CBS has revealed the identities of the group of international experts who will join The World's Best judges Drew Barrymore, RuPaul Charles, and Faith Hill in helping determine who wins the new global talent competition series.
Hosted by James Corden, The World's Bestwill premiere immediately after the network's broadcast of Super Bowl LIII on Sunday, February 3 and feature elite acts from around the globe representing every genre imaginable.
According to The World's Best executive producer Mark Burnett, the new America's Got Talent-like reality competition aims to be "the Olympics of talent shows."
In order to advance on The World's Best, each act will have to not only impress Hill, Charles, and Barrymore, but also captivate the "Wall of the World" comprised of 54 experts in every field of entertainment.
The "Wall of the World" features experts from 38 different countries and every field of entertainment -- from Bollywood to ballet, K-Pop to comedy, martial arts to magic, and everything in between.
The experts -- who not only have fervent followings in their home countries but, in many cases, internationally -- will offer feedback during every round of the competition and be responsible for helping to decide which act is ultimately crowned The World's Best's champion.
"From Nigeria to Japan, from Switzerland to Samoa, our 50 world experts bring a true global presence to our stage," The World's Best executive producer and showrunner Alison Holloway said.
"Among them are champions, award-winners, international TV judges and even superstars in their native lands. They are knowledgeable, honest and, at times, outrageous. They bring an entirely fresh perspective to the talent show landscape."
The World's Best will air over ten episodes and conclude with the competition's champion being crowned on its finale on Wednesday, March 20 at 9PM ET/PT.
The World's Best's second and third episodes will air in the Wednesdays at 8PM ET/PT timeslot on February 6 and February 13, after which the show will move to the Wednesdays at 9PM ET/PT timeslot for the reminder of its broadcast run.
