The stage has been set, Sash is waiting for its beholder, as all the spotlight is on the Top 3 finalists of Indian Idol-4. Whole of India and the world is gearing up and eagerly waiting for their next Singing Superstar! The three finalists are geared up to give performances of their lifetime, Sourabhee with her rocking stage-presence, Torsha with her attitude and style and not to forget our "Gabro-Jawaan" turned singer Kapil with his voice and charishma!

On the occasion, we quizzed our past superstars to take their opinion on the whole hype and hysteria surrounding Indian Idol, and whom they think has the potential and talent to be the Idol of Youth and singing!

Meiyang Chang:

Who do you think has higher chance of winning Indian Idol 4?
I personally feel its Kapil and Sourabhee who have higher chance of winning

Who are you rooting for?
I shouldn't say that, but personally it should be Sourabhee. This is the first time that we have got a complete package, as she is a good singer as well as performer too. There is pace in her voice and its refreshing. Along side she has an international appeal which credits her to win the title

Why do you think Indian Idol crown eluded women contestants till now?

Earlier there were some flaws in our voting system. The people who voted were women and kids who looked up to the guys, but this season the scenario has changed and even the girls have performed really well. All I can say is that in Indian Idol 4, girls are way getter.

One contestant you miss seeing in the Top 3?

I really miss Rajdeep as he is a good singer. It's heartbreaking but I know he will do something in future. At the end of the day, all I would like to say that we should learn from the past.

Do you think bringing up the point of a girl not winning Indian Idol time and again, will benefit Torsha and Sourabhee in the Finals or will go against them?
It has worked so far isn't it? Javed Saab pointed this thing in the last season. He also believed that it was a flaw and we vote from our hearts, not the mind. In this season the mindset has changed and we are seeing a neck to neck competition between boys and girls.

Karunya:

Who do you think has higher chance of winning Indian Idol 4?
I was supporting Rajdeep, but it is very sad that he is out. But amongst the Top 3, I think Sourabhee deserves to win.

Who are you rooting for?
I am not rooting for any one; I want the best person to win.

Why do you think Indian Idol crown has eluded women contestants till now?

Its only the vote that matters and I think people realize now after three seasons that a girl deserves to win Idol.

One contestant you miss seeing in the Top 3?

Of course Rajdeep, he was the most deserving one.

Do you think bringing up the point of a girl not winning Indian Idol time and again, will benefit Torsha and Sourabhee in the Finals or will go against them?
It will go against them. I think people will also get fed up of hearing the same thing again and again.

Meenal Jain:

Who do you think has higher chance of winning Indian Idol 4?
May be Sourabhee or Torsha.

Who are you rooting for?
I like all the three as they are good singers. So can't choose!!
 
Why do you think Indian Idol crown eluded women contestants till now?
Its only vote that matters and girls vote bindaas for guys and this is why boys win always.

One contestant you miss seeing in the Top 3?
Rajdeep, he was very good and deserved to be in the finale.

Do you think bringing up the point of a girl not winning Indian Idol time and again, will benefit Torsha and Sourabhee in the Finals or will go against them?
It depends on the vote of the people.

Rahul Vaidya:

Who do you think has higher chance of winning Indian Idol 4?
Sourabhee and Kapil have equal chance of winning the crown, but Torsha has less chance.

Who are you rooting for?
I am not rooting for anyone. May the best one win.

Why do you think Indian Idol crown eluded women contestants till now?
Winning depends on voting and I think women are more sincere in voting, that is why every time it is a guy who wins.

One contestant you miss seeing in the Top 3?

Rajdeep, as he was the best.

Do you think bringing up the point of a girl not winning Indian Idol time and again, will benefit Torsha and Sourabhee in the Finals or will go against them?
Its not fine there is lot of gender discussion in this Indian Idol let it be the best person win.

Abhishek:

Who do you think has higher chance of winning Indian Idol 4?
Well, with the publicity being given to Sourabhee by all, it seems as though she has brighter chances of winning.

Who are you rooting for?
I am personally rooting for Kapil. He is such a humble person, and has improved so well that he deserves to win. Even last year, Amit Paul should have won, but regional votes helped Prashant. I hope this time we get a better result.

