Super Singers !!

One of the recent programs that I have been watching kind of regularly is Asianet’s Idea super singer and Amrita TV’s Super Star Global. Both these programs have featured some amazing singers. After watching these two programs, I am now really convinced that in South, Kerala has got the best voices. And even more impressive point is the backing orchestra, especially the string section is just amazing !!

Perfection is the only word that comes to my mind.

Ganesh, Thanks for posting this song. My heart is so heavy as I finish the first song by Roopa...Like MJ said ( isn't he the bearded guy?)...I couldn't control my tears.! So wonderfully sung.

Talent is amazing in Gods own land..I was also impressed when watched it in India last year. The format is so nice and the Judges are so critical ( I remember wathching a program when our very own - Murali Ramanathan sang).

I'll watch the other 2 tomorrow and comment...I am just speechless..!!

I watched Durga and Arjad as well. God..wonderful voices ..what songs...what singing!!...I got goosebumps.

IR is God for me ! His melodies leave one speechless even today. These songs are some examples.

These guys and girls from Gods own Land..they've nailed such difficult songs with so much ease.

I liked Sarath's comment and his singing too.!!

I wish I get Asia Net at Home!!
