last wednesday we experienced a really bad case of PreMonsoonSyndrome ... the sky leaked and made everything eeky and yucky and squishy ....
but the 3 that made it through, would have made it on the best of nights anyways. we are now almost at the end of our search .. just one more wednesday to go and then we are into the final stages ...
i am not going to prolong the competition any further.. i have-to-have-to-have-to finish it by the 7th june for the following 2 reasons.. one being the rain .. but most importantly the greatest show on earth kicks off (got the hint??) on the 9th .. and the projector is gonna be fully occupied by the beautiful game at opus for the next month.
24th May - semifinal A
31st May - semifinal B
7th June - FINALS
on each of the semifinal nights 12 people will sing for 6 places in the final.
we are trying to have our CD out by the finals as well so betn the 24th may and 4th june all recordings will also be complete with Sharmon Ibrahim.
the finals will be of 12 contestants who will compete for
1st place: a Crimson (powered by RCI) 7 day holiday for 2 in Goa
2nd place: a home theatre system from Rontek
the final draw will be up after tomorrow's last qualifier.
for the semifinals, only songs that have never been sung before by that particular contestant at opus (let me be the judge of that) will be entertained.
send me a mail or msg with 3 songs in order of preference and i will see that i organise the tracks for you (if u have ur own tracks thats also fine by me)
the semi finals will be judged by you as well as the judges. entry coupons for the semis will also double up as voting cards .. for you to have your say as to who were your 3 favorites of the night. the top 6 on both the nights will be announced on the blog and at the following sundays KroaKnight.
vivek madan has an interesting take on "what is a singer" ... http://kroaknights.blogspot.com/
pls send him some comments as he likes to feel wanted.
also post who u think is gonna win on the opus blog .... we'll do a voters choice thingee as well ..
