THE WORLD'S BEST on CBS Announces International Experts

CBS today announced the group of celebrated international experts who, along with American judges Drew Barrymore, RuPaul Charles and Faith Hill, will help determine via vote who ultimately wins the new global competition series THE WORLD'S BEST.

Hosted by Emmy Award winner James Corden, the series is a one-of-a-kind talent competition featuring elite acts from around the globe competing for a $1 million prize and the title of THE WORLD'S BEST. The acts not only have to impress the all-star line-up of American judges Drew Barrymore, RuPaul Charles and Faith Hill, but they will also need to break through the "wall of the world," featuring more than 50 renowned experts from 38 different countries.

The "wall of the world" is comprised of experts from every field of entertainment, from Bollywood to ballet, K-Pop to comedy, martial arts to magic, and everything in between. These experts not only have fervent followings in their home countries but, in many cases, internationally, and 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.

"From Nigeria to Japan, from Switzerland to Samoa, our 50 world experts bring a true global presence to our stage," said executive producer and showrunner Alison Holloway. "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 series, from two of the most prolific unscripted producers in television, Mike Darnell ("American Idol" and "Ellen's Game of Games") and Mark Burnett (SURVIVOR, "The Voice"), premieres immediately following SUPER BOWL LIII on Sunday, Feb. 3 on CBS. The second episode will air on Wednesday, Feb. 6 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
