    congrats SREENATH……..GOD BLESS IF YOU DON’T MIND PLZ GIVE UR NUMBER TO SAY CONGRATS

  2. Nathan says:

    The selection of the best among the remaining 5 contestants has become based on SMS changed the expansion of SMS into Sympathy Mail Service
    Though Bobby John is undoubtedly is a talented singer and deserves to be appreciated the way he has come up from a poor background, yet Sreenath had fared better and deserved to be crowned as first.
    He never came to danger zone and we Malaylees forget to judge thrusting the focus on the talent but often found falling prey to some other factors other than merit.
    Of course, we know the business factor behind SMSes, cannot be dispensed with. However to counter leaving such an important decision to the sole foolishness inherent in many public judgment, such as this , year after year , it is better to reduce the difference of price amount between first, second and third.
    Let the organizers make first price as 45% 2nd 35% and third 20% from Season 5 onwards. For E.g. of total 1.6 croers, it should be 72 Lakhs for the first, 56 Lakhs for 2nd 32 Lakh for the third. In such cases , every though public judgment goes wrong, yet the reduced disparity between prices will not pinch much to the losers who looses the spot not due to his demerit , but due to the demerit for getting biased support from the psychological immature General Public .

    Congratulations JOBY…Wish you all the success in your life…

    CONGRATULATION JOBY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    GOD BLESS U!!!!!!!!!!
    WISH U ALL THE SUCCESS IN UR LIFE!!!!!!!!

  5. Joy Lonapan - Brisbane says:

    Congrates to All, I do Agree with Nathan on a imbalance on prize as well as merrits. All the five contestants have equal talents. Fate or luck may help some one in one day to perform well on that day. Since this is a talet show, merit should be given more weight than luck/fate i.e SMS votings. SMS Votes have to be surveyed and analysed to identify that the user votes are based on performance rather than other emotional factors. A Suggestion for performance based judgements: Three Criteria Selection for Winners : A) Panel 1 : 3 Judges (2 from Music Field + 1 From Performace/Arts Field (40% Voting) B) Panel 2 : A Selected Voluntier Panel of Music/Performace Professionals or institutions accross Kerala (This may include the performance artisists & Musicians behind the studio) (25% Voting) C) Panel 3: Viewers SMS (35%).
    One more suggestions : If asisnet could include a contest between previous semifinalists and finanlists for a MEGA Final.

  6. devu says:

    congratulations Joby i thought u wil be the winner

  7. Joy says:

    MUSIC SHOULD NOT EVALUVATED ON THE BASIS OF ‘SMS’. NAYANA WAS GOOD SINGER AND SHE WAS OUT.AND VIDYA WAS A GOOD SINGER HE IS ALSO OUT.ANJU AND JOBY SHOULD HAVE OUT IN THE SEMIFINAL. AND WE EXPECTED RAHUL AND NAYANA WILL BE IN AND JOBY AND ANJU WILL BE OUT… I THINK THERE IS A ‘HIDDEN POLITICS’i.e in order to get more votes, they kept JOBY in the final.only 4 getting votes,ASIANET REALLY CHEATED THE WHOLE WORLD VIEWERS. really made us foollllllllllllllll-EVEN THEN CONGRATS TO ALL THOSE WINNERS.

  8. manu says:

    joby you are rock

  9. shiji says:

    vidhya you rocks man…eventhough you r in 5th place our singing and talent is really good all the best for ur future . you are always first in viewers heart

  10. latheef.dubai says:

    congrajulation mr joby john.god bless you.latheef from calicut.

  11. tuts says:

    Joby, you have won out of sympathy. When the cometition came half way, the judges have decided to give you first. So even if you forget the song or dont sing proerly, surely you will get because, you were the target to make money for asiant like the previous years sannidanadan and somu.

    Sreenath should have got the first. He is the real singer. His voice , his performance and his confidence was adorable and Joby should have got the 2nd prize. Any way the Asianet and the judges have made real fools of the audience.

  12. Sheju says:

    Singers will come and go but Yesudas will stay on for ever. I respect only the true artist that is Dr.K.J Yesudas rest are all Mimicry artist.
    This Idea star singer is pure politics stay away from it.

  13. MaRaf says:

    Congratulations Mr. Joby!!!. But if the winner will decide purely based on talent Mr. Sreenath is deserved the Crown and Vidya will be 2nd. Asianet proved that ideas star singer is a tru professionally designed business oriented (money making) program!!!…

  14. Arun says:

    Congrats Joby….Playing the sympathy card and garnering votes???Then why have judges…It should have been SMS all the way through..Anyways thats how the IDEA STAR SINGER business model works..
    & will continue in the same fashion…

  15. Mithin says:

    Sreenath was far better in performance as well as singing. If it was purely based on merit he should have won. But often sympathy plays a villain in such shows, deceiving public, thus stealing the crown from desereving ones.

  16. kk says:

    idea star singer is pure politics ?

