In a move that is sure to leave dance music fans around the world reeling, Simon Cowell’s upcoming TV reality show, Ultimate DJ, has been cancelled before its first episode, Variety reports.
The show, which would have seen up-and-coming dance music DJs compete against each for a spot at a major electronic music festival, plus a contract with Sony Records subsidiary Ultra Records, was culled by Yahoo, who decided to pull the plug on their original programming after concluding that the company couldn’t turn a profit. Syco–Cowell’s production company–did not comment on the cancellation.
Heartbroken? Don’t worry, we’ve come up with 11 other shows that we’d rather watch anyway.
