To Emon, Sonu Nigam is like almost like a God. He had not only plastered his room at his Kolkata residence with the posters of this singer but makes sure to celebrate Sonuâ€™s Birthday every year with a cake. More than becoming the Indian Idol he wanted to meet his idol in person or atleast performs once in front of him. As his luck would have been Sonu was not a part of this seasonâ€™s Indian Idol as he had overseas concerts.
So finally on this day Emon got the chance of his life time â€“ To sing in front of his God and that he did in the best possible manner. He opened the Gala Round with singing the song Tuâ€¦(Sonuâ€™s Album). But what awaited him after that was something maybe Emon never imagined. He got the biggest compliment ever from none other than Sonu Nigam himself - "I don't think he copies my style of singing. He sings in his own original voice and it is great!" We can very well imagine Emonâ€™s happiness!!
But it was after that is something everyone would remember too. As we all know how good Sonu is in doing mimicry of senior singers to perfection. This time Emon too joins his Guru and the Guru-Shishya jodi take turn to mimic all the judges with Udit Narayn personally requesting Sonu to do for him!! The whole set was brought to a laughter round with these two performing all their antics. But before leaving the sets Sonu gave a momento to Emon. It was a picture of the diety that he believes a lot and makes sure to have it with him when he starts recording. We hope to see Emon in the recording studio too soon!
So finally Emonâ€™s dream of not just meeting his idol but also performing in front of him has come true. Sony made sure that itâ€™s a days which Emon possibly would never forget.
With such excitement, one cannot afford to miss the next gala round. Watch this moment come alive on Friday August 17 th at 9 pm only on Sony Entertainment Television.
Indian Idol Rocks Delhi on Independence Day !
Indian Idol contestants are a rage wherever they go. That they are celebrities in their own right is an understatement. The mania they generated on their trip to Delhi on the occasion of Independence Day celebrations only proved their star power. The final six contestants had the crowds dancing to their tune literally.
The top six contestants of Indian Idol met the press at the Claridge before the performance. Their newfound confidence and their single minded focus on achieving their goal has not taken away from their down to earth ways. In fact, the "seniors" in this young group take charge of the ones who get carried away with the attention in public. Their bonding was there for all to see.
The performance they put up at Rohini was simply mind-blowing. The thousands strong crowd simply went crazy. They just didn't seem to have enough of Ankita, Chang and Emon. While Puja, Prashant and Amit had the crowds applauding every song of theirs. If all that adulation translates into votes, it is going to be a very tough task to select the Indian Idol!
A true memorable evening for the contestants whose singing and popularity drove the crowds crazy. A proud moment for all the Indians as the patriotic fervour touched every Indian's heart.
The evening began with yet another surprise. Alisha Chinai took the stage to perform not one but two of her hit songs Made in India and Main sadke jaawaan . For a change it was a unanimous decision that Alisha Chinai is a true Indian Idol!
