Jenni Rivera: 'The Voice Mexico' Continues Without Her
The spin-off of the hit U.S. competition will resume on Sunday.
The Voice Mexico (La Voz Mexico) will resume Sunday on Televisa after being postponed by the death of Jenni Rivera, the network confirms to The Hollywood Reporter.
Televisa delayed that night's semifinal episode of The Voice Mexico following news of the crash; instead, the network aired a special on the superstar singer.
The show will "resume with its regular transmission," according to Televisa, which isn't planning to reformat the program's final showdown into an homage to Rivera.
Rivera, among the most successful female performers on today's Latin scene, was signed to Fonovisa/UMLE and starred in her own reality show, I Love Jenni, on cable network mun2. She recently signed with ABC to star in her own comedy series, Jenni.
"Jenni was one of the most influential, authentic and captivating Latinas in entertainment. She was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, daughter and friend, who broke through the language barrier and connected with millions of fans in a unique, powerful and lasting way," said a joint statement from Spanish-language mun2, which broadcasts I Love Jenni, and sibling channel Telemundo.
