Univision and Simon Cowell begin Latino talent search for “La Banda”
The search begins this week for the ultimate Latino boyband as Univision’s new music-based reality-competition show “La Banda.” This nuevo show, hosted by la guapa Alejandra Espinoza, aims to create the world’s ultimate Latino boyband through the largest Latino talent search in U.S. TV history. (Our inner teeny-bopper is squealing in excitement now!) Contestants will compete for a place in “La Banda” and for a coveted recording contract with Sony Music Latin, the label that is home to the most prolific Latin music artists, along with Syco Music, the recording label of the world’s biggest selling boyband – One Direction.
“I’m very excited about this show. There is a huge amount of talent out there and ‘La Banda’ is going to give five guys the opportunity of a lifetime.” – Simon Cowell
