You’ve seen The X Factor, America’s Got Talent, The Voice, So You Think You Can Dance, America’s Best Dance Crew, and now you get the newest form of talent shows: Who is the Best DJ?

While that likely won’t be the title of Simon Cowell‘s newest talent show, that’s the basic idea. Creator of shows like American Idol, The X Factor, and America’s Got Talent, Cowell has a real knack for knowing how to pick talent out of these country-wide casting calls.

If you’re wondering “why now?” Simon Cowell thinks that a DJ show is just what we need. “DJs are the new rock stars. It feels like the right time to make this show,” he said in a statement.

He does have a great point though. DJs like [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Afrojack[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]David Guetta[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Skrillex[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Deadmau5[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Swedish House Mafia[/lastfm] and more are experiencing some of their broadest success right now. And Electronic dance music (EDM) is going crazy and getting bigger everyday.

No specifics on judges or rules of the new talent game show, but we do know that the show will be co-produced by SYCO, Cowell’s joint venture with Sony Entertainment and Overbrook Entertainment, the production company [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Will Smith[/lastfm] founded.

As soon as we know more, we’ll clue you in. Stick with us!
