- "Naa Jiya laage na" What a song by Lata - from a brilliant movie. Namitha, where was the soul? And the "piya teri baanwari se" etc. were sounding MECHANICAL.
- "Jhoom le hans bol" - MOST IMPRESSIVE
, better than the rest.
Rohini - "Thaazh sadaiyum" - Struggling & sounding nasal in higher octaves. Absolutely no clarity in lower octaves.
Sharath Santhosh - "Mitwa" - I can keep listening to it in an infinite loop !! What a find - the voice behind it, SHAFQAT. And what a composition by SEL. His performance was much better than I expected. Higher notes were brilliant but lower octaves need some working on. COULD Not himself control those "Carnatic" touches !!
- "Jab deep jale aana" - HEAVENLY number by KJY
. Sayeed fell much below my expectation. A BRIGHT song sounded very SOBER.
Krishnan - "Athraanthare" - VERY GOOD and better than Sayeed's, Rohini's and Namita's. Soul was intact despite feeble base voice.
Shenbagaraj - Padhaaro mhare des - With his voice, he can work wonders i.e. if he is good at technical aspects. But alas ! Pronunciation was way off.
Saahil - "Teri deewani" - Unlike Soumya's comments, I thought the soul was present. But he sounds very nasal sometimes and off-key at some.
Vignesh - "Allah Srirama" - Very unsteady & shaky totally.
Niranjana - "Chandan sa badan" - I thought she will sing that song during the entire show !! Very dragging...She compressed all the high note-verses.
Poornima - "Enna thavam" The rap part was a good addition. I thought she was better than Rohini, Vignesh, Shenbagaraj and maybe even Sayeed.
Nirjari - "Sa virahe tava deena" - Okay. Not good not bad.
Thhirupurasundari - "Bahara" - Little bit disappointed. Appealing voice, should be very good for some Hindi songs. Pronunciation could be better. High notes were quite unsteady. But the soul was intact.
Vaishali - "Lag ja gale" - Another gem by Lata. Over-expressive(or too slow ??), good voice but very shaky in the ends of some verses.
Vikram - "Shankara" OMG, what a song!! A GEM BY SPB !! A bit disappointed. Vikram's throat was very dry and struggling with high notes, breath and tempo. But managed to finish the song.
Narayanan - Very good. Lower octaves should be clear as well. Some places in higher notes were too "SHARP".
Madhumitha - "Sajda" - Unsteady lower notes. Pronunciation (a common entity !!) could have been better. The emotion was very good.
, Ananth Vaidyanathan did not MENTION anything bad about Poornima's performance (Something fishy ??!!). But he picked a lot of negatives with Vignesh, Shenbagaraj & Rohini and SENT THEM IN ???!!!!!
To all those who sang Hindi songs
-- P..L..E..A..S..E work on your pronunciation.
