"The World's Best"
Premieres Sunday, February 3 following Super Bowl LII on CBS
 
          A group of celebrated international experts, along with American judges Drew Barrymore, RuPaul Charles and Faith Hill, will help determine via vote who ultimately wins the new global competition series THE WORLD’S BEST.

          Hosted by Emmy Award winner James Corden, the series is a one-of-a-kind talent competition featuring elite acts from around the globe competing for a $1 million prize and the title. The acts not only have to impress the all-star line-up of American judges Drew Barrymore, RuPaul Charles and Faith Hill, but they will also need to break through the “wall of the world,” featuring more than 50 renowned experts from 38 different countries.

          A wall of the world will be comprised of experts from every field of entertainment, from Bollywood to ballet, K-Pop to comedy, martial arts to magic, and everything in between. These experts not only have fervent followings in their home countries but, in many cases, internationally, and will offer feedback during every round of the competition and be responsible for helping to decide which act is ultimately crowned.
