Mika Singh Is Disappointed As Former Singing Reality Show Judges Speak Ill About The Show
Singer Mika Singh was in celebratory mode as his team, Punjab Lion won the reality show, Indian Pro Music League. As reported in ETimes, the singer was delighted to resume work and sing once again. He is overwhelmed as it got him to resume his practice session and also interact with the musicians. However, unlike the previous times, now the audience can’t watch them perform live, besides the unit members. Reality show makers shot the show without a live audience due to the social distancing norm introduced during the COVID-19 pandemic.

He said, “I was happy that we could resume work and sing again. Wapas kaam shuru hua, riyaaz karne aur musicians se interact karne ka mauka mila. While earlier the audience would watch us perform live, after we resumed the shoot, no one apart from the unit members could enter the set.” In his career span of 22 years, Mika stated to have performed over 25,000 shows. He shares he only has the urge to sing where he has an audience in front of him. Ultimately it has become a habit.

He added, “Main toh paida hi audience mein hua hoon. I have performed in over 25,000 shows in my career of 22 years. Jab audience saamne hoti hai mera toh ek mood banta hai gaana gaane ka. Toh aadat woh padi hui hai, aur mere gaane bhi phir saare naachnewale hain. However, given the restriction, I changed my strategy. I sang soft and melodious numbers. Our hard work bore fruit and we won on the show.”

After as he returned to the reality show platform after 5 years in the capacity of judges, he shares distancing himself from the reality shows to curtail the overexposure. Mika adds, “I returned to judge a reality show after five years. I don’t want to be seen on TV regularly. We earn a lot of money through reality shows, but I also feel that your focus tends to shift from your first love — music. I feel that the audience gets bored of you eventually. If they are listening to you sing on a reality show, why will they wait for your song to be released? So, it’s imperative to take a break.” ALSO READ: Dance Deewane 3: Pop Singer Daler Mehndi, Mika Singh, And B Praak To Light Up The Bachpan Special Episode

Talking about music reality shows, concentrating on contestants’ sob stories, it takes away the focus from their talent. He said, “Look, people connect with such stories because all of us come across them in real life. The tears and emotions are genuine.” ALSO READ: 

Also giving him opinion on former reality show judges speaking ill about the show, he says, “It’s disappointing to see people who once judged reality shows talk badly about them today. They have also witnessed it during their seasons. Pichhle bees saal se chalta aa raha hai yeh rona-dhona. It’s genuine and that’s why it is called reality. Problem ye hai ki jo log judge kar chuke hain aur dekha hai ye saara, aaj woh uske baare mein bol rahe hain. That’s wrong. Just because I am not approached to judge a reality show, I should not badmouth reality shows. Having said that, it’s the talent that takes you places.” 

Recently few singing reality show judges had opened up about how makers asked them to concentrate on praising the contestants.
