On Super Bowl Sunday, CBS will premiere its new competition series “The World’s Best.”

Hosted by James Corden, the show will feature Drew Barrymore, RuPaul Charles and Faith Hill as judges.

It will also feature a “wall of the world” expert panel, consisting of noteworthy names from all realms of entertainment.

In a Thursday press release, CBS revealed who will sit on that expert panel.

“From Nigeria to Japan, from Switzerland to Samoa, our 50 world experts bring a true global presence to our stage,” said executive producer and showrunner Alison Holloway. “Among them are champions, award-winners, international TV judges and even superstars in their native lands. They are knowledgeable, honest and, at times, outrageous. They bring an entirely fresh perspective to the talent show landscape.”
