by international i mean a world wide talent search .

the show could have a few different catogories

over 25s girls and boys
under 25s
male groups
female groups
mixed groups
acts with instruments

the judges could be

simon cowell[usa]
maybe danni [aus]
chery cole [uk]
an african judge
a spanish speaking judge and
1 other

they could all be either on the panel or take it in turns to judge their own territory.
it could be like an international eurovision

what do you think?it needs to be a world talent. in my opinion

No, but they could do one with English only (US, UK, CA, AUS, NZ, S.Africa)

How do you get round the time differences? To work surely it has to be live ( otherwise it leaks on the net) and the USA is 5 -8 hours behind the UK ( or vide versa depending on where you are)

Eurovision needs a makeover. So many countries want it so a world vision would be welcomed.
Simon could take the winner of xf around the world and create a world contest around it.

Lots of this years contestants on esc came from idol,voice or xf so its already started.

The only issue IMO would be the broadcasting time, but if you kept it at english speaking countries, it could work in theory...

They could even add a new voting stage to select 1 (or more) contestant per country after the equivalent of a bootcamp & judge's houses for each country -to make sure that each country gets represented...

But the broadcasting issue is a big one... Some people would get the show live while other country wouldn't, the voting time would have to be ajusted too...

On the plus side: you might launch a truly international career (or more than 1) thanks to a show like that
