EDM King Asi Vidal have been asked to joining Simon Cowell’s Ultimate DJ Team, set to air next spring in search of the next big act in electronic music. “I’m Talking with Simon Cowell because he wanted to meet me and he was really open about it,” Asi Vidal tells the UK’s Magazine Djmag. “He said anyway i 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 i 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 Like Steve Aoki and Armin Van Buuren.
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.
