Week 3 :I see dead people. Walking around like regular people. And they all sound like Jim Morrison.

I’m really tired of gushing every week. See, in real life, I’m not so nice. Ask anyone. But this competition is bringing out a really irksome pleasant mushy side of me. I don’t even know myself anymore. But I sure as hell know a lot of people with a lot of talent.

The past couple of weeks have seen a very remarkable Jim Morrison revival and I can’t ignore it anymore
the 3 that made it through
1. sharon chang 2. alexis d'souza 3. aditya menon 4. nevil de nazareth 5. mark rego 6. roohshad 7. shilpa 8. meghana 9. arti desikan
