Durga delivers another stunner

When I was thinking what Durga, my No.1 female contestant at the Idea Star Singer 2007 contest is going to do to outsmart the competition, lo she comes back with a great performance in her cool, confident and inimitable style. No one was prepared for her performance today for which she had only a day of practice. Durga sang the immensely popular K B Sundarambaal's "Pazhamneeappa" from the Tamil movie "Thiruvilayaadal" giving viewers and the judges goose bumps throughout her perfromance.

What took everyone by surprise was her near perfect Tamil pronounciation. It is impossible to believe she picked it up when she was studying the song just yesterday. Durga can only manage a little Tamil. A stunning performance that fetched a deserving 85 points out of 100. My guess is that she will be through to the semi finals of the contest. I pray for her.

Meanwhile Avial's ballads "Njaan Aaara" and "Ettam Paatu" that I have been listening to the last few nights keeps me company as I work through the night.....

Durga - the extra talented girl.
No comparisons. She is the best.
Better than any contestants in both ISS/SSG/Gandhrava sangeetham.

Durga, you deserves the title.
