The series follows Lopez and her now ex-husband Marc Anthony as they travel throughout Latin America, seeking talent to invite to the next round of the competition in Las Vegas. The fact that they go to where these people live gives the show a different twist from other talent shows. No matter how many auditions are scheduled in different cities, there will always be those people who simply can't make it, be it for financial reasons, or work reasons or familial obligations. Lopez and Anthony eliminated any obstacles for their potentials by seeking them out in their hometowns.
In this two-hour premiere, the couple split up during the recruiting process to find a lot of interesting and talented individuals. But one pick by Anthony certainly caught the eye of Lopez. He sat in on a pair of beautiful twin dancers and while he was honestly brutal in his critique of their sub-par performance, he nevertheless invited them to Vegas.
It was the potential in them he saw, Anthony insisted, but Lopez was pretty sure it was something else in them he was seeing. It's the same struggle she faces every season with Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler on "American Idol." Show the guys a pretty face, and suddenly everything looks a lot better than it might really be.
"Q'Viva! The Chosen" continues Saturdays at 8 p.m. EST on Fox.
