The competition started  with Auditions in all major cities of Australia including Melbourne , Perth , Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney in which more than 300 contestants participated.   For the second round 55 contestants were selected from all the cities  and then there was online voting.  Based on voting 34 contestants were selected and they all then performed  in the Grand Finale which was held on June 14, 2015 at Bahai Centre , Silver water, Sydney.”

“The panel of the judges included Sumati, Saleem Zamaan, Varun Tiwari, Esha Sanyal , Jagpreet Grover, Neena Sinha, Sheila Nair and Philip.

So, the completion was very fair and result was announced on the basis of the  points given by the judges,” Anuj added.

“ In the past as well, Hindi Gaurav has organized many  such events   to promote Indian art and culture. In 2011 and 2012, Hindi Gaurav also organized the Indian –Australian Idol , a show  very similar  to this one,” Anuj added.

“I am thankful to all the  sponsors , media partners,  participants , MC’s and all others who were involved in  organizing the events,” Anuj said.
