American Idol is currently in its 13th season. The celebrity judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. will chair the latest season.
As for America's Got Talent, the eighth season of the show will appear on Zee Cafe, followed by the ninth season that will premiere in India on Zee Café. The show will see actor Howie Mandel, radio personality Howard Stern, former Spice Girl Melanie Brown and super model Heidi Klum take to the judging panel once again.
The latest season of The X-Factor, another music reality show, will also be telecast. Its panel will include Simon Cowell, singer and actor Paulina Rubio, former Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland and songstress Demi Lovato.
Anurag Bedi, EVP and business head, Zee Café, said, "These shows are synonymous with entertainment and unarguably amongst the biggest reality shows on television. Having seen the affinity the audience here has for reality shows, we are confident that these shows will be amongst the biggest shows of 2014 and will strengthen Zee Cafe's leadership position in the English entertainment genre."
