Anthony & Lopez to Perform Together for “Q’Viva! Live”

It’s official… Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez will be reuniting… For one night in concert, that is.

The former couple will perform together as part of Q’Viva! The Chosen Live, a special show that will feature their picks from Anthony and Lopez’s televised Latin talent show.

“It’s a very unique, modern way, and sexy way, to package these traditional talents,” Anthony told Billboard. “I’m really, really looking forward to the live show.”

Q’Viva! The Chosen, currently airing on Univision and Fox, features the pair as traveling across the globe to find the best undiscovered Latin talent. Both Anthony and Lopez are executive producers of the show, along with American Idol creator Simon Fuller and choreographer Jamie King.

Besides Lopez and Anthony, 52 performers from around the world will perform as part of the Q’Viva! concert to be held at Mandalay Bay Events Center on May 26. It’ll serve as the culmination of the TV show’s search to find acts for what Anthony calls “the world’s most amazing Latin spectacular ever.”

Anthony said one of the things that most impressed him was how the artists bonded despite differences in ethnicity and where they came from.

“I thought that bringing all of these artists together in one house would have been a little more dynamic by way of conflict,” the salsa singer said. “That’s one thing that absolutely blew me away, the way they became one nation. And that’s how they would put it – ‘We’re one nation, all of us.'”

Anthony believes the show, in its inaugural season, will be back.

“Absolutely. We’re in the middle of setting it up now,” he said. “This is a passion project. … I’m looking forward to doing it again. It’s bigger than all of us. It’s a movement.”
