Cricket Fever might be over!!! But this Fever lasts even now for a youngster who came well dressed , to enter a cricket match. So will this “Cricketer for the Future” break all norms and become the “Bharat ki Shaan” too?

The next contestant Nirmalai, was an accomplished singer. He came to the Audition with all the proof, with his certificates and medals. But do all these matter at the end? Or does all depend on the day, well, let us find out in tonight’s episode.

There was this youngster who said he wanted to introduce western classical to Indians. He played a Mexican piece on his guitar...however the guitar literally drowned his voice, so he was asked by the judges to sing without his guitar. So will his voice sans the guitar impress the judges?


Indian Idol went Global for the first time this week, and it was a time to celebrate for all the Indians living in Dubai. It was an emotional moment for them, as their participation in Indian Idol brought them much closer to their own country. The mood in the studio was upbeat , the whole atmosphere in Dubai was festive and had a feel of patriotism and family bonding in it.
