  • Carla

    All that i can say is that i didnt like it. Selena Quintanilla sang way better. Anyway im glad she remembers Quintanilla :) xx

  • dayanne

    I loved so much Selena Quintanilla, she was really awesome.. so please Selena Gomez, keep away from her songs… you sing horrible.. in english and spanish..

    demi es mejor

  • miley

    Sad….
    I know she’s busy milking every dollar out of her Disney presence but you’d think she could make time for voice lessons…..and the presentation….Selena Q would be horrified by the comparism. Dance lessons clearly didn’t help much in Cinderalla Story so I don’t think there’s much hope here.

    I like Selena. She’s a decent actress, but how about doing one thing well and don’t just milk it – it’s so tacky but seems to be the Disney trend (jenette a country singer???, emily a rocker??ha ha). Enough! No wonder Disney has lost so much ground to Nick. Nick may have it right with two great singers on the new Victorious – Liz & Ariana. It’s about time.

  • Reba

    As Simon would say: ‘really bad karaoke’.

  • Tiffany

    I love that she is singing Spanish. Her hair is always so shiny and pretty. Get all of Selena’s clothes here http://outfitidentifier.com/?cat=916

  • amanda

    goshhh i love her…. her spanish is so cute!!!! sel definitely is the best….

  • amanda

    yayyy good job baby!!!!! she looks so stunning!!!

  • nathalia

    love selena!!

  • dina

    nick is not her boyfriend period he is just her good friend! she conifired that her and nick are just good friends! they are not dating!

  • chris

    Don’t really care for Selena’s song but she looked good and it was so cute of Nick to go see her show. And @Marc (#2), what she told Kiss was that she didn’t have to answer that question. That he already knew the answer.

  • jbr

    hahaha right because she would tell the world that they r dating ? of course not , seriously , they r trying to keep it private this time .. nick said so himself !

    btw sel loos AMAZING as always ! she only gets better !

  • http://southafricancatholic.blogspot.com Marc Aupiais

    In a later interview, she said only friends!

  • laragilua

    OMG!!! IT’S NICK JONAS!!!

  • amanda

    it´s so obvious that the are dating…. c´mon people nelena rocks!!!

  • jessrei07

    she did GOOD! her dancing is really cute.^^ but of course nobody can compare to selena quintanilla..
    @anon pls take your bitterness somewhere else..she’s just a 17 y.o. girl. and she’s just giving tribute to selena q. nothing wrong with it.

  • dayanne

    what happens justjared? why you don’t post my comment… oh yeah!, because i said selena sings horrible?.. i didn’t know that here was censured to have an opposite opinion…

  • lucia

    she did amazing
    I live in Peru so I speak spanish and I understand every single word that she said
    she did great job
    she is really sweet and she is a great singer
    :))

  • Honestly

    I really don’t know how I feel about this growing up selena q. was one of my heros but not just to me but to all kinds of people young and old. Although I was young I still remener the day she died myself and my family were all in tears and I remember crying myself to sleep that night. I know she is just trying to be respectful but I really feel uncomfortable hearing another person singing selena’s songs.

  • sul

    I dnt think that they are dating….

  • MIa

    I like her, but she is not that good of a singer. But she is getting a little better so that’s positive :) and she is so gorgeous!

  • BIBI

    Awwww~ love him being supportive to selena…
    <3 Cute Couple tho..the next zan?????? But Zan will be my first fav couple tho :)

  • Jemline

    I’m spanish and for her who really never speaks spanish,it’s pretty good

  • teo

    I love you Selena!!! I speak Spanish and I CAN tell that SHE DID A GREAT JOB.

    She was sick the whole week… But anyway she sounds Very Good :)

  • jbfan14

    i think what ever goes down between them 2 i will support nelena defintely

  • bebe

    WOW she needs to stop singing for the sake of her career stick to acting! SHes good at that

  • jonaslove

    I really really like Selena but the girl can’t sing, but I really liked her dress, she is just too girly and sweet and very cute and she seems genuinely nice which is rare. And I’m extremely happy that Nick went to her concert I hope they are dating cause I love them together and I’m starting to get addicted to their news as a couple, which is pretty weird since I was a 100% Niley fan, but I guess if Selena makes Nick happy I’m their ultimate fan.

  • lulu

    I’m sorry but she’s crap. This is so disrespectful to Selena Quintanilla. She thinks she’s the next Latina Queen. Hmmm… no! Selena Q will always remain there, with JLo and Jessica Alba behind her! And I swear if she does that stupid arm thing again I’m gunna hit the roof. She always puts her arms up! What does Nick even see in her? Used to like her and I thought she was pretty, but now she just thinks she’s the next big thing. Sorry for being mean but this is how I feel!

  • Aylin

    She’s not a good singer. She should stick to acting.

  • fn

    , selena and nick are dating , on one of the video’s , of papparazzi told nick hey you guys make a good couple ” , he said’ thankyou, & then he tryed to grab her hand,

  • kayleigh

    @lulu: when did she ever say she wanted to be the queen Latinos look up to her and how is this disrespectful, you sound like a complete idiot it sounds like your jealous ’cause she is friends with nick get over yourself and get a life. i thought she did pretty good she’s getting better and if she wants to sing let her sing you can’t tell her how to run her life just ’cause you don’t like her singing doesn’t mean everything else doesn’t some people who aren’t even selena fans know the song naturally, music ain’t just about the vocals you know i am a hard core music i like anybody if your lyrics are good than i will listen that’s what it’s about to me the music not the vocals but that’s just me.

  • jasmine Lim

    LOL! right behind Nick is Selena’s cousin whom you always see in her videos!

    clear the rumours…..

    its not confirmed if they were going out and they are both definetely avoiding the question.
    in the past Selena would just say NO when asked abt Nick, but now….
    who knows? he seems to have become a better person not that i know him, but if Selena likes him or not or he likes her, we’ll find out soon enough.
    but RIGHT NOW… they are just following each other around everywhere as friends…

    If Selena wants to SING, let her sing. If she wants to ACT, let her act.
    If she wants to DANCE, let her dance…..

    If she wants to HAVE FUN, let her enjoy her LIFE !!!! :)

    Obviously she is SUCCESSFUL for her FANS and dont for YOURS.

    STOP watching her videos if you dont like her. :)
