I saw with much sadness Amey Date a talented singer from Mumbai being voted out of the Indian Idol contest yesterday. Prior to him, good singers such as Monali, Panna, Meenal, Antara were also voted out. In comparison to the remaining 3 except Karunya, the other two Anuj and Sandeep lack what it takes to be Indian Idol.
My grouse is whether the Indian public is actually ready for reality voting shows. Because trends indicate that the voting is along regional lines and not on singing talent at all?
For instance the same formatted show in the US, the public actually votes for an Individual as a package and regional factors hardly play a role.. yuor comments please..

I was quite prepared for good singers exitign Indian idol..after havign experienced that we vote for contestants from our region only. take for example Qazi & Ruprekha winnign Fame Jodi..(Rupu is still got singign talent..but Qazi..no wayzz...)
I also caught the Indian idol season when jasmine stuck around because of teh asian + hawaiian appeal !
Yeah this is not only in India !
i think this happens more in India because we are loyal to our region first and then our country..
even though we say that united we stand but this voting proves that divided we are !
Actually the reasons behind it can be many..but teh most prominent one is ofcourse teh pride of seeing someoen from ur state or city winnign the title ! who wouldn't like that?
Plus, these shows are not just singign based..orelse why woudl they see the X factor?
Also, not all peopel have teh nack for classical singign and the one's whose song selection & appeal seems better gets all teh votes~
Rules are rules..if junta is given teh rigth to vote, we shouln'd be complaingin..after all we are part of teh junta !
So it's not a question of Indian public not being mature enough for reality shows..its more the case of practising favouritism & regionalism !
( no harm in favouritism..it's natural..but regionalism hurts...even Hawaiians did it for jasmine and i guess HPites are doign it for Anuj..)
we gotta just accept it !!

well, just as others have said, this isnt only India. and in American Idol, other contestants have received more fame than the real winner, so Amay will go far ahead because of his talent
