Hi!!
I am Harini and i really enjoy watching Airtel Super Singer. When the Junior Airtel Super Singer was announced I was really looking forward to audition but being born on the 6th October 1992, I was a few months older to participate. And now i am a few months younger to audition for Airtel Super Singer 2008. I am really interested in music and i really want to audition. HELP!!!

Hi im a bathroom singer ;-) n i didnt learn karnatic but have a better voice.Like to participate in contest.Should i need to know karnatic compulsorily?
Advice pls..

KarthikNagarajan.v said...

Will the audition take place the same way as they did last time? that is will there be direct open audition for all public like us in some centre or its purely for those who send CD's or who upload their song through web??? Direct audition will be preferable one and no cheating will occur. Pls do reply........

Hi Chinmayi,

When will the results of the online auditions be out? I am studying in Singapore and am on vacation in Chennai till July 2nd week or so. You probably do not have any confirmation from Vijay TV yet, but do you have an idea roughly regarding when the live auditions will be held?
You're help is greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot.

Best Wishes,
Kalpana

aarthi said...

Hi Chinmayee,

Bhavatharini Ram said...

Hi ka... :-)

vids said...

Hey Chinmayee ,
This is Vidhya here !!! A big Hiiii from me :) Well .. just a kutti help from you . I'v been wanting to participate in this Airtel Super Singer '08 . Missed out to send the audio clip online . And came to know there's a first round of zonal selection in Cbe [ ;) My hometown ] But again WORK's keeping me busy here in B'lore :(. Is there anyway u could tell me 'bout the second round of zonal selection .
This no: 044 28202652 given by Vijay TV is of no use .... They ain't helping . Hopingggg so much u could be of grt help :)......

Chinmayi said...

there is no second round in coimbatore... there was an option to upload music clips online, failing which you would have to come on a first come first served basis to the venue and sing. The next couple of weekends zonal auditions will be in trichy and chennai respectively

prashanth said...

aravind said...

Santosh hariharan said...

Hi Chinmayi didi,

I hav uploaded my song thru online 2 months b4,but no one from chennai has got any intimation :-(,do u hav any idea wen will b the auditions in chennai???

Monisha said...

Hi chinmayi.... its just amazing how down to earth you are.
hats off to u.
Am frm chennai and tryin for this competition. Pls tell me what this voice booth is all about? would judges be there? or just a video recording? what happened to the initial online auditions? is this voice booth a first come first served basis and we need to register like the early bird?
pardon me if i asked tooo many questions....but am just hugely confused:)
thankx a lot!

Chinmayi said...

Voice booths are set-ups in different areas which record your voice on video. You ll have to see Vijay TV to know where the voice booths in Chennai are. no judges there. they are reviewed later. Dont know about the initial tape/Cd auditions. As I said, I have no access to such information. Voice booth is walk -in-at-any-time I guess. I have never been to one. General auditions take place for anyone and everyone on pre-announced dates. Earlier you reach the venue, the better.

Santhosh: No idea at all.

Santosh hariharan said...

@Chinmayi:

Hi didi,

I got the letter yaar...And m gonna come on 27th for the audition... :-)

And all the best to all the participants....

ravi said...

Hi Chinmayi,
I am Ravi kumar from Singapore. First of all please accept my thanks for spending time to reply to so many questions and helping out people. I was actually searching for airtel super singer auditions in singapore and came across your blog. Seems like there is no singapore audition. I had uploaded my audio clip and I guess, since my address was Singapore, they did not contact me. I am coming to chennai on 16the July. I am thinking of going to Vijay tv office and meet some people. Do you think it is a good idea to go in person.

Regards,
Ravi

Hi Chinmayi

I am Lakshmi, I am a chennai based dairy science researcher.I have learnt carnatic music for the past 8 years and I am quite interested in participating in Airtel super singer. I had uploaded my audio clip online for audition ( Very soon after it was announced on Tv that we cd audition online). However, to my surprise , I did not receive any phone calls, mails or emails about my selection / rejection. I am quite disappointed about this. I completed my MS in Australia and returned to India with dreams of becoming this year's Super singer... If you do happen to read my comment , I request you to kindly advise me on my selection status :) thank you.

Lakshmi said...

Hi Chinmayi

Thanks for approving my comment. Looking forward to ur response.. :) I listened to ur latest song "I miss u da" uve done an awesome job .. i just love ur voice transitions :) between the husky and sweetish tones..keep up the great work! i believe u r one of those singers who can add the spark to a musician's composition :)

cheers!
lakshmi

Lakshmi said...

Hi Chinmayi

I just registered as a Blogger, wondering if it was a prerequisite to be able to hear back from you... still awaiting ur update with regard to the selection of my online audio clip :)

Cheers!

Balakrishnan said...

Hi Chinmayi,
I saw the Airtel Super Singer 2008 episode telecast on Monday the 12th Aug.There was one gentleman who failed because he could not pronounce tamil letter la and its counterpart LA correctly.The judges were right.
But the girl who sang next pronounced su(eg. as in sudum) as chu. Well she got the nod. It is ok to select her as her voice and rendition were gud,but the judges shud have told her to be wary of her pronounciation.
Hi,U better take care of ur voice. Sometimes,i feel that u are speaking long sentences in a very high pitch and i feel u may hurt ur voice in the process. We are waiting to hear more songs from u for many many more years. Gud Luck

Ganga said...

Hi Chinmayi,

I really wonder each time I see u anchoring Airtel Super Singer, why u are the anchor, because u have such good talent that u should be one of the judges there too (i am not trying to demean anchors or the judges). What i mean to say is, ur talent as a judge may be very much valuable. Or is it that u love to do anchoring? But u are doing a very good job as an anchor too and i would like to listen u singing at least one song per week. Can u pls do it for fans like us?

Guru said...

Suba said...

Hi chinmayee....
I'm hoping that you'll be reading this...I live canada and have become a great fan of this show. There is one person that has captured my attention completely and i don't what it is about him. Vijay narayan has an amazing but beyond that I think there is lots passion and love for music. It was very sad to seem go and I have no way of communicating with him and so I hope somehow by you reading this, it might reach him. He is destined to go places and I wish all the best. I hope to see do wonderful things.

Thanks
