Lebanese superstar Ragheb Alama laughed off rumors about him replacing Iraqi star Kazem el Saher on The Voice Kids Arabia, saying that they aren't true, and added that he read the claims online and found them to be "quite funny."

Alama told Al Arabiya news that "if Kazem was to quit The Voice Kids, it would be a terrible loss for the show." 

But even if Alama was to become Kazem's replacement, he's no stranger to reality TV talent competitions anyway. Ragheb sat on the panel of Arab Idol for years, before moving on to The X Factor Arabia's panel.

The 54-year-old singer expressed his fondness of Kazem's work, revealing that he's thinking of using one of his compositions in one of his new songs.

As for the female star Ragheb is a fan of, that would be Lebanese superstar Elissa of course, who he said is thinking of making a duet with in the near future.
