Googoosh Music Academy


Googoosh Music Academy is a new television series which aired on Manoto TV at the end of 2010. Manoto TV is a London-based television company, producing mainly reality shows for Persian-speaking audiences. The premise of the show was to discover unknown Persian talents with the help and guidance of Googoosh and other mentors, and to teach them how to best reach their highest potential in singing and performing. The final 8 contestants became house-hold names, and the show quickly captured the imagination of the viewing public. This was the first time Googoosh was involving herself with such a TV show, and it proved to be a huge hit, with weekly telephone and SMS votes surpassing 600,000 - a first for an Iranian TV show airing from outside Iran.

You can see the first episode of the show here:
