Simon planning 'World Idol' show featuring each country's 'Pop Idol' show winner

By Reality TV World staff, 07/29/2002 

The BBC reports that Simon Fuller, the creator of the successful Pop Idol franchise, is planning to make the TV show into a global talent contest by pitting the winners of different countries against each other. Fuller is working on a show provisionally titled World Idol, following the success of Pop Idol around the globe.

He told Billboard magazine that the show would be an Olympics-style contest with the winners competing against each other. "My intention is that the whole world will vote, and we'll work the voting system so that the population of the country will be fair and proportional to the votes the contestants receive," he said.
