The second season stated with a a bash !

The contest was judged by well renowned music composer Salim Merchent, Youtube sensation Shraddha Sharma and Devraj Sanyal the Managing Director - Universal Music Group.

After sorting and searching for the top ten finalists out of over 200000 entries the finale was held on 10th of December at Vivanta by Taj , Mumbai

The list of finalist was as follows

The junior group:

The contest was divided into two rounds for each group.

The first round had a range of all kinds of songs.

Even the so called talent shows on T.V. might not have explored such young talent.

The first round ended with a performance from melodious Shraddha Sharma.

The second round very quickly after a lunch break .

Listening to all kind of music along with a live band we didn’t even realise that these are small kids 
singing of mere age group of 8 to 14 years.

After the completion of the second round  the most awaited performance happened !

Yeah Salim Merchant performed!
