Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony Reach Out to Latin American Locals for New Talent Show
According to People, Lopez, Anthony and superstar tour manager Jamie King will trek throughout the region in “places people wouldn’t normally look, where all of this rich talent lives and wouldn’t normally be discovered,” says Lopez. She adds, “It’s probably going to be the biggest thing I’ve been involved in yet.”
Clubs, bars, dance studios, underground dance halls and festivals will be combed for the stars of tomorrow. The talent search will begin in July, and videos uploaded to YouTube and Facebook will also be considered. “This is less about competition and more about finding great talent, cultivating that talent, putting it on stage and giving it to the rest of the world,” King says.
The cream of the crop will fly to Hollywood and be mentored by the trio to create “the ultimate live show,” which will be filmed in three languages and broadcast simultaneously across 21 countries in North America, Central America and South America. “It really is a show for the 21st century. It’s unprecedented in that it’s global and it’s local,” Lopez says. “We’re going to do our best make the most amazing show that the world has ever seen.”
