Anthony, Lopez to perform together

Marc Anthony revealed working with Jennifer Lopez is like second nature - as he announced he's reuniting with his ex for one night in concert.

The pair will perform together on May 26 in Las Vegas as part of Q'Viva! The Chosen Live, which will feature the top performers from their televised talent show.

"It's a very unique, modern way, and sexy way, to package these traditional talents," Marc said. "I'm really, really looking forward to the live show."

Q'Viva! The Chosen features the former couple as they travel around the globe to find the best Latin talent. Marc and J-Lo are executive producers, along with American Idol creator Simon Fuller and the show's director, Jamie King.

The show was conceived when the pair were still a couple, and even after announcing their break-up last year, they decided to go ahead as hosts.

Marc said he could see why some people don't understand how the former couple, who were married seven years and have twins together, are able to still work side by side.

"I know it's shocking to people, and I hear that a lot," he said, adding with a chuckle, "It's more shocking to me that it's shocking to people."

Marc said he and J-Lo met while working, and for them, working side by side is natural, and there's no bad blood between the two.

"Thank God that's not the case, obviously. Maybe if that was the case, it would've been different," he said. "But, that's why I can tell you it was a wonderful experience all the way around."

Besides J-Lo and Marc, 52 performers will perform as part of the Q'Viva! concert. It's a culmination of the TV show's search for acts for what Marc called "the world's most amazing Latin spectacular ever."
