Dubai, 15 June 2015: Jumeirah Beach Hotel, part of Jumeirah Group, the luxury global hotel company and member of Dubai Holding, hosted auditions for the popular MBC TV talent-spotting programme ‘Arab Idol.’
Inspired by the popular British TV show Pop Idol, Arab Idol is a successor from a previous show called Super Star. The show premiered for the first time in 2011 and since then has gained a loyal fan base across the Middle East.
For the second consecutive year, hundreds of young contestants travelled to Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai to participate in the competition all hoping to win a recording contract with Platinum Records. The event was held in the hotel’s iconic standalone conference centre.
Jumeirah Beach Hotel offers a prime location for the event, with stunning Dubai views and trusted on-site facilities perfect for an event of this size. Filming took place in conference and meetings areas overlooking the local area which facilitated the arrival of the participants and the hundreds of attendees who accompanied them to the auditions.
General Manager of Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Mahmoud Sakr, said: “We are very proud to have received this opportunity to work with MBC Group to host the ‘Arab Idol’ auditions for the second consecutive year, it was a great success and we are looking forward to collaborate with them in the near future.”
Jumeirah Beach Hotel hopes that the hundreds of talented participants achieve their dream and wishes them luck in the continuing Arab Idol competition.
