They say that 'any publicity is good publicity' and it seems like the makers of Indian Idol 12 are following suit. The singing reality show has been mired in controversies ever since the beginning. On one hand, it has been entertaining the audience with some amazing performances from the current lot of contestants, on the other hand, the show has been at the receiving end of severe criticism.
In the past, viewers have accused the makers of Indian Idol 12 of cashing in on sob stories of the contestants. Some of them have called them out for faking a love angle between Pawandeep Rajan and Arunita Kanjilal. Then a certain section of the audience felt that the makers were being biased towards Sawai Bhatt while others talked about forcing the contestants to say certain things in order to boost the show's TRPs.
There's no doubt that Indian Idol 12 is one of the top trending shows on Indian television. But there's also no denying that the reality show has been reduced to a daily soap and there seems to be no competition among the contestants at all. The show's judges Neha Kakkar, Himesh Reshammiya and Vishal Dadlani are often seen getting overwhelmed with contestants performances. In their responses, they have declared all the contestants as winners because they all are singing brilliantly on stage. But viewers are yearning to see the contestants to compete against each other, root for them on social media and help them win the show by voting them. Unfortunately, the show has apparently failed to fulfill the audience's requirements.
The Kishore Kumar special episode turned out to be disastrous after Amit Kumar, son of legendary singer Kishore Kumar, recently said that he wanted to the episode to stop. He also said that he didn't like Neha and Himesh singing Kishore Kumar songs as they couldn't match up to the level. Fans also brutally trolled the judges for ruining the iconic songs by singing in their own styles. They called Indian Idol 12 the worst season ever.
While the makers of the show give two hoots about audience's reactions, we decided to conduct a poll to determine whether the current judges trio should be replaced to bring it back to its original stature.
