Indian Idol 12 grand premiere kicked off to a great start yesterday with the top 15 contestants giving their best performances in front of judges Neha Kakkar, Vishal Dadlani, and Himesh Reshammiya. Sireesha started the premiere performing on Lata Mangeshkar's Jiya Jale Jaan Jale from Dil Se.

She was followed by a few beautiful performances from Pawandeep Rajan and Sayli.

And then it was the turn of Sawai Bhatt, a puppeteer from Rajasthan who has won the hearts of the judges right from the moment he sang in the audition round.

Sawai Bhatt Win Hearts of Indian Idol 12 Judges and Pan India Audience With his Singing and Innocence

Sawai sang a beautiful song of Shankar Mahadevan and mesmerized the audience, the host Aditya Narayan as well as the judges.

Incidentally, all the while he was singing he had silent tears in his eyes. Aditya Narayan asked Sawai why he is crying after getting such good reviews from the judges. To this, the Indian Idol 12 contestant said that he wants to give the same pleasures that he is enjoying to his parents.

All the contestants are staying in a 5-star hotel which offers all the top-class amenities and facilities. For Sawai who has been sleeping on matt and wandering lane to lane to earn money, everything is so overwhelming. From putting the card to open the room door, eating with a knife and fork to using a jacuzzi, and sleeping on a soft bed, it was all so new and intriguing to Sawai.

And that is when he felt that his parents are unable to enjoy this with him. That made him tearful on the Indian Idol 12. The innocence, humbleness, and honesty of Sawai have further impressed the judges as well as the pan India viewers of the show.

Also, Yuvraj Medhe who works as a sweeper on the sets of Indian Idol will be included in the top contestant lists on popular demand.

According to the latest promo, the judges are ready to give him a chance in the grand premiere of Indian Idol 12 as there has been massive demand to make him a part of the top contestant list. Other contestants to watch out for today during the second installment of the grand premiere are Anjali Gaikwad and Shanmukha Priya.
