This is not the first time fans have slammed Indian Idol 12 contestants for their performance in the show. Shanmukhapriya has been under the radar after the Kishore Kumar special when fans slammed her for ruining the golden retro songs and singing in the same pattern. The audience scrutiny has increased ever since Kishore Kumar’s son Amit Kumar claimed that he was asked to praise everyone even though he didn’t personally like their singing.
