The world can add another singing competition to it's roster, and this time the talent is from YouTube.
Ludacris will host the new show "Best.Cover.Ever" and Ryan Seacrest is acting as an executive producer. Here's how the show works, a team will filter through thousands of song covers; leaving the track’s actual artist to then pick two finalists who’ll then compete on the series to win the grand prize.
Hollywood Unlocked was able to talk to the shows host, Ludacris,
“When you get to a certain place in the industry, you want to create avenues and opportunities for other artists the same way that I had.”
In addition, the rap veteran explains that he’s most interested in seeing the versatility of the artists; essentially how they can alter and create their own renditions of various songs.
“You could have a rap song and somebody change it into a country song, and an EDM song and somebody change it into an R&B song.”
Ryan Seacrest and Ludacris aren't the only big names, Ludacris says we can expect to see other celebrities such as Demi Lovato, Katy Perry, Keith Urban, and Backstreet Boys.
