Telemundo is one of the sponsors of a search for the next Menudo. Yes. Menudo. Remember the boy band that once counted Ricky Martin as a member?
The 16 week search for the new Menudo, or more correctly, Menudo – En Busca de la Nueva Generación, takes place on Showpitch.com. The press release says this is the first time an entirely new group of Spanish language teen music artists will be discovered online.
Starting July 1, males between 10 and 15 are encouraged to visit Showpitch.com to submit a three minute video. The top 25 will be chosen through social media and will perform in Miami for a chance to be one of the five teen idols in the next generation of the teen boy band.
“We are thrilled that our viewers will be able to fully engage and join in this unique production, which is presented by Showpitch.com, by visiting our local Telemundo station websites and social media platforms,” said Mike Chico, svp of sales for the Telemundo Station Group. “The Telemundo Station Group has a robust digital offering that allows our viewers to connect and engage with our local stations while they are on the go to get the latest news and information they need or learn about exciting new offerings such as this presentation.”
