It started off as an idea to provide a platform for the pulsating musical talent of this country. With the right agent of change –Times Music - turned into India’s Biggest Pop Band Hunt.
Soon SUPASTARS was rolled out and a purely content focused Pop Band Hunt gripped the nation like no other TRP-hankering, bashful-judges sporting, Television Talent hunt had done before. Contestants knew this was only about the music and the melody, so they worked hard, real hard!
Entries started pouring in with astounding original numbers that blew our judges off their feet, even the covers were so smoothly performed that they almost matched the originals and many emotional stories of bands re-uniting; many of them practicing for hours on end to create the perfect demo were truly goose-bump inducing. The organizers are proud to say that simple and easy entry procedures were set up so Pop Bands could upload their Demos online or simply dial into the hotline specially created for them and perform!
The equally awesome response from every part of the country just goes to prove that every inch of India is pulsating with musical talent. We have got the talent to produce the next global pop band icon, all we need is to offer them a platform.
We are delighted to have been able to provide the right platform for these bands.
We auditioned over 800 pop bands & met over a 100 bands and shortlisted the final 4 for an audition in Mumbai. The shortlisted 4 Bands were from Delhi, Mumbai, Calcutta & Bangalore. They battled out for the “SUPASTARS” title in the grand finale which was hosted at the Hard Rock Café Mumbai. “The SQS Project” from west zone won & took home the “SUPASTARS” title
