Hiba is officially in the semi-finals of The Voice France after winning the public vote one more time. The next round will take place on April 18th and will feature the remaining 8 candidates:
– Camille Lellouche
– Anne Sila
– Battista Acquaviva
– David Thibault
– Guilhem Valayé
– Lilian Renaud
Mika was impressed by Hiba’s performance but Jennifer wasn’t very convinced and wants Hiba to sing in Arabic like she did at the start of the show. Honestly, I think Hiba is playing it safe and leaving the best for last which is a smart strategy, plus I wouldn’t trust Jennifer specially after what she did with Anthony Touma.
Update: There are still 12 candidates left out of which 4 will compete in the finals. I corrected the title from Semi-finals to the next round as there are 2 more rounds before the finals.
Hiba Tawaji is through to the quarter finals of The Voice France after she won the public vote with her last performance. The judges had no say in the final result so Hiba needed everyone’s support as she was competing with 3 other contestants from Mika’s team. She chose to perform Everytime by Britney Spears which I believe suited her better than Christina Aguilera’s “Fighter”.
Hiba is a step closer to the finals and I’m sure she can win this!
For those of you who couldn’t find the video and asked me to share it, Hiba is uploading all her performances on her YouTube channel and you can check them [there].
Update (04/04/2015): Hiba Tawaji is still going strong in the Voice France and has advanced to the next round.
Hiba Tawaji is one step closer to the Voice France finals after she passed the knockout rounds and advanced to the live shows, which are the final stages of the show. At this point, Hiba will be competing next week against 3 other candidates from the same team and performing live. I was looking for the video and it just got uploaded (Check starting Minute 2:30)
Cintia Baroud is a Lebanese-Canadian singer and songwriter. She’s competing in the Voice Canada and has advanced to the final rounds of the TV show. I watched her performance and she has a great voice to be honest and deserves our support.
She will be performing once again on March 22 so best of luck to you Cintia!
PS: I tried to find the link where you can vote on Facebook for Cintia but only found La Voix Cintia Baroud page.
An interactive piano set inside ABC Dbayyeh mall was inviting people passing by to play and making fun of those who can’t with messages like “Please Stop” or “Practice makes perfect (Try 10 years)” while praising those who know how to play the piano by saying “Music to my ears” or “Mozart! Bach! Beethoven! Listen to this genius”. At the end, some of those who gave it a try were rewarded with tickets to Al Bustan Festival.
Fadl Shaker is no longer hiding in Ain el Helwe, he is now giving TV interviews and trying to make us forget what he did with Al Assir a couple of years ago. I only have one thing to say here: Shaker is directly or indirectly responsible for killing Lebanese army soldiers, is charged with inciting sectarian hatred and undermining the reputation of the Lebanese Army.
Fadl Shaker belongs in prison and the authorities should figure out a way to arrest him.
Hiba Tawaji impressed the judges again but NOG’s performance is a proof that thing will only get more difficult for Hiba and it’s not as easy as people thought it would be. The other competitor of Lebanese origin Lea Tchena also advanced to the next round and won her battle.
Lebanese music producer & composer Jean-Marie Riachi released a Middle Eastern version of John Legend’s biggest hit ever and one of the best performing R&B songs of 2013/2014 “All of me”. Riachi basically added an oriental twist to the song and it turned out to be pretty cool.
