But unfortunately Amit became the latest evict last week from the show.
In a candid conversation with TellyBuzz, Amit opened his heart about his experiences he had being in the show...
How would you describe your journey in X Factor India as?
The journey has been good where I received nice response from people. The show gave me an opportunity to showcase a good performance and where I could display my dancing capabilities also.
Sonu Nigam has announced that you are the only contestant who has been called for concerts.
I am really proud about that. But at the same time, I am not really shocked because when you have talent, it is shown.
You are also a fantastic dancer; do you think you are better off as a dancer than a singer?
Not really, because I always thought of becoming someone like Michael Jackson who could sing and dance and thus give the best performance. In India there are not many who do that, and hence I wanted to bring in that.
How are you planning to take your singing forward?
I have been learning Light Music earlier and frankly, I have not been regular with my Riyaaz. But after coming here I have learnt certain things and I would do my Riyaaz regularly henceforth.
How will you describe Shreya Ghoshal as a mentor?
Shreya Ghoshal is really nice, very friendly and cute. I never felt her as a mentor. Whenever we used to talk, she cooperated a lot in my song selection and has been really helpful.
What have you learnt from the stage of X Factor India?
What I have learnt is that you should stick to the X Factor that you have and should not try to go away from it. You have to polish that X Factor and make that the best in you. For instance there were performances where my song selection went wrong and I could not put in my dance numbers properly into that.
What were the challenges that you have faced on the stage?
Actually there were not many challenges that I faced. But I always felt that the teams have a lot of advantages against the individuals because they have an opportunity to perform and display more than us.
Till now it's mostly the individual participants who have been eliminated while most of the groups have remained safe. So do u think X Factor India is more about team performance rather than individual brilliance?
I do not think that's true because individual contestants have been more popular than the team. But at the same time, when it is a group, the volume and the depth in the song improve.
Shreya Ghoshal had said that both the performances in the phase off round have not been really impressive. But you were voted out. What do you think went wrong with your performance when compared to Sajda Sisters?
I do not think I have given a performance where I have gone completely wrong in any aspect. I respect the judgments of the judges. Also I am glad that I got eliminated after giving really good performances.
Can you give us a brief on what you were doing before X Factor India happened to you?
I was doing shows both in India and abroad as well. I was also doing a movie, but the shoot was put to halt for some reasons. I had also participated in Fame Gurukul earlier, but I was eliminated soon because of which I could not give more performances.
Who is your greatest inspiration in singing?
I would say Sonu Ji, he is indeed a great inspiration for lot of us. But I feel that I am more comfortable and could easily catch up with songs of KK. In fact all my good performances were on the songs sung by KK.
What would you like to tell Kartar Uncle and Geet Sagar?
I think with the pace with which Kartar Uncle is getting votes, he should win the show.
