Chino & Nacho is the known Venezuelan duo whose broad musical style, ranging from romantic, to tropical, to urban music, has helped them break into international stardom. With hits like "Mi niña bonita," which catapulted them to the number one spot on Billboard's Latin music charts, they managed to win a Latin Billboard Award and a Latin Grammy.

Just recently, MundoFox announced that Chino & Nacho joined the network as judges of "El Factor X," which will air for the first time in the U.S. this summer. After the massive success of "X Factor" in America and all around the world, MundoFox will broadcast this original Spanish version where Hispanic viewers in the United States will choose the next Latin young superstar or band, among participants from 8-15 years of age.

"We are very happy to be a part of the judges' panel of "El Factor X." We really want to be able to advise and motivate the young people to fight for their dreams and we know that our advice will help them in their future endeavors as artists," expressed Chino, while Nacho added, "It is very exciting to help and support Latino talent, especially gifted children that live in the States."

Meanwhile, MundoFox's Vice President of Programming, Adriana Ibañez said, "We are confident that our judges will know how to guide and advise all participants in a warm, positive and exciting environment," referring to Belinda and Angélica María, who also join the cast of "El Factor X" alongside Chino & Nacho.

"El Factor X" is being produced by FreemantleMedia Latin America for MundoFox. This music competition is a worldwide phenomenon, reaching more than 500 million viewers across 17 countries.
