Like a proud parent after a two year pregnancy, we are thrilled to finally share with the world…. IM5!
Spice Girls and American Idol creator Simon Fuller, along with creative director and Madonna's go-to-guy Jamie King, joined forces with Perez to put together a boyband for a new millennium. And we're really confident we succeeded!
Watch the video above to check out the band's cover of Jessie J's Domino and to meet for the first time Cole, Dalton, Dana, Gabe and Will!
We conducted an exhaustive search across America for the most talented of the talented! These kids can sing! ALL of them! They can dance! They play instruments! They act! They goof around! They come from all different ethnic backgrounds and have varying interests. But they all share a passion for music and entertaining that is set to bring smiles to faces all over the world!
We are astounded by their talent! And their age! They are all between 14 and 16!
So young! Such nice guys!
Such little superstars!
Remember this name - IM5! You're gonna be hearing a lot from them!!!!
After an exhaustive search for true talent and an equally thorough "training" to make sure they were ready, we are FINALLY set to unveil the boyband we've put together with the very talented Simon Fuller, who is the man responsible for the Spice Girls and American Idol, and Jamie King, the creative visionary behind all of Madonna's tours for the last ten years!
This is an amazing team and these boys are equally amazing!!!
We are beyond excited that the moment has finally come and on Wednesday we will be sharing with the world these 5 talented superstars!
Legendary director and choreographer Jamie King talks about Britney's upcoming Femme Fatale tour and even shows some behind-the-scenes footage of some of her performances (above)!
Jamie, who has worked with Britney before, says, "The first tour I directed for [Britney] was the Oops, I Did It Again tour. For us it's about keeping ourselves entertained, for sure, but also looking into new technology."
AND, be sure to check back to PerezHilton.com for your exclusive inside access to Britney's new tour!!!!
Perez was invited to a dress rehearsal of the Femme Fatale tour on Friday night and we can't wait to share our thoughts with you, our Perezcious readers!
We had heard that the show would revolve around J. Lo and her hubby traveling around Latin America looking for raw and untapped singing talent!
Now, official details of J. Lo's show have been announced, and we're loving what we're hearing!
The show is called Q’Viva! The Choice, and it's being put together by Simon Fuller's XIX Entertainment, along with J. Lo & hubby Marc Anthony, and music tour director/choreographer Jamie King.
Q'Viva will be shot in three languages, and it will be "broadcast simultaneously across 21 countries.”
Here's what J. Lo had to say about the show in a statement:
“This is a show for the 21st century with an unprecedented global and local story. The Latin culture is a tapestry that is rich in passion, tradition and artistry. We are going to places where all of this talent lives and wouldn’t have otherwise been discovered. This journey for me and Marc is going be exciting and groundbreaking.”
As we mentioned before, given Simon Fuller AND J. Lo's involvement with American Idol, the show isn't being viewed as a direct Idol competitor. In fact, J. Lo still MAY return to Idol as a judge next season, even with her new show.
We're very excited! We will DEF be tuning in for this one!
But now, the younger sister of Louis, Félicité Deakin (pictured above, left, with Louis), has figured out her own way to pay tribute to her mother in a very special manner, and we are SO touched by it.
On Friday, the 16-year-old Deakin shared the following image (below), a gorgeous portrait of the family with her late mother, Johannah Deakin, surrounded by all of her children:
