The first live episode of the Arab world’s number one talent show, Arabs Got Talent, kicked off its third season on the same night as the official launch of the new MBC Bollywood Channel.
Karina Kapoor, one of India’s most loved and multi-talented actresses, performed during the opening, supported by her artistic group of dancers.
Karina performed dance and theatrical performances well-known to Indian culture.
MBC Bollywood is the 14th channel to be added to the MBC Group’s rich array of channels.
A total of 8 exceptional acts performed on stage in front of the Arabs Got Talent jury and millions of viewers hoping to qualify for the finals. However, only the first act, “The Sheyyab” group from Kuwait, acquired the most audience and viewers’ votes at the end of the evening and was automatically qualified to the finals.
Moreover, all four members of the jury unanimously agreed to choose “Mohamed Al-Diri” from Palestine to qualify to the finals, based on his exceptional wall carving act, which resulted in a beautiful piece of art dedicated to the memory of the late legendary Lebanese singer, Wadih Al-Safi.
The show witnessed two acts going through to the finals at the end of the show and the other six were sent home.
