The first episode of the talent show “THE X FACTOR” which broadcasts on channels CBC, Rotana, & MTV Lebanon every Thursday and Friday evening witnessed a distinguished performance for the Jordanian Ziad El Nafdi who made the Lebanese singer Elissa cry. Zaid performed an English song “God bless the broken road”, and his amazing voice touched too many feelings especially the sensitive sweet Elissa who was spotted by the program’s cameras shedding her tears. Elissa in turn admitted that Zaid has a great voice, one of a kind…and surprisingly made her cry, she who hardly cries !
