It was the grand finale of "Q'Viva! The Chosen" (Sat., 11 p.m. ET on Fox) and Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony and Jamie King couldn't have been more proud of the group they'd gathered to represent Latin culture to the world via their big stage production at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
The show has been divided into five categories: Latin culture, passion, pride, ritual and unity. And in this finale, the remaining contestants had their last chance to impress the judges and show that they belonged in one of those categories, and on that stage representing their passion and their country.
It was a tense elimination, quickly replaced by relief and excitement as the cuts were very small and the focus turned to the May 26 premiere. And for that, Lopez and Anthony had a surprise for the cast.
"We've decided that for opening weekend here at the Mandalay Bay, Marc and I are going to be in the show with you guys presenting you to the entire world," Lopez told the assembled performers. "It is our pleasure and our honor."
The couple may be going their separate ways in their real life, but this show is a testament to their shared vision, and their passion and commitment to their Latin roots.
The television series may be over, but "Q'Viva! The Chosen" will go on as a live stage show, beginning May 26 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
