Controversies[edit]

Some controversies that surfaced during the season.

  • Contestant Magdalena León was dumped by her boyfriend during the show when, allegedly, she kissed several contestants at the studio/house.
  • Contestant Diana Mercado was heavily criticized by fellow contestants Luis Javier Chávez and Yaindhi Alvarez, for not performing their duets as rehearsed resulting in unfavorable evaluations to the latter.
  • Some feuds between Puerto Rican contestants Jonathan Ríos and Jometh Andujar rose during the final weeks. These were due to Jonathan not waking up in time during a weekend the group had in a hotel.
  • A week before the final show, Yuri, who had served as host of the show for the past three years, was surprisingly fired by the producers. Apparently, Univision wasn't happy with the fact that she wouldn't be on time for the rehearsals for the final show. She has denied this and has said that she found out about the decision through an e-mail.
  • The same week, allegations of fixes in the results grew heavier when a television ad appeared on YouTube showing the four finalists, two weeks prior to their selection. The advertisement was part of a product campaign for PepsiCo and the producers of the show have denied providing them with any voting result.
