La Academia, the Azteca reality TV show that is the main hub for musical talent in Mexico, is going through crucial weeks in its edition to celebrate the show’s 20th anniversary. This edition has been criticized for production decisions and one of the most recent relates to the winner’s nationality: many followers claim that the winner be Mexican.
Up to this point in the competition, of the six remaining students, only two are Mexicans: Andres, from Sonora, and rubyfrom San Luis Potosi, the last one of the students most attacked in this version by netizens who consider that she should not be ahead of the competition anymore because she “does not sing anything”.
They seem strong to win the competition, Mar, from Ecuador; Nelson from Guatemala. and Cesia, from Honduras, who calls herself the “Honduran lioness” due to the abundance of her cold.
A follower of La Academia said: “I don’t see her anymore, they brought out Fernanda, who sang very beautifully Rancheras, she was the best, now there are only foreigners and it is not fair for a Mexican to win.”
But the opinion that La Academia should be won by a Mexican is divided in opinions: “Do you know how many Mexicans participate in competitions from other countries? You are a xenophobe. I hope the best man or woman wins … regardless of nationality.”
Another netizen said: “My favorite student was Fernanda, but since they made the big foolishness to remove her, I won’t vote for anyone anymore, what’s more, I don’t see the academy anymore, the truth is so boring.”
Indeed, Lolita Cortes herself, considered the “iron judge” for her blatant criticism, asserted that if it were up to the judges, students like Fernanda would not have left the academy, and others like Robbie Ibarra would not have entered. “But the audience gets to decide,” Curtis said one night at the party.
This is how filters work in the academy
Among the 16 students who started on June 12th, are still in competition: Robbie Ibarra, of San Luis Potosi; sea from Ecuador; Andres, of Sonora; Nelson from Guatemala. Sesia from Honduras. and Eduardo from the United States.
Those who have been eliminated in the academy so far are: Roberto Bot, Esmeralda, Alejandra, Mariana LuigiAnd the Jackie, Isabella, Zunio, Fernanda and Santiago. Aguascalientes-born Emilio de la Cruz Martínez, 21, also left the competition with his decision due to anxiety issues.
In this case from La Academia, criticism falls more strongly on Ruby and Eduardo, who returned to La Academia after voting via TikTok, but they still did not convince the public.
“Ruby is already starting to say she wants to leave because she doesn’t want to make it to the final, really a lot of circus, it’s pure drama the more pain, the more votes she gives, she just wants to get attention, because she knows there are a bunch of people supporting his incompetence.”
Another netizen said: “Ruby Ott and Fernanda should be Eduardo’s place.”
