MBC took over The X Factor from CBC and the program just had its first episode and held a press conference in Dubai. The slick Mazen Hayek was there talking about their upcoming program. The event even had a guest band form the UK who won the British 2011 X Factor.
There will be bands and covers of foreign songs. You can be 8 years old or 80, it does not matter. This season has three not four judges, Elissa kept her chair, Ragheb Alama returns to these shows, Donia Samir Ghanem has a new chair. Ragheb is talking about his show and his friends. He is a savvy marketer and MBC is happy about it.
Maybe this will mange not to be the most boring show ever, or the show that the judges had little chemistry. Watch their press conference. This would be the fifth show, can people of the Arab world get a break? Too many shows, too many young people with big promises and little to do.
