Singer Sunidhi Chauhan who is one of the new judges on the Indian Idol 5, along with Anu Malik and Salim Merchant, wants the prospective singers coming on the show to be able to use every shade of their voices to be successful in the industry where there is tough competition.
Sunidhi wants to lay the emphasis on only the voice quality of the contestants, as opposed to the 'complete package" that the earlier seasons of the show have focused on. She feels that if a contestant is at ease singing genres like jazz, contemporary or classical, they will be able to carve a niche for themselves in the industry. Abhijeet Sawant, the winner of Indian Idol season 1, has his own recognition among the public.
The singer wants to be a good judge and help people find their true calling rather than humiliate them, like on a lot of reality shows. She hopes to be a good mentor. Sunidhi states that she has never harbored the dream of becoming an actress some day. She clarifies that she is a singer and would always like to remain a singer.
We suppose the contestants of 'Indian Idol 5" can breathe easy as they have Sunidhi. All they need to show is their talent and they"ll be fine.
