SInce The Voice took the Middle East by storm last year , the region’s TV talent show fans have been left hungry for more. Without the celebrity spats, fierce competition, glamorous outfits and untapped talent, gossip in the Arab celebosphere has run dry. But 2013 has brought with it not one but two talent shows to tantalise viewers taste-buds and give the region’s gossipers something to talk about again. This February, Arab Idol  and X Factor have returned to screens bigger and better than ever before and with both ready to do what it takes to rake in the ratings and be named the viewers’ favorite, the war is on!Having scoured the region for the best talent the Mideast has to offer, TV giants MBC  and Rotana  have blown their budgets on flashy advertising campaigns and glitzy sets. But their main weapons come in the form of their celeb panels. With the likes of Elissa and Nancy fighting for either side, this talent show ratings war looks set to be a dirty one!
