Marc Anthony comments: "I am really excited about this new endeavour with Jamie and Jennifer. Throughout my travels around the world I have witnessed and encountered an amazing amount of undiscovered talent. "Q' Viva!" would provide an outlet to a whole new generation that have been waiting to have their voices heard".
Jennifer Lopez comments: "This is a show for the 21st century with an unprecedented global and local story. 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."
Simon Fuller comments: "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 splendour. Q'Viva is that show".
Jamie King comments: "I'm thrilled to be working again with Simon Fuller, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. We all share a love for Latin culture, the realness, the richness and purity of it and its traditional aspects. It's completely different to anything you've seen before. This is not about competition, it's about finding great talent, cultivating that talent and sharing it with the world. I can't wait to put this show on a global stage."
