Indian Idol 3 is the most popular music contest telecast on Sony Entertainment Television Asia every Friday and Saturday at 9:00 pm. The Auditions for Indian Idol 3 were held throughout the country from big cities to small towns to select the best talent by a team of capable judges, who had made their mark in the Indian Music Industry.
At the end of the show on June 9, 2007 eleven participants were selected. The show began with the entrance of a new girl. Everyone was wondering as Mini revealed her name ‘Jolly Das’, she was one of the finalist who couldn’t participate in the finals of Indian Idol 2 as as she was down with chicken pox. The judges welcomed her as she sang Barso re megha from the film Guru.
From the performance of the girls the judges were asked to name the contestant whom they thought will be out. Alisha thought Smita will be out but Annu, Udit and Javed thought Richa will have to go as her voice has not fully matured. Mini announced the result- she declared Deepali, Richa, Charu, Smita and Pujja to be safe unfortunately Ankita couldn’t make it. Ankita was asked to sing for one last time before going by Alisha. Javed came up to the stage and danced to Ankita’s tunes as she sang Main sirf tera mehboob tu meri mehbooba. Seeing Ankita’s high spirits Javed said “Aaj Yeh ladki jeet gayi, main haar gaya”.
Now about the boys results, as usual the judges were asked for their opinion on whom they thought should go. Alisha’s answer was Prashant, Annu thought Abhishek wasn’t that good. Suhit was the choice of javed and Udit. Hussain declared that Emon, Chang, Parleen, Prashant and Abhishek are safe. Suhit was voted out. Suhit was so depressed that he couldn’t sing when he was asked to sing a song.
At the end of the episode the hosts Mini and Hussain were saying that the next Indian Idol is on the stage, to that Javed replied it might be so but two wild card entries will be done. The judges will choose 6 contestants from the piano round who will sing next week. The audience will have to choose two people among them by giving your valuable votes. So now there will be 13 contestants for the gala rounds of Indian Idol 3. Tune into Sony Entertainment Television every Friday and Saturday at 9:00 pm.
