The X Factor has been around for years now and continues to discover stars while rival shows come and go without any real impact. However, it appears that The X Factor is set to get a new rival television show which will be hosted by former N-Dubz star Fazer. The show is set to see underprivileged youngsters audition for a place in an urban orchestra.
Fazer explained, to The Mirror, “I'll put together people that wouldn't necessarily get the opportunity to perform in a prestigious place, or even with a full orchestra, and create an urban orchestra which will really set me up for my tour next year.”
Fazer also admitted that he was hoping to make a show that is so amazing that people will feel privileged to have watched it. “It's gonna be something to watch. At the end of the show, I want to be able to say, like in Gladiator 'Are you not entertained? Are you not entertained?’” he added.
The show is set to be called Fazer’s Urban Orchestra and is believed to begin shooting at the start of 2013. Meanwhile, Fazer released his debut solo single Killer on Sunday 26 August.
