Indian Idol has been one platform in the history of Indian TV reality show circuit which has given innumerable amount of talents to Indian music. The prestigious show has already completed a long journey of 11 long seasons and is currently all hunky-dory and gearing up for its 12th season.
However, season 12 has a twist in it. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, auditions involving the physical presence of the contestants is not possible to maintain the norms of social distancing. Due to this reason, the show has come up with a concept of ‘Digital Online Auditions’. So what exactly is the online audition for Indian Idol 12? When we asked Rohit more about it, he said and we quote,
“The concept of online auditions is very simple. Participants need to just simply record videos of them singing and send it to the designated recipient and the judges will then judge the contestants from their home. I only see this as a positive thing and I think online audition for Indian Idol is a great idea in the future as well. Several contestants who are often very talented fail to make it to the auditions due to logistical issues. Now with digital auditions coming in, there is no scope for anything like that. Also, what needs to be noted is earlier, we had this system of contestants from Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, etc. But now with online auditions, there’s nothing like that. It’s all about being ‘Indian’ now. So it’s fantastic and I wish everyone all the best going forward for season 12.”
