And according to Ellen DeGeneres, so was she. But she's surprisingly still on the movie's side!

The Latin superstar will be serving as a judge AND an executive producer on Simon's new reality competition called La Banda. Auditions will be held all around the country looking for the ultimate Latino boyband as part of the biggest talent search in U.S Hispanic television history!!!
Boys aged 14 and over will be able to sign up to audition in a city near them. All of the audition information can be found right HERE.
The reality competition is set to appear on the Univision Network this September, and we can't wait to see all the talent on display!
Naturally, there will be comparisons to One Direction, who were discovered on Cowell's The X Factor U.K. But rather than attempting to ride on the coattails of 1D, La Banda is embracing an opportunity to finally get the Latino supergroup that the world hasn't seen since Ricky's Menudo days!
And we'll be able to watch each piece of the group come together on TV!
And if you're interested in possibly participating on this historic show then we've also got all the information you need right here! Check out the La Banda audition dates and the cities where everything is happening down (below)!!!
