This is how it starts
"....if they thought that Amey was to be in the top 2 then why go through the entire drama of eliminating 10 contestants. they should have just not let Amey compete in the competition. if he is being voted out then accept the result. It is not that Amey is not an undiscovered talent. Amey was discovered long ago SaReGaMa, but no one music director saw it fit to hir him as a playbacksinger and he was a chorous singer! It is not that he was not surrounded by music directors and other artists. Sonu Nigam himself has said that he has shook hands with amey when he was a chorous singer. If sonu nigam was so confident of amey's singing then why did he not recommend him to other directors."
" Amey Date is not an exceptionally gifted singer and this is proved by the fact that eventhough he was discovered in SRGMP, nothing much was happening in his career front. People did not vote for him because most of the people did not approve of the way he sang. Why would people waste thier money and vote for someone they did not like? Just because Amey Date is popular in Mumbai, it does not mean he is popular throughout India. People throughout the country like Anuj and Sandeep too. Just because we have biased judges on the show it does not mean that the public is wrong in ousting Amey Date. Why wasnt Amey Date selected the winner in SRGMP where it was the judges who called the shots. Why didnt sonu nigam stand against the judges then and say that he dos not agree with them at that time. Because something was lacking in him."
My goodness Pragati Ji....Do you have soemthing Personal against this guy?
"Anuj is definately more talented than amey in the eyes of the people who paid and voted for him."
Ok this was quite undigestable
"I think amey has a very likeable personality! I really liked him the day he was voted out because I got to see the other side of him, asking his mom and friends to calm down in marathi. I really liked him when he said he would trade places with a female contestant (i guess neha, when they both were in the bottom three) who was voted out. I really liked the fact that he advised sandeep to not sing in amitabh bachchan style. i really like him when he felt genuninely bad that panna was being voted out. i really liked him when he came up the stage again and performed aamirs step so innocently and shyly. i really really admired him when he accepted that he had a problem singing RDB and Satrangi Re. How can I not like him when I admire him so much as a person? He has more personality and depth than any singer on II2.".....
Here you go again......
"i don't know why amey is getting so much of hype. he does not deserve this much of hype. If he sings well i can understand all the glorification but he does not. he is getting votes through big advertisments through his school principal.
(Does his Principal largely controls SO many people who vote for Amey?...Must say what an influential guy..
..) agreed it is a democrraic country and people can vote for the one that they want. but hello someone should tell these people that we need to have a good representative."
You keep contradicting your self
"Sonuji does not hate any singer. He sings zegazillion times better than Amey Date. He does not praise Amey that much becoase amey has limitations as far as his singing is concerned.".....
I guess then he wouldnt have told him time and again that he sees him as one of the top 2 finalists
"I did not state that I like Amey for his singing! I said i like amey for the little things he has done in II2. Nobody in Indian Idol 2 has cared so much for other contestants as Amey Date. I might not be a big fan of amey date singing wise which i have made very clear in my previous post, but I do like amey date for what he is and what he stands for. He is a good natured guy which is more important than being a good singer anyday!"
"It is sad that Amey got voted out. I was looking for a good comp. between amey and karunya. Amey is the best performer among all the 4 guys. He is very mature and a caring guy. He knows what is the right thing to do. He will definately shine in his career" ........
How will he shine in his career if he (as you say) is not a good singer...because his career is singing?????
And this is how it ends /\........You have said it all here..He will shine in his career. You should make up your mind and clear your thoughts about Amey Date.
