As reality shows go, Indian idol is definitely one of the most entertaining. This singing based show was based on the popular American idol series and 10 years back it made its debut on Indian TV.

We loved to watch the show as the contestants went head on and sung some of the best songs ever. But the show auditions were a big hit as not only good singers but some of the wackiest participants were seen here!
