The show ran every four years for an entire year, and contestants from all over Lebanon competed in different singing categories for the gold, silver or bronze medals awards.

Artists were not allowed to perform elsewhere than on LBCI, so they were called upon to perform in Nahr el-Founoun, an artistic complex in Nahr el-Kalb that was owned by Simon Asmar.[1]