    You are blind(and deaf) enough to think that KJ Yesudas is the only singer in the world, no wonder you will say this. Even KJY will not say that.
    You should understand that, these reality shows are making a silent revolution where you can hear better singers, and it is a platform where you could atleast understand that KJY is not the only great singer here.

  17. SWETHA says:

    Congratulations joby. Wish you all the best. you are a very good
    and talented singer. God bless you

  18. Srimathi says:

    Congrats joby!!! but sreenath deserves the first place. This is a stage where they say no hidden things.but sms is hidden like Alps. What was the singing quality of joby yesterday? Just judges think fairly. Undoubtedly joby is a good singer, but yesterday sreenath, preethi and vidhya did well than joby. If sms plays a major role how sannidhanandhan and somadas were eliminated in the earlier stages?Atleast from 5th season do a fair judging and since the price money is a huge amount give it to a really talented singer. Do not fool the viwers. To be a winner in ISS contestant should forget songs many times and beat around the bush. Really i feel very sorry for sreenath.
    In millions of hearts sreenath is the real winner.

  19. tuts says:

    I cannot stop witing against this unfair decision. Last year Vivekanadan for got the song twice in the stage (for classical round and mappila pattu round). But he got troght both the stages. This year Shika being a very talented singer and at any cost a Grand Finale contestant , she was eliminated just coz she forgot the song. This is really POLITICS the channel and the judges are playing. Last year Vivekanadan came first HOWWWW? Why Shika was elimiantaed this year just for that reason? All tricks of Judges and Channel. Sreekumar and Sarath is really playing games. They get money from ASIANET.

    DEAR ASIANET,
    ATLEAST MAKE THE PRICE MONEY AS BELOW:
    1ST pRIZE : 75 LAKHS
    2ND PRIZE : 50 LAKHS
    3RD PRIZE : 25 LAKHS
    4TH PRIZE : 10 LAKS
    5TH PRIZE : 5 LAKHS So that the contestants will not be disappointed as well as the audience. Think of atleast the struggle and tension these contestants have taken whole year through.

  20. kiran says:

    Yes! Sreenath deserved the crown. I am also feeling sorry for him. He is really a super star. My heart broke watching his facial expression while announcing the winner. May God bless him throughout his career. Anyway congratulations to Joby.

  21. meghna says:

    WHAT A SHAME TO MUSIC !!! Please stop this type of business. JOBY doesn’t deserve to be the winner. All the other contestents were far ahead of Joby as far as music is concerned. This is not a reality show nor a music contest. It is some thing else.

  22. Rohit says:

    As people have mentioned earlier, joby is a very good singer and his talent coupled with his impoverished upbringing may mellowed many hearts..But it should’nt have been to such an extent that he actually wins the competition by a landslide margin..Any self respecting person who has been following the show regularly will tell you that sreenath and preethi have been the two most consistent performers in this seasons competition..Particularly sreenath was very impressive as he was versatile enough to conquer any genre..Sure supporting the underdog is fine but i don’t understand it when it comes to cheating the deserved candidate of his prize..

  23. Unnikrishnan Al Ain says:

    Dear Judges or Organizers of IDEA Star Singer Season 4,

    You cannot fool all the people always. If Mr. Joby was declared as the winner purely based on his performance, none of the judges currently sitting on the dias are qualified to judge the quality or skills of a talented singer. Hencforth, such prgramme should be named as “SMS ELECTION OF IDEA STAR SINGER SEASON 5”.

    Similarly, it is very unfair to give 95% of the price money to the 1st winner and others [like 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th]are left behind with nothing. Pls. don’t insult other talented Singers like this.

  24. Saranya says:

    Congratulations joby. Wish you all Success in ur life have pleasant year ahead….

  25. annu says:

    REALLY SHAMEFULL…..ITS NOT AMUSIC REALITY SHOW, ITS ONLY A BUISSNESS.. ASIANET IS MAKING THE AUDIENCE FOOLS…….. HOW JOBY GOT THE CROWN….. SREENATH DESERVES IT.. OFCOURSE JOBY IS TALENTED..BUT SREENATH IS MORE AND MORE AND MORE TALANTED THAN JOBY,, HE SHOULD HAVE WON THE CROWN…….PLSSSS STOP SUPPORTING THIS SHOW… THEY ARE CHEATING OTHERS..CONGRATS JOBY, BUT YOU SHOULD REALISE THE TRUTH.. WHAT YOU HAVE WON IS ONLY BECZ OF SYMPATHY, YOU DESERVES ONLY THE SECOND PRIZE… FIRST PRIZE REALLY DESERVES TO SREENATH ONLY SREENSTH…SREENATH YOU ARE THE WINNER IN THOUSANDS OF MIND… DON’T BE DISSAPOINTED..YOU ARE THE REAL HEROOOOOOOOO…….YOU ALWZ ROCKZZZZZZZZZ.GOD BLESS YOU SREENATH.. YOU WILL HAVE A BRIGHT FUTURE THAN JOBY..ITS SURE

  26. rasmi says:

    Sreenath you are the WINNER for your versatality in music. Joby is just a winner of sympathy. Sreenath dont lose heart because the whole world has seen how well you sing a carnatic song also a fast number. Your talent will always pay you. Congrats Sreenath.

