RAMESH - Oorana Oorukkulla - 4 G - SELECTED - GRABBED THE CHAIR with the first performance of the day
Ramesh has a good music sense. I like his sincere approach to beat the odds. His voice is good to hear at all pitch levels and the pronounciation is good. Folk is his best genre. I still feel at least part of the contestants have not accepted him as part of the group. which showed when he danced alone and not one even got up for him.
I felt sad when I read in some youtube comments that Soundarya (a repeat contestant of season 3 (T20)) passed some comments about him that he doesnt have access to ipod like technology to help him learn better because of his nature of work and he is always on the road and wont stand for long. I dont know in which situation she said that or even if it is true or not.. But I am seriously annoyed to see such talk coming up. I just hope it isn't her and this is not true.
SHENBAGARAJ - Aadungada enna suthi - 3 G - SELECTED
He was good. Very good energy. It was nice to hear. Though there were some mistakes nothing did show up blatantly.
KRISHNAN - Vennilave Velli velli nilave - 4 G - SELECTED - GRABBED THE CHAIR from Ramesh
He sang very well. His high notes were quite excellent. Made an amazing effect. It was all the same between Ramesh and him. Finally a slight difference uprooted Ramesh from his seat and set Krishnan there
RAFEEQUE - Valliye Chakkara valliye - 4 G - SELECTED - GRABBED THE CHAIR from Krishnan
A new dimension of this guy. He seems to have slowly broken his shell and now as open as possible on a stage. He used the stage very well. Shuba said he sang well than the original singer :) As Krishnan clearly said, Rafeeque's attitude was more open and impressive. Being friends, Krishnan cutely said, friend vandu kooda irunde kuli parichitan.
NAMITHA - Allegra Allegra - 3 G - SELECTED
She sang well. Its a tough group to be in today. The ornamentation she gave in the song was very nice.
SAEED - One day mattum girlfriend aa nee variya - 4 G - SELECTED - GRABBED THE CHAIR from Rafeeque
He danced MJ's steps very nicely. He has a good but thin voice. But his variations were very well done. Not any slips at all in either the song or the dance. This day was turning out to be awesome. Everyone was fighting to be the better than the other.
SANJAY - Hey Vettrivela - 4 G - SELECTED - GRABBED THE CHAIR from Saeed
He sang very very well. His dance was impressive. He engaged everyone. Based on his consistency his performance overturned Saeed :) Wow! what a day! The chair has really been much used today.
PRADEEP - Madurai ku pogadhadi - 4 G - SELECTED - Finally one that did not replace the holder of the chair
His delivery as usual was very nice. The sangathis fall easily to him. Very easy reach on high notes. Sadly not enough to shake Sanjay from the hot seat
SANJAY made it to the Top 30. I guess its mainly due to his consistent never in danger zone performances through out.
Well, today was an interesting episode where all the 8 were right on top of their jobs. No playful and non-serious performances. And each of them were enjoyable. I liked the way the Chair kept going from one to the other. That's how a competition should be.
