Farce of Reality Music shows....

Another one bites the dust ............whats with this voting/ SMSing majority they don't seem to like any Female Participant ..............whether it was Deepika or Pooja in Indian Idol to a Sumedha or Poonam in Saregamapa to a Sumitra or Priyani of the Voice of India...........
What is it that they have against a Good female singer ................
Is it that, they think she is not good enough or could it be that they feel threatened by her...........I fail to understand.
And the irony of the whole situation is that in our music industry the one person who is revered maximum and is called the Nightingale of India is a female Singer Lata Mangeshkar.
When will we learn to appreciate music in its true and absolute form for what it is instead of seeing it as a male or female singer or from this region or that ...............

Secondly after seeing the results of Indian Idol 3 I feel the idea suggested by Himesh Reshammiya last year when Vineet lost in Saregamapa was right a good one.He said that the votes from the Home state of the participant should not be accepted when counting the Grand total ........which makes a lot of sense. Because then we will get a truly National singer and not a donkey backed by his home state who goes into oblivion once the show is over.

I hope good sense prevails before it is too late.

The reason for good singers not making it to the top is twofold. While the public voting for them is driven by the factors such as caste, community or place of the contestents, the judges don't choose the good ones beacause they are scared that they would be dethroned if the winners shoot to fame like shreya ghoshal and sunidhi chauhan have done(particularly if the judge is a singer him/herself). Even the wars of words between various judges are all stage managed to make the programme more interesting.
