    MBC is set to launch the Arabic version of The X Factor on March 11.

    The Dubai-based, pan-Arab broadcaster announced in October 2014 that it had secured the rights to the Arab version of The X Factor.

    MBC has revealed few details about the show other than its launch date and the jury members, who will be present at the launch event on March 11. The jury members who will attend the launch are Ragheb Alama, Elissa and Donia Samir Ghanem.

    The broadcaster said that the launch will also include a surprise performance by an “international” band.

    The pan-Arab version of The X Factor takes the format to 51 territories worldwide. The Syco Entertainment owned and created format is co-produced/licenced by FremantleMedia worldwide.

    Since the launch of The X Factor UK in 2004 the British-born TV show has been watched by more than 360 million people around the world and can be seen in most countries.

    The X Factor format has discovered and launched more international break-out artists than any other singing competition show, with more than 160 million record sales by The X Factor artists globally.
