It's not as if Mohamad Aman's singing sucks... But I would like to see him rendering equally amazing performances every time...
And even if the lad doesn't win I will be thankful to him for bringing us closer to classical singing...and giving such outstanding renditions...
The versatility comes in ONLY for these shows, i feel.
In the Olden days, there were 5-6 singers who ruled the roost and adapted themselves to singing all types of songs.
Nowadays, we actually have kind of niche-ish singers.
kailash kher, sukhwinder, Mohit, richa, KK, sunidhi, Shreya etc etc are all niche singers. With the kind of experimentation going on, we do not need versatile singers at all. all of them are doing quite well.
I personally do not think versatility is important.
Good singing and unusual voice is.
