PostSubject: Star Amul - Voice Of India   Sun Nov 25, 2007 8:48 am

Star Voice of India is an Indian Television singing competition that premiered on 18 May 2007. It is the first Indian singing competition produced by STAR Plus. The show is directed by Gajendra Singh, creator of the famous Sa Re Ga Ma Pa series and also features judges that were on the Sa Re Ga Ma Pa series, Aadesh Srivastav, Abhijeet Bhattacharya, Alka Yagnik, Lalit Pandit and Jatin Pandit. Shaan is hosting the SVOI and has left Sa Re Ga Ma Pa. For unknown reasons, the show does not air on Star Plus in the United Kingdom.

Regional Auditions Phase

The Auditions were held in the following cities in India each between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. :

Kolkata: Swabhumi 89 C, Maulana Abdul Kalam Avenue (700054) - 29 April
Mumbai: Bhavans College, Munshi Nagar, Dadabhai Road, Andheri West - 4 May
Indore: Hotel Fortune Land Mark, Vijaynagar, Indore - 5 May
Delhi: Shankarlal Hall Delhi University Main Campus - 11 May
Jaipur: Jai Club, Mahavir Marg, C Scheme, Jaipur - 12 May
Lucknow: Ravindralaya Auditorium, Charbagh, Lucknow - 18 May

Structure of auditions
Auditions for the show were held in the Indian cities shown above. Judges had then finally chosen 17 contestants out of the thousands that auditioned and the 17 contestants performed on the first two episodes of the show.

Shortcut to auditions
In addition, there was another "shorter" way to audition from May 1, 2007 at 9:00 a.m. to May 10, 2007 at 11:59 p.m. that required the participant to be a subscriber and registered user of Hutchison Essar Telecom Limited ("Hutch"). The participant had to call 12399 from their Hutch mobile number and follow the instructions that required the participant to sing a song from their phone and asked personal details that would be recorded. If the participant didn't follow all the instructions given to them, the participant's entry would have be null and void. Inaudible and unclear entries would also not have been accepted.

The participant was only allowed to sing Hindi songs with a duration of up to 60 seconds. If the song went beyond 60 seconds, the song would not have been considered while judging the talent of the participant.

Of all the participants that entered, the producers and representatives listened to a hundred randomly selected entries that were received during the contest and selected 5 winning participants that were believed to have the best voice among those who entered.

After five contestants were chosen, they were finally eligible to directly participate in the official auditions of the show held in Lucknow without having to wait in the queue for the auditions.


The prizes offered to the winner are:- 1. A contract for personal album with Big Music 2. A Chevorlet Car

Apathy of Judges
This contest has not been far from inaccurate judgment by jury. Basis of selection of jury are not consistent with the criteria used for judging performances. Jury members like composers Jatin and Lalit Pandit have been observed to accuse young performers of trying to copy voices of legendary singers on several occasions. However it can't be ignored that these jury members themselves have gained fame by plagiarizing other's work. Judge Aadesh Shrivastav began to use increasingly insulting comments towards the 'Prithvi' Team. In example when Arshpreet was voted out by the public, he commented that Arshpreet had not forgotten any songs or done any drama. This was clearly directed towards Abhilasha of the Prithvi team who had forgotten a song during the past performance and was not given a chance to redeem herself. The Agni also used the professional voice of Sunidhi Chauhan to aid two of their singers in their songs, while Prithvi did not. But over the times all the judges have proved to be supportive and confidant irrespective of which team the contestant belongs to. Alka supported Harshit belonging to the other team (Prithvi) when he forgot lyrics in Sanjay Dutt's episode. Jatin & Aadesh also praised Abhilasha (Agni) on her various superb performances.

Amul Star Voice of India (Star Plus)

Gajendra Singh shifted his famous show Voice of India to Star Plus as Amul Star Voice of India. The show is still being hosted by Shaan and the panel of Judges is still the same as Jatin-Lalit, Aadesh Shrivastav, Alka Yagnik and Abhijeet Bhattacharya. Auditions were held in many cities under the supervision of these five judges. Finally they got last 32 contestants who were again tested and they finally got 14 but as they wanted last 12 so they again tested them.

Wild Card Entry

Wildcard Contestants:

On Friday, October 5th, Toshi, Abhas and Priyani made it to the top three among the wildcard contestants. Originally, the hosts had intended to select only two of these three, and Toshi Sabri and Abhas had scored the highest votes. Abhas had scored only 16 votes more than Priyani, hence all the judges revised their decision and pressed for Priyani to be brought back into the show, citing that a difference of 16 votes is negligible in a contest where lakhs of votes are sent.
