Only one act will ultimately be crowned the World’s Best.
Emmy Award-winning James Cordon will take on hosting duties, and is also an Executive Producer of the show, whilst the American judges consist of Golden Globe Award winner Drew Barrymore, Emmy Award winner RuPaul Charles and Grammy Award winner Faith Hill.
The 10 episode series hails from two of the most prolific unscripted producers in television, Mike Darnell (“American Idol” and “Ellen’s Game of Games”) and Mark Burnett (SURVIVOR, “The Voice”).
The show will premiere immediately following the Super Bowl LIII on Sunday, Feb. 3, 2019 on CBS.
