It is the world's first global talent show, a show that will represent every country throughout the world, and there will be a selection of categories, raging from make up artists,Photographers, musicians, athletes.

It actually sounds very interesting, and also it is all completely screened via the internet.

tbf its obvious who's going to win. A Large amout of people won't find photography entertaining, cooking maybe but highly unlikely. Its basically another variety show but on a larger scale with it being most likely that a singer is going to win.

If the voting goes to the general public on this show I guarantee that the Zoella, Marcus Butler, Alfie group will win everything.

Surely Simon can't be serious?!!

All his TV shows have become flops in the battle of TV ratings. I doubt people will give a fig on his latest project.

His current TV show "Food Glorious Food" has been a culinary disaster and I hear the ratings for this show stands to be around 2.7m and that's not good enough.

I like the idea of a world talent show, and the fact that it would not be on TV, but mixing all type of talent seems weird...

I think it might have been a good idea to wait untill X factor is over (which is likely soon) to try for a worldwide singing competition on the Internet -that's a really good idea IMHO, how many people watch X factor/the voice/American Idol online anyway because it's not available in their country or they have missed it?

More information on the new show...

TV and music mogul Simon Cowell is to launch a global talent search online allowing people to show off remarkable skills - with video auditions on YouTube.
The X Factor boss's company Syco is teaming up with the site to enable people to show off talents which may not be recognised by traditional TV shows, such as make-up artists or doing trick shots
The You Generation contest - expected to launch in late March - will continue for at least a year and will seek out a different skill each fortnight with each vying for an "amazing prize".

An overall winner after the first 52 weeks will be given a further reward.
The contest will extend across 26 territories, taking in the UK and Ireland, the US, Russia and much of south east Asia, with entries made simply by uploading a video, and all competing together.
There are likely to be searches for talents such as TV presenting, singing and cooking over the months.

Cowell is already exploring food with his new ITV show Food Glorious Food which launched this week.
Cowell has been keen to harness the power of YouTube after seeing how popular performances of his shows have been on the video-sharing site.

Susan Boyle, runner-up on Britain's Got Talent in 2009, had more than 500 million YouTube views for her performance on the show. And One Direction, signed up by Cowell after being formed on the 2010 X Factor, have been seen more than 800 million times on the site.

A panel of experts, tailored to each two-weekly contest, will be assembled to choose the top entrants, and winners will have their efforts highlighted on the YouTube channel.
Contestants have been able to audition via YouTube for Cowell's TV shows, although they have then had to take part in a live audition. His new venture will be fully online.

Cowell's company said: "The channel offers people with unconventional and original talents the opportunity to have their talent recognised by the world and become the next internet star."
Announcing the launch today, Syco and YouTube called it "a new worldwide entertainment concept".

They said You Generation would be "the first global audition process", adding that people would have "the chance to show off their outstanding skills and win amazing prizes - simply by uploading a video".

A promo video featuring Cowell was going live this afternoon at www.youtube.com/yougeneration.

Anyone remember that Global Pop Idol thing that was on TV a few years ago? You only have to see the Eurovision to see how different countries are in tastes and fashion.

I'm confused I thought Simon's already done one of these global competitions and said he didn't actually like it...so why's he doing another one?

I think people are being too quick to go "Ugh, another Simon Cowell show" here. The concept is actually quite interesting I think. Though I'll reserve actual judgement until I see how the execution is I guess.

If that happened to me I'd probably punch him in the face.

Imo I think it's pointless. Why would he even need another TALENT SHOW? Even if it's online, still...
does he own anything other than talent shows
