Idol worship continues...
THE TOP-THREE finalist of Indian Idol-II rocked the city on Friday. The talented Karunya, Anuj and Sandeep sang for the Lucknowites at Sahara Ganj.
There was tremendous excitement among the youngsters, particularly in the evening, when the three performed to a huge crowd. The crowd sang, clapped and danced with the three with some of them even picking up surprise gifts.
All three finalists
The three were at their best when they sang ‘Woh pehli bar hum tum mile…’ together. It’s a song from their album. Of course, through it, the trio did not forget to remind the crowd to ‘Vote for us—through SMS and phone — but on the basis of pure music, not on region’.
Earlier, the three youngsters were to perform at the Lucknow University but their show was put off because of the ruckus on campus. They were then aired on Radio City and spent an hour answering questions from fans phoning in on the show ‘Cable Calling’ aired by a local channel.
The trio also ‘rocked’ Planet M with hit solo numbers and a group song. People waiting since morning loved Bijuria bijuria… Kawa kawa… and Dil le gai kudi… They interacted with the audience which won surprise gifts like CDs, T-shirts and caps. The show was conducted by Madhukar.
The trio also performed at Wave East End Mall. Anuj presented ‘Pretty Woman’ and ‘Bheege honth tere…’, Sandeep rocked the crowd with ‘Jeene ke hain char din…’ and ‘Jhalak dikhla ja…’ while Karunya was at his best with ‘Kawa kawa…’ and ‘Woh Lamhe…’.
The episode that will be aired on Sony TV on March 28 will be shot at Sahara Ganj on Saturday evening. The recording of Friday’s performance will also be included in the episode. The show will include hosts Aman Varma and Mini Mathur.
