Finally fulfilling her prophecy that the rhythm is going to get us, Gloria Estefan has confirmed that her highly anticipated musical "On Your Feet" will officially get its Broadway debut in 2015.

According to the New York Daily News, the musical will be bilingual, covering Estefan's dance music career, beginning with her early years in Miami, as well as her traumatic tour bus accident of 1990.

The Daily News also reports that "On Your Feet" will be accompanied by an anticipatory reality show, in which Estefan and fellow judges will find talent to play teen Gloria and 20-something Gloria.

It’s going to be daunting," she said, "But I have no doubt whatsoever that we are going to be able to do it and so much fun to be a part of the process."

Gloria and Emilio Estefan announced plans to turn their story in a musical back in February of 2013. Teaming up with the Nederlander Organization, they released a statement saying they were "very excited to share this story, which is based on hope, determination and the belief that with hard work and passion."

Also, apparently, William Levy is dying to play Emilio, so maybe someone will let him do that.
