After watching the evaluations, I think Mohamad A is the best from this series. He doesn't have the best voice, but he is really good overall. I also like Basel and Mahmoud, for me the 2 best singers this season and Miral who made a good evaluation.

My 3 nominess will be Rayan for sure, he was really bad and I think is the worst singer. Mohamad R was pretty boring and either Sultan or Abdul Aziz, maybe Abdul Aziz who don't have a great voice and was really boring too. But I think one of the girls is going to be up for eviction too.

Only 4 contestans sang in English, if you want to see them here I put some links to waleg with their evaluations:

Mahdi: "Yellow" -> http://www.waleg.com/videos/archives/018720.html
Miral: "I feel like a woman" -> http://www.waleg.com/videos/archives/018739.html
Jack: "Pretty woman" -> http://www.waleg.com/videos/archives/018733.html
Mahmoud: "Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone" -> http://www.waleg.com/videos/archives/018738.html

I think its pretty cool that the Arab world is so open to a show like Star Academy. I personally hope that they get to a point in their society that they one day can try BB out again.

I think the mistake they did about Big Brother, is where they located the house.

The Star Academy's house is in Lebanon, one of the most open-mind country in the Arab World, while the BB's house was in Bahrain, one of the most closed-mind country in Arab World. I'm pretty sure that if they did BB's house in Lebanon or Morocco or Tunisia, it wouldn't be suspended.

Because there aren't any differences between SA and BB. SA also have 24/7 live feeds, with cam in the bedrooms, and the only part which is not shown is the bathroom, like BB

And the first nominees are:



Jack (Lebanon), Salwa (Morocco) and Aline (Lebanon)

Well, there weren't my favourites, but they weren't the worst last night. I can't believe Rayan is not up for eviction, he was the worst by far  :o

I think one of the 2 girls will be out.

More information about the noms. The 6 members of the jury, who are actually the teachers of the Academy, voted for their 3 nominees. The 3 with most votes are up for evictoon

MARY (Singer Instructor): Aline, Salwa and Jack
KHALIL (Singer Instructor): Zeina, Aline and Jack
ELISSAR (Dance Instructor): Jack, Tahra and Badria
FOUD (Supervisor): Aline, Mehdi and Miral
MICHEL J (Drama Instructor): Aline, Sultan and Rayan
MICHEL F (Music Instructor): Haitham, Salwa and Jack

Aline and Jack = 4
Salwa = 2
Badria, Haitham, Mehdi, Miral, Rayan, Sultan, Tahra and Zeina = 1

So Aline and Jack with 4 votes and Salwa with 1 vote are up for eviction

I'm so glad that Rayan received one vote, at least I'm not the only one who think that he was the worst  :P

I really love this show, and the Arabic season is one of the best, they had many talented singers and the "reality side" is pretty good too.

The US had Star Academy, called "The One: Making a Music Star". It got canceled after two weeks, though, Probably because of how it was probably considered so close to American Idol.

Syesha Mercado was a contestant in this season, didn't she?

US is really hard for some international shows, specially the ones with 24/7 live feeds.

And the new nominees are:

MEHDI (3rd time), RANIA (1st time) and TAHRA (3rd time)

I hope Rania can survive this, she is the best out of this 3, and she deserves a 2nd chance. But it won't be easy for her. I don't think the public will save her  :-\

Who nominated who:

ELISSAR = Badriya, Tahra and Abdul Aziz
FOUD = Mehdi, Mohammad A and Bassel
KHALIL = Rayan, Badriya and Mehdi
MARY = Miral, Rania and Sultan
MICHEL F = Mehdi, Tahra and Rania
MICHEL J = Rayan, Tahra and Rania

With 3 votes each, Mehdi, Rania and Tahra were nominated this week
