Hosted by TV personality Lucero, the show also includes judges Chiquibaby and Boris Izaguirre. The program will include an international pool of 100 social-media influencers who will vote on which contestants will sing, dance and show their star quality and showmanship.

The 13-week competition will eventually crown a winner as the ultimate "artist" in a show that will also feature music icon Juan Luis Guerra during the show's premiere.

More than 4,000 people auditioned in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Houston, Chicago and Puerto Rico. Of those contestants, 120 have traveled to Universal Studios in Orlando, Fla., where the competition takes place in three parts: auditions, selection and galas.

Telemundo and Reset TV are partners in the ownership of the show. They are also partners in the development, production and international distribution. The show's format is based on the original concept by the founders of Reset TV, Toni Cruz and Josep Maria Mainat, the creators of shows such as Crónicas Marcianas, Mira Quién Baila and Operación Triunfo.
