A single winner would've been unfair:  Himesh Reshammiya

The grand finale of Indian television's most viewed singing reality show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Lil Champs was recently held at Jaipur, where the battle between teams Bhukamps and Toofans ended with a tie. Anjali Gaikwad and Shreyan Bhattacharya won the show justifying the concept of the program -Bhukamp Vs Toofan.

The contestants of Zee TV's Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Lil Champs ruled over millions of hearts for 10 months with their beautiful voice and impeccable singing. This longest running season of Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Lil Champs was judged by the Neha Kakkar, Himesh Reshammiya and Himesh Reshammiya.

This has happened for the first time that a channel has announced two winners for a reality show. Talking with us exclusively Himesh Reshammiya, one of the judges mentioned, " See this time actually the whole format changed because Lil Champs got extended almost like 3 seasons, which went around a three month season for 10 months. So we had to re-audition to get these Toofans. There were so much more singers who came for the audition. There had to be two singers who had to win because it was very difficult as they all were so talented that all six should have been winners, if possible. Because every child has become a star and these two were so close in voting that they had to win. As we had re-auditioned so there were more contestants and when you have more contestants and one winner than it would have completely gone wrong as a format. So then the channel (Zee TV) took that call and we were OK with it."

After Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Lil Champs, Himesh Reshammiya will be seen as a mentor in And TV's reality show The Voice Kids season 2.

Sa Re Ga Ma Pa is truly an excellent platform for those who believe to live their dreams! After getting entertained by the singing talent of India, let's flaunt our feet on the floor now as Zee TV is back with its popular reality show Dance India Dance season 6.
