Idol host Ahmad Fahmi announced that two contestants will be eliminated in next week’s Arab Idol results show episode ( May 4).
Lebanese contestant Wael Saed and Hanan Rida from Bahrain, were revealed to be in the bottom two, based on viewers votes in Saturday’s Arab Idol 2013 first results show ( April 27).
Wael Saed was later revealed to be the one in jeopardy, after receiving the lowest viewers votes.
Wael was given a chance to sing for the judges’ save and sang Sayed Mekawy’s ” Helween Men Yomna” for survival (Video above)
What is judges’ ” Save Card” : A save card gives the judges the power to save one eliminated contestant and spare her/him from elimination for that particular week. The save can only be used once per season and at least two judges must decide to use the ” save”.
