Airtel Super Singer – Wild Card round 2 and the results

This is the results week and I have a fair idea as to who might make it to the finals. It seems that they are going to have another round for the Wild Card contestants and the judges are going to pick one finalist of their choice. This makes two more contestants who will reach the finals adding to the three already there.

Well Airtel Super Singer always keeps adding people more than the required number. Anyways as long as they don’t have best of three finals, I am okay with it. So I am thinking that it’s going to be between, Prasanna (Viewers vote), Santosh and Ranjani (Judge’s choice). I think that its going to be the end of the road for Raghini and Vijay. It was always on the cards as the judge’s like Ranjani very much which was much evident with their over the top praise of “Porale Ponnuthayi”.

Vijay and Raghini are excellent singers and I hope that they do well in music. I hope that they don’t give up singing. As for the rest of the three contestants, I am guessing that Prasanna might make it to the finals through the viewers vote. The other spot is an interesting one. Santosh shocked the judges with his incredible singing on the day 3 of Wild Card round 1 and now Ranjani might not be their obvious choice.

Ranjani was steady over the three days and I found nothing spectacular in her performances last week. The judges though kept on undermining the rest of the singers to praise Ranjani, which makes me think she might be the judge’s choice. I hope that Santosh gets a chance but I guess Vijay Tv might want to keep another female contestant in the finals with Renu.

Anyways let’s see how it unfolds this week. If anyone already know the result please let me know.

Airtel Super Singer – Uravugal round

Airtel Super Singer began yesterday and I haven’t written anything about it as I did not follow it from the beginning. I missed Prasanna and Renu on the first day, so thought let me wait for the day 2 to complete. Well Day 2 completed yesterday and it was a good round.

All the singers were in their elements yesterday and the best performances came from Ravi, Ajeesh and Prasanna. The Uravugal round required the contestants to sing about friendship the first day and about Mother the second day. The first day saw Raghini immunized. She sang “Magic Journey” song from Anjali and gave a good performance. The rest of the performances were also good on day one. Vijay was very good with Veyil song and so was Ravi with his “Oh Nandalala” song.

The second day had 6 singers to perform and everyone did a good job. Ravi and Ajeesh were very good and Ravi was rightly immunized after yesterday’s Mother’s round. Again Vijay and Prasanna were good. Ranjani and Renu though gave ordinary performances as far as I am concerned. It seems like anything Renu does is fine for the judges. I keep hearing the same phrase every time from the judges that “Renu has a good voice”.

It’s getting boring now and it’s high time that she tries something different. She seems like a Sujatha type singer and the one who does not like to experiment too much. Most of the times you see her singing the same way without much improvisation but still the judges praise her like anything. Yesterday I can tell at least twice in her performance she had breathing issues but the judges completely ignored that in their comments.

For some reason even though Prasanna gave a good performance they were making some huge deal about his acting on stage. I thought it was a very unfair comment. Prasanna is one of the singers who are able to bring life and emotion to a song which is essential for a play back singer. Ask SPB he will say so. It’s not like Prasanna was all over the place with his singing but still the comments were not required yesterday. It seems like they are already finding a reason to eliminate him so that their favorite Renu can go all the way.

I call it biased but I am thinking that Prasanna is being punished for not learning music. Anyways that’s my opinion. Let’s waits and see how it goes today. Five singers still to perform one more time before the elimination happens. I will be back with the third day’s review tomorrow.

Airtel Super Singer western round – Preview

Airtel Super Singer moves to western round this week and yes we still have 7 contestants. The judges decided to keep all the 7 after last week’s classical round as they felt that it was varying amount of training which separated the contestants. So they did not want to penalize the contestants for their lack of classical training.

This week though it’s going to be different as it is western round and I am sure there is going to elimination. This round will be interesting and I think Vijay and Prasanna will be really relieved after they scraped through classical round.

This round will be strong point for Prasanna and Vijay and I expect them to sail through. I watched few rushes from the show and it seems like Anupama will be the chief guest of the show. They showed performances of Ravi, Ranjani and Vijay in the trailer and it seems like they rocked the stage with their performances. At least Ravi and Vijay did, I am not sure about Ranjani though.

It will be interesting to see Ajeesh and Renu perform in this round as I feel that they will be the ones who might not get spot selected. Raghini and Prasanna might have it easy in this round but I am not sure if they will be spot selected.

Well let’s wait and see what transpires in today’s show. I am expecting a fun round and hopefully it will be great.
