How the Contestants are selected for the Show?
No matter whom the judges, host or the celebrity guests on a reality show are, it is the contestants and participants that determine the success or the failure of the show. The unique format allows the people to watch the contestants perform live but even the selection process is something new.
All the people who wanted to be a part of this show registered themselves online and visited the auditions venues across the country. After a couple of screen tests including singing in front of the show’s judges, the top contestants were selected for the final round.
Each week, on the basis of live voting, a contestant who secures the lowest amount of votes from the people will be eliminated and the winner would be declared on the finale of the show.
