As most of us on this forum see it, the top 5 should have been Amey, Karunya, Panna, Meenal and Sandeep. Singers such as Anuj and Ravi shudnt have been there in the first place. I think the show started to drift the wrong way when Anuj was given a second chance. The judges lieterally ruined it. Just imagine having Sandeep or Anuj as our very own Indian Idol.... now thats something that's best if its left only to imagination.
Also, every week when guest judges are called to present themselves on the sets, they should stick to comments such as " Good/Bad/Average/Horrendous"...rather than Diya Mirza saying " The boy from hyderabad shud win or " Amey is going to be the winner "" Sandeep shud perform from the inner depths or whatver"" If Karunya doesnt win then im going to stop watching Indian Idol"...Diya literally screwed the whole episode with her nonsense. For all we know, she kept changing her own words every second.
The Indian public is so sentimental and so emotional that they can go to any level to get what they want and who they would want to see as a winner ( good or bad ). The same thing happened with Sa Re Ga Ma. We got to see an hyperactive Himmesh and an emotional Ismail Darbar. And their behaviour at the end affected the results of the contestants. Hemachandra had to bear the brunt and got thrown out.
On the other side of the world, American Idol sees no probs whatsoever and people know how to vote, for whom to vote and whom not to vote for. They had a total of 24 contestants competing to reach the final 12 and i think this year has the 12 best of American Idol so far. Without any problems or fuss or hassles.
I dont know about what others would say but i think there is just one solution to Indian Idol. Details such as last name and place of origin of contestants should not be revealed on the show. They should all be addressed by their first names. At least in that way, the public can be fooled to a certain extent coz when they vote, they wouldnt know which city or what caste creed or zone that contestant comes from. No one would know for sure if Contestant 1 is a Sharma, or Contestant 2 is from South India or Contestant 3 is a Bengali. Everyone would be treated fair and equal. Thats how i see it.
Any comments ?
