Simon Cowell has confirmed that “Ultimate DJ”, his next talent competition brainchild, will officially be a new show, coming to your small screen…
This quickly lead to a Deadmau5 Twitter burst, which are always my favorite. Here are the highlights:
The likes of Dillon Francis and Calvin Harris have also been enjoying Deadmau5’s tweets as much as I have with some replies and retweets.
The show will be an online video series on Yahoo. Yahoo and Ultra Records have teamed up with Cowell’s production company (Syco Entertainment) to create the show.
The show will be similar to the X Factor, with DJs competing for a record deal with Sony Music and a headline spot at a major music festival. Public voting for the contest will take place on Tumblr (Why? because Yahoo acquired Tumblr about a year ago if you forgot).
While our favorite DJs aren’t very happy with it right now, I’d be interested in trying an episode or two of the show. Who knows, maybe they won’t just be mixing songs, but are actually talented DJs just looking to get noticed with their fresh new sounds!
