Madame Tussauds Orlando has finally come to their senses and blessed us with a wax figure of the late Tejano superstar Selena Quintanilla.

However, there is a catch. The Selena figurine, which is modeled after her 1993 concert performance in Corpus Christi, Texas, will only be in Orlando from Feb. 13 to April 8.



The company made the announcement Wednesday, and also stated they're hosting a special contest to be among the first to see "Selena" in Orlando.

Fans can enter by recording themselves singing their favorite Selena songs using the hashtag #LoveSelenaOrlando. Winners will receive tickets to the opening and have their video added to the attraction. More details about the contest can be found here. 

Madame Tussauds will announce the winners via Twitter on Feb. 9.
