This week two new musical reality shows have started in two different channels, Star Plus and 9X, to give company to Zee SaReGaMaPa L'il Champs. After watching all three shows, one thing was sure - the viewers were left spell bound and at a loss of words. If Soha Ali Khan in Zee L'il Champs mesmerized all, then in SVOI Chhote Ustaads, it was Shreya and the little kids in the company of Kunal and Pritam who did it, while in 9X, it was the incapability to understand the concept and all that talks by Simone Singh, which left viewers flabbergasted and at a loss of words.
In Zee SaReGaMaPa L'il Champs, there were two eliminations to make up for no elimination last week. Two popular kids Sagar and Vaishali got eliminated. There were some power packed performances and Amir stole everyone’s heart with his “Teri Deewani” so much so that Sonu went up to him to give him a hug and a kiss. Rohanpreet’s Punjabi style birthday celebration was another highlight – it was totally unique. Soha Ali Khan impressed everyone with her vivacious and yet down to earth nature. The viewers could hardly take their eyes off her. She was such a brilliant guest making the participants feel so cherished and wanted.
Three shows, three different channels, three different choices. We will have to wait and see which one appeals to the viewers most, and which one does not. All three shows have two things in common – respectable judges, and impressive participants. Now all that remains to be seen is the packaging of the show to hold on to the viewers’ attention.
