My review tonight will be different ... I feel like using bullet points this time!
So let's start at the beginning:


- Latifah is the guest and she's looking significantly younger! The miracle of plastic surgery!
- Latifah is joined by Rita and they both sing Latifah's song "Ba77a Ba77a".
- Mohammad Shaheen was in the middle of a beautiful tableau inspired by "Qasr El Shouq".
- Under pressure, it seems the nominees perform better!
- Doaa sings Arabic for the very first time ... she was way out of tune!
- Former Starac student Fadi Andraous is the second guest of the prime, and he was joined by Laith for a duetto.

Ibtisam Tesket: The Academy's Haifa-look-alike

Ibtisam Tesket vs Haifa Webe

Ibtisam Tesket, Star Academy's Moroccan contestant is undoubtedly a Haifa-wanna-be!
The similarities between them are many and she even tries to imitate Haifa in the way she walks and talks.

Ibtisam is very confident with herself and her talent and she deals with everyone around accordingly. She acts as if she's already a diva!
What do you think of Ibtisam? Is she a wee bit too confident? Or is her talent that of stars?
