Saudi Version of America's Got Talent Bans Women and Dancing

Contestants on the Saudi version of 'America's Got Talent' may find the rules a little more... restricting than their western counterparts.

The contest, which is being held north of the capital in the city of Buraydah, does not allow singing, dancing, or music.

Since the organizers have decided to obey the strict Islamic rules of segregation between the sexes, women are also banned from taking part.

But wait...don't turn off your TV sets just yet... there will be plenty of religious chants, poem recitals, and demonstrations of sporting prowess.

In a format that is sure to grip viewers from all nations, "Buraydah's Got Talent" will take place in the open air before a jury comprising a poet, a television producer, and TV presenters.

Wednesday night viewing will never be the same...
