Salim Merchant & Indian Idol finalists rock Pune!
It was fun galore at the Indian Idol concert held yesterday (11th July 2012) in Pune city. As the top nine contestants performed to an enthralled audience, judge Salim merchant brought on his charm too! The first to take on stage was 25 year old Kaushik Deshpande from Mumbai followed by the other eight contestants. 18 year old Poorvi Koutish was the last to perform and in her thunderous voice, sang the songs Aye Udi Udi Udi from the filmSaathiya and Dhunki from Mere Brother Ki Dulhan. But fans couldn't seem to get enough of Poorvi and kept screaming 'once more, once more' and Poorvi happily obliged. But the highlight of the evening was Devendra Pal Singh who sangGal Mitthi Mitthi Bol from the film Aisha. Naughty as he is, anchor Hussain Kuwajerwala didn't let the shy 17 year old from Ludhiana escape so easily. He called out to Devendra's female fans from the audience who surrounded him on stage and started dancing. One fan proudly proclaimed that Devendra made them all dance like crazy before another one added, "Tussi bade sweet ho, and tussi bade great ho!" A blushing Devendra then sang the popular Punjabi song Kangana as a way of obliging his female fans. Judge Salim Merchant was absolutely magical when he sang his famous song 'Shukran Allah' from Kurbaan. And as the night ended, as a special way of saying thank you to the Pune audience, all nine contestants along with Hussain took to stage and sang Ik Junoon fromZindagi Na Milegi Dobara. After this performance, it will be very difficult for judges to choose the winner for Indian Idol 6 because every contestant betters the other's performance.
