Week Clue (Translated)
1 "I am not the only one of my species, but thanks to my skin I can have all the names I want to have and all the professions I want to do. So don't get too confident if you think you've guessed what I can do. This competition is a war and I train properly, because whoever is strongest does not win, whoever is able to confuse the enemy wins. And what can I tell you, this chameleon really knows about it, not because it is marked in my species, but because I am not a conformist and I work like a gorilla. So, gentlemen, let the mask games begin."
3 "In the field as on the stage I like to give my all. And I strive to win every battle without the need for anyone to rescue me. Even if you think you can guess who I am, remember that I am a chameleon and I can change the color of my skin with a song. I have my eight senses set on this competition, because if they make me dance, I'm sure I can win. That's why I'm going to change my move and you're going to discover another side of Chameleon with the next song."
4 "Being the Chameleon is not as easy as it seems, my tail has a life of its own and is more rebellious than me, look at it! How do you see it? I like very much to be behind my reptilian image, but I like much more to be behind a camera. It all started when I was 17 and now I'm a great professional, so you better not be too careless my friend, because a very cool picture I can take of you. And since I'm with you, I'll presume you my next song, let's go, ready to listen to this crazy chameleon?"
5 "Hello everyone, if you want to know me a little more, I'm going to tell you about a real friend, from the first minute we became one, she was the best company a chameleon could have. But when she was gone and left me alone, I felt a hammer blow in my heart, I miss her. Now I'm grateful to life and to my friend, in fact, if you have a four-legged best friend, I'll tell you what, run away right now and give him a big hug. Meanwhile, I go on stage and tell you the story of how a star is born, are you ready? Let the show begin!"
6 "If my life were a movie, I would not want to recognize myself in it, to be a chameleon that you cannot locate, to be confused even with my sister, and not even my last name can you know, because that is how we chameleons are, with a thousand professions and a thousand faces. But if you are looking for clues, look at Obama's inaugural parade and you will see an elegant chameleon standing guard on his horse, oh yes. You already know it, what do you think? Well, now it's time to sing, I prepared something magical for you, enjoy."
7 "Hello everyone, I am a chameleon from the moment I leave the backstage until I return to it, every step I take is a photograph engraved in my heart, yes, in my heart. Oh about relationships, phew, if you ask me about my girlfriend I will tell you that she is very very mean. So let's change the subject and not talk about her. My true love is work, hard work. And I can't be a good chameleon if I don't sing you this song that has my name on it, do you know it? Sing it with me!"
"Hello, hello everyone, the truth is that I never imagined I'd be here, it's been a very, very long road to go crawling. I hope that with this song by Café Tacuba I can go even further with all of you and see you in the finale."
8 "Yes, this is what I call a triumphal entry, but getting here was not easy, although it was a lot of fun, it started with a Taki Taki to the heart, what a good twerk we did that day. And together with all of you I became a real showman. Until we arrived in a direct flight to the grand finale, and well, we are here to get a little crazy, no? and get it all out. I know that with your love and energy, nothing, nothing will stop me."
"I am the Chameleon, but behind Chameleon there is a noble and hard-working man, a professional who loves what he does, and who wants to leave his mark on this competition, I am a chameleon in every sense. I've told you about my species, my discipline as a soldier, I've given you clues about my three hundred and several professions, and even my photos I've revealed to you, yes, we've talked about my good relations. To the point that you have said that I am Óscar Schwebel, Alan Estrada, Faisy, Luis Gerardo Méndez, Kalimba, Christian Chávez, Vadhir Derbez, and that I am like Diego Boneta or Luis Miguel, hahaha yes. But if after all I have said you have doubts about who I am, listen to my next song next to a king of the jungle, Carlos Rivera! Hahaha, seriously I'm really nervous, but well, let's see, this one goes for all of you, let's go!"
