EDM Competition Reality Show
Electronic Dance Music will get its first reality competition show and it will be hosted by none other than the English music and television producer Simon Cowell.
Of course everyone knows Cowell from being the rough sometimes rude judge on American Idol, Britain’s Got Talent and X Factor. Now he will be producing a show rumor to be called “Ultimate DJ” which will focus on EDM DJ’s and premier on Yahoo. Ultimate DJ, which has been in discussion and development for years, has been put on the fast track to becoming a reality, given the current boom of dance music in America.
“Ultimate DJ” will be different from most talent shows as it will have pre-recorded parts along with live scenes that will broadcast weekly on Yahoo.
“We have been developing this concept for a while but our partnership with SFX has been a real game-changer for this format,” Cowell said in a press release. “It made complete sense for us to collaborate with SFX with their access to the best up-and-coming DJs and their great marketing platform to build new DJ talent”
“Bringing EMC (electronic music culture) to the world is our goal,” added Robert Sillerman Chairman & CEO of SFX Entertainment. “And building a TV franchise in the USA is a key part of that strategy. It’s always exciting to work with Simon Cowell, and the creative power of the Syco organization is undisputed. They are the perfect partners for our vision.”
