The video that features Miss Universe of France 2016 Iris Mittenaere singing a verse of the popular Egyptian song “Ela’ab Yalla” (Go For It) became one of the most trending YouTube videos in Egypt.

Broadcast on Nogoum FM TV Channel, the Ma’ak fil Sekka (With You on the Road) program hosted Mittenaere on Thursday. Coming from New York, Mittenaere made a stop in Egypt for a week-long tour.

In a press conference held in the presence of Huda Aboud, the organizer of the 2017 Miss Egypt World competition, Mittenaere said that she basks in the glory of the ancient Egyptian civilization and cannot wait to visit Egypt’s historical sites, like the Pyramids of Giza and Qaitbay Citadel in Alexandria. Also, Mittenaere is part of the jury for the Miss Egypt World 2017 contest, which takes place on Saturday evening at Marriott Hotel in Zamalek.
