This news is fresh out of the oven! You heard it here first!
It's official, Lebanese singer Wael Kfouri has been signed on to Arab Idol 3 and will be taking over Ragheb Alama's jury duties!
Ragheb Alama tweeted about this today and wished Wael good luck for the upcoming season; "اتمنى للزميل وائل كفوري كل التوفيق بمهمته في لجنة تحكيم آراب ايدول
وائل فنان جميل وذو اخلاق عالية وبالتأكيد سيكون رأيه صائب في الاختيارات"
Wael was a judge on X Factor and has had jury experience before ... but the question is, will he fill in Ragheb's chair as he should?
What do you think? Is Wael a worthy successor of Ragheb?
Will he survive Ahlam's sudden bursts and strange attitudes? Will his presence be harmonious with Nancy, Hassan and Ahlam just the same?
If you want the truth, sometimes I have my doubts ... Sorry, but I thought he wan't very funny and lite-hearted on the X Factor.
