Oct. 19, 2011: Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony and Jaime King are scheduled to begin shooting for their new talent competition "¡Q'VIVA The Chosen" this month up until Jan. 2012.XIX Entertainment
Finding America’s Idol wasn’t enough for Jennifer López.
“It gave me goose pimples from head to toe just thinking of the possibilities,” an ecstatic López said in a trailer promoting the new reality series.
“It’s probably going to be the biggest thing that I’ve been involved with yet.”
López, Marc Anthony and King will not be hosting auditions but instead will visit bars, nightclubs, dance studios, and secluded neighborhoods where the talented reside.
“This is less about competition and more about finding great talent,” said King, who has been a tour director, producer and choreographer to such stars as Madonna, Ricky Martin, Shakira and Christina Aguilera.
“We are expecting the unexpected… the realness, the richness, the purity and traditional aspects of the Latin American culture.”
J.Lo, who on Idol showed the world her love of salsa music as Anthony sang Héctor Lavoe’s rendition of “Aguanile,” is seen in the trailer dancing on a beach with Conga drummers pounding their tambores.
“This is me really being able to go 'I am Latina. This is who we are. Isn’t it fabulous? Isn’t it amazing?'” López asked.
“Doesn’t it bring tears to your eyes and make you want to dance and smile and jump and stay up all night?”
The chosen will be flown to Hollywood, where they will be mentored and guided by the trio.
Marc Anthony said his only regret was not doing this sooner.
“We don’t know what’s out there,” he said. “We made a pact to go on this journey to uncover the world’s most extraordinary talent.”
It will be challenging, but nothing great is easy,” he added. “It can be anything as long as it transcends language and this person was born to make you feel.”
