Here in US, we don't have Sony channel, may be there is but the region where i am, we don't have. Whatever ... am glad to hear that PRASHANT became an INDIAN IDOL.
Update(Sept,12 2007): Prashant Tamang in BoudhaPrashant Tamang is becoming sensation day by day as the final decisive day is approaching nearer and nearer. For his support, lots of people are convincing people to vote for him. People are relating his victory with nation's pride which i don't like. Besides, the communal attachment for him is growing day by day.
Update (Sept 8, 2007): PRASHANT TAMANG has reached top two position in Indian Idol and it's the ultimate waiting for fans all over the world to see the result. Who would win?? will it be PRASHANT TAMANG or amit? Today, amit got maximum votes whereas PRASHANT TAMANG got more than 50 lakhs SMS votes. Now, nobody can predict who would win because, they both are excellent competitors to each other. After seeing such a huge fan following for both of these titans, it's hard to predict who would win. But still my vote will go for Prashant for he is competing with a trained contender whereas he is untrained. Prashant sang 'Bhigey hoth tere" spontaneously last time. But those judges(Adnan and Javed) didn't step back to fire their harsh comments on him. They've no right to comment him that way at this very stage. May be their intentions is to divert public's vote to Amit and that happened strangely.
COMING 23rd September's night would be massive live telecast of 2 hours in the evening. That would be the end of this years Indian Idol. Sony will market new voice, Sony will market their brand as like it's doing with Abhijeet Sawaant. I doubt if it would be Prashant because, even if Prashant would become No 1 with public's vote, i feel somewhere, that those SonyTV won't let that happen. And, at the same time, i feel, this is the same SonyTV who let bad singer like Kazi Toqir win in Fame Gurukul. Kazi was over-confident stupid chap with bad voice. Prashant is far more better than him. Lets wish GOOD LUCK for him.
PRASHANT TAMANG has reached TOP 3 and Today, Ankita would be out according to someone who has been taking part in Indian Idol shooting since few weeks. According to him, Indian Idol Gala for next week is being shot now, today Saturday,Sept 1st.
Prashant Tamang ,24, whose family background relates to Nepal and hails from Darjeeling is one of a proud singer to represent all Nepalese in one of India's Most popular musical TV Show 'Indian Idol'. Currently, he works for Calcutta police where once his father served. After the death of his father in an accident, he got recruited in his place and is serving well in Calcutta police orchestra too.
NOTE: I've made this Post Sticky considering it's relevancy these days. There is PRASHANT TAMANG fever growing day by day. Let's involve in it. PRASHANT TAMANG be the next Indian Idol. Best of luck!!!

Indian Idol is the ditto copy program of American Idol. All the contestants are musical colossals and are well-versed in their singing talent. There are three judges for this 'Indian Idol 3', Javed Akhtar, Alisha Chinoi and Udit Narayan whose judging eyes can't escape even the minor faults of the singers. Some times they dig more of it. This time i'm watching this show because i came to know that One Nepalese is struggling for his ground on this foreign land who is none other than Prashant Tamang.
Javed Akhtar: i personally never liked this old man, husband of sabna aajmi(indian actress) and whose son looks even older than him but ever since, he started to talk for Prashant Tamang, i started to like this old man's comment. This old man is awarded with the India's most reputed award. He is writer,critics and so. But i don't know why this old man is judging indian's singing talents who has nothing to take and give with singing. His 'Dekhiye.. ' is very irritating.
Alisha Chinoy: If i'm not wrong than this woman is not married yet and who thinks herself as a teenage girl. But truly, her voice is amazing and her songs are very beautiful. No matter if a good looking guy has made a minor issues or not, she just ignores them and finds issues on girls singing. Personally, i hate this woman too but i like her songs.
Udit Narayan: This man is chameleon type. He boldly claims he is Nepalese when he is in Nepal and again boldly claims he is Indian when he is in India. May be because of this his dual character, he got two wives. He really got ripped last time because of this polygamy thing. But now, that's settled and he's one of the judge. No matter what, we know he is Nepalese and i'm in favour of him too. He's the man with the golden voice. In indian idol 3, i'm getting irritated with his ' lekin, parantu, blah blah '
Now, if i could, i would have voted for Prashant Tamang too. He is one hellava singer. He is now in Top 6 till yesterday(friday). But i know who is the next Indian Idol this time i.e
