Following his very public exit from Arab Idol, Lebanese superstar Ragheb Alama will soon be back to judge a rival talent competition show.
Sources within MBC Group confirmed that Alama is joining The X Factor Arabia Season 2, reported Tayyar.org.
MBC TV has purchased the copyrights to televise the series on their channels. Ironically, they televise Arab Idol as well.
But who will be taking a seat next to Ragheb this time around? Word has it that the three remaining judges are yet to be selected. However, Ragheb's opinion will play a big role in who's chosen for the judging panel. Bet Ahlam won't be one of them!
Carole Samaha, Wael Kfoury, Elissa and Hussain Al Jasmi were the judges on Season 1.
