The final contestants for this round, which has already been filmed, were Gagan, Keertana, Aditi, Siddarth and Vishwanath. The energy and zeal with which the finalists performed swept the audience off their feet.
The Li’l Champs auditions had earlier been held in six centres across Karnataka: Gulbarga, Hubli, Mysore, Mangalore, Davangere and Bangalore. More than 2000 children had participated in the autidions; of them, 54 had been selected. The top 17 contestants participated in the televised rounds which were filmed in Zee Kannada’s studios in Bangalore.
“Sa Re Ga Ma Pa is one of our most popular shows, and this is the ninth season. The show aims to encourage talented children without putting them under stress or causing any pain. Even the eliminated participants had smiles on their faces. The participants sang several evergreen songs. The Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Grand Finale has showcased the children’s innocence, their mischief, their competitive spirit and the bonhomie between the participants,” said Dr. M Gautham Machaiah, Executive Vice President, Zee.
Watch the two-part Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Grand Finale this weekend – on Friday, 9th November at 7 pm, and Saturday, 10th November at 7 pm.
