Simon Cowell is Launching a DJ Talent Search Show

Simon Cowell pioneered the singing competition reality show format, so now he’s moved on to developing a show that will search for America’s next best DJ.

Ughhhh, “America’s Got DJ’s” or what about “So you Think You Can DJ?” or how about “The DJ Factor”? None of those sound awesome.

According to Simon Cowell, DJ’s are the future of the music industry.

“DJ’s are the new rock stars, it feels like the right time to make this show,” said Cowell in a statement.

This is so true. I knew a girl who got knocked up in high-school and at first everyone was like, “ahhhhh, too bad” and then we found out the baby daddy was a DJ and everyone was like “ahhh, sooo coool!” The baby’s name is Stryker. So rad, huh?

Anyways, the show is being produced by Simon’s company SYCO in a partnership with Jada Pinkett Smitt and Will Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment.

Simon will not be a judge on the show however, he will only be producer. He tweeted this earlier today, “Excited to announce new DJ show. I will NOT be judging this show. Excited to be working with @jadapsmith. Stay tuned!”

Will any of Simon’s past co-judges like Paula Abdul, J.Lo or Randy be involved in the show too? How do you even judge a DJ competition show? Bonus point for DJ’s with awesome laptop cases? I guess we’ll find out.
