Sonu Nigam shares the reason for not judging in the show Indian Idol

Sonu Nigam called out the makers for convincing judges to falsely praise all contestants even though they didn’t like their singing.

Indian singing reality show Indian Idol 12 has been a gossip topic since it went on air. The fans started by calling the show scripted, biased, trolled contestants, and even called out for its unnecessary emotional contestant’s backstory.

The prominent show recently became the talk of the town with various singers coming forward and confessing that the makers pay them to falsely praise every contestant irrespective of how they sing. Taking to that Bollywood singer and music director, Sonu Nigam called out the makers for convincing judges to falsely praise all contestants even though they didn’t like their singing. He too has been part of the judging panel for some seasons but the compulsion of makers to over-motivate the contestants made him stop being part of singing reality shows.

According to Sonu, a judge should guide the contestants on the correct path and give them their honest opinion rather than lying about it. A singer must be aware of his weak points and should improve those but if judges are forced to only praise them then how will they know what is wrong and if that is not pointed out he/she will always remain in darkness and consider themselves good all the time.

Veteran singer and actor Kishore Kumar’s son Amit Kumar revealed the truth about falsely praising the contestants even though they couldn’t do justice in giving a nice tribute to his late father. Winner of Indian Idol season 1 Abhijeet Sawant also bashed the show for using emotional appeal rather than focusing on the singer’s talent.

Similarly, TV host and actress Mini Mathur who hosted various seasons of Indian Idol too did not wish to continue because of its melodramatic content.
