Before giving the update, let me write down the format of the show for you all. As usual auditions were held in various places of the country and it was judged by Alka Yagnik and Abhijeet. While Alka took care of the girls group, Abhijeet took charge of picking the best singers possible among boys. 55 contestants from all over the kids were given ticket to Mumbai along with a bronze medal.
Now these 55 contestants will perform in front of judge’s panel consisting of Suresh Wadkar, Usha Utup, Jatin Pandit and Alka/Abhijeet. Six girls and six boys will make it to top 12 and then the tough competition begins. Rest we will get to know, as and when the show proceeds. There is no host as of now and two cartoon characters are enacting the role of a host.
Yesterday, they showed the auditions in Indore and Kolkatta. Surit from Kolkatta bagged the silver medal among boys and reached top 6. Debolina halger and Shalini from Kolkatta received silver medal among girls and got through this round.

In audition round Shyamanta Das sings jaane kya chahe mann. He gets the bronze medal and ticket to Mumbai.
Abhigyan Das sings laga chunri mein daag kaise in audition round. In Mumbai stage, Abhijeet says that he was also the winner of saregamapa little champs Bengali.
When asked their parents, both of them wanted Abhigyan, the eldest among the two to be through to next round. But Abhijeet gave bronze medal to both the brothers.
Abhigyan is called on stage during the second round in Mumbai. He sings Albeli Nar preetam Dwar Khadi.
Jatin – You deserved to be champ in Saregamapa Bengali and now you are through top 6.
So, Abhigyan gets silver medal.

Now, its turn for girls…

Antara is shown playing with Ananya of Mumbai who has skin problems. Ananya says, she has very few friends with Antara being her friend.
Antara says, “Ananya is my lucky charm and would want her to be there in every performance of hers”. Antara sings, Aap ki nazron ne samjha..
She is through to next round. She is given silver medal and is now in top 6.
Next to perform is Sreeja Chakraborty from Assam. She sings Pari hoon main.
Suresh ji – You sang well but it was not impressive and you were unable to hold a grip to the song.
Shreyasi Bhattacharya from kolkatta sings Kahe ched ched mohi. Alka says, she had given audition for little champs before two years but was not selected.
Jatin says, you have to give positive reaction to whatever I say and Shreyasi comes out with a silver medal. Jatin was tooo impressed by her that he gives her silver medal himself.
After Kolkatta, it’s Mumbai’s turn to prove their talent.
The first contestant among boys is, Sailaab. He comes in Gajini style and entertains Abhijeet. But he is not selected.
Next one is – Sayantan Paul who sings Bheegi Bheegi si hain raatein. He is selected for the next round and Abhijeet says, though you are the youngest champ, I want you to give tough fight for others.
In the second round too he sings, Bheegi Bheegi si hain raatein.
Abhijeet – He knows just one song and that is this song from Gangster. Usha Utup asks him to sing two lines in Bengali and he sings the same song in Bengali

Another contestant from Mumbai is – Raza Khan. He is the son of an auto driver and a small AV on his lifestyle is shown. But he is not selected in audition round.
Next to perform in second round is Ananya. She says, she has some skin problem and so has very few friends with her. Her mother adds, she takes part in all competitions and gets first or second prize. A doctor certifies that, this disease is not contagious and is more genetic. Her mother requests people not to show any sympathy and select her fair and square. She sings Tu mungda.
Suresh Wadkar – Today you cannot be selected because you are not well prepared for the contest.
