Reader Rupal suggested recently that we try and figure out who's next to get the boot on SRGMP and Indian Idol. Before we get into that, a reminder that you can vote online for your favorites. You get one vote per email you make up. Hey, don't look at me like that - I always only vote once like I'm supposed to. Last week I voted for Aneek because the poor kid got pasted - rather undeservedly - by Ismail Darbar.
In any case, here is what is left on SRGMP.
I thought this situation through. There is no way I'm touching Raja, Poonam, Amanat and Aneek. Mauli is way too popular with the masses. Harpreet has been recently resurgent. Mussarat, if you forgive his indifferent singing last week, is pretty good. I'd be too scared to vote out Abhijit - that man looks like he could kill someone. Junaid rocks. Apurva is such a hard worker and solid singer. And Sumedha has already been declared the "Bhritni Spheyar of India" by Bappi.
This leaves Nirupama, Joy and Rimi. And its a tough call - but I agree with Rupal because Rimi's spunky but terribly shaky and breathless rendition of Reshammiya's "Yeh tera mera milna" stood out enough that it will result in her exit.
What do you folks think?
