Telugu Indian Idol Ep 3: Professional Singer Turns Participant!Telugu Indian Idol was launched last week on Aha Video and the audition rounds are currently taking place. The third episode is currently live on the streaming platform and the following are the important events that took place in the episode.

Participant 1 – Aditi Bhavaraju
Aditi is a professional singer who shot to fame with Coco-Cola Pepsi song from Venky Mama. She is also a part of Thaman’s team and his personal band. Despite becoming a professional singer already, she entered the reality show to showcase her face to everyone. She crooned her own song and bagged the Golden Mike.

Participant 2 – Jaskaran Singh
Jaskaran Singh has come to Hyderabad all the way from Punjab to sing in the Telugu Indian Idol. His dream is to sing a song for Allu Arjun’s film. In the competition, he sang Samajavaragamana from Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo and bagged the Golden Ticket.

Participant 3 – Maloth Karthika
Karthika is just a 14-year-old who comes from a small village. She sang ‘Manasuna Edo Ragam’ from Entha Vadduganie. However, the judges refused to take her in and suggested her to improve her singing by doing more practice.

After this, multiple other contestants showcased their singing skills but the judges rejected them.

Participant 4 – Chandra Kishan
Chandra Kishan from Vijayawada sang Manasa Manasa from Most Eligible Bachelor. He is not a proper singer and the organizers just used his presence to create some fun by mocking his voice.

Participant 5 – Harshavardhan from Tenali
Harshavardhan impressed all the judges by introducing his mother as his Guru. He sang Gelupu Thalupule from the film Theenmaar and impressed the judges again. He got the Golden ticket.

Participant 6 – Lakshmi Shravani from Hyderabad
Lakshmi Shravani crooned Rahtulla Rahtulla from the film Ghajini. She also received a Thumbs Up from the judges and took the Golden ticket.

Participant 7 – Renu Kumar from Tirupathi
Renu Kumar crooned Srivalli song in a way that those who listen to it will forget Sid Sriram’s voice. However, Thaman did not like him and expressed the same. Nithya Menen and Karthik liked him and gave him the Golden ticket.

M9News’s Take
Half of the show is running slow and the content being created in the form of comedy is not impressive. Even in the earlier episodes, they bought in a few participants and made fun of their voices. It happened in the third episode too. It is not very professional in front of the professionals for a professional singing reality show. Compared to the other singing reality shows we have seen in Telugu so far, Telugu Indian Idol needs to add some more color to make things attractive.
