Arab World: Congratulations to Arabs Got Talents!

#arabsgottalents quickly became a trending topic on Twitter

Finally, a place where people can go and share their talents, away from boredom, and politics, here's one way to inspire, captivate, entertain, humour and give aesthetic and touching moments to the world…

Picking up slowly and receiving lots of reviews, Arabs Got Talents’ first season launched this week overwhelmed tweeters and became a trending topic on Twitter– with some demeaning comments towards the contestants, and others ardently enjoying and admiring them…

Some comments from tweeters are as follows:

SirCheekss from Kuwait impatiently says:

SirCheekss Shkithir baji 3ala youm il yim3a? Aby ashoof #ArabsGotTalent.

How much left till Friday (when the show will be on again!) I want to watch the show

SMousa, from Khobar, Saudia Arabia, is also quite anxious and remarks:

smousa Abi youm eljm3a asra3 mt7msa #ArabsGotTalent

I want Friday faster, I'm excited!

On a more sarcastic note, ShanteleeWhaat comments:

ShantaleeWhaat #arabsgottalent . Seriously Who Can Threaten’ USA More Then Them ?

And YaraHattab ridicules the contestants as she states:

YaraHattab @chantelsaid #arabsgottalent HAHAHAHA . I CUDNT WAIT. I LIKE PISSED MYSELF LAUGHING. i have come to a conclusion that arabs have no talent.

On a more positive note, nidalkhoury1 from Amman, Jordan, appraises a contestant:

nidalkhoury1 Good performance for Talal on #starbldar #middleeast http://bit.ly/fkkj2g for real #arabsgottalent

And starbldar has the exact same reaction:

starbldar Good performance for Talal on #starbldar #middleeast http://bit.ly/fkkj2g for real #arabsgottalent

Here's to a fantastic beginning to Arabs Got Talent!
