RuPaul is taking his judging skills to a different reality show competition.

Deadline reports that RuPaul is board as a judge for “The World’s Best,” a new reality talent show for CBS. He will be joined by fellow judges Drew Barrymore and Faith Hill.

James Corden is set to host and executive produce the series.

Deadline describes the show as “a first-of-its-kind global talent competition that features acts from every genre imaginable, from every corner of the planet. 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. The winning act will ultimately be crowned The World’s Best.”

“It’s only fitting that The World’s Best perform in front of the world’s best,” CBS’ SVP Alternative Programming for CBS Sharon Vuong said in a statement. “James, Drew, Faith and RuPaul are all amazing talents who have excelled in their respective fields on a global scale. We can’t wait for them to bring their distinct voices to a show that’s unlike any other.”

The 10-episode season premieres in 2019.
