I just started watching American Idol just to see how different or same it was from Indian Idol..........these are the things I noticed .......please post your opinions too.......

1.  Not too much focus on dresses in American Idol...so far.....contestants seem to wear something simple.......
2.  Focus was on singing alone...not performance.........the judges kept talking about contestants' singing, what they felt when they listened to them....

In Indian idol.....
1. performance and dressing seem to take a focus rather than the singing.....except by sonu and sometimes by anu........definitely not by Farah.....she should definitely not be a judge here at all..........

This is again my humble opinion...........what's yours??????

I completely agree with you on this.... that the focus should be on the singing and singing alone......
I know the Indian Idol will be doing a lot of stage shows.... It is not that we do not know how a magical voice will keep the audiance mesmerized..... We know that the legends like Lata Mangeshkar can just stand on the stage in a white saree and sing and spellbound the audiance for more than 3 hours, then why not try to choose/find some one who can do the same only and only with her/his voice, delivering the songs that are technically the best and rich in feelings.
I do not understand this need for the performance.

I have been watching American Idol from the very beginning. It is far better than Indian Idol.

-- Like you said the stress is not on performance & appearance but solely singing. It is completely opposite in Indian Idol. Too much stress on looks,performance and melodrama.

-- Moreover the most important aspect is that in American Idol they do not disclose the city of the participants except during the 1st introduction. In Indian Idol gaon ki ladki melodrama was too much. It got tiresome and that's how the regionalism started.

-- The amount of time allowed for voting is also restricted in American Idol which is what it should be. In India ppl keep voting throughout the night which is ridiculous.

Although I see that the focus is majorly on singing, I find American Idol just tooooo boring..there's no spunk..mainly because their songs are usually old and not the newer ones due to copyright in US...they dont have anything interesting when compared to II..don't beat me Ouch lol...but I prefer II much much more than AI

Talking of regionalism........was it such a big deal during Idol I.........it seems to be getting worse after SRGMP incident........I thought Idol I was more on singing talent....the top 4 there definitely prove that......look at the top 4 here.......huge difference.....

so what changed in a year!!!!!!!!

In American Idol they do care about performance, especially Simon because he said before to contestants that their performance was boring and etc.

Fantasia can't read.  LOL
