There is simply not a number on how many people are waiting for the Mega singing talent show, the Indian Idol to start its 6 th season; Coz that’s a HUGE number. The 5 th season was completed on 15 August 2010 and for 2011, SET placed Indian Idol 6 aside and went with the ‘X Factor’. Come 2012, and the favourite singing reality show is back again.
And for the first time, SET is inviting people to give a web auditions apart from the normal registration processes through phone and SMS. One advantage of giving a web audition is that, it gives you an opportunity to present your singing talent to the world even before you make it to the show. Many people will watch and vote for your web audition and recommend you for a direct entry to the show.
If you are not that tech-savvy and cannot give a web audition, there are always the safe ways of registering through SMS and Call.
Auditions will be held in Kolkata (23 March), Delhi (30 March), Lucknow (5 April), Ahmedabad (9 April) and Mumbai (18 May). But before that, all participants should register themselves. The registration lines have been opened from 16 February and will be closed on 19 March for Kolkata audition, 26 March for Delhi, 1 April for Lucknow, 5 April for Ahmedabad and 14 May for Mumbai auditions.
Apart from these mega cities, mini-auditions will also be conducted at Amritsar (on 11 March), Jaipur (18 March), 15 April) and Aurangabad (22 April). Anyone who wants to attend these auditions can directly walk-in to the audition centres on the mentioned dates.
