After a petition was put together by his adoring fans, Romeo Santos finally has his very own wax figure displayed in New York City. The unveiling of the “Imitadora” singer’s figure was also the first ever opening of a new experience in the Madame Tussaud’s NYC museum called Sabor Latino, a display dedicated exclusively to Latin music. His wax twin will join the ranks of J.Lo, Selena and Ricky Martin and we have his dedicated fans to thank for that!

2. Zoey Saldana

The 38-year-old Star Trek actress struck a pose next to her wax figure at Madame Tussauds Hollywood, on April 7.

3. Selena Quintanilla

Selena might have tragically left us 22 years ego, but thanks to Madame Tussauds the music icon has been immortalized. After more than 10,000 people signed a Change.org petition asking the museum to create a wax sculpture of the singer, the figure became a reality.

Quintanilla, and older sister, Suzette Arriaga, attended the big reveal at Madame Tussauds Hollywood back in August 2016.
