Menudo is back! The super-popular Latin boy band gets a revamp thanks to reality TV. New Menudo member Carlos Olivero took some time out of his hectic schedule to talk to Kidzworld.
Sindy: Tell me about how you started as a performer. What are your first memories of singing or dancing?
Sindy: Who were some entertainers you looked up to when you were first getting into the business?
Carlos: Anybody who was talented and had the same passion as me for what I do.
Sindy: Menudo has such a great legacy and history behind it. Does that put a lot of pressure on you?
Carlos: No, not really. Honestly I don't think about it that way. I am confident in who we are and what we do.
Sindy: What do you think is your biggest strength as a performer? What do you have to work on?
Sindy: What are your favorite songs to perform?
Carlos: I would have to say Midnight and Lost.
Sindy: Why is dance more popular with younger people now, maybe more than ever before?
Sindy: Who would you love to work with in the future?
Sindy: You guys were chosen as part of a reality show. How has reality TV like American Idol changed the music scene?
Carlos: I feel that reality shows are good to a certain extent because it gives people the chance to actually bring their talents to the table and try their luck, rather than getting turned down from a record deal at first look.
Sindy: What was that competitive experience like?
