    Firstly, Congratulations to Sreeram.
    Second, there are many doubts regarding the arrangement of the Finale?
    Why wasn’t it arranged in an Open environment on a Big Stage? Indian Idol is surely popular enough to do so.
    Where are the celebrations after announcing the winner? There was hardly 5 minutes of program after Sreeram wwas announced the winner.
    Looks at the other 4 Indian Idol finale’s and see what was the atmosphere there.
    I smell some cost saving attitude here of Sony.
    Third, why wasn’t this conducted Live?
    Fourth, I will shortly file an RTI to know how the votes are counted.

    Tell me, how many male and female singers are there in the entertainment industry who are busy (and make money). At any point of time there will be hardly 2 or 3. I mean what happens to so many these finalists and winners and aspirants who ignore studies and take singing full time.

    I WANT SREERAM AS THE INDIAN IDOL 5 AND HE WOULD BE!!!!
    BEST OF LUCK SREERAM!!!!

  10. wayne says:

    No doubt that all the present three contestants are superb and hot rocks, in some way men contestants are being awarded by remarks that they will get the careers as playback singers soon i.e other way Judges actually supported them which is not fair but the lady contestant seem to be now much encourged …………………..so my vote goes to Bhoomi ………Bhoomi.

  11. prashanth says:

    yes I agree with the statement you made, need to vote talent . No more regional feelings, at least on 15th august be an INDIAN and think as INDIAN. My vote is for sreeram.

  12. jolly says:

    Sree ram will be the indian idol winner for year 2010. He is a great talented singer who has the capability of singing any style of songs. He has a great future in the days to come. Sree ram rocks when he gets to the stage. I am so proud that we have such talented people in India and because of Indian Idol show they have the oppotunity to come up.

  13. ashu says:

    Rock Rock ………………… Bhumi u r really Rock singer for ID-5.This is SUBIR DAS from Kolkata voted u 4 ur life.I Know u can creat a new field for urself.As BHUMI Measns “Land” from 70% of caltivator grew food crops and that’s the very needful for every person as from low level to high level person.So god must save u.Before going final in ID-5 You just recall 3 Times “Om Sai Namha”

  14. Banty Nigam says:

    This 57.5% votes for sreeram is just equal to 99.999% in comparision to rests. Sreeram, really DESERVES it. He definetly will be the “INDIA KI AWAJ” .I think Sriram is the best

  15. jyoti soie says:

    sir ram is a win indian idol 5 . I am pary to god your sucessful life of indian idol 5 . i wish he should be make a indian idol 5.

  16. R.PADMANABHAN IYER says:

    why are the judges so interested in Rakesh and even i dont think he deserved the bike yest!!! and Anu Malik uff…. i really really hope therz no favorism going on in the show like it looks already…

  17. murali says:

    Every Indian should feel proud by voting maximum votes to Mr. Sriram Mynampati as he deserves. A south Indian with his mother tongue being Telugu language singing in such a way that unless somebody says that he from south nobody believes. Not only hindi songs he is capable of singing in Tamil, Punjabi, Kannada and many other Indian languages. Such a talented person he is. Let us see him as INDIAN IDOL -5 WINNER. Mr. Sriram Vijayosthu.
    satamaanam bhavathi satayuh purushesytendriye ayushyavendriye prathithishtathi.
    We will see a as a Winner soon.

  18. tarak says:

    sreeram is the best singer in indian idol 5 he only take the title and back to andhrapradesh

  19. ashok says:

    Even I think a lot of acting is going on in the show, especially regarding Rakesh!! I hope there is nothing fishy and the derserving one wins! I think Sreeram should be the one and Bhoomi has started doing well recently tooo..

  20. susmitha says:

    Sreeram Chandra you are the Indian idol 5, I pray the god, there is no need of prayig, you did it already, definitely you are indian idol. keep it up and all the best

  21. sheela anand says:

    anil ,u r absolutely wrong ,coz rakesh maini looks to be like another debojeet,who cannot sing for nuts.More than singing, he is concentrating on buttering the judges, to get comments, better than sreeram.

  22. Surya says:

    Hi Sree Ram…

    Rock on….your voice is so sweet and the gajal song you sang during Sanjay Dutt episode is the best ….hats off to you …..

