NBC's "Superstars of Dance"
As creator and executive producer of the mega-hit television series "American Idol" and founder/CEO of 19 Entertainment Ltd., Simon Fuller is recognized as one of the most influential leaders in the entertainment and music industry today. Fuller has successfully branded over 100 unique versions of the Idol series throughout the world and launched the careers of Idol superstars Carrie Underwood, Chris Daughtry, David Cook and Jordin Sparks, to name just a few.
Over the course of twenty years, Simon Fuller has built a long roster of major recording artists and top international talent, including Annie Lennox, sports legend David Beckham, Claudia Schiffer, and The Spice Girls. He has managed the largest-selling music acts in the U.S. for the last three years, and in May 2008, Billboard Magazine crowned Fuller the "most successful British music manager of all time," with an astonishing 116 million units sold in North America alone. With over 500 number one singles globally and more than 240 number one albums, Fuller tops the list of British music managers, leading a field which includes Peter Grant (Led Zeppelin, Bad Company) and Beatles manager Brian Epstein.
Fuller was also recently honored by British Prime Minster Gordon Brown and H.R.H. Prince Charles for his not-for-profit organization and Emmy Award-winning TV event "Idol Gives Back." The groundbreaking foundation and television special has raised nearly 140 million dollars for poverty-stricken families and disadvantaged children throughout the world.
