spirited The 12 semi-finalists at the competition.

Talent hunts always have a charm to them. The music, fresh faces, comments by the judges and the cheering crowd add to make it an event to remember.

The semi-finals of ‘Voice of Bangalore Season-6’, held at the Garuda Mall recently, was such an occasion.The event saw 12 participants, of which six were chosen for the final round of the talent hunt.

There were two different categories for the competition and most of the participants sang a Kannada and a Hindi number. The judges — Sandalwood playback singer Rajesh Krishnan; film director and actor Prem; actor Mahesh Babu and soundtrack
composer and singer Arjun Janya — encouraged the participants shedding light on their performances and advising them on how to improve their performance in the future.


The participants showcased one impressive performance after another with confidence and completely enjoying themselves.

Raksha Achar K A, a first-year PUC  student and one of the finalists, was very excited. “I love the show, and I got to learn a lot from it. It’s a really homely set-up. The judges were also so nice and unlike other talent hunts, there were no
pressures or strain.”

Vijeth Urs M, a BBM student and another finalist, talks about his experience. “We got to explore many different types of songs. My main weakness was classical singing, and I had to undergo proper training for the same.

I got to perform songs with different taalas and ragas.” Other finalists were Ashwin Sharma, Jimmy Francis Jhon, Jinsha K Nanu and Samikshya Mishra Prarthana Hemanth, who had come to watch the show, says, “I was here to cheer my cousin, who was chosen from the last round.

This is a great platform to bring in fresh talent to the industry, and the City should have more of these shows.” Sreekalayani Kumar, a senior citizen, who was
absolutely excited about the show says, “We wish such programmes had been there when we were younger. It’s nice to see young talent being recognised.”
