Talents shows have recently popped up as a phenomenon around the world, and the phenomenon has hit the Arab world in less than 10 years. Arab channels started to compete among each others and the most recent show that captivated the region is Arab Idol.
For those who were following these shows, you’d realise already that Arab Idol on MBC is the same show that used to be named Superstar which was aired on the Lebanese channel Future TV. It turned out that the talents they’re introducing to us as “new” talents are a big lie. Most of them are professional singers who had their shots before but lacked media support or attention. I’m neither against those singers nor saying that they’re bad. The concept I’m highlighting is how these channels are fooling the Arab audience and they don’t have credibility.
New TV spotted the light on this game during the show Lel Nasher “للنشر” which is presented by Tony Khalife. Check out the video below..
