Fatboy Slim Insults Simon Cowell Over Upcoming TV Show For DJs

Fatboy SlimFatboy Slim has revealed that a number of high-profile DJs were approached by Simon Cowell for his new talent show.

The X Factor mastermind has recently been developing the reality show Ultimate DJ to find the next superstar DJ, but Fatboy Slim – real name Norman Cook – argued that the format wouldn’t translate well to television.

“Simon Cowell was talking about doing a show and everyone in the business, he kind of started approaching us, and we were like, ‘F**k off. No – that’s a terrible idea! That’s the good thing about dance music; it grows organically through drunk people late at night coming up with stupid ideas. It’s not something that can be scripted or transported into a TV studio.”

He continued: “I get offered loads of TV shows and they’re like, ‘Can you perform for five minutes?’ But DJ-ing takes two hours and an audience. It’s not like you can go out there and sing your latest song. Because of that, it will always remain slightly outside the mainstream. At the end of the day, it’s about taking a big bunch of high people and trying to get them higher, which you can’t do on TV.”
