Googoosh Music Academy, a Persian Talent Show

Googoosh-music-academy-iGoogoosh Music Academy is a new television series to discover unknown talents with the help and guidance of Googoosh.

The idea of  the show is not only for the audience to vote for their favorites, but also to teach these talents how to best reach their highest potential.

The whole application process was online, and all Persian speaking talents had the opportunity to send in their video/application form without having to travel for audition.

The series started filming at the end of August in London and is now broadcasting every week across Europe and the Middle East on Manoto TV in November.
