Simon Cowell's DJ talent show to premiere on Yahoo

The weekly programme will launch at some point this year

Simon Cowell's dreaded American DJ competition show has shockingly been given a home. If you're not already clued up on the soon-to-launch Ultimate DJ, produced by the smarmy music mogul, it's basically going to be the X-Factor for DJs.

Apparently Yahoo's set to premiere the programme on its online streaming platform Yahoo Screen, which will also see other daily streams from Live Nation music events airing on the platform. Put together with US events company SFX Entertainment, sources close to Yahoo are saying it'll air weekly and mix pre-recorded elements with live performances, while they reckon Tumblr will be the place to vote.

The concept hasn't gone down too well with Fatboy Slim, who turned down a chance to be a judge on the show in 2013 and apparently said "fuck off" to the "terrible idea" when approached about it. Nice one, Norm.
