No one can replace our beloved Selena Quintanilla, but when the opportunity came to honor her life on camera, many women auditioned for the role of a lifetime. The above video gives us an inside look at the auditioning process for Selena, the film, and proves that the producers searched high and low to find the perfect person to portray the Queen of Tejano. In fact, the producers held a national casting call and over 6,000 women showed up to win the two coveted spots: child Selena and adult Selena. It's been 19 years since the film's release and we definitely think they found the perfect choice casting Jennifer Lopez for the lead role. Check out the video above and let us know if you think any of the women featured showed off any impressive Selena skills.
