Simon Cowell's a cunt, and not a mad one either. Just a cunt.

Seriously?

Simon Cowell set to launch new TV talent show to 'find the world's greatest DJs'

Quote:
The X Factor mogul Simon Cowell has announced that he will be launching a new TV talent show which aims "to find the world's greatest DJ's".

The show, which does not yet have a title, will operate in a similar manner to the X Factor, with DJs battling it out to secure fame and fortune, reports Music Week.

Speaking about the project, Cowell described DJs as "the new rock stars" and said that the show will capture the rise of "DJ phenomena". The show has been in development for over a year.

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.

Simon Cowell said of the show: "We have been working on this show for over a year and we wanted to partner with the right people. As soon as I met Jada and Miguel from Overbrook, I knew they would be our ideal partners. DJs are the new rock stars, it feels like the right time to make this show."

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, the Sony team, and my partner Miguel Melendez, on behalf of the Overbrook family."

It is still unknown which UK and US TV networks will broadcast the show, with more details expected to be confirmed shortly.

Go on the show.. Even if you don't do well you will be getting your name on international television. To me it is butchering the fact that DJing is not about being famous or the lifestyle but bringing music to the population.

The great DJ's grow up spinning in their hometown and moving that area forward in the music world. Not by showing up on a stage and playing a role.


Edit: This caters to the majority & not the minority, and the majority of people who watch shows like this only lissen to pop. (did i mention that the majority would be from america). So it will be less about the music and more of a fight.

So in short: It will be less about the music and bringing an experience to people and more about beating everyone else and fitting the "image"



Man I hate it when I think of what to say after I submit the post...

Re: Are you kidding me Simon Cowell?

plague cell wins the thread.

except, any djs that get anywhere on this idea of a mainstream show will play fashionable yet vapid pop remixes. jeff mills could play it in a mask, and he wouldn't come close to winning.

*sigh*

Re: Are you kidding me Simon Cowell?

How long will each DJ have to play for their talent to be considered? I mean a singer can sing a few lines and you know they can sing. Unless the DJ is doing lots of quick, creative scratching and tweaking, he's just playing tracks. And the success of that has to be determined by a set.

Oh no, you (me/everybody) are mistaken. I'm sure they will tell us what makes a good DJ and then base it on that (not actual DJ skills). America in return will flock to the clubs expecting the new standard.

Sad.

I swear they will probably base it on who has the latest Pitbull & Chris Brown

Perhaps they will get celebrity DJ judges.

Yes well. That kind of thing is cool but a DJ version of "XXX got Talent (not)" and all the other boring, crappy, hyped up reality TV shows really isn't something the world needs...

I'm sure they'll pick someone that will be more interesting than the currently hyped up top "EDM" DJs.... lol

Sorry I'm feeling a bit cynical and have some slight articulation problems today
