The young Egyptian Carmen, winner of Arab Idol, is still fresh in our collective talent-show memory. Only a fortnight after, hard on the heels of Arab Idol hysteria, comes the next installment of Arab talent-fodder, 'Arabs Got Talent'. This should plug the gap left by the end of Arab Idol for the weekend viewers.

Egypt Takes All?

Last year's winner was Egypt's poetic street artist, talent Amr Katamash. Arab Idol produced an Egyptian champion too in Carmen Suleiman. Will we see a different Arab country make its talented mark this time round?

 

Will this year's Arabs Got Talent deliver the goods that the debut season from 2011 did? And do you think it will make better viewing than Arab Idol? Have your say, Arab-kind, or otherwise!
