Sometimes, i don't really know what srgmp looks for in winners as you have sufi singers competing against classical singers. Im sure lots of the competition's worth is in how much money the channel can make off it while giving new talent a platform but, how can you really decide who wins when you have singers from different genres competing with each other? If what they are looking for is a Bollywood playback singer, contestants need to be versatile. just judging by volume of work, how much work a singer gets in Bollywood, being versatile is key. If they want a classical singer, Mohd Aman is the winner, hands down. I feel versatility is most important. None of these singers have been confidend enough to sing outside their comfort zone. (I cant say they aren't capable enough to do this as i don't know the full scope of their talent) We have brilliant niche singers today, Jasim in Ghazals, Mohd Aman in classical, Renu in Sufi etc. For me though, a true superstar is one who can take any song, be it a Ghazal, classical song or rock song, become the song, perform it accurately and leave the audience wanting more. I haven't seen that yet although the competition has months left, i have high hopes. I strongly believe whoever wins this show has to be versatile but one could make the argument that since there are so many singers out there, we don't necessarily need a jack of all trades, as long as he/she excells in his/her genre. I guess it all boils down to how you measure success: sheer volume (versatility) or excelling in your genre and maybe getting less work but still doing alright (genre specific singers.) What do you guys think?
