Blending Cuban culture with Mexican traditions, Sinthia Echavarria, a Tampa, Florida resident, captivated the audience with her performance on the U.S. talent show "Tengo Talento, Mucho Talento." Echavarria, 42, performed her original song “La de los pantalones aquí soy yo,” a corrido tumbado, and stunned with bold attire and a striking stage presence, as seen in the video posted on the talent show's Facebook page.

Echavarria aims to astonish the show's judges, stating that her key to success is to blend her 'Cuban essence' with her 'Mexican flair,' always being fierce, as she advises her students. Besides her artistic career, she also works as a teacher. The judges responded to her performance with numerous nods of approval and smiles of complicity.

Prior to her appearance on the show, Echavarria revealed that she had spent 18 years as a showgirl in Mexico's tourist hotspot, the Riviera Maya in Quintana Roo. She is not the only Cuban to make waves on the American television show, as other compatriots have also gained applause and success.

Manuel and Llenay, a married couple from Miami aged 25 and 24, impressed with their pole act. Before their performance, the duo expressed their excitement and anticipated that their act would surprise both the audience and the judges, as stated on the show’s YouTube channel.

Additionally, Giraldo Morelio, a Cuban raft refugee now living in Orlando, Florida, touched the judges with his moving story and singing. He performed "O me voy o te vas" by Marco Antonio Solís in early April, as shared by the talent show on their Facebook page. Morelio's performance allowed him to continue in the competition, captivating the judges and viewers alike with his heartfelt rendition.
