There’s nothing we love more than youngsters with tons of talent, and judging by the contestants in this competition, there’s no shortage of talented Tamilians! Last week, Vijay TV aired the grand finale of Airtel Super Singer Junior 3, a singing competition for children aged between 6 and 14 years.
It was a grand event, attended by many esteemed musicians from both the Carnatic and film industries. Below is a tribute to music directors that was performed on the night. The singers covered all the greats, including KV Mahadevan, MS Viswanathan, Ilaiyaraja, and of course, AR Rahman.
Internationally-renowned music director AR Rahman announced the winner towards the end of the jam-packed musical evening. The winner was wild-card entry Aajeedh Khalique from Trichy, Tamil Nadu, whose energetic and charismatic performances astounded both the judges, and audiences across the globe time and time again. Watch one of Aajeedh’s stand-out performances below – his rendition of "Aaromale" from the film "Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya".
Aajeedh performed at the Vijay Music Awards earlier this week, and we’re sure this is just the first of many performances he’ll be doing! There’s no doubt that he, and the rest of the contestants in Super Singer Junior 3, have a bright future ahead of them!
