Christian Chávez gave fans a scare on Sunday when he fainted during a concert at Jorge González stadium in El Salvador. The member of youth band RBD was rushed to the emergency room, where he remained until Monday.

“The fainting spell caused alarm in the audience and in the other members of the group. With the help of the production team, they carried him off the stage,” Salvadorian newspaper La Prensa Gráfica reported, adding that the 24-year-old singer’s wooziness was caused by dehydration.

But as they say in the entertainment business, the show must go on, which is exactly what the remaining band members did after Chávez was taken from the stage. In fact, many people thought the singer was only joking and hadn’t actually fainted. “The effort we put into singing is for the audience,” RBD member Anahí told the local press.
