We were so excited when we heard that Simon Cowell was working on a show called La Banda to help find the next big Latino boy band (like he did with One Direction), and now he's bringing on an international pop star to help judge it. Ricky Martin has just been announced as the very first judge on the show — and not only that, but the winning boy band will also be managed by him!
“We are on a search for a world class band and we needed a world class judge and that’s why I’m thrilled to announce Ricky Martin as our first judge on La Banda,” Simon said.
“I know Ricky and he is as excited and passionate as me about the show and I know he’s going to do an amazing job.”
We're sure it's going to be great!
The show is set to premiere in September. Do you know any Latino boys over the age of 14 that live in the U.S. or Puerto Rico with awesome singing skills? Make sure they enter at LaBandaoficial.com!