Why do you think Indian Idol crown has eluded women contestants till now?
Boys don't vote for girls as much as girls vote for boys..

One contestant you miss seeing in the Top 3?

Rajdeep for sure!!

Do you think bringing up the point of a girl not winning Indian Idol time and again, will benefit Torsha and Sourabhee in the Finals or will go against them?
Yes, I was also feeling the same. I just hope and pray that voting favors Kapil and he wins..

Deepali:

Who do you think has higher chance of winning Indian Idol 4?

I think Sourabhee will win as she has a great fan following.

Who are you rooting for?
I personally pray that Sourabhee wins. We have two girls in the Finale this time, and this is a great achievement. I am hoping that we get our first female Idol in Sourabhee.

Why do you think Indian Idol crown has eluded women contestants till now?

I feel people have never realized that a girl can win competitions. Indian society is so dominated by men that girls are pushed back for so many reasons. It is high time that a girl won Indian Idol. This is the best opportunity to turn the tables as we have for the first time, not one but two girls in the Finale. If either Sourabhee or Torsha do not win this time, we will never see a female as Idol in future...

One contestant you miss seeing in the Top 3?

Rajdeep. I expected him to be in the finale. Though I have been rooting for Sourabhee all along, I feel Rajdeep's presence in the Finale would have given a tougher challenge to the girl.

Do you think bringing up the point of a girl not winning Indian Idol time and again, will benefit Torsha and Sourabhee in the Finals or will go against them?
Yes, I was also thinking of the same thing. I just hope all the talk about a girl not becoming Idol does not backfire on Sourabhee and Torsha. Keeping fingers crossed...

Well, with the replies we have got, it is pretty evident that the very talented Rajdeep Chatterjee will be missed in the Finale.. This time, it looks like the two girls might give a stiff challenge to the lone male in the Finale of Indian Idol on March 1st, but then it is again the 'Janta Janardhan' who will have the final say in the result...

Are we getting our first Female Indian Idol this season or will Kapil Thapa succeed in maintaining the cent percent winning streak of guys? Watch out as the Finale of Indian Idol 4 on Sony Entertainment television on March 1st, will give you all the answers...

  • Posted on: 27 February 2009 at 2:03am-MamuKiBhanji-

    may d best person win ! but i v something to say here.. Contestants judges n many ppl even us many time say that girls always vote 4boys but boys doesnt vote 4girls..but according to me..boys really doesnt vote much..no matter its 4boys or a girl..
    & d other thing is-Judges always says that ppl dont vote 4girls but i think everytime a girl is not much deserving as much a boy..4 an example-Emon n Depali-Choose 1..i''ll choose Emon coz 4me he has definetly a better voice n singing skills dan Depali..Im a girl but iv to be fair wid all d contestant after all its not d matter d person who''s sining thats a boy or girl,what matter who singing gud n who bad n who d average..I watched II 1 & II 3..II 1 has d perfect winner as Abhijeet sawant..but in II3 there was all gud singers who got voted out & d winner was Prashant..(no offence) but it wasnt a great winner 4 indian idol,Though he''s a bot but he''was not a deserving 1..there was lot deserving participents like,Emon,Chang,parleen,Amit n but dey all out..talk abt depali n pooja well they were awesome but not that much like d guyz..
    BUT this time..though 1 deserving contestant is not der(Rajdeep) & im so happy to see that a girl who deserve to win dis time II4 & she''s der in final(sourabee) i really wish her luck n want her win to..coz she really deserve..
    & last of all in my personal opinion i''ll say to judges,Dont say to audience dat VOTE 4GIRLSSay,VOTE WHO SINGS WELL<NO MATTER ITA A BOY OR GIRL

    Deepali said Sourabhee has the biggest fan following which is probably true but I feel Kapil also has a big fan following. If anyone is going to give Sourabhee competition, it will be Kapil (I feel). I hope SOurabhee will win but from previous experience I know usually the most dersving contestants have already left before reaching thye top 3.

  • Posted on: 27 February 2009 at 1:44am-KD-

    im rooting for sourbhee too..shes the one who deserves to win...although i wanted rajdeep to win..n indeed its evident that rajdeep deserved to win too....all the contestants r saying that..n i will miss him too!
