SIMON Cowell is bringing musical competitions back to our screens with a brand new show, Walk The Line.
The music mogul is BACK with the new singing show – and it all starts tonight.
What is Walk The Line?
Walk The Line is Cowell's latest TV game show, produced by his own company, Syco Entertainment, and ITV Productions.
The concept of the new programme is sure to appeal to fans of The X Factor.
During the series, a range of musical acts, including soloists, choirs and bands, will be competing for a £500,000 prize.
Each show will introduce a high-stake dilemma to contestants.
The two acts judged the best will have to decide whether they cash out of the competition or Walk The Line to move to the next stage of the competition.

Who are the Walk The Line judges?
Despite Cowell's scathing comments on The X Factor making him a household name, the star is taking a very different role this time around.
He has decided to step back from the judging panel, despite initially hoping to head it, and will be acting as a producer.
Instead, the judging panel will be made up of Take That star Gary Barlow, Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon, actress and comedian Dawn French and legendary DJ Craig David.
What is the prize for winning Walk The Line?
The winners of the game show will get a £500,000 prize.
Cowell said: "We wanted to develop a show which will give the contestants a life-changing cash prize if they win."
Talent will therefore not be enough, as contestants will obviously need nerves of steel to Walk The Line.
