The host of RuPaul’s Drag Race, RuPaul Charles, has joined a star studded list of celebrities on a brand new reality talent show.
RuPaul will headline the global talent show, The World’s Best, alongside Faith Hill, Drew Barrymore and James Corden, Deadline reported.
Corden will host the 10 episode show which producers described as ‘a first-of-its-kind global talent competition’. Acts from around the world will perform across genres in front of the three American judges, Barrymore, Hill and Charles.
If the acts impress the judges they then have to break through the ‘wall of the world’. The wall will include 50 of the world’s best experts from different areas of entertainment.
The winning act will then be crowned The World’s Best.
Charles joins the cast as Drag Race continues its upward trajectory of success. Its recent 10th season was its most successful ever and has won four Primetime Emmys. Charles also made history this when Drag Race became the first show to win for Best Reality Host and Best Reality Show at the Emmys.
The World’s Best
‘It’s only fitting that The World’s Best perform in front of the world’s best,’ Sharon Vuong, CBS’ SVP, Alternative Programming for CBS told Deadline.
‘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.’
Barrymore expressed her excitement at joining the show and working alongside the other judges.
‘Best team! Most wonderful group! Can’t love being apart of this more. I said I was born to do this. All my life and love of pop culture, world travel and admiration of the arts for over 40 years! And now I get to be a part of this,’ Barrymore wrote on Instagram.
‘This is a glimpse of the extraordinary around the world.
‘This is also just fun! And we need that. And we need to celebrate one another.
But to be in the company of @j_corden @rupaulofficial @faithhill is simply a dream come true. They are the most talented and likable, creative, cool, kind people and have earned their place in the world by years of being incredible in their fields. I am honored to stand next to them.’
