Airtel Super Singer III

So they managed to ruin this one too. They had an opportunity to make a decent show and instead they made it into a stupid ass mega serial. I have not bothered to watch this show for months now. I recently got to know that sucky singers such as Raginishree, Vijay Narayanan etc have been "un-eliminated" and are back in the fray. I was also told that the show went on to comment that some blogs had unfairly criticised Raginishree. I now agree with that view. The show and Raginishree are made for each other the same way Malathy & Manmadha Raasa, E & P, Flies & Garbage, Deivayani & Homely Girl are made for each other. Ravi is out of place in that show the way M.S. Subbulakshmi would be if she had to sing for an item song. He is the one who should really be eliminated.

I guess one has to give credit to Chinmayee when it is due. Any sensible person would walk out of this stupid show and she did.

Absolutely true :)

hahaha @ E & P. Loved it in Oram Po.....

All these reality shows suffer from the same problem. Overly dramatizing things to the point it becomes irritating and then grossly unfair. And it is not only Indian shows, but even American Idol suffers from such a problem. What to do, namba pasanga want to copy the negative stuff also. The mindless ellarun kanathla vizhundha, naangalum vizhuvom theory.

It is another thing that there is an audience for such gimmicks.

Cant agree more with you on this.. they managed to ruin this one too!! Its another cheap mega serial now..

And I am at a loss of words to describe people like laks!! what cheap thrill do these people get letting out spoilers?

Oh yeah, I called it a mega serial and that justifies you letting out spoilers.. completely.

I am in the west coast.. episodes are telecasted with a delay.. so the spoiler which u let out has not been telecasted yet

Your logic is like someone watching a movie on the 1st day 1st show and letting out spoilers just because the movie is already released..

Its my mistake that I thought people know about DVR concept.. and that people watch episodes at leisure during the weekend.. just like some sane people waiting for the weekend to catch up on movies

Even if the episode is out in India.. there is a simple etiquette of giving a spoiler alert..

I used to hate Raginishree.. But just look at the last 3 episodes where she was the show stealer. I agree as Srinivas also pointed out that her voice is not the "typical heroine's voice". Carnatic round (man.. she was really rocking...), western round and this week's relationship round - in all the 3 she was awesome. Please listen to her performances before you comment. She justified her comeback. But she undoubtedly cannot be a super singer. Vijay's voice is very good for certian types of songs - esp "Veyilodu Vilayadi" in relationship round was a tremendous effort.

ps 2: I swear, I am not related to ragini in any way. :)

Laks,

I reposted your comment with spoiler removed. I know you didn't mean to put out the spoiler deliberately .. so no issues. Just as background

There are many people in US who watch it in US in techsatish or Vijay TV a few weeks after it is telecasted in India.

All,

I apologize for not spotting this earlier. I just saw the comment section. Just because I now suddenly dislike this show it is unfair to surprise a reader with this spoiler. So I removed it.

Laks said...

Anon,

Why should you bother about "who is eliminated" in a "cheap mega serial" ?

I was just trying to show my disppointment that a singer with good potential got eliminated. Also I posted this only 2 days after the program was telecasted.

Hawkeye said...

Laks,

edited another comment of your too :-)

It is not super singer 2008.
It is a very cheap show.
The so called singers ( judges) are too much.
It is a good publicity for those
singers.
In fact, no listeners but singers only
The public should judge the performences after all they make it success or failure.

Why husband and wife to host the super singer 2008 . ( not at all,It is 2009.now old name) Talks too much.
There are more young hosts in Chennai.
Why this old couple? Too bad. Show is boring.

devi said...

I guess ..it would be unfair to comment raaginisri..because she defn is a good singer ..v good in certain genre of songs..that makes her voice unique..Everyone rite now...the grp is 6 is very talented in their own ways...ravi being the best...ofcourse.as we all know...if u ask renu to sing a peppy number like thoodhu varuma..no its not gonahappen....Ragini is extremely talented jus that her voice range is less and she needsto take such songs...she was rocking in the recent shows..sowkiyama.and all.was v nice..its a v tuff song and i thot she defn made justice to it...and her notes were good..jus that her voice was strained...im sure..renu canot sing that song with such clarity...if given a chance....tho shes got a v pretty voice....I love this show....but jus that its too dragging..looks like..things are wrapping up now..and Iam all excited to see the forthcoming shows.:).

devi said...

yeah i too feel ..chinmayi shud have been there..yugi and malini are doing a fairly decent job..but its nice to have chinmayi..she used to do performances once in a while..and they r missing now.

devi said...

the orchestra spoilt it .actually..fr nee partha paarvaiku ...poor thing.........it didnt sound anywhere like the orginal..bad choice f sng..else ..ragini cud have made it..and ..poor gal..she shud have chosen a nice song..and sang atleast 1 0 lines...paadu nilave was so short..and knowing ehr range is less.wondering why she took that high sruthi.................ravi n renu duet was jus perfect:).............

defn vijay has learnt and caught that secret..hes sounding v good..and also ajeesh i thot..sumthing is wrong with him....he shows no interestn the last two shows...v sober..usually ajeesh does so wel....may be hes jus bored:)

thank you devi.yes I too miss Chinmayee. She brought this super singers progarm, from ground level to roof top level. Three hearty cheers for Chinmayee.

I have watched Americon idle ,and
Britain got talents.

I noticed the judges speak less but in super singers program.it sthe other way.

Those singers are speaking too much. unni,srini, and sujatha.
They are singers and not speakers.
Let them go for a speech training program.

According to me the show is going really very well.I enjoy watching all the episodes.
I too was missing Chinmayi.But now I became used to Malini & Yugi.They r doing a good job too.
Please dont discourage any contestants.They r putting lots of hardwork.I dont know why u people hate raghinisri.She did a fantastic job after the come back.
Ravi is being very consistent.He brings out perfection in whatever song he performs.I'm still in hangover of his Isai Kettal performance.
Renu she has got such a heavenly voice.She takes us somewhere with her heavenly voice.
Cant forget her onnavida & vaanaville in semifinals.
Ajeesh did an excellent job in semifinals.Thoongatha vizhigal and poojaikkaaga was mind blowing.
Judges r being very fair.
They r totally giving justice to the show.Sujatha always smiles whether she is saying +ve yaa -ve.
I just luv watching the show.

A super singer is one who can sing all kinds of songs. Raginisri is ofcourse very talented but she cannot sing melodious numbers or songs of high range. I ve never heard Renu sing a tough song. Prasanna performed well in all the episodes and he is able to sing all kinds of songs. I love watching this program because I love music. I am a singer myself but not as good as these contestants. Each one of the contestants are good in some aspect or the other. Lets encourage them. Ive met Ajish and his mom in one of the competitions (Karoake Kafeoke)and he could not get through in that competition. But now he has proved it by getting into the finals of airtel super singer. Vijay sang a beautiful ghazal in front of singer Hariharan. Chanceless singing. I could not believe that Vijay could sing so well. All the best to the finalists.
