Beto Cuevas is happy using his experience to help the young people competing on "Protagonistas, el Reality," the Univision TV talent show where the famed singer and actor shares judging duties with Laura Zapata and Isabella Santo Domingo.

For Cuevas, who for 15 years led the internationally acclaimed rock group La Ley and later went on to success as a soloist, this show is just one more stage in a process of constant evolution.

"In the past I put my experience at work guiding others, but this is something new, because it's all about acting and it allows me to express my immense love of movies and the dramatic arts," the artist, who was born in Chile and grew up in Montreal, told Efe.

What does he look for in the contestants?

Cuevas, who has been dubbed "the good one" among the trio of judges because of the sensitivity with which he fosters talent and guides the young people competing for the chance to appear in a new telenovela, doesn't have to think twice: "I look for someone unique, who's not run-of-the-mill. There are people on the show who undoubtedly have something special to offer."

"Sometimes you find that magic in someone who is just starting out and you see how that person gradually begins to open and then to flower," he said.

At present, besides taking part in "Protagonistas, el Reality," Cuevas is recording his next and as yet untitled disc, scheduled to go on sale in 2012.
