"Very soon the world's heart will beat to the tune of Latin rhythms and we're looking forward to experiencing history in the making, Lopez said in a statement. "It is with great pride that we embark on this amazing and very personal mission to discover and celebrate the most captivating talent the world has ever seen."
Since a full interview wasn't in the cards, he did the next logical thing: he helped give the weather report -- via interpretive dance. This is not something that can be done justice by describing, so please just do yourself a favor and watch the video after the jump.

Or, maybe the question should be does anyone know that ABC broadcasts National Bingo Night on Friday night? The answer to both questions is 'apparently not'. At least according to the most recent ratings, that is.
Last Friday's episode came in fourth place in its time slot, garnering a measly 3.3 million viewers. It lost to a rerun of TV's Funniest Moments on FOX. If you break it down to age demographics (18-49 year-olds, to be precise) National Bingo Night came in fifth place behind shows being broadcast on Univision. If this show were on during the regular season it would have probably been yanked after its first half-hour.
Univision is getting into the miniseries game for the first time with La Flor Palida, about a celebrity named Sofia Marquez who gets caught up in a scandal and winds up running back to an old friend who has romantic feelings for her. The miniseries is being co-executive produced by Jennifer Lopez and will feature music from her upcoming Spanish-language CD Como Ama una Mujer.
Lopez will not act in the miniseries, which will probably premiere in late May, but will appear at the end of each installment singing a song from her album. Sony is also expected to release a CD/DVD package containing both the miniseries and Lopez's album.
American Idol fans can also tune in to tomorrow night's broadcast to hear Lopez sing a track from the new album.
