The Word: Simon Cowell to launch ‘Afghanistan’s Got Talent’
Infrastructure. Stability. Honest politicians. These are all things Afghanistan hasn’t got. But there’s good news: One thing it has got, according to Simon Cowell, is talent.
Fremantle Media and Simon Cowell’s production company SyCo Entertainment will launch “Afghanistan’s Got Talent” this fall. It will be the 55th local edition of the “[Nation]‘s Got Talent” franchise, which they claim is a record for a reality show, according to Deadline.
The show will feature a panel of Afghan celebrity judges, but foreign troops may be eligible to audition. It seems possible that the U.S. military might have some objections to that, right? Also, who’s the Simon Cowell of Afghanistan? And more importantly, who’s the Paula Abdul of Afghanistan?
