Darnell said in a statement, "The very name of the show defined the caliber of judges we sought out and ultimately got. Drew, RuPaul and Faith are incredibly accomplished superstars whose talents encompass every area of entertainment, along with James... [who is] an absolute force of nature, and his versatility, passion and showmanship are unrivaled."
The World's Best will feature elite acts from around the globe representing every genre imaginable. According to Burnett, "this groundbreaking series is like the Olympics of talent shows."
In order to advance in the competition, each act must not only impress RuPaul, Hill, and Barrymore, but the performer or performers must also captivate the "wall of the world" comprised of 50 experts in every field of entertainment.
In the end, only one act will be crowned champion.
"It's only fitting that The World's Best perform in front of the world's best," CBS executive Sharon Vuong said in a statement.
"James, Drew, Faith and RuPaul are all amazing talents who have excelled in their respective fields on a global scale. We can't wait for them to bring their distinct voices to a show that's unlike any other."
In 2016, Corden hosted The 70th Annual Tony Awards. He also hosted the Grammy Awards in 2017 and 2018.
Barrymore has starred in Never Been Kissed, 50 First Dates, The Wedding Singer and more. RuPaul has produced and hosted RuPaul's Drag Race since 2009. And Hill is one of the top-selling female vocalists of all time with major pop-country hits including "This Kiss," "Breathe," and "The Way You Love Me."
