'I was not given the chance to select my song'- Ujjaini Mukherjee

Ujjaini Mukhejee, the first contestant from the champion's team to get eliminated from Jo Jeeta Wohi Supestar talks about her exit from the show.

Ujjaini Mukherjee, from Kolkata who earlier participated in Himesh Reshmaiya’s Rock Gharana during Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2005 and later went on to win the singing show, Ek Mein Aur Ek Tu with Ashwirya, was the first contestant to get ousted from Star Plus new reality show Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar.

Participating in the show as a Champion, Ujjaini when asked about her elimination said, “I was expecting my elimination this week because my last week’s performance was very bad and I got the least score from the judges”. However, the girl could not believe her ears when Mandira Bedi announced that she was in the bottom Three. “I blasted out when Mandira gave me the news that I am in the bottom three”, quips Ujjaini.

Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar being the third reality show for her, the girl avers that she had no tension whatsoever to participate with the best of the best. But the only disappointment for her is that, “I was given the song by the channel and could not select the song of my choice for my last week’s performance. I feel I could not give my 100 percent to the song and hence did not do well and this is my only regret now”.

When Ujjaini got an opportunity to sing on one of her favourite song ‘Maiyya Maiyya’, the singer found herself out of the competition. “ All said and done, I sang ‘Maiyya Maiyya’ before I left the stage”, says the sad yet confident Ujjaini.

shes a good singer but compared to the other champions she was horrible...her performance singing yeh ishq hai looked like a first time singer who has never participated in a singing competition.

But this is her 3rd one and she still doesnt have to hang of it!

What chance is she speaking of??? She has to sing well for judges to think she had one bad performance. Her singing is gone down and wants another chance???

Well she was bound to be out with a singing performance like that.
