No Srinivas/Unni/Sujatha this week.
This week's team of Judges: Harini, Hari Charan, Suchi, Swetha Mohan, Naresh Iyer [Am I thinking there may be no elimination this week?]
(They didnt announce that Kausik, Pooja, Malavika and Sai Charan were there! Am glad VTV is trying to promote their stars as much as possible to get them to be noticed for Playback opportunities)
Madhumitha - Moongil Thottam (Original Singer: Harini)
Harini - Loved it.
Hari Charan - This song is tough and has the intimate feel like Kadhodudaan Naan Paduven and you sang it perfectly
(She was Awesome and she enjoyed the song. )
Shenbagaraj - Pichai Pathiram (Orginal Singer: Madhu Balakrishnan)
Hari Charan - Superb rendition. You are one of the strongest contestants in this season.
Suchi - The soul you gave this song, I really enjoyed.
(Such a matured voice and a trained singer. He did pure justice to the song. I minimized the browser and heard only Madhu singing it.. )
Vaishali - Oh Mahazeeya (Original Singer: Swetha Mohan)
Swetha - I haven't heard another singer singing it. Your singing it was cute. Good Job
Hari Charan - to Swetha ... What's the meaning of the lyrics!? LOL
(Little mellowed than the original with a softer voice. Tried few improvisations. Some worked and some did not)
Special Performance: Nila Nila Nila Nila poguthe by Harini and Kaushik
New Guest: Music Director Sathya (Theeya Vela Seyyanum Kumaru Fame)
Niranjana - Kattu Chirikki (Original Singers: Anuradha Sriram & Shankar M)
Swetha - This is a tough song to sing alone. You impressed singing it alone
Naresh Iyer - It showed you practised the song well. It was a nice flow from beginning to end
(It was different to hear the song in her voice given that I keep listening to the original every time I drive.. Though I didn't feel she was at ease with this song. Anuradha rocked the folk feel).
Narayanan - Suthude Suthude Bhoomi (Original Singer: Anirudh Ravichander)
Harini - Well sung but may be a little faster than the beat.
Hari Charan - Nice attempt. Bang on Pitch and feel but was different in charanam. The original does not sound like the lyrics are pure tamil. May be you could avoid such songs.
(This guy has definitely taken difficult songs the last two weeks and rocked. Not the, THE best contestant, but he does his best to give anyone a tough competition. Just hope he works on his breath control and he can go long)
