Dear All,

Airtel Super Singer is now over and Nikhil Mathews was crowned the winner ! Before I start this post, I would like to congratulate Nikhil on this fabulous achievement. Nikhil is a fantastic musician, a fabulous vocalist and above all an extremely good human being. Here is wishing him a lot of success and luck for his singing career.

It was one hell of a good experience participating in Airtel Super Singer competition on vijay TV. It was some great exposure, a wonderful opportunity to meet the stalwarts of tamil music industry and also the company of a lot of phenomenally talented musicians. I never thought I would even reach up to the semifinals of this contest, when I decided to back out of the show at Top 15 stage. There are a lot of people I MUST thank for whatever little I could do to reach till the top 5 in this competition. There are innumerable people who supported me through their votes, emails and sms's, so many of them who sincerely backed me with their encouragement and prayers, I cant thank enough for all that they have done for me.

Among those many people, the following people I feel deserve a special word of thanks (whatever spoken about them, I know is not enough compared to the support they extended to me all throughout the show!)

Smt Anuradha Sriram:
For giving me a second chance to come in as a wild card entry to this competition. Without that, I couldnt have sung in the semifinals.( I happened to read this article about me getting a 'backdoor' (bah!) entry to this competiton and also me throwing an ugly surprice by winning the semis. All I can say is that perceptions vary and it was the judge, who is a renowned name in tamil music industry who gave me a come back chance and I cant quite think how it can be called a backdoor entry for christ sake! Again, I NEVER got rejected in this competition until the finals, I voluntarily backed out of the contest due to professional reasons. As to me throwing ugly surprice by winning, - some one's loss is some one else's success. Thats all i can say. I do feel i deserved to win the wildcard semi's, also I strongly believe Nikhil deserved the finals title.)

Ram, Lauren & Flex Team management @ Adobe
My managers Ram & Lauren lent me their whole hearted support for my participation in Airtel Super Singer. They were kind enough to grant me leave for the shooting and they even went ahead and campaigned votes for me! Thanks Ram & Lauren! Couldnt have gone this far without your support and help!

What can I possibly say? I am seriously out of words for explaining the encouragement and support swamy has given me through this competition. Despite his hectic schedule at work and other family commitments, Swamy worked day and night to get votes for me after the wild card semi finals. He probably spent more sleepless nights than I did till the semi results were announced. Swamy, You are just amazing, and you are such a wonderful friend. I consider meeting you one of the most significant event in my musical journey. Thanks for everything.

I have never met poornima in person! for that matter, we havent even spoken! But the amount of effort that she put in to get me votes ater the wild card semi's is spectacular. Thanks a lot poornima. I am humbled by the amount of dedication that you put in to help me achieve my dreams! YOU ROCK!

Shyam, GNR, Vicky, Subra, Pmac,Paddu, Harikiran
Guys, I just cant write formal words of thanks for you folks! You guys are my biggest driving force, my biggest motivation and the very reason which keeps the musician in me alive. I failed to live up to your expectations in the finals, but your support has been the inevitable forward thrust for me in this contest.

She stayed with me through the thick and thin as she always have, helped me get over the unhappiness that I went through when I had to back out of the show, She stood by me when I dropped out and re-entered the show. She instigated the confidence back in me that I can prove myself to be good in this competition. Love you da!

My Onsite campaign manager! This guy worked harder than his 4 years of engineering studies to campaign votes for me. His unmatchable people skills was one of the most important things that helped me win the wild card semi's and get a berth in the finals. Prashanth, you cracked it brother! Thanks for everything! Not to forget the innumerable bike pickup and drops that he gave me in chennai!

Smt Padmasani
Smt Padmasani pointed out the mistakes in my rendition and voice at a very early stage of the competition. With her thorough expertise in voice training and music, she gave me some valuable tips and advices to improve my singing. I do not know how much of those tips I could imbibe into my singing, but I feel it was extremely magnanimous on her side for giving those timely guidance. Thanks a lot, madam!

Whole of Praveen's family!
I never felt I was away from home everty time i went to chennai for the shooting! Thanks a ton to praveen's family for making me at home and considering me like one of their family member throughout the time that i was in chennai. Thank you mama, mami, padma aunty, uncle,aishu, prashanth, malli, patti!

Finally, Amma, Appa & my family
Thank you amma, appa, manni, thatha, ammamma, gopu mama & mami! You are wonderful! You rock my world! Thanks a ton amma and appa for coming to cheer me for the results function. Every time you come to watch me I feel like a complete winner irrespective of the result of the competition.

Jo & Narayanan Sir
They are arguably two of the most popular audio / music bloggers in the blogsphere. They were kind enough to put up posts on their blogs supporting me. Thanks Jo and Narayanan sir, Please accept my heartfelt gratitude. Your blog posts played a very important role in getting me more votes after the wildcard semi's.

There are so many more people whom I dont even know who supported me throughout this competition, my heartfelt gratitude is due to each and every one of them!

Thanks one & all

I watched you the last few weeks with my family and recorded the programs as well.

I melted literally speaking for your 'Ennavale' and 'Uyire'. I am sure, Mr. Unni and gang will agree as well as the people who watched you perform.

Like Ms. Anuradha Sriram said, your rendernig of 'Uyire' was soulful. In the middle of the song they showed her closing her eyes and listening to your song. Not sure why Srinivas felt that it sounded a Happy song.

All of us at home and our relatives agreed about one point. "Unakkenna mele ninraai" was probably a wrong choice ( like Ms. A.Sriram said too).

Reason - That song has a lot of sadness to it..and you started with cheering the croud. Anyways, its are part of the game and hindsight is 20/20


I strongly feel that you'll be able walk into the Film industry thanks to your performance. I'm sure several MD's would have already noticed you.

MHO - Your music background, your voice, your determination etc. will play a solid role in any song given to you.

Please don't think this is all pep talk. Winning or losing is something else...proving a point is something else.

To comeback, to stay up there with the rest is a great achievement and remember you did it thanks to all your strong points. ie. Your Music Talent.


All the people you've mentioned here are greats in their own ways....I feel honored that I could do something from my end.!

I wish you well Harish. I look forward to seeing your name in some Film soon. My best wishes and prayers for that to happen.

Thank you for mentioning my name eventhough what I did was something that anyone who listened to your voice would do. :-) I am sure many of the biggies in the industry would have already noticed your voice and would definitely have something to offer you. [Or has something come up already? :-) ] I am waiting for that announcement!

Hi Harish

Though I was in US and couldn't watch the Super Singer, I get regular updates from my family back in India.

All of us agreed that you have great voice and great personality.

Good Luck for your future and CONGRATULATIONS once again.
