RuPaul Will Judge “The World’s Best” on New CBS Talent Competition Series

Judgey Judy!

RuPaul is about to park his heels behind a new judges’ table.

CBS has announced The World’s Best, a new global talent competition series that will feature acts from “every genre imaginable, from every corner of the planet.” Joining RuPaul on the judges panel will be Late Late Show host James Corden, Drew Barrymore, and country superstar, Faith Hill.

Not only will the contestants have to impress these four powerhouses, but they will also have to break through the “wall of the world” a panel consisting of 50 of the world’s “most accomplished experts from every field of entertainment.”

“It’s only fitting that The World’s Best perform in front of the world’s best,” said Sharon Vuong, CBS’ SVP, Alternative Programming for CBS. “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.”

The World’s Best is set to premiere in 2019, and will be produced by Mark Burnett and Mike Darnell, who are behind two of the biggest talent competition series in television history, The Voice and American Idol.

We love more Ru on our TVs, but we do have to admit it will be strange to see him sit behind a judges’ table without Michelle Visage by his side.

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
