They not only have to impress American judges, but will also need to break through the "wall of the world," featuring 50 of the world's most accomplished experts from every field of entertainment. Only one act will ultimately be crowned THE WORLD'S BEST.

This will be the first and only series where talent from all over the globe takes the stage in front of three American judges and 50 world experts," said Darnell, who is also president of Unscripted and Alternative Television for Warner Bros.