  27. Priya says:

    The winner should be Sreenath,not Joby.

    Dont worry Sreenath ,we all with u.
    All the best for u.

  28. Binny says:

    Congrates Joby! Atlast your hardwork worked. Be a good person in your whole life and sincere to whatever u do. What all comments people say about you dont worry, you can overcome all these with your honesty and ability. Show the world what you can do OK! I will always pray for u and ur family.

  29. annu says:

    I AGREE WITH YOU RASMI AND PRIYA……… SREENATH SHOULD BE THE WINNER

  30. Nayan says:

    JOBY you are a junior Yesudas. you are very talented. your
    personality is very good. you are very humble. I like very much

  31. manjusha says:

    Hearty congratulations Joby. Yiu are good singer.Don’t worry

  32. Nirmal says:

    It doesn’t matter who won the crown.

    What matters the most is the huge exposure these singers have recieved. People from the music industry are watching and if they feel someone else is more talented than Joby they will get more chances.

    Winning the Idea Star singer is just a milestone. There are more challenges and opportunities ahead for these talented singers. And those are consistent and persistent will eventually win in life.

    -Nirmal

  33. MSH says:

    The Most unfair descision the era has seen, The name of Idea Star singer should change to Idea Asaniet money maker, through the unfair descion the prominent judjes has spolied their name and reputation, they should not come for this type of money making events. Every one who watches Asianet knows Sreenath is the one who deserved it this time, other than Asianet money lobby.

  34. valyramu says:

    Anju is the real winner. She deserve it.

  35. Raji says:

    HI JOBY CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    WE ALL DELHI MALAYALEES WITH U

    BEST OF LUCK

  36. babitha says:

    Like all other malayalee, i also feel that idea star singer is totally commercilization of music.The host Ms. Ranjani was so rude and was shouting like anything in grand finale.She has become so overconfindent that …..she sometimes utternonsense. They have to bring change otherwise the TRP will go down.The total show was very much like fixed ….

    babitha

  37. Aravind says:

    Sreenath should have been the winner. Mark should be given to the talent and not for sympathy. The judgement should have also considered the overall performance of the participants based on all the episodes throughout Season-4.

  38. devi says:

    I am hugely disappointed with the results of Idea star singer season 4.
    It is very obvious that Sreenath is the winner.n at the same time, vidyashankar stands second.both of them are true performers in terms of consistency and also performance.
    But now what can be done….the verdict is out.
    all i can do is to convey my support to sreenath and vidhya through this mail.

  39. ammus says:

    realiy i love u r song joby ,god bless u ,

  40. Sandeep says:

    For those who protest against Joby. The result is final ….HEARTY CONGRATS TO JOBY

    Joby – He has come up to this level because of his hardwork/talent and not sympathy. If sympathy was just the factor, there were many other contestants from a poor family back-ground and none of them came up!

    Sreenath – He is a good singer but he gave priority to Performance & mimicry than singing.

    Preethi- Final stage performance was bad. Just because of the Judges support you reached the final stage instead of Nayana/Shikha.

    JOBY MY DEAR…… REALLY SUPER… PARAYAAN MARANNA PARIBHAVANGALLL…

  41. ammus says:

    JOBI CHETTANU ENTEA AMMAYUDEYUM ENTEYUM ELLAVITHA ASAMSAHALUM NERUNNU

  42. mini thomas says:

    hearty congrats to you joby,leave the people who critisize against you ,you r a real good singer.you proved it yesterday.where was theese people who r supporting sreenath yesterday,if they think,sree deserves it,they could vote for him.it is not fare to critisize someone,just because he has a poor back ground.do you all think that a crowd of 5 lack people r really fools.then you r meor fool than them.not a person can cheat a big crowd.can may cheat a small,but not such a big big crowd.what was wrong with jobys singing yesterday?do you mean to say the judges r fol too.he got 85 marks and sreenath had only 81.does’nt it matter the judgement.pls is ok not to cangratulate someone,but do not put someone down,just bcoz you have some personal grudge against him.HEARTY CONGRATULATION TO JOBY,YOU RALLY DESERVE IT.YOU WILL GO FAR AHEAD.WE ALL LOVE YOU.

  43. Santhosh says:

    TUTS… IT IS VERY SAD TO READ YOUR COMMENTS. I CAN UNDERSTAND YOUR FEELINGS. BUT HELPLESS

  44. Mohan Kumar says:

    Asianet Idea Star Singer is 3 rated show – but what they are doing is using Money to get good judges… but ultimately they do not decide it is sms mafia that controls and appoints the winner.

