Nervo hops on Simon Cowell’s DJ competition show; Tiesto says it won’t ‘ever work’
Aussie EDM twins Nervo have expressed their interest in joining Simon Cowell’s Ultimate DJ, set to air next spring in search of the next big act in electronic music. “We are talking to Simon Cowell because he wanted to meet us and he was really open about it,” Mim tells the UK’s Daily Star. “He said anyway we would like to be involved (in the show) we can be. I’ve never watched a reality TV judges show, but they said you could judge or mentor but we haven’t decided.” The show is slated to be a web series to be released on Yahoo! that will be similar to Cowell’s X Factor. Inevitably, discussion around the show has already begun to arise rumors about the involvement of other possible celebrity DJs.
Not everyone (thankfully) is on board with the idea, however. Megastar Tiesto shelled out his two cents, saying, “I don’t think it will ever work for Simon Cowell. The vocal aspect is what’s missing. When you see someone sing good or bad that will never get boring. But you need an hour to DJ, not two minutes on TV.” Someone had to say it.
