On the 7th episode, Jennifer Grout had the audience on their feet for her performance of Egyptian iconic artist Shadya. She came in the first place for the week and won $5,000 after being at the bottom throughout the first 6 weeks of the program. Jennifer donated her first prize to Morocco, especially “the Moroccan artists of Jamaa lefna and the Amazigh artists in Marrakesh. I used to work there and it is where I live,” stated Grout, who added “hadshi dialkum”, which in Moroccan Arabic means this is yours.
The television show host, clueless to what she was talking about, simply repeated the words “Moroccan artists.” Jennifer won the prize along with her fellow contestants’ love who did not hesitate to award her points and scream that they loved her after expressing how much they appreciated her efforts in both performing Arab pop icons and learning Arabic.
