YAY! Sreeram won! Sreeram won Indian Idol 5. The most deserving participant in this series.
The show’s format has observed many changes and modifications since its first version. Talented singers from every nook and corner of India are auditioned and few are zeroed in to take part in the major contest held at Mumbai.
Fortunately or unfortunately, the elimination process is based on the votes gained from viewers. There are many more things that are taken into consideration other than talent when a vote is given to a contestant.
His/her region, personality, looks and many more. That could be the reason why Arpita Khan, Shashi and Shivam Pathak of series 5 were eliminated at a very wrong time. They have the caliber to reach to top 5, but votes made all the difference.
Majority of the audiences were supporting Sreeram from the very beginning. Almost of all his performances were impressive. The major element where he differed from others is his consistency in performance and a composed attitude.
The awareness created by individuals and media in Andhra Pradesh also helped Sreeram in his title achievement. Karunya one of the contestants in Indian Idol – 2 had to fore-go majorly because of the voting deficiency from AP. South India being a non-Hindi belt don’t watch the Hindi channels and thus don’t get a chance to comment on any National media shows.
- Sreeram also made a unique record of never entering the bottom 3 in Indian Idol. A record which cannot be surpassed very easily.
- He is also the first person to get an opportunity to sing for a movie, while still being at Indian Idol.
- He is the first South Indian (He hails from Hyderabad, AP) to win the title of Indian Idol.
Winning the title is a milestone in his career. In terms that more people got to know about Sreeram. His talent. But the real challenge lies ahead. How best he can save this fame to strengthen himself more and more beyond the one year contract period with Sony.
Along with talent, patience and will power are important to make it big in the entertainment industry.
I wish his future gets better and better. May the force be with him!
