The format of Jo Jeeta Wohi Super Star
centers on the following elements:
1. The Teams:
There are two teams on the show: The Champions and The Challengers
2. The Champions:
are the title winners of all the various singing talent hunt shows such as Indian Idol
, Zee Sa Re Ga Ma Pa
, Voice of India
etc. There are 6 Champions on the show.
3. The Challengers are the runner-ups or the ones who almost stole the
titles from the winners but did not make the cut. There are 12
Challengers on the show.
4. First part of the competition (the Friday episode) - The show will
first have the Challengers battle it out amongst themselves every week
to make the cut to the Champions side.
5. Second part of the competition (the Saturday episode) - One
Challenger joins the Champions every week in order to compete alongside
them at an equal platform. Basis their performances, the audience and
the jury votes decide who will stay on and which one of them will be
eliminated the next week.
6. Judgement of the first part:
The first part of the
competition involves the Challengers solo performances. Here, every
week the panel of Jury awards them marks basis this performance. Once
we have the top three Challengers for that day as per the judges
points, the Champions cast in their votes for those top three
Challengers. These votes are not divulged in the same episode. These
additional marks added to the judge's score determine which one of the
three Challengers moves on to the Champion's side that week in order to
compete with them.
7. Judgement of the second part:
This Challenger who has
crossed over to the Champions side is now also addressed as a Champion.
The second part of the competition involves the Champions performing
solo's. All these performances are then marked by the panel of jury.
However, their marks have only 50% of weightage. The other 50 % of
weightage is given to the audience votes. Hence, at the end of each
Saturday episode, voting lines are opened to the home- audiences. The
result is finally declared on the next Friday episode where a
combination of the Jury's marks and the audience votes determines the
scores for the Champions. The Champion with the least amount of
cumulative score is then eliminated from the competition. (This
eliminated Champion could be anyone: One of the original Champion's or
the Challenger who had moved to their side.)
8. The Week 8 Twist:
The above process is followed week on
week till Week 8. In week 8, there are 5 Challengers left. Now only one
of these 5 makes it to the Champion's side. The other 4 are eliminated.
9. Week 9-11:
From Week 9 onwards, we have only the
Champion's league left (In an ideal situation, this could be a mix of
the original Champions and the Challengers). Thus, on every Friday all
remaining Champions perform solo's. The Jury marks this performance.
This day's score is carried forward to the next day and it has 25%
weightage in the overall score. The next day, i.e. the Saturday
episode, the Champion's perform Duets with an Industry playback singer.
The jury yet again marks them on this performance (the weightage of
these marks are another 25 %) and simultaneously, the voting lines are
opened for the audience. The audience voting has a 50 % weightage in
the overall results. Hence, the Results= 25% jury marks on Fri + 25%
jury marks on Sat + 50% of audience votes. The Champion with the least
amount of cumulative score is then eliminated next week. This process
is followed till Week 11.
10. Week 12:
The first episode of this week, i.e. the
Friday episode begins with the elimination of the Champion with the
least amount of score and leaves us with the top 3 Finalists. The top 3
Champions perform and are marked by the judges. The next day, i.e. the
Sat episode will see the top three finalists perform live at a ground
event while the audience votes keep coming in. The cumulative score of
the Jury and the audience votes finally give us the Ultimate winner-
The one Champion and the Final Superstar.
