maestro sandeep chowta to produce a single for one of the top 12 finalists ...

and this is NO April's Fool joke :)
Sandeep Chowta will be one of the judges at the KroaKing 3 Finale and will write and produce a song for one of top 12 finalists. (not necessarily the winner).
A song that Radio One will give a lot of airtime.
THIS IS ... KROAKING !!! (delivery style blatantly plagiarized from Ryan Seacrest)

from the chickie's (anoopa anand) pen
If confirmed cynics like me allowed déjà vu to get to them, I might have sighed last Wednesday.
It felt like a Kroaking competition from at least a year back. Shyju was singing Uriah Heep, Roopika was back in town, Arfaaz was wearing his heart on his knees and Saurabh Dubey was performing a very 80s public display of angst again. Damn. I should’ve sighed.
