If your favourite singer of television's most watched reality shows - Amul Star Voice of India, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa, Fame Gurukul and Indian Idol - didn't win the title, here's another chance to cast your precious vote for them. Star Plus brings you yet another opportunity to identify the je ne sais quoi; the fire that separates the better from the best in Clinic All Clear - Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar.
The first episode to be aired on Friday, April 11 at 10 pm, will have the 12 challengers perform while judges Farah Khan, Vishal and Shekhar give their comments on their performance. Prajakta Shukre overwhelmed the judges with her rendition of the song, Aal Ki Raat and ended up being be the top scorer of the evening while Rahul Vaidya, Vineet, Harshit and Toshi were also applauded for their singing abilities.
Setting the mood and beginning the day's performance were Aishwarya and Debojeet who make an unconventional entry riding atop their bikes. Once on stage, they are joined by Rooprekha, Ujjaini, Ishmeet and Abhijeet and in chorus the group sings, "Rang jamake jayenge chakkar chala ke jayenge" and "Bachke rehna re baba".
However, the moments of excitement are short-lived. Amit Tondon got harsh remarks and was severely criticized by the judges as they feel that though his physical appearance was very attractive but his singing was way below the mark. Shekhar felt Amit has a lot of soul and innocence in his voice on the other hand Farah felt that the soul was missing while Shekhar felt that there was simplicity in his voice like Mukeshji's. On hearing the comments of the judges, Amit breaks down, more so because his wife was in the studio to see his performance for the first time.
On the other hand, Shekhar tells Amit Sana that he has not made any improvement in his singing and that they are highly disappointed with him as he even missed his track. The lowest scorer of the episode was Sumitra Iyer who performed on Aa dekhe jara. Co-participant, Rooprekha also felt that Sumitra was singing with extra josh to which Vishal responded that the song required extra energy
In an attempt to liven the atmosphere Farah commented that she was Ravindra Ravi's fan but unfortunately his song did not impress the judges. The evening was packed with performances by the other participants of the show such as Toshi Sabri, Vineet Singh, Rahul Vaidya, Neha Kakkar, Himani, Ishmeet, Harshit etc.
Watch your all time favourite singers perform in the opening episode of Clinic All Clear - Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar, Friday, April 11, 2008, 10 pm only on Star Plus.
