Jennifer Lopez must really love her job on American Idol (and not just because of all the kissing), because she’s branching out and turning the gig into a family business. Lopez and Marc Anthony have created a new reality competition tentatively called Que Viva, where they will seek out the best Latin American music stars from south of the border.
The show will be produced by Simon Fuller and XIX Entertainment, the same producers of Idol, and it’s expected that Lopez will stay on board at Idol for at least one more season. We’ve said it before, but we do love Lopez on the show, she has the maternal warmth that Paula Abdul sort of had, but with a lot less crazy and a lot less palm-clapping. Doing this new show and searching for an artist with roots close to her own is a great fit.
