Indian Idol season 12 has been a really successful season even amidst the Pandemic. Amit Kumar was the guest on the episode which was aired this weekend. The episode was dedicated as a tribute episode to the late Singer/Actor Kishore Kumar. Judges of the show, Neha Kakkar and Himesh Reshammiya also performed along with the participants.

When the episode was aired on Sony TV, the Internet was filled with memes and trolls. Netizens bashed Judges for ‘Ruining’ the songs by Kishore Kumar and many of the Kishore Kumar fans were angry and showed outrage. Few of the tweets primarily criticising Neha Kakkar were observed. One of the Twitter users said, “Neha Kakkar do whatever you want to do with your songs please don’t even think to spoil Kishore Kumar Sir’s songs”.

While few other trolls and outrage tweets say, “#IndianIdol2021 #indianidol #SonyLIV please spare Kishore Kumar’s songs.. this is the worst singing I’ve ever witnessed of Kishore’s songs.. all my favourite songs are screwed by @iAmNehaKakkar @The_AnuMalik and all participants”.

Many of the other tweets also trolled participants of the show, many of them said that the quality has degraded with respect to singing, pulling stunts for TRP and publicity has let the show down. One of the tweets was, “Watching #indianidol dedicated to 1 of the all-time greats #kishorekumar every time you hear the best of singers sing his songs you once again realise the greatness of the legend. Nobody after him has been blessed with the quality of his voice and singing prowess like him!”
