The fate of these contestants lay in the hands of the viewers unlike earlier rounds were judges where they decided who moved forward and who didn’t. Now, the judges are very anxious as well as excited to see the viewers choose their favorites. They are anxious as they want to ensure that the audience makes the correct selection. Udit Narayan, a famous Bollywood playback singer and Indian Idol judge says, "We have got some really talented and confident contestants from across the country and even overseas this time. Now the mammoth task is to chisel diamonds out of carbon. We have done our bit and we have now put the mantle on the audiences. I am sure they will make the right decision in choosing their 'Bharat ki Shaan’.”
Another judge, Anu Malik, one of India’s leading music composer, requests the voters to judge carefully just as they did: "Humne sambhalke chune hai, aap bhi sambhalke chuniye. Suron ki baarish hone ko hai, inhe dil lagake suniye."
Most of these contestants are between the ages of 17 and 27 and will be debuting on national television. Here are the names and details of the contestants.
14 Girls Vs 14 Boys
One of these 28 contestants will be our next Indian Idol – Bharat ki Shaan. Who is Bharat ki shaan? Albert Almeida, Executive Vice President and Business Head of Sony Entertainment television said, "In the third season of Indian Idol, we have set out on a journey to search for that one voice which will truly live up to the proposition of Indian Idol, 'Bharat Ki Shaan'. Our judges have been diligent and have fulfilled their responsibility of bringing the best potential candidates on to your television screens until the Piano Round. While they will continue to voice their opinions, the ultimate decision will rest with the viewers who will cast their precious votes. With voting lines being open, we are sure the world's largest democracy will tune-in and call in large numbers to pick their next Indian Idol."
