Indian idol season 6 will start this year. According to the three judges Salim Merchant, Anu Malik and Sunidhi Chauhan, they are looking for the best singing talent and looks does not matter. Over 1.5 lakhs contestants have registered themselves through out the country since the registration process started this month.
Music director and Judge Salim Merchant said that Indian Idol 6 is looking for beautiful voice, and not for good looks. According to Salim Merchant, it is a misconception that they are looking for a good singer who also looks good.
Anu Malik, who has been a judge from the starting of Indian Idol, is of opinion that if the person looks good it is an added advantage. He is not looking for a girl who is beautiful but if it is accompanied by good voice then it will be a bonus. He is just looking for good voice, said Anu Malik.
According to singer Sunidhi Chauhan, singing good is very important. The contestant should sing from the core of his heart and all other talents can be considered secondary.
