“Idol Puerto Rico” follows the same format as “American Idol” but featuring Puerto Rican talent. “Idol Kids” features the best young singers in Puerto Rico between the ages of 6-12.
The well-known judges in the 2013 edition of “Idol Puerto Rico” include Puerto Rican music producer and television host Topy Mamery, Latin Grammy-winning Dominican Merengue music sensation Milly Quezada, and chart-topping Mexican/Argentinian musician Noel Schajris. Television personality Jaime Mayol will host the show for the third consecutive year.
“Idol Kids” will have an equally impressive set of judges, among them singer/songwriter Kany Garcia, singer/actress/dancer Ana Isabelle, and former boy-band “Menudo” creator Edgardo Diaz. Puerto Rican actress and model Karla Monroig will host the show.
The first editions of both “Idol Puerto Rico” and “Idol Kids” will feature auditions from throughout the island. Once the finalists have been chosen, viewers will be able to watch the live performances broadcast from the Fine Arts Center in Caguas, Puerto Rico (Centro de Bellas Artes de Caguas). For the first time, U.S. viewers will be able to vote to keep their favorite contestants in the competition.
“Idol Puerto Rico” will air every Monday at 9pm ET and “Idol Kids” will air on Sundays at 8pm ET, exclusively on both WAPA America in the U.S. and on WAPA Television in Puerto Rico.
