The fifth gala of the show’s popular Queens dance contest was not broadcast on the night of October 2 on América TV. The host and producer, Gisela Valcárcel, addressed her audience at the beginning of the competition schedule to explain the decision of the production in the face of COVID-19 cases reported in team members.
When it became known that contestant Melissa Paredes was infected with coronavirus, thousands of viewers wondered what this meant for the dance show. The production of the America television show decided to test cast and crew members, discovering that several people also contracted the virus. Given this, it was decided to suspend the recordings of Queens of the show to protect the health of the staff.
On Saturday, October 2, at 9 pm, Gisela appeared in front of the cameras on a stage that was not the reality one. Sitting in an office, she announced: “We will not present a regular program.” In this edition, a compilation of special moments from the previous galas is broadcast.

The driver explained that they initially thought it was an isolated situation, but “it ran very fast.” “The first thing is the human,” stressed the driver. He explained that the most important thing for the company are its members, and this led them to make the decision to isolate the Reinas team from the show.
“There is no valid reason why one infects another person and could cause death,” said Gisela. “Everything can and should stop when a human is at risk,” he firmly stated. He thanked his colleagues for accepting the measure that the production of America decided to take.
