Of course, the cover was given a natural spin to her musical style and grace. But the song stayed true to Selena.  Musgraves stunned the Houston Rodeo goers with her sparkling, pink-lit star stage in the middle of the stadium and her in the middle singing her heart out. The crowd loved it.

At the end of her performance, Musgraves enthusiastically proclaimed her love to the Queen of Tejano Music.

“I love the Queen Selena as much as you do, Viva Selena!”

And if the Selena tribute isn’t enough for you, she finished her time on stage in true rodeo fashion – by literally riding off on a horse after her set.

Como La Flor and Queen Selena

Selena Quintanilla is known as the “Queen of Tejano Music.” She gave her final performance on the 26th of February 1995 at the Hoston Astrodome. She concluded the concert with the now renowned “Como La Flor” – a massive hit song for Selena way back in 1992.

Her impact on music and her fans are still tremendously felt many years after her untimely death and Musgraves’ performance is a true testament to that.
