Jennifer Lopez - Jennifer Lopez Embraces Latin Roots

Jennifer Lopez is hoping to embrace her Latin roots for her new show.

The 'American Idol' judge and her husband singer Marc Anthony will travel to 21 countries across the Americas where they will ask local people to help them find "world's most extraordinary talent" for 'Q'Viva! The Chosen'.

Jennifer said: "With this show we hope for the first time to unite all of the Latin cultures and make something that makes everybody proud. This is like me being able to really, really go, 'I am Latina, and this is who we are! Isn't it fabulous? Isn't it amazing? Doesn't it bring tears to your eyes and make you want to dance and smile and jump and stay up all night?'"

The couple will work with tour director Jamie King and according to Jennifer, will travel to "places people wouldn't normally look, where all of this rich talent lives and wouldn't normally be discovered," including clubs, bars, dance studios and festivals.

Marc added they hope to be "literally guided by the [local] people, leaving no stone unturned".

The people discovered on their travels will be brought to Hollywood, where they will be mentored by the stars to create "the ultimate live show."

Jennifer explained: "It really is a show for the 21st century. It's unprecedented in that it's global and it's local. We're going to do our best make the most amazing show that the world has ever seen."
