Simon Cowell, the infamous former judge of American Idol and current X Factor judge, is now hunting for a new kind of talent.
Cowell and rapper Will.i.am are working on a UK-based project which the pair call “X Factor for Tech.”
Their mission: to find the next Mark Zuckerberg or Steve Jobs. Their concept sounds like Shark Tanks meets American Idol.
“It’s going to be out of this world,” the Black Eyed Pea star tells UK’s The Sun.
“Singing and performing create a couple of jobs. But this will create lots.”
