After a musical battle of 13 weeks, the popular singing reality show ‘The Voice India’ had its Grand Finale on Sunday 30th August. A star studded evening, team Shaan’s finalist Pawandeep Rajan was awarded the winning title and became the first winner of ‘The Voice India’.
Team Sunidhi came fourth with her finalist Rishabh Chaturvedi, while team Mika came third with his finalist (and the only girl left in the competition) Parampara Thakur. The competition then became between team HR’s (multi talented Himesh Reshammiya) contestant Deepesh Rahi and team Shaan’s Pawandeep. Team HR came second in this musical battle of the voices!
Pawandeep had been performing consistently well throughout the show and as well as singing, he also displayed his musical skills of being able to play the tabla and performing with an electric drums kit for the very first time on the grand finale night itself!
According to Times of India, in a recent statement Pawandeep said “The show is a huge platform and I feel overjoyed with this win. I feel extremely humbled with all the love and appreciation received from the audience across the country. I would first and foremost like to thank coach Shaan who thought I was good enough to make the cut and mentored me wholeheartedly. The show brought together the best talent and quite honestly with this kind of platform, I am sure everyone has gone back only as a winner.”
Coach Shaan also expressed his happiness for Pawandeep and said “Pawandeep has grown exponentially through the show right from the ‘Blind Auditions’ to the ‘Battle’, ‘The Live’ round and made it to the top four in the finale. It was our job to pick the best and mentor them only for the audience to pick their favorite voice. I am proud of Pawandeep for winning this title and I wish him all the very best for a melodious future.”
Pawandeep has won a cheque for 50 lakhs rupees and a recording deal with Universal Music. Special guest singers Neeti Mohan, Ash King, Akriti Kakkar, Kanika Kapoor and Siddarth Mahadevan graced the grand finale along with comedian Kapil Sharma.
