Zee Kannada’s Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs 16 Recap: The ‘Family Round’ Was Pure Joy!

Last week on SRGMP Li'l Champs 16, the Sambhandagala Sangeetha was a hit. Family members sang alongside the puttanigalus giving us many 'awww' moments

A Pretty Still Of Anushre

One of the best rounds on the 16th season of Sa Re Ga Ma Li’l Champs was the Sambandhagala Sangeetha round aka the family round. And I have a great reason to say so. You see unlike all the other rounds be it the Getup round, the Celebration round or even the ‘All-Time Heroes’ round, the Family round had a member from the contestant’s family singing alongside them. We all know that when loved ones are standing beside you doing something that you love, the task becomes more fun and you gain more confidence. Similarly, last week too, the puttanigalus had great fun singing alongside their family members and entertaining the audience and judges alike.

Hostess Anushree welcomed the judges in her own unique way and also told us the real names of Rajesh Krishnan Sir and Nadabramha Hamsalekha Sir. Following this, she then invited all the family-participants on the show and introduced them to the audience. So without further ado let’s check out some performances and the scorecard for the others shall we?