    The Judges who are very talented people should not waste their time with such a Company (Asianet) – what value do they give the public and the young and deserving singers. They should really participate in getting talented singer by making their judgement count and not the SMS.
    The Idea Star Singer compere Rajani has very poor command of the Malayalam language, and year after year she comes back with her booming voice – which really make me sick.

    Why does Asianet you expose to the Millions of people around the world that they are not looking for talent but only money.
    End ofthe day, it is Asianet that is out there making money and kiiling malayalam talent.

    This years Idea Star 2010 Singer is a poor choice.

    How did he get that much of SMS?
    How do you know that some kind of cheating did not take place?

  45. leema says:

    really im surprised !!!!!!! no one mention the name preethy….she is the real singer of the show.after first 2 rounds she gotta highest marks..but her sms was propotionally very low..but im not agreeying that joby won out of sympathy.if it is so sanny might be in the grand finale..so joby yiu are a great singer..go ahead….

  46. Amal Alex says:

    I had never thought that Joby would be the winner.Good job
    Joby.Because of the sms i and people had sent you.CONGRATS!!!
    hearty congrats to you joby,leave the people who critisize against you ,you r a real good singer.you proved it yesterday.where was theese people who r supporting sreenath yesterday,if they think,sree deserves it,they could vote for him.it is not fare to critisize someone,just because he has a poor back ground.

  47. Annie says:

    Hearty congratulation joby.You realy talented singer. god Bless You.
    Dont worry about other comments.

  48. Thankachen Thoppil says:

    Have gone through all the comments.It shows malayali’s cheep reaction. Many were criticising the WINNER and the CHANNEL. Afterall the progarammes itself says about the selection of the winner.Do they think all othose who voted for JOBI are fools? It was PERFECT selection. No doubt JOBI got what he deserves. Ofcourse others were also best singers and performers as well, especially SREE.

    JOBI, God Bless You More & More…! C O N G R A T S.
    Best Wishes for all other contenstants.

  49. Noby says:

    Congrats Joby..
    All knows Idea star Singer is a reality show based on SMS..Then at last why people are more angry on this subject? there r other shows without SMS where they can prove their Singing ability..From the starting everybody knows , SMS is a key factor..All the people now crying for Srinath are those without sending single SMS for him.. Majority likes Joby and he deserves it..no body can compare somu and sannithanam with joby..He is a good singer and he was first in calicut university youth festival..No body can forget ,Joby was first in most of the rounds than srinath..Also he got higher marks in final also..It was judged by our great singers..it is not fare to critisize the judges, if ur favourite contestant is not won..

    i am 100% agreeing to sandeep, Joby is a far better dancer& perfomer than Srinath..srinath having no flow in dance..only some mimics of vijay..

    And i know all these people who commented against Asianet and SMS, will surely watch season 5 and at last day they will comment without sending an SMS..

    Congrats once again Joby..u R our new hero..Ur name alreay written in history with golden letters..Srinath is just belwow u..

  50. Noby says:

    Also in previous year, the same peple from Kerala , they elected Vivekandan.. Bcose he was the best…there were so many poor cadidates than vivekandan like Somu..but people elected the most deserving person from a financially sound family..
    So it is very unfare to critizize joby that he won prize becose of sympathy..All knows Joby sung far better than Srinath in final..So he judged as the winner..

    So Congrats to OUR Joby.. from ur fan Noby

  51. Swapna says:

    Injustice to Sreenath. he is really talented. we believed ide star singer is not acharity show. stopped watching this bloody show

  54. Abraham says:

    I am not a fan of Idea Star Singer or any other similar programs on TV, though I like music. However, I came to watch the grand finale program from the middle and based on my sensibility and sense, I would say that Joby John sung much better than the other guy, speciality the last song. The song sung by the other guy, ‘Sumuhurthamayi went flop and it was undoubtedly clear that he cannot sing such songs. Also, he was over confident as well as a person with lot of pride,which are not good for any aspiring person.

  55. Anitha says:

    Hi Sreenath…dont worry…we all are with u..still u r the winner in our heart…I cant agree with that judgement…its unfair…while u were standing in that stage,I couldn’t see your face after announcing the results…even though Joby is a good singer,u r the most deserving contestant to win that title…I dont know how it came like this…u sang very well in that final stage…that “kattile palmulam” song was superb…other two songs also very nice..Now itself I couldn’t believe that…dont worry…u will shine in future than anyone in that show…its sure….in my opinion,u r the winner.because u r one or two steps better than Joby….ur consistency in singing itself prove that…ur hardwork wont fail…u will becom a great famous person than Joby…its sure….its not the end….its the starting of ur great future…. ur attitude,hardwork,tallent everything will take u much much higher position…a kind request to asianet…dont retelecast the final,because we cant see the disppointment and that sad face of Sreenath….all the best for Sreenath to achieve high position in life…..I m a big big fan of u. u only….
    .Sreenath u r rocking….i KNOW U r very disappointed…after first 2 rounds..u were the topper in marks…but in 3rd round it was a huge difference..how it came…its something politics in that….Sreenath u r really tallented…if the show is only for tallented contestants,not based on sms,u r thje winner ..no doubt in that…while seeing u in that stage,my heart brokes….dont worry Sree…I want to make frndship with u,if u r interested,please give ur mail id…

  56. A.Kunju says:

    Congrats Joby!!. Don’t worry about the all these negetive comments!. You are good singer and Humble man- thats attracted the people but not your financially poor background. Judges who given you the marks & 5.22 lac people who voted are not fool. carry on your singing carrier. Be Humble always. Pl. remember that, God will exalt the humble people always.

