Jackie Cruz performs Selena’s “Como La Flor,” and yes, we’re crying

Honestly, is there ever a time when we’re not crying over Selena? Whether we’re watching her biopic or listening to “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom,” we feel her spirit with us. And that’s why, when Jackie Cruz performed “Como La Flor” with Los Dinos, we were pretty teary eyed. The Orange is the New Black star performed Selena Quintanilla’s hit song at the Fiesta de la Flor festival in Corpus Christi, Texas. The two day event celebrated everything Selena, and we’re glad that Jackie was able to be a part of it.


Jackie was seen grooving and singing her heart out, moving her hips and dancing in a way that we know would make Selena proud. The actress posted an Instagram video about the experience, mentioning how nervous she was to perform in front of the crowd of 55,000 people. Thankfully, Los Dinos and Selena fans welcomed her with open arms, cheering her on as she performed.


We love that Jackie met Selena’s sister, Suzette, and we can’t help but notice how ravishing the two look together! Jackie is also channeling major Selena vibes, thanks to her bright red lips, strapless top, and dramatic sleeves. Suzette looked gorgeous with a black off-the-shoulder top, some gold hoops, and perfectly arched brows. Both women are honoring the legacy of Selena in their own ways, and we think that’s beautiful!

As for Fiesta de la Flor? Jackie already has plans to come back next year. And according to Suzette, next year’s festival is April 13th and 14th. So make sure to save the date and pack your busticaca. We’ll see you there!
