Simon Cowell is creating a new reality show that will focus on finding the nation’s best unsigned rock band, according to The Daily Mirror in Britain.
Supermodel Kate Moss, who recently signed a business agreement with Cowell and his new business partner, Sir Philip Green , will be one of the judges on the show, which will debut in the U.S. before a version is done in Cowell’s native U.K.
The show will be a cross between two other Cowell shows, the report says, "America’s Got Talent," and "X-Factor." The latter is similar to "American Idol" except groups are elegible. Depending when the show gets on-air, Cowell will not likely be a judge on the show himself, especially if he signs a new deal with "Idol." His current "Idol" contract expires after this season.
We’re not exactly sure what this means, but according to the Mirror, a source said that Supermodel “Kate is absolutely cock-a-hoop about her move into TV."
"Idol" is clearly more pop oriented than rock. The best a real rocker has done on the show was Chris Daughtry, who made it to the final four before being voted off the show.