  57. Ajay says:

    It was already fixed. The judges were being tied their tongues by the management. Now everybody clearly understood the so called ‘Asianet’s credibility. In fact they pimps rather than promotors of real talents. Everybody should refrain from this meaningless and stupid show. Idea Money Making Show

  58. Shanthi says:

    I hope Idea Star Singer requires talent in music,acting, mimicry, stage presence, personality and mass appeal.That makes the person a ” Star Singer”. Eg.Ms Usha Utup is a ” Star Singer” and Ms. Chitra is a ” Singer”. If only music has to be judged,why did all these poor singers make a fool of themselves acting like beggers ,lepers or idiots on the show! What were they judging? I respect all the singers and congratulations to all those who participated and the declared winners! ISS is a place where you can assess what you want to do with the talent of music in you, that is all. Be the crowd puller with high music quality like Usha Utup or be a heart melter like Chitra!

  59. RESHMI SANOJ says:

    congrats aii the winners of idea star singers.

  60. Leena Biju says:

    Hearty Congratulations to Joby. Can I have your contact number?

  61. kamal says:

    somebody are looked only joby’s family situation .he got above5 lakhs sms. this is not for sympathy , only for his tallent. otherwise ignore sms in grand finaley .consider only mark joby got 4 mark morethan sreenath. so jooby is NO 1 NO:1 NO:1 NO:1

  62. shiny sunand ,kuwait says:

    joby congrads.you desrve it. music is not like vijay style,its coming from heart,its god gift.

  63. rahul says:

    HI Joby
    congrates !!!! u deserve it U R talented u have great potential than sreenath

  64. Nice man says:

    hey joby
    congrates….u have done it gud luck

  65. cool guy says:

    Ignore wat criycisers say u r amzing singer over 5 lakh people behind u sreenath has just over 1 lakh and all these 5 lakh pepoles r not stupids

  66. DG says:

    Basically its the problem for all reality shows. All channels are not doing any big revolution to music industry or any other industry trying to find out talents and bringing them to public. They wanted to keep more viewership for their channels and thus get more ads and eventullay money. Also who said 1-crore worth villa is worth 1 crore? I even doubt if it’s half of that price. Coming to choosing the winner, even Asianet knows who deserves the price and who does not..But when you look this via business perspective, there will be confusion about whom should they select to make more revenue for the channel. Everybody will tell philosophy on paper, but when its coming to reality on personal matter, we always go for safer choice… Thats same thing Asianet did..

  67. sangeeta says:

    hey joby thanks to god for ur success all the very best for ur future,with prayers sangeeta.

  68. Naushad Salam says:

    I don’t know whether these posts are seen by the crew and the director of ISS if yes –

    I totally agree with Mr Nathans Post (100%)

    best of luck to all

    Congrats Joby. Forget about the bad comments from who blindly adore the imitating kids.You are the best.But keep practicing and take care about your voice.

  70. kumar says:

  72. kk Nair says:

    Congrats Joby.You have done an excellent work.You deserved the crown.Forget about the bad comments.it may be due to jealous or fan of some actors. congrats to judges also.they took the correct decision.
    we all gulf malayalees with you.

  73. Joseph says:

    WHY ASIA NET ENCOURAGES OR INFLUENCES PEOPLE TO SEND SMS TO THEIR FAVORITES.. WHY NOT MERIT ALONE DECIDES THE WINNER// IT IS CRYSTAL CLEAR YOUR IDEA IS FAR IN MAKING MONEY THAN PROVIDING AN ENTERTAINING SHOW/ JUDGES AND ANCHOR ARE SO MUCH ATTRACTED WITH THE IMMENSE REWARD OFFERED BY THE CONDUCTORS. WHO KNOWS HOW MUCH THEY POCKET. IT WILL BE MORE THAN AN AVERAGE NATIONAL CRICKETER . HENCE, JUSTICE WILL NOT COME OUT FROM JUDGES OR THE SHOW MAKERS, BECAUSE MONEY IS THAT DECIDES FATE OR SAY “WHERE EAGLES DARE”. I SUGGEST FEW THINGS:-
    1. APPOINT PEOPLES LIKE OUSEPPACHAN, OMANAKUTTY TEACHER, SUJATHA AND VENUGOPAL AS JUDGES (BECAUSE THEY ARE GENTLE, WELL MATURED AND NOT GREEDY
    2. REDUCE THE HEAVY PRICE MONEY / WORTH
    3. STOP THE DECISION OF WINNER BY SMS

    IS THE INCOME FROM THE ADs IS NOT ENOUGH FOR THE SHOW? BUT IF YOU WANT MAKE UNLIMITED FORTUNE BY A SINGLE SHOW, YOU CANNOT FOLLOW THESE SUGGESTIONS.

