Prashant Tamang is the winner.
It’s spread everywhere that he is the winner. I also feel that he might be the winner as it is the trend of Indian Idol that, better singers always lose. (Remember, last year, Sandeep Acharya?).
So, in short, Amit is the better singer so he did not win. Currently the show is going on, the results are expected within half an hour. BUT the news is confirmed by Times of India
Prashant Tamang, a constable in the West Bengal Police, was on Sunday crowned Indian Idol after vanquishing his rival Amit Paul in a grand finale of the over-two month long talent hunt.
Tamang, 24, who hails from Darjeeling, has undergone a journey from being a member in the police band in Kolkata to becoming the heart throb of millions of TV viewers all over the country.
As Bollywood actor John Abraham announced Tamang the winner, the constable thanked his mother in a voice choked with emotion.
“I thank my mother, public and Bengal police for granting me the permission for participating in the show,” he said.
So in short, few more good singers wasted, and few more crores earned by channel and mobile companies.
