Please don’t stop the music

It’s no surprise that I enjoy music. Right from my “About me” page to giving every new post a title using lyrics, it may be very clear. If not all of this, the fact that my blog name is The Silent Hummer should give this fact away! How else can I express it?
Last evening I received my first blogger invitation, a proper formal email invite, to attend a #Blogadda event. An invite I gladly accepted.

“I am blogging to share my experience of the #YSS2 i-genius Young Singing Stars Season II in association with Blogadda.”

Today Max Life insurance’s I-Genius Young Singing Talent (Season 2) had it’s Grand Finale. It was held at Taj Vivanta, Mumbai. The event was scheduled to begin at 11:00am, and the punctuality freak that I am, I made sure to reach on time. After a couple of calls to the organizers, a cup of coffee and introducing myself, I got a seat just behind the judges, In the second row. Psst..I had this little *proud moment dance* in my head when I saw “Reserved” on my seat as those seats were for the media and bloggers..
Blogger Life- wohooo!

There were 5 junior contestants and 5 senior.
Juniors : Kirtana, Chelsy, Tannishtha (Junior category winner), Pranjali & Harmanpreet
Seniors: Arth, Maithili (Senior category winner), Chirag, Chahat & Sonakshi

I know in today’s world kids are talented, but I honestly did not expect this level of talent here. However one by one as they took to the stage, they were such a surprise!! All of them were disciplined, not only in behavior but also their singing. In fact, one of the contestants Pranjali not only sang a song well but later revealed she was the composer of her song “Maayere” too. Truly one better than the other. I’m sure their gurus and parents are extremely proud of them.

It’s easy to say the judges Salim Merchant, Shraddha Sharma & Devraj Sanyal had such a lovely time judging this finale. Their smiles, the foot tapping, the recording on their phones said it all. Shraddha sang beautifully for the audience and when Salim went on stage, his very voice took over the mood there! He sang his popular songs like “Khudaya Ve” , ” Ishqwala Love” and the audience enjoyed every bit of it!

Also, as I mentioned earlier, I had reached the venue on time and saw Salim Merchant rehearsing with the band. During his little break I got him to pose with me for a pic, here check this! Reward for punctuality!
