Despite being a trained classical singer, PVSN Rohit got nervous in his last performance and forgot the lyrics of “Tumse Milke Dil Ka” from Main Hoon Na. Though the judges of the show – Sonu Nigam, Anu Malik and Farah Khan ignored the mistake, but it looks like the audience didn’t spare him.
Revanth too had difficulty with Hindi lyrics initially, but he managed to overcome his weakness and went on to become one of the most popular contestants, giving some memorable performances during the entire season. Point to be noted is Revanth’s association with the music industry, which is now 200 songs old. He has a long list of songs in Telugu films and rose to fame with Baahubali: The Beginning’s “Manohari” song.
Khuda Baksh who hails from a small town in Punjab, has a huge female fan following. But it looks like his shy nature has made him lose his voters.
The winner of the show will officially be announced on Sunday, but the readers of indianexpress.com have made their choice, and he is LV Revanth. Stay tuned to this space to know who will emerge as the winner of Indian Idol 9.
