Summary: The final episode, Divas and Superstars, is an exciting backstage look at the Latin-pop explosion into the English-language market. At the turn of century, artists like Ricky Martin, Gloria Estefan, and Shakira became overnight sensations. But as music studios concentrated on star-driven pop, Latino youth gravitated toward a more urban-driven fusion, following Spanish-speaking rappers like Pitbull, and rockers like Colombian-born Juanes, a Grammy Award-winning musician who has become a global phenomenon. It's a rare look at the rise of an enduring musical and cultural sensation.
