The most commented moment by the audience of this six and a half hour long gala was the fall Mayra Gómez Kemp
had while doing a musical performance alongside Concha Velasco
, Raúl Sender
, Paco Valladares
and Bibiana Fernández
. Just earlier, José Luis Perales
and Nina Hagen
had appeared on stage and the public had thrown flowers to the scenery, specially on Perales' performance.
As the gala was live, there was no time to sweep the floor before Mayra and the others' performance, the commercial break was scheduled to be done right after that performance. While doing a dancing step, Mayra stepped on a flower, it made her slip and she fell down right when the camera was focused on her. She didn't get injured, quickly got up and resumed the performance as if nothing had happened, but the incident was the biggest highlight of all the show.
As she later said, the following morning, on New Year's Day, Narciso Ibáñez Serrador
, with whom she regularly worked in Un, dos, tres... responda otra vez
(1972), phoned her and told her "Babe, you don't know what to do to get people's attention. Out of six hours of show, people only talks about your fall." The fun fact is, the following day, when the show was repeated in the afternoon, people who hadn't seen the show live were watching to see the infamous fall, but the repeated version was cut for time, and among the things that were cut off was the fall, disappointing these viewers.
