Simon Cowell launching DJ competition

Music mogul Simon Cowell is set to expand his reality TV roster by launching a contest for DJs.

The X Factor boss announced the competition in 2012 but it fell through after a deal with Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's company Overbook Entertainment went sour.


Cowell's company Syco confirmed this week (begs28Apr14) that it has signed a new deal to create Ultimate DJ, which will search for the world's best music mixer.


The show will launch online, and wannabe DJs will submit recordings that fans can vote for on via social media, according to a report by New York Post gossip column Page Six.
