Feeling thrilled, appreciative, and joyful, the impersonator of the 19-year-old Mexican singer expressed gratitude for the commendation received from Amparo Grisales. The young contestant noted the significance of this praise, as Amparo is known to be the toughest judge to impress.

Pipe Bueno, who performed ‘Recostada en la cama,’ remarked, “We were very anxious to know what was going to happen with this character, and you exceeded expectations, really. Thank you very much for your performance. In fact, I had the pleasure of working with Angelita and her father in Miami for some awards”, thus confirming the excellence of her performance.
In conclusion, Cesar Escola, the presenter, composer, and musical director, said: “Beyond the imitation, what you achieved was to immerse everyone, the public, and the jury, in a dream, nostalgia, and feeling, and that is achieved when it is done with the heart, and you put it, I congratulate you if your name is Angela Aguilar.”