    Will Asiannet Star Singer ever chnage the pattern of price distribuion ? It is hightime to make the show to find out the real star singer and popular star singer

    Ranjinis Tone like a politician in Kerala, demanding to paise!. poor presentation like a firday eveing class room dramas and songs. The most deserving singers not recived the price accordingly. it is a polish selfish projection. I feel it is hard to comprehend the right feeling of the talent show. All respct and admiration towards judges and oragnisation from side is hoplesly faded. I dont like any more your show. the driction is tottaly now flope.

    Try someone diffrent this cry show image will die soon this way shouting in stadium the good look and good feeling of this show is lost

  77. Noby says:

    Why everybody is blaming Asianet and SMS..from day 1 everybody knows this reality show is based on SMS..if u r not beleiving in SMS, then there r other reality shows or Youh festivals or College festivals without SMS…there u want to sacrifice the popularity..
    so those whore r not interested in SMS and these judges please don’t watch season 5..i know everybody will watch this show..and at last day, they will put some comments like this if their favourite is not won..

    Congrats joby..God bless u

  78. chandini says:

    As Nathan said it is clear that Joby came on first place only becoz of Sympathy Basis…Till last round Sreenath performed too well comparatively JOBY. While introducing Joby to public unknowingly or by mistake Anchor give a hint that everybody knows how Joby came up to such a stage from his situation. At that time itself we were sure that crown will go to JOby.

    We have a request to Mr. Madhavan as well as Mr. Sreekandan Nair to change the existing great disparity among the first & Second prizes since all know that in final stage (OF SEASON 5) even if some unirness will happen in judgement it will not give a mental hurt to the second and third position candidates…

  79. Noby says:

    Chandini
    u forget one thing…Joby was in 1st place in many rounds than Srinath…also he got more marks than srinath in final without considering SMS…Nobody can reach final bcose of sympathy..Why vivekandan won previous time..he was from a financially sound family..why somu was not the winner..bcose vivek was good singer…no dout..

    Everybody knows Ranjini was a full supporter of srinath..She also commented in final Srinath came to final without appearing any danger zone..
    She commented about joby that he came from a poor situation and she forget to comment on his ability..naturally it will demoralize any people..u will feel very bad that moment..I dont know chadini, what is ur feelings..may u will become more happy by hearing these such comments..

    Joby was from a poor family..that was not his mistake..he was talented equally to anybody in final..and he did better than others in final..so he won the title..cograts Joby..we all here to support u..there r some chandini’s..they r one in lakhs..without sending single SMS..may be she is not beleiving in SMS..and these Judges..So please u change the channel.nothing will happen if u will not watch Asianet..

    Dear Joby John,
    CONGRATS for winning idea star singer season 4! You deserve it! Me and my family read all of the previous comments. Most them says that sreenath should have won. He also sang very well. But God chose Joby John, because he is very humble, honest and a very good singer. i’m not saying sreenath isn’t. God almighty has blessed you Joby. Keep it up and hopefully in the future you might become a famous play back singer. See you on television.God Bless you.

  81. BENOY DOHA says:

    Final stage of marks (3Rounds)

    )joby: 279
    2)sree: 253
    3)preethi: 249
    Joby is real winner.

  82. BENOY DOHA says:

    Music is coming from the heart not from the VIJAY STAYLE.JOBY IS INBORN TALENTED

  83. Johnny John says:

    Our viewrs on this show has a stand for second political Plot. Poverty and back ward cast grace mark,OBC, Poverty Mark, SMS, recent idea star singer 5 one girl even said Judges those who are present here i consider them Equily like God!. Why Sing a Song you wont be in final. Charming the people you dont win, it is SHOW. The people are judging in every way so kids and so called educated BE.? think before you speak. plosihing Judges and Anouncer Ranjini wont help in longer run! dont any one feel bad my comments. It is realy on my nerve now. I wish the best although it is commercial acpect it has to go certaine route- never the less power of Black Money without taxing CORE ruppes worth Bunglows!. i am not against the first prize. respect of this show is much lower standard than the Prize money. Each has deserved the ISS/SMS is the Talent show the Judges littely base the actual evaluation then fisx the prize then ask the SMS that would have been better result.Oh who I am to advise? thanks to publishing my View Point. Still I love songs realy it is Marvelous.

