Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony’s ‘Q’Viva!: The Chosen’ Is Still ‘On’
After seven years of marriage, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have announced their split, but the couple’s Latin-oriented talent show, ‘Q’Viva!: The Chosen,’ will still continue with production as planned.
Lopez, Anthony and choreographer Jamie King announced their new series in June as a collaboration with ‘American Idol‘ creator and XIX Entertainment CEO Simon Fuller. The trio was set to travel through Latin America this month in search of the most outstanding undiscovered performers.
Despite stating that the split was “amicable,” Lopez and Anthony reportedly separated due to incessant arguing. However, it seems the couple are not letting their personal matters affect their business affairs.
“The show goes on,” a XIX Entertainment rep tells The Hollywood Reporter. “‘Q’Viva!,’ the hotly anticipated 2012 celebration of Latin music, artistry and dance, is set to film this autumn in South America with Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony as previously announced.”
A lot has been invested in ‘Q’Viva!’ In just one month, the series has drummed up plenty of excitement, and talent submissions are already being taken online via the show’s official website. After an extensive selection process, the best hopefuls will fly to Hollywood to be mentored by the trio and participate in “the ultimate live show.”
‘Q’Viva!’ is expected to 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 said. “We’re going to do our best make the most amazing show that the world has ever seen.”
