Selena Quintanilla fans are in for a real treat thanks to NBC Universo. On Thursday, the network will air a back-to-back special on the Queen of Tejano. As Selenaholics ourselves, we are stoked because every day is a day to celebrate her legacy. 

The great news was revealed Wednesday morning on Selena's official Facebook page, which is managed by the Quintanilla family. "Tomorrow, NBC UNIVERSO will present and extra-special program: 'Selena' the movie, followed by the 'Siempre Selena' special," expressed the post that garnered nearly 2,000 shares within the hour. The post, which was accompanied by a 30-second trailer, also made sure that fans get a hold of the hashtag #SelenaUniverso to keep interactive during the TV special. 

With snippets from the movie and her last concert at the Astrodome in Houston, the trailer states the following: "NBC Universo presents a special night to celebrate the queen of Tejano music. First, 'Selena' the movie, followed by 'Siempre Selena,' a special based on the concert that immortalized her forever." 

We are pretty sure that after this news, all Selena fans are canceling their Thursday night plans to stay at home and spend it with the beloved "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom" songstress. Here's when and where to watch this back-to-back special.

In other news, the Quintanilla family is also inviting all Selena fans to show their love and support by voting for Selena in an important list compiled by Billboard. 

"Billboard compiled a list that represents the best-selling, most influential and most acclaimed albums across a variety of genres and decades. Their editors focused almost entirely on studio albums -- compilations are only included where absolutely necessary, and live albums appear in select, historically important instances." according to a post on its Facebook page early this week.

Selena's album "Amor Prohibido" has been selected as part of the Music Industry's Favorite Albums of All Time. The results of the survey will be part of Billboard's "The Music Industry's Greatest Albums of All Time." Fans can vote here
