Ooh…La…La…La… – Quaterfinals
Posted by Sankar on August 7, 2007
The first (real) episode of ooh…la…la…la was screened on Sun TV this Sunday. As I mentioned earlier, there are 18 bands in the quaterfinals and it is going to be three bands per quaterfinal and one of the bands will move on to the semis.
Each quaterfinal consists of two rounds.
- One round where they have to compose their own song, write the lyrics and perform it.
- In the second round, the bands have to re-mix an existing song and perform it.
The performance of the teams was just awesome. Ok. This is coming from an average person who knows just to enjoy the music and doesn’t know the nuances of it. But really, the music was really enjoyable and the bands had done a nice job of composing the music especially for the first round. Even the singers were quite versatile and performed really well.
But I really wish that the teams were given some more time to show case their talent. Roughly 25 mins to judge 3 teams in 2 rounds is really too short. I wish they have 1 hr episodes and give atleast 3-4 rounds per team in each quaterfinal. Just two songs is really too little. And I am sure that with all these big names involved, there won’t be an issue with getting sponsers. Even the viewers won’t mind 1 hr show, especially when it is just music. But that is just me 🙂
