The winner of Artist of the year 2021, Ruby Palomino, responded to the criticism she has been receiving for having defeated Yahaira Plasencia in the final of the contest. The singer of “Cholo soy” defended herself with a strong message in which she clarified that she will always maintain her essence and love for rock on stage.
She explained to her detractors that when she had to interpret a different musical genre, she wanted to make her own version of the song and not just imitate the singer.
“The contest has taken me out of my comfort zone. People think and say ‘oh, but they sing everything like rock’. Sometimes I laugh because I have tried to keep my essence, I can sing huayno, chicha or ballads, but I always have to keep that. It’s easy to imitate the artist, but trying to make the song your own has been a challenge for me as an artist., (I want to) explain that to people, “he said.
