Recently, director-singer Amit Kumar graced Indian Idol 12 as a special guest. The weekend episode was dedicated to legendary singer Kishore Kumar. Along with the judges- Neha Kakkar, Himesh Reshammiya, contestants paid tribute to the legendary singer by singing his most popular songs.
However, netizens were not happy with the episode and took to social media to troll judges and contestants for their bad performances. They asked judges not to spoil Kishore Kumar's songs, slammed the judges for their unwanted interference while the contestants sang the song with their comments 'wah wah' and 'kya baat hai', and for unwanted and fake drama (by getting emotional). They even didn't like the contestants' performances and asked judges to give honest feedback. Take a look at a few tweets!
"Its a humble request to @iAmNehaKakkar and #HimeshReshammiya and #AnuMalik to not to insult #KishoreKumar and #RDBurman by your pathethic singing skill. Kal ka episode bekaar tha lagra hai antakshri khelre hai. @SonyTV#indianidol#IndianIdol2021."
"Listening to #NehaKakkar and #HimeshReshammiya sing Kishore Kumar's song is more painful than watching #Dhoni 's run-out in WC19. #indianidol CREDITS-@iamaditya021. PHUCKING PHACT :) ."
"Someone stop #HimeshReshammiya and #NehaKakkar from singing Kishore Da's songs. They are really spoiling it yaar. They are good in singing but not his songs. #IndianIdol12."
"The standard of Indian Idol is falling with every season. The contestants sang so badly but the judges hyped them up as if no one could sing the song better than them. Roti kitna hai ye Kakkar. 30 mins I won't get back 😑 #IndianIdol."
"Over the top unwanted rona dhona, woh #NehaKakkar ka goosebumps ka naatak, and most important fake garibi dikhana #trp ke liye. #indianidol became worst. Many special guests also cry, why?"
"#IndianIdol2021 #NehaKakkar #AnuMalik #AdityaChopra Please don't sing or say wah wah during the contestants are performing. It doesn't looks nice for us watching or #sony can mute the microphones."
