Simon Cowell & Will Smith to find "the World's Greatest DJ's" in the launch of their new TV show
Host of The X Factor, Simon Cowell, recently announced that he'll be launching a new TV talent show aimed at finding "the world's greatest DJ's." Music Week reports that DJ's will battle with one another in order to secure fame and fortune.
Cowell says that "DJ's are the new rock stars" and said that the show will capture the rise of "DJ phenomena". The show will be co-produced by Cowell's company, SyCo, and production group, Overbrook, which is owned by actor Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith.
Jada Pinkett Smith said, "This show will comb the world to find a new breed of talent. I am happy to be creating it alongside Simon Cowell."
More details about which UK and US TV networks will broadcast the show are expected to be confirmed shortly.
What are your expectations of this show? Something to take seriously or something to watch for a good laugh? Do you think this will be a good thing to expose the electronic/DJ scene or will it make a mockery of it?
