    Horrible replacements!

    I guess its better to have Anu Malik in the show ..he is real spice better than Javed Akhtar and others ..his combination with Sonu nigam was the best ..please bring sonu nigam anu malik and shreya as judges besides shan is also a good option but a BIG NOOOOOOOOO to sleeping man like Bappi and irritating drama king Mika

    i wud rather have bappi da than mika on the show.. but however they may be, couldnt the channel have found better judges?? how abt udit narayan ji? even sonu nigam is a good judge, and he has hosted indian idol before... and i think shankar mahadevan will also not be bad.. they can also get farah khan back.. why not ask them also??
    and y r they replacing anu malik anyways? anu ji is like the simon cowell on indian idol.. as much as we love to hate him or hate to love him, he's like the best judge indian idol cud ever have..

    That is really sad....frankly speaking I think they both are horrible singers..........Bappi Lahri and Mika..I find them annoying and Mika very arrogant...sorry to whoever likes them. Anu Malik couldn't find any other singer???!!!! How about the first Indian Idol, Abhijeet Sawant, or Kumar Sanu, Shreya Ghoshal, Kavtha Krishna Murthy, Kunal Ganjawala, or Shaan etc. Its a never ending list. Our Nation has great why these two....???
