Talent competition series Tengo Talento, Mucho Talento is set to kick off a new season that will feature all-female contestants for the first time ever in its history.
In honor of Women’s History Month, the show’s 24th season will “focus on the influence of Latinas in entertainment,” according to an official statement. Returning judges include Chiquis, Ana Bárbara, Pepe Garza and television/radio personality Don Cheto, with Luis Coronel as host.
“Regional Mexican music has traditionally been dominated by male artists, so I feel blessed to be able to be a voice that represents women in the regional and banda genre and part of the group of female artists that have been able to cross those barriers,” Chiquis said in a statement. “My female colleagues in the industry are allies, not competitors, together we are stronger and in that unity we can best represent female voices. My wish is that many other women can break through and succeed, which is why I am so happy about this upcoming season of Tengo Talento, Mucho Talento featuring female artists.”
Bárbara added, “It’s a great honor for me to represent women in the regional Mexican genre. It has been a long journey in a music genre dominated by male artists, but consistency, the support and acceptance of my fans and the hard work that we’ve invested in this career have been the key factors that have maintained me here. And now, to be part of a season of Tengo Talento that is dedicated to women, well it makes me very happy and fills me with much satisfaction. During this Women’s History Month, we will prove that there’s not just talent, but also women who are empowered, who are fighters and who are successful.”
Tengo Talento, Mucho Talento will feature special celebrity guest judges throughout the new season, which will premiere Monday, March 29 at 8:00 p.m. ET on EstrellaTV Network, Samsung TV+, The Roku Channel, Xumo and FuboTV.
Last season, Tengo Talento crowned its first ever regional Mexican boy band, Nuevo Elemento, comprised of Lilo Bermúdez, Yahir Garduño, Danny Rea, Carlos Gabriel and Hector Osobampo.
