Adnan Sami 'Lifts' Indian Idol to new Heights!
Indian Idol has reached its penultimate stage. The top three are in place. The three young men were looking like rock stars. They are singing at their best. Today Adnan Sami 'Lifts' the Sprits of the Top 3 Contestants in Indian Idol. Everybody was as delighted as the contestants to have him on stage with the contestants singing Aa raha hoon main from Dhamaal the film that boasts of having Adnan as the music composer. Each contestant sang two songs each… all Kishore Kumar numbers of Adnan's choice.
Emon swept everybody off their feet with his opening number…Yeh jo mohhabat hai from Kati Patang. After last week's controversy and arguments about his singing, Javed Akhtar was very happy with his singing and performance. Prashant followed it up with a delightful rendition of Ek ladki beegi bhaagi si.. Annu Malek's whole hearted praise reduced the young man to tears. It was the first time anybody had showered him with so much praise. When Amit sang, time seemed to stand still. The judges were unanimous in their verdict…the film industry has found a new singing sensation they said.
In the next round the contestants dedicated songs to their loved ones. Emon dedicated Banke tera jogi to his parents. Prashant dedicated to his friends in the police force Bheege honth tere… Amit the emotional one amongst them dedicated to his grand mother … Betaab dil… for which he bagged full marks from Javed Akhtar.
The evening ended on a high note with the jugalband between Adnan and Fazal Qureishi the talented younger brother of Ustad Zakir Husain.
