DJ's are the New Rock Stars

by Nikolozi Meladze


Already known to television audiences in Britain and the United States as the acerbic judge on hit talent shows like "American Idol", "The X Factor" and "Britain's Got Talent", the 52-year-old is looking to expand his empire.

"DJ's are the new rock stars, it feels like the right time to make this show," he said in a statement.

The new format will be co-produced by SYCO, Cowell's joint venture with Sony Music, and Overbrook Entertainment, a U.S. entertainment company founded by Hollywood star Will Smith.

It's about time we have a show like that.


If @SimonCowell asked me to be a judge on that show I'd say yes. I think I'd be a good fit :) (And sounds like a lot of fun)

If BT was to co-judge the show I'd definitely watch it.
