A source close to Shekhar confirmed the news and said, “Shekhar was always the first choice of the channel and were very keen on having him on board. But before the channel could approach him for the second instalment of the show, he had already accepted the offer from Star Plus for the singing reality show called Dil Hai Hindustani. This left the channel with no option than to scout for options.”

Thus, the channel had to work with Benny Dayal who was available immediately thus they got him on board. Apart from Benny, the panel of judges include Neeti Mohan, Shaan, Salim Merchant. Neeti was seen in The Voice India Kids with Shaan. The Chand Sifarish singer was also seen in the first instalment of the singing reality show with Mika Singh, Sunidhi Chauhan and singer-composer Himesh Reshammiya.