  84. Dr.Boby says:

    So many people posted comments here from their IGNORANCE…..We all knew that Sreenath was never been in dangerous zone so he deserve the winner.Absolutely “NO”…..Because of the DIRTY POLITICS FROM JUDGES especially MGS and Sarath, Sreenath, Rahul, Vidya and Nayana survived.(Listen to the Sreenath…Rahul and Vidya’s words when they lost…..We will act in the upcoming movie which is produced by MG). Winner was selected based on the performance in FINAL STAGE…..Joby got more than 35 marks than Sreenath….forget about SMS…..Many are posting comments by not looking at the facts….MANY WANTED TO BE BLIND FOREVER….SORRY FOR THEM…..

    JOBY SANG FANTASTIC AND WON….MILLIONS of music lovers round the world Love his talent and potential…..CONRGRATS JOBY…..YOU ARE THE WINNER….WE ALL LOVE TO SEE YOU HERE IN USA….

  85. chitra says:

    HAI JOBY CHAETTA,I love your performance.you are an inborn singer.don’t be get emotioned God always with you.I pray for god for your bright and peaceful future.I MISS YOU.YOU ARE ONLY THE NO.1 I SAY.plse say my wishes to your relatives and frnds.plse give me your email ID.PLEEEEAAAAAASE.

    Congrats Mr joby,Sreenath,Preethi.
    Sreenath you are the Real Winner in lakhs of mind. Don’t be disappointed. This is the real business of Asianet and other Crews.I do agree with Mr Nathan’s Commands.Jobyjohn is Innocent. The Reality show are not real. All the viewers are abandoned the show in future, otherwise the mode of selection should be change.
    The total prize money share in to 50:30:20 and con: prize for 4th and 5th.

  89. teena says:

    joby def deserves to be the winner no matter wat everyone says.. sreenath is full of jaada… he can’t sing tht well either.. so be quiet everyone.. accept it joby is the winner no matter wat everyone says..joby won not because of sms becuz of his hard work, prayer and the grand finale scores he earned..dont be jealous.. sree doesn’t deserve it..god is with joby and he got it because of tht and the scores, unlike sreenath,,he didn’t even smile when joby won.. he has attitude problems..

  90. Subramanian says:

    The final results are shocking.seenath deserves to be the winner and Vidya do not deserve to be eleminated.Just like IPL match fixing/frauds–CWG frauds/correption, this is another fixing “Idea star singer fixing”even before the final show the results were leaked from the asianet studios(ref–msg from a member of http://www.keralites@google site)This is quite unfortunate and amounts to fooling the public .If SMS is the main criteria why stalwarts like MG srikumar,Chithra,Sarath&PB,should be there as judges.Is this their judgement.if so their credibility is under scanner,If not why they are still there for eason 5–Insult to music–Also it is high time Ranjini change her style Malayalam english mix.It is ok for one season–Or else let some other talented girl get a chance–
    As pointed out by some of the above friends price money should be 50%-30%-20% ratio other wise no charm–for runners up participants—
    OL improve for season 5—-

  91. Vinu says:

    JOBY …YOU ARE THE WINNER….YOU ARE THE BEST….NOBODY CAN CHALLENGE YOU…CONGRATS…..MAY GOD KEEP BLESS YOU

  92. Santhosh says:

    FOR THOSE WHO CRITICIZE JOBY… THE RESULTS ARE FINAL AND JOBY IS THE WINNER. HE DESERVES IT. THE JUDGES ARE SUPER TALENTED PROVEN SINGERS/DIRECTORS. WE ARE NOT GOING TO CHANGE THE PRIZE MONEY ON 50% 30% AND 20% RATIO. THIS IS OUR DECISION. WE DON’T FORCE ANYONE TO WATCH THE SHOW.

  93. arya says:

    joby doesnt deserve a final berth. even in the finals the judges would have been forced to give joby good marks bcause anyway he will win purely on sms, so the goodmarks was a face saving exercise. the anger on sreenath’s face said it all. cheating the public and killing real talents

  94. Vinu says:

    Arya
    May be you are a Sreenath fan,it is your choice. But Sreenath and Joby are two different talented people…One is good in singing(Joby), the other is good in Mimicry(Sreenath). I am not a fan of neither one, but the truth is that Sreenath cant able to sing like Joby. Sreenath came to finals because of MG and Sarath, who always give him higher marks even though they commented his songs in so many mistakes. In Joby’s case, judges makes comments with less mistakes and give him low marks. Also you have to realize that MG had some hidden agenda about Sreenath, Rahul, Vidya and Nayana(his upcoming movies).As a judge he shoudlnt do that, but it is his choice. Also in finals, Joby sang outstandingly well compared to Sreenath. It is the fact. If SP or Chitra werent there, even if joby sang very well, Sreenath wins defenitely(we know the politics).SO SREENATH CANT COMPETE WITH JOBY….IT IS THE FACT THAT WE ALL KNOWS…MAY BE YOU ARE NOT…MILLIONS OF MUSIC LOVERS KNOWS THAT JOBY SHOULD BE THE WINNER

  95. Vinu says:

    Arya
    You mentioned about the anger in Sreeanth’s face.It is true, he was very angry.He never even gave a hand shake to Joby as well. It is an immature psychological defense.Sreenath expected to be the winner(with support from MG and Sarath-may be he gave a lot of money to MG or Sarath to influence the result) and he cant accept Joby who sang outstanding in that competition. Money doesnt work all the time…..GOD sees the truth…lol

  96. Babu Kuttiakdan says:

    Congratulations..Joby…….,
    Your achievement is giving more inspiration to the young generation who has apart from the main stream….

