Thanks to our beloved hostess Anushree, not one episode of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Lil Champs Season 16 has turned out to be boring. The last two weeks saw rigorous auditions where a large number of Puttanigalus performed their best to impress the judges in the blindfold round. Out of 100s of kids, 19 were selected.
The best news in this episode we got was the return of the veteran Vijay Prakash Sir!! With a melodious tune to mark his entry, VP sir also got a surprise for the special contestants, Parnika and Gnana.
The other judges; Arjun Janya, Rajesh Krishnan and the Mahaguru – Nadabramha Hamsalekha showed immense support to these tiny humans and showered them with lots of love. The Mahaguru even promised little Sangeetha a gift in the next episode. VP sir also took this opportunity and gave an important gift to Rubina Hussain, the contestant whose eyes are mesmerising.
While all children sang explicitly, a handful of the 19 got a golden buzzer from either Hamsalekha sir or the jury. For those of you who don’t know, the golden buzzer means full marks Aka 100/100. So which Puttanigalus impressed the judges and jury alike? Let’s see…
1. Gurukiran Hegde, who started the episode came out with full marks on his scoresheet.
2. Rubina Hussain, whose favourite subject is Kannada, sent the judges into a state of trance with her voice. Did we mention that she has the most adorable eyes?
3. The quirky Joshita impressed the Mahaguru by openly asking for the golden buzzer.
4. Special contestants Parnika and Gnana moved everyone’s heart just by being their adorable selves!! The comedy after their performance is not to be missed.
5. VP Sir himself said that Nayana Nagraj has a technically-sound voice. Even this is a massive compliment to this little lass.
6. Last but not least, Shreyas Kumar, who surprisingly got a 100/100 from the jury was ecstatic with his results.
After the performances were over, four performances were commended. The best performer went to Gurukiran, while Nayana was the dazzling performer. Shreyas bagged the coolest performer award for week 1 and the two little special contestants were given the sweetest performance of the first week.
Later, Vijay Prakash sir gave a sneak-peek into the coming week’s challenge, but we’ve already said a lot, so go and watch the episode to know about the challenge the kids will face in the week to come.
