Paanchvi Pass tonight :)

from the chickie's (anoopa anand) pen
I’ve been sitting in front of this computer for an hour and a half. I have nothing. Let me assure you. If I didn’t absolutely have to write, this week’s post would have been a visual interpretation of a stunned silence.
And please don’t assume that the dumbstruck disposition is a positive reaction to last week. Not by a long shot.
Last week was the penultimate qualifying week at KroaKing Season 3, and also the penultimate week for me in Bangalore. (Pen. Ultimate. Smirk.) I have another week to go with this blog before I head off to a clement, balmy, pleasant Secunderabad. And I’m hoping and praying that I’ll have a lot more to say next week..
go here for complete story

The past couple of weeks have seen a very some remarakable performances. the ones who have gotten in are
1. sharon chang 2. alexis d'souza 3. aditya menon 4. neville de nazareth 5. mark rego 6. roohshad 7. arti desikan 8. venkat subramanyam 9. anaitha nair 10. mark rahmi 11. ravi bhat 12. sendhil kumar 13. anuj gurwara 14. roopikamuthanna 15. saurabh 16. swetha 17. aishwarya 18. suraj venkatichalam 19. neha mukund

your last chance to get a slot for the semifinals. 2 of the ones that have been picked, have their priorities firmly in place and are out of the country to do their summer internship. so this week we have a bumper crop. 5 places to be filled.
we'll have a semifinal to pick 12 .. and then a finale (block your dates for the 17th of may) at an auditorium wherein one would be crowned Opus KroaKING...

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)

and catch our kroaking jingle and all the on air hype, the crazy chamrajpet charles and rajni saar on Radio One (94.3 FM) .
3 wild card singers get to make it directly into the semifinal. (tune to anjaan's show every night). BSNL users can dial 1255594, and other landline and mobile service users can dial 505101094

Hey it is a very nice article . . . btw they also have an
official website www.paanchvipass.com and they have also created a Facebook application for the same http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=18614975589. I have used the application and played the PaanchviPass game. And it was fun!!!. For once, it felt nice to be ranked as "Chauthi Paas" rather than "IQ = 77": )
