Recap: 'Arabs Got Talent' Season 3, Episode 7!
Last night's episode of Arabs Got Talent was in full swing as acts gave their best efforts for a chance to move forward from the semi finals and onto the finals.
The judges looked buzzing and ready to get go in the first Live show of the talent show. Although judge Najwa Karam was still grieving the death of her father, she thanked fans for their support and gave her best at judging the gifted acts.
The show kicked off with a performance by Bollywood superstar Kareena Kapoor, who looked dazzling in a pink and silver costume. The rendition was to announce the launch of new TV channel MBC Bollywood, which will fulfill your appetite for any Indian TV dramas or movies you're craving to watch. All shows will be dubbed in Arabic.
According to Alarabiya, this is MBC's 14th channel, which will air tonight and broadcast across the Middle East and North Africa, the company said.
It was then the turn of the first eight semi-finalists to take onto the stage, and to, literally, perform for their lives.
First up was Moroccan act “Fareeq Al Tahaddi” (Challenge Team), who gave a musical/instrumental performance inspired by Tunisian art. And boy, what a performance it was.
Next up was fierce Egyptian rapper Mayyam Mahmoud, who rapped about some of the realities Egyptian women have to face on a daily basis. She received Najwa's seal of approval on her choice of topics.
Shortly after, it was judge Naser Al Qasabi who was applauding the romantic dance performance by husband and wife Duo Miri. At the end of their little number, Naser gleefully said: “Love makes miracles.”
The audience and judges couldn't stop laughing when it was Kuwaiti group “Sheyyaab's” turn to perform. With a mixture of comedy and dancing, they were sure to capture the hearts of everyone watching.
Contestant Samer Bou Khaza'a was back for a second handing of his famous “backwards keyboard playing.” Unfortunately, the judges didn't think his performance was as fascinating as his first audition was.
Palestinian folklore dance group “Al Koofeyyeh” took the judges previous advice into consideration and delivered a performance worthy of winning the AGT title.
In his second appearance on the AGT stage, Ahmad Mohammad Habshi appeared as a puppet that comes to life in a series or comedic dance and singing performances. Let us tell you, this kid has some serious talent.
But it was Palestinian Mohammad Al Dairi who wowed everyone with his artistic skills. With only a chisel in hand, he worked his way through removing parts of an oversized board of cork, covered in a layer of white paint, only to reveal the image of the late legendary Lebanese singer Wadih El Safi. What a beautiful tribute to a wonderful man.
Who survived the votes and moved onto the finals? Callers gave the highest votes to Kuwaiti group “Sheyyaab,” while the judges saved Palestinian Mohammad Al Dairi.
Did you vote? And who else would you like to see in the finals?
