J.Lo and Marc Anthony team up for 'Q'Viva!'

It's official: Jennifer Lopez is indeed working on a new reality show.

The "American Idol" judge and her husband, singer Marc Anthony, have linked up with "Idol's" creator for a new project.

"Q’Viva! The Chosen" will feature the superstar couple traveling to various regions of the Americas over the course of three months in search of performers for "the ultimate live show celebrating Latin music, artistry and dance."

"This is a show for the 21st century with an unprecedented global and local story," Lopez is quoted as saying in a press release about the show. "The Latin culture is a tapestry that is rich in passion, tradition and artistry.  We are going to places where all of this talent lives and wouldn’t have otherwise been discovered. This journey for me and Marc is going be exciting and groundbreaking.”

The series will be filmed in three languages and broadcast simultaneously in 21 countries throughout North America, Central America and South America. The project is a partnership with the pair and Simon Fuller' s XIX Entertainment.

Fuller, the creator of "American Idol," said the show will be groundbreaking.

“Latin music and dance is loved all over the world but there has never been a particular show or live experience that truly celebrates its beauty and splendor," he said. "Q’Viva is that show.”

    Good for the mexicans. Now they can go through the same mind numbing torture Americans have been going through with American Idol all these years. I hope it has a long long run.

    Another example of someone taking a good thing, such as American Idol, and running it into the ground, with a million prequels/sequels/spin offs. dont these producers know when to leave well enough alone? Doesnt matter what country or language its in. Its still the same thing, just a different name.

    So this is aimed at mexicans? Everybody knows Mexicans don't watch anything but boxing and c0ck fights.

      Evel would have a tough time jumping his motorbike over a taco stand. Move back to Mexico, Evel.
