"Extra's" Mario Lopez recently sat down with "Q'Viva: The Chosen" executive producers Jamie King, Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez -- who proudly talked about the high level of talent that was discovered on the reality show, saying, "I can't tell you how many people came up there, from so many different countries and said, 'Thank you so much for doing this. I feel so proud to be Latino.'"

Lopez said "Q'Viva" will showcase "what our people are all about."

Marc revealed Colombia as the country with the most amount of talented competitors, while Lopez "thought it was Argentina." Without giving too much away, Lopez and Anthony pointed out that "Q'Viva" isn't like other talent competition shows where the hopefuls flock to a giant audition. In fact, it's quite the opposite. Marc said, "We would literally go to their address and knock on their door."

King added, "We're like talent scouts, in a way."

J.Lo, who signed up for a second season on "American Idol," expressed her excitement for the upcoming season, and said she has been busy with filming and "working on new music. A lot of stuff."

Lopez also revealed that Anthony had previewed some of her new songs, and smiled, "Oh, yeah, I played something for him the other day. I wanted to get his opinion." Marc responded, "Loved it. Get ready!"

Although the two are no longer married, Lopez explained they still "respect each other's artistic opinion."

As far as parenting their twins, Emme and Max, Anthony happily said, "School! They're in school... and their stories... let's just leave it at that."

When Mario noted how "cool it is to see you guys get along and work together and move forward," Jennifer replied, "We've always been friends. We were friends before anything, and we'll be friends... always. Working together was how we first met, so that's the easy part."
