Kaun Banega Superstar - Grand Finale!

At last, my favourite show has come to an end and as usual, like all the 'grand finale' shows, the last episode was was dragging and boring. The best part was Sonu Nigam was there and he is becoming like an icon now. Everyone was praising him and admiring him - and he is one of the chief guest in this show, where he was the anchor, when Gajendra Singh started this type of music talent search programme in the history of television. The quality/standard of the participants is very high. They should be classically trained, should be able to sing at least 10 ghazals, some 20 film songs of all types etc.etc. Once they are selected, they have to stay in Bombay and their lives changes step by step, to the better, if they are genuinely good and prepared to go through their vigorous training programme. The competition is very very highly rated one. If the participant comes up to the finals itself, is graded as first grade playback singer and opportunities start coming for him/her. The judges are, mostly, music directors and by the time the programme comes up to the 'grand finale', they start making the singers sing in their films. Toshi, Vineeth and many others have already sung in films.

Now, about the 'Grand Finale'! I had predicted (!) Debojith (Debu da) will win the Superstar trophy. My brother said Rahul Vaidhya will win and he was right! I agree, Rahul Vaidhya is equally good. Somehow, Debu has got depth in his voice. But I am not very unhappy about Rahul. During a previous show, Ishmith, a participant, who was making lot of mistakes, won the trophy, when Harshith like singers were shown the door. Harshith was very upset - he came third. Well...these things have to be faced when you participate in a competition. But the recognition is already there and Harshith, Debojith and Prajaktha will definitely become good playback singers, one day. This type of shows, nowadays, depend on public votes and the public sometimes fancy the singers for other reasons also, like looks, the way they talk, dance, etc. The quality of singing, which should be the main quality, goes to the back seat.

Good Luck to all the 5 finalists! We will remember all of you always for good music!
