Saregamapa Challenge 2009 written update – 10th Jan
Here is the written update for 10th January.. Sorry for being a little late.. Keep visiting melody junction forum for more discussion on music.. (http://melodyjunction.freeforums.org/)
The show begins with Yashita and Vaishali singing Mora lal dhupatta mal mal ka.. Soumen and Aditya joins them by singing Dhupatta tera nau rang da..
Aditya welcomes the audience and also the mentors.. Himesh says, the mentors will continue doing the Bethuki Shayri.. Aditya announces that today’s theme is – Old song and New Song.. One contestant will sing both old song and new song on a same subject..
Soumen is called on stage and asked to touch the SRGMP C2009 trophy so he could feel it.. He does so and then sings meri upar ke nau jawano.. MD – RD Burman.. Singer – Kishore Kumar.. And from the current era he sings Deewangi Deewangi from Om Shanti Om.. MD – Vishal-Shekhar. Singers – Sunidhi, Udit and Shreya Ghosal..
Pritam – Could have been better.. You are a very good singer and so will give you History..
Himesh – Good energy.. But due to performance, you went off sur… History
Vaishali is called on stage.. She is also asked to touch and feel the trophy.. She says, she would take it in her hand only in the finals.. Aadesh asks her why is she always surrounded by politicians for which she replies, she loves to get into politics.. Aadesh advices her not to get into politics and concentrate on singing.. Vaishali says her first love is music..
She sings honton mein aisi baat.. MD – SD Burman and Lata Mangeskar.. From the current era she sings, Hont rasile tere hont rasile..
Aadesh – It was beautiful.. You were perfect in Sur.. History.
Pritam – History for sure..
Himesh – Your winning is for sure.. After saying this he starts proving the point for hyping Vaishali.. He defends himself saying, It is important to let public know about the other qualities of a contestant.. Aadesh says, Her voice will speak.. There was no one to hype Himesh, the composer and he became popular because of his music.. In the same way, Vaishali will also become popular because of perfect sur.. Himesh says, being a mentor, he would do what he feels and doesn’t require any advice from anyone.. He also asks, Why do you think that public will listen to me?? Aadesh says, You have the freedom to do whatever you want, but I want that public decides the winner based on their performance.. Himesh ends up saying, I have the rights to promote and bring out the best qualities of my contestant..
Yashita is called on stage.. She sings Pyaar mein dil pe maar de goli.. MD – RD Burman. Singers – Asha and Kishore. From current era she sings pyaar ki yeh kahaani suno.. MD – Vishal Shekhar. Singers – Sunidhi and Gayathri Ganjawala..
Aadesh – The second song had great range, expression, attitude and the list goes on and on.. God Bless You.. History. Yashita says, she is not keeping very wel and so lost sur at many placesl.. Aadesh says it happens with everyone and that she was very good in the 2nd song..
Himesh – I never wanted you or Soumen to get eliminated.. Today I can proudly say that my decision was not wrong.. History
Pritam – You have again proved that you are a versatile singer.. Aadesh says, I was amazed at the 2nd performance of yours.. There are many who try to fake with their attitude but the attitude is in built in you..
Aditya asks who is the best among the three today.. Himesh asks Aadesh to announce the result.. Aadesh says, This is a sangam.. Each one has the best in them but but none of them were good today.. Pritam says, if you ask us, we would take the name of our own contestant or maybe the other gharana contestant.. So, we cannot decide.. Himesh again starts his argument.. He now starts pointing fingers at Pritam.. He says, if he had to take his own contestant name, then he would have never requested for both the contestant to be in the finals.. There is a heated argument after this and a voice over says, the shooting was stopped for 3 hours.. Then the show organizers discuss it and solve the issue to bring back the mentors on the show..
The three finalists are called on stage.. They sing a medley..
Piya Tu ab tu aaja.. MD – RD Burman. Singers – RD Burman and Kishore Kumar..
Bachna ae haseeno.. MD – Laxmikant-Pyaarelal. Singer – Kishore Kumar.

Aadesh is then asked by Aditya who would get the spice mobile today. Aadesh says, he would like to take the help of Pritam Puran today which says, all the 3 should get the mobile.. So, Aditya gifts the mobile to all the 3 finalists..
