View Full Version : Simon Cowell launches new talent show to find DJs

01-25-2012, 01:26 PM

Simon Cowell is set to launch a new talent show which will search for "the world's greatest DJs".

Cowell's production company Syco Entertainment say they've been working on the TV format for over a year.
The show will be produced by Syco, Sony Pictures Television and Overbrook Entertainment - the company owned by Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith.
The programme "will capture the incredible rise of the DJ phenomena", the companies said in a statement.
Simon Cowell said: "DJs are the new rock stars, it feels like the right time to make this show."
A number of DJs have had chart success over the last year with David Guetta, Swedish House Mafia, DJ Fresh and Avicci all reaching the top 10 in the UK singles chart.
Jada Pinkett-Smith commented: "This show will comb the world to find a new breed of talent."
Simon Cowell is due to re-join the judging panel on Britain's Got Talent this year alongside Amanda Holden, David Walliams and Alesha Dixon.
The 52-year-old had mixed success last year, after his gameshow Red Or Black? received a lukewarm response from critics and viewers.
The X Factor also suffered a fall in viewing figures after Cowell left the show to concentrate on launching an American version of the series.

But the Sahara lineup is so good this year. Next year it will only be that much better thanks to this stroke of genius by that British stroke of a genius.
