About Indian Idol 2014As everybody knows, Indian Idol is a television reality show which brings out the hidden singing talent of many an Indian citizen. Bathroom singers to trained ones, beginners to experienced stage performers, there are a wide variety of genres to listen to. There is an initial round of auditions conducted in numerous towns and cities across India.
A panel of 3 or 4 judges will hear the vocals of participants during the auditions and select them for the next round. This next round generally is held in Mumbai from where there are further auditions and the most talented will be selected for the next stage of live television performances. Anu Malik, Salim Merchant and Sunidhi Chauhan have been part of the jury panel. Legends like Asha Bhosle have also been invited as guest judges during the live performances. Then there are numerous Bollywood celebrities appearing in different episodes to pep up the show, though primarily doing so to promote their forthcoming films.
The auditions for Season 8 of Indian Idol will soon begin. While we wait eagerly for the official announcement of the dates and venues of the audition rounds, the organizers of the show launched a unique online selection process. Anybody can record and upload a Hindi solo song on YouTube. Then share it on the Facebook page of Indian Idol 8.
