New Competition for American Idol From Idol Creator Simon Fuller

The creator and executive producer of American Idol, Simon Fuller is always on the hunt for The Next Big Thing.

His company, 19 Entertainment, has just signed a deal with Tricky Stewart’s RedZone Entertainment to search out the world for “new vocal talent.”

Wait a minute.

Isn’t that what American Idol does?

Stewart is the producer of Rihanna’s Umbrella and Beyonce’s Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It).

The two music moguls are forming a new company to make sure that no Kris Allen, Adam Lambert or Susan Boyle ever goes undiscovered.
