Global superstars including Arab film and TV queen Takla Chamoun, Star Academy Arabia singer Léa Makhoul and Hollywood comedian Ahmed Ahmed have teamed up to find the next generation of talents.
They’re the judges behind the brand new Omneeyat Loves Talent competition, which aims to find up-and-coming singers, actors, and comics in the Middle East.
The online show is open to contestants aged 16 and above and is going to be broadcast across the Middle East. Not only that but the show will be hosted by Middle East TV star Jad Bou Karam of OHMYJAD fame.
Omneeyat Loves Talent will be split into three categories: Singers, Actors and Comics. Each category will have its own devoted Talent Masters who will help narrow down the competition until there’s just one lucky winner in each category.
Audition format, prizes and Talent Masters
Once candidates from the MENA region have completed their online registration, they will need to submit their audition.
Contestants need to send a 2-3 minute video of their song, monologue/movie scene or comedy sketch of their choice.
Once contestants have made it past the audition, they’ll progress to the Talent Playoffs before the Semi Final and Final rounds.
And there is more where that came from. There will be some incredible prizes on offer including Lebanese Film Academy workshop in Lebanon, comedy shows in Dubai and Los Angeles, music videos, PR campaigns and much more.
Each round will involve a special challenge designed to test the contestants’ flexibility, skills, and talent. And, just like real life, the challenges will get tougher as the contest progresses.
All three rounds will be judged by the Talent Masters. Using their scores alongside public votes, the winners of each stage will be announced live on TV and via social media until there’s just one winner under each category.
