Simon Cowell announces plans for ‘X-Factor for DJs,’ leaves us speechless

The X-Factor took America by storm late last year, and now Simon Cowell is looking to apply the same model to the world of DJing. Cowell’s Syco Entertainment company — the same one involved with that little Leona Lewis debacle — has confirmed a live, international contest to “find the world’s greatest DJs.” Cowell himself told Music Week that he’s been working on the show for over a year, and adds that “DJs are the new rock stars.” It’ll be interesting to see how this all goes down when the show finally airs, but this certainly raises more questions than it answers. What kind of music, the general format, and which judges Cowell will bring in are all still TBA, but we’ll certainly keep you posted as we hear about the situation.