  23. gupta says:

    i think u dnt have any basic knowledge abt music…if u have it,u dnt say that Swaroop is a super star…see our sreeram,mst deservng guy 2 bcom indian idol

  24. henny says:

    We are (whole family) fans of you. With a little knowledge in classical music What I feel is your way of singing and presentation is totally different from others viz. Shivam, Bhoomi, Rakesh and Swaroop Khan. Being a Telugu speaking person you are really giving a very tough fight to your opponents. You have a very good knowledge and command on Sruthi and Laya over others comparitively. We try our level best to see and get maximum votes from our friends and relatives. Keep rocking………… Very very best of luck. C. M. RAO.

  25. rajesh says:

  35. stony says:

    Staying in Hyderabad, fortunately or unfortunately, I didn’t know the fact that he is already a playback singer until he said himself during the audition.
    So you can imagine the recognition he got here. That’s absolutely no justice for such a talent.

  36. mony says:

    I personally feel that naushad may have potential to be Indian Idol5 as he has inculcate
    singing since childhood.He belongs to a singers family & above all his attitude is positive & he is a level-headed guy among all.

  37. pranav says:

    now dis is called stupidity…..wy include religion in talent search? it seems u support only Pathans in cricket n Khans in movies but not the thing as a whole!!!!! So sad dat still such thoughts are buzzing in people’s mind…..I being 4m Hyderabad never recommend u to support Sree ram cuz hez 4m Hyd…..Be rational , listen wid purity in heart n not religion in mind….

  38. cudina says:

    hi every one want to say sreeram and TIA are the BEST among all i dont know about all the judges opionon regarding bhoomi who sirf pop song high pich mae gana janti hai were as us kae tho doggi bhi trained singers hai aaise hussian nae kha tho fir us ko tho bauth aacha gana chaiyae kutch kahta hai bhoomi un kae mitthi ki hai tho vote usi ko deagae fir tho purae maharashtra nae TIA ko hi vote deana chai yae par aai sa nahi ho raha hai why?

  39. erminco says:

    well i agree, but as Shashi is eliminated so it has been a shock for all of the Indian Idol lovers, so just pray that Shashi Suman makes a comeback as the judges hav a power of stopping an unpredictable elimination..
    wish Shashi a very Good Luck for his future.

  40. naitik says:

    At last..the nation has voted the right..in fact the other two were good too, but ultimately luck clicked for Sreeram…All the best…please use the prize money for some meaningful activities…a little also is fine…

  41. reshma says:

    why do these 3 judge format- Headed by anu malik who himself is a big copy cat calls himself a judge??
    and singers, music directors who are not busy or their market value is gone-they are judges???
    How can one idiott tell whether one has talent or not???
    Finding faults is always easy like me. But whether he is qualified enough to find faults with someone????
    Sony or star or Bar-Ban all these reality shows and teary shows and nautankki dramas. Show something on unemployment, poverty, poiltics and italiansonia.

  42. yarmy says:

    This shows are all crap. Deciding a winner based on SMS- well all u need to be a son of a mobile provider!!!!
    Bottomline:
    Ban all these so called idol shows and nautankiii dances,artificial teary soaps. Show something on poverty, illeteracy, unemployment, terrorism and stupid politics.

  43. adam says:

    All these reality shows are useless. Please tell me where are those first 4 idols these days. If you are really talented then you wont require reality show to be a known face. AB, SRK, Rajani all these stars are not come from reality shows. They come and sustain because they r the best.

  44. utaam says:

    Sreeram deserved to win. He was the best. I think it is the first time in a Reality Show that the best man won. Sreeram sings any song effortlessly and has immpecible pronounciation.

  45. sensu says:

    why some people talk of pride and south-north ego??
    Talent dont know north south.
    Who is AR Rehman?
    People shd come out of well and speak.
    BTW- This shows are all crap. Deciding a winner based on SMS- well all u need to be a son of a mobile provider!!!!
    Bottomline:
    Ban all these so called idol shows and nautankiii dances,artificial teary soaps. Show something on poverty, illeteracy, unemployment, terrorism and stupid politics.

  46. vishnu says:

    Tell me, how many male and female singers are there in the entertainment industry who are busy (and make money). At any point of time there will be hardly 2 or 3. I mean what happens to so many these finalists and winners and aspirants who ignore studies and take singing full time.

  47. Sandhya says:
