Update on 'New on the Tube'...

Just to continue from my previous post...

The Marathi Singing Competition 'Idea Sa Re Ga Ma Pa' is now in its final stages.. 3 contestants remain.. while overall it has been a good show, the last few weeks seem as if the show is being stretched unneccessarily.. they actually had 8-9 rounds of the final !!!.. a round a week .. with one person being eliminated each week.. now we are down to 3 ppl (2 guys and a gal).. Must appreciate the fact that even though ppl have been listening to them for over 3 months now, the contestants manage to impress each time in a different genre of songs !!!... The sad part is that the general allegations of vote favouring/rigging have surfaced.. the story being that one of the participants was actually voted out by the public (through the now-omnipresent SMS route) but the judges (who now have a minimal say in the selection) insisted on that participant being retained.. would be a pity if such controversies mar what would be a good finale to a good show !!

May the best person win !!!
