The 12-hour Greatest Grand Finale of Indian Idol Season 12 is a testament to celebrating music in the most entertaining manner. I have had a wonderful stint as a judge on this show, and it makes me very proud to see the level of talent and the preparedness that they come with on a reality show. It’s a tough choice between the Top 6 finalists and I can’t wait to see who finally lifts the trophy this season.

Over the years, I have seen not just Indian Idol grow in its scale and reach, but also witnessed how the singing quality, the presentation and confidence of contestants has improved season after season. Every year, Sony Entertainment Television gives us hope for a brighter future for Indian music, and I am looking forward to watching these wonderful singers bloom in the industry. I think a 12-hour Finale is a befitting culmination to the season and I look forward to being a part of it.

I have been a contestant myself on a reality show in my early days and I can relate to the struggle and the anticipation that comes with it. Watching some of the contestants standing strong through their tough life yet aiming to fulfil their singing dreams from such close quarters, has been most heart-warming for me. They are all stars in their own right already and I am sure the music industry and music lovers will shower them with love beyond the show. The Greatest Finale Ever, stands true to its name and this 12-hour musical marathon is not just a celebration of music but also a celebration of talent that comes on this platform.
