Is it real, or is it J-Lo? Both, as it turns out. There are 55 minutes of the actual Selena here, filmed live at Houston's Astrodome in 1995. The 23-year-old Tejano singer performs her light, catchy tunes all in Spanish, save for a '70s disco medley (which includes, poignantly, "I Will Survive"); polished and charismatic, if not extraordinarily talented, Selena was clearly on the way up before her death at 23 at the hands of an employee. That she was later portrayed onscreen by Jennifer Lopez, who has eclipsed Selena's stardom by far, no doubt partly explains the inclusion on the DVD of a 45-minute documentary (truthfully, more like a lengthy puff piece for Entertainment Tonight) about the Selena biopic. If you want to know how the filmmakers made those tough decisions about hair, clothes, and lip-syncing, you will not be disappointed. But the real thing's better. --Sam Graham

I enjoyed this concert so much !!! Selena was amazing. I even loved the short "extras" included in the DVD about the "Selena" movie. My favorite and most fascinating bit there was the side-by-side comparison of Selena's moves and Jennifer Lopez's moves. It made me appreciate the hard work that was put into the movie to make it as authentic for the fans as possible and to keep the integrity of Selena's performances intact.

As far as this concert. Wow!!! She really made that stage her own and had a great interaction with the fans that night. She had great confidence and a love for her fans. How do I pick a favorite moment? Her upbeat songs were so much fun that it was not hard to imagine everyone up and dancing to the concert. Those were such great songs too. They really knew how to pick out material that could show off the song, Selena's vocals and the band's talent (her sister,Suzette, was not a part of this concert, she was out sick that night).
The slower songs were wonderful as well. Selena could really emote those lyrics and listening to her made me feel like she lived through what she was singing about. One of my favorite songs was (and still is) "No Me Queda Mas". That sort of sound with her voice like she was trying to hold back tears as she was singing was really heart-tugging. It made me feel like she was really emotionally wounded.
Songs like "Cobarde" and "Si Una Vez" showed a strong, womanly strength in her voice. It was a perfect fit.
And of course the fun, dance songs are classic Selena. She was just beginning to show what she could do with the "Disco Medley". Awesome. She would have effortlessly recorded all English-language albums with her unique style of music and topped the charts.

The Long, Long, LONG awaited release has finally come with Selena Live The Last Concert, the DVD that accompanies the album of the same name which was released in 2001.
After many delays, what was promised has finally arrived: The fulll 55-minute performance from February 26, 1995 - one month before her death - at the Houston Astrodome with 65,000 people in attendence.
Kicking off with the Disco Medley that was made famous in the 1997 film "Selena", and closing off with her signature song "Como La Flor", "Selena Live: The Last Concert" is sure to please any fan of hers - - as it is Selena at her best.
Also in the DVD is a 40 minute Behind The Scenes look at the making of the film "Selena". In which we will be able to see the finalists for the title role (including Jennifer Lopez), the final selection, and looks at the actual production of the film.
Finally, something that fans have been wanting...Selena doing what she did best...singing. No montages, tributes, or people talking about her on video. Those are fine and good, but nothing compares to seeing Selena.... just Selena.

I love Selena alot... But his DVD is dumb, Selena's performance is great and thats what makes this worth buying. But the way it was put together. First off, the original plan for this DVD was to include a behind the scenes "At the Astrodome", where Selena was interviewed befor the concert. But instead of Selena we get a cheesy behinde the scenes look at the making of "Selena: The Movie" I would have rather had Selena. Another thing, they added affects, During "Funky Town" Selena spins and her earring falls off, They split the screen into three and then it goes back to normal? During "Cobarde" after Selena introduces the song, she spins and again out of no where they make it slow-mo and then show her name "SELENA" on the screen? Why? Also, during the last song "Como La Flor" they changed the the intro and cut out some of Selena's good-bye. In the original performance they had messed up on the intro and they played it twice but you couldnt tell, it sounded like it was planed that way. And Selena's good-bye, was longer than the one on the DVD and CD. Also, included is a photo gallary with pics of Selena. and a remeberance read by Selena's dad, which is nice but he says something about her nice figure!? Now dont get me wrong I love the DVD but all the stuff they did to it was un-needed.

As a huge Selena fan and someone who was not fortunate enough to attend one of her concerts, I was thrilled when this DVD of her sell out concert in Houston was released. We all know that Selena was tragically murdered but it was a wonderful experience to see Selena perform on stage and give it her all in this great entertaining concert. We see Selena in all her beauty giving an unforgetable performance. With such style, grace, and great moves, she keeps us entertained from beginning to end. If you enjoyed the movie Selena and the soundtrack, many of those songs are performed in this exciting concert. We get to see her husband, Chris behind her playing his guitar even though her sister was unable to be there playing the drums due to a injury. I highly recommend this video to any Selena fan and fan of great Latino music. Excellent!!