  97. adarsh says:

    Joby you are a great singer. Don’t mind the bad comments. Keep on practising , God will help you to achieve you goal.

  99. asha says:

    hai..joby dont mind all the bad comments..really god is with you.many times i watched that u r not in the list of vidya,sreenath and rahul..always u was alone.congradulations

  100. suresh says:

    Hi Joby You really deserve the first prize. From the first episode itself, you are the only one who sang outstandingly well. Of course towards last few episodes, you had some problem. But that does not matter at all.e Shikha and Nayana were just after you, but unfortunately they got out. Nayana should have been in the final. All others who were in the final were just above average.

    May God bless you in all your future programmes….

  101. vishnu says:

    well done joby be brave

  102. SK says:

    Hi Joby,

    Congrats!!!!!!!!!You really deserve this prize. Best of wishes.

  103. Sheena Prasad says:

    Hi Joby congrats!!! You really deserve it. don’t worry about the criticism. You know for every good thing there is some criticism in our world.

    Every body knows that Idea star Singer is a SMS based reality show. Surely sometimes the participants eliminating on the basis of SMS too.
    But Marks also a big part. Even on the elimination round, participants in the danger zone are getting a final chance to become in only depending on their singing wise mark on the elimination round.

    But unfortunatelly some good singers like Sikha, Nayana are gone out depending on their marks and SMS too.
    But in case of Joby, he is not like sanni or somu. He is a very good singer and also a performer coming from more unfavourable situation.
    Many time he sang without any mistakes. That why peole like him very much. Really he is a outstanding singer and performer too. His marks was also very high. But unfortunately at the end rounds he have some problem for his throat. This is the only reason his marks come down in the end rounds and it also affect his confident level and Sreenath bacome Topper in that rounds. Then fortunately in the final stage he recovered from his throat problen to some extent and he sang very well especially ‘Parayan Maranna Paribhavangal…. ‘and also peoples supported him throgh SMS for his singing.

    He is not a winner of sympathy. He is really a great singer!!!

    Idea Star Singer is a good platform for every contestants who participate this competition. Doesn’t matter who wins or who loose but this is agreat oppurtunity for the junior singers!!!!

    Dears, think positively instead of blaming!!!

    it’s not fair to critices JOBY……… He is really talented ……Is sympathy the factpr to win…. then y sanni, somu, sinimol.didn’t get first prize………….. Is he got first in light musuc in calicut university accdng to sympathy……..he deserves the crown becoz he got more mark not only sms…….the only factor behind the critcism is that he was born in poor family………
    joby we like u very much GOD BLESS U……….

  106. SINI JOSEPH says:

    Congratulations!!!!! JOBY, You are talented singer.The music world has recognized your inborn talent. All the very best & a bright future.

  107. ramesh warrier says:

    joby is a good singer.he desrved the crown.but he has to fine tune his sound for open throat.sreenath was trying to be a hero by imiatating vijay and it was horrible and boring. he even didn’t congratulate joby, which shows he is immatured and jealousy.preethi was also imitating some singers like janakiamma etc.nayana and shikha are good singers.but unfortunately they couldn’t come to the final stage.anju is ok.special thanks to judges.anchor is too boring and several time in season 4 she over acted and made inappropriate comments, which hurt the contestants.she is biased also.asianet has to find some young ,lively popular anchor like rimi tomy for their season 5 star singer programme.

  108. latha krishnan says:

    I agree with Ramesh warrier. Joby deserved it.the sms shows how all amalayalees like him.Joby has to improve his low register.nayana is a good singer.but she has to improve.vidya is a polite guy.preethi and sreenath are imtatating other singers.sreenath has to understand that keralites won’t tolerate cine heros imitations on the stage of singing competition.the anchor should not be biased.she was always with preethi and sreenath.some comments she made about joby was improper.it’s better to have a lively,smart,talented and popular singer like rimi tomy as an anchor for asia net.theh definitely their season 5 will have more audience.Jyotsna is also ok for this type of show.

  109. Rency says:

    IT IS TIME FOR RANJINI(ANCHOR) TO GO.SHE DOESNT HAVE ANY MANNERS.AT THE FINALS STAGE SHE WAS SCREAMING, SOMEONE HAS TO TEACH HER HOW TO BE AN ANCHOR.

  110. raj says:

    Congratulations Joby,u r the good singer thats why got a crown,i love you.

  111. Krishna Nair says:

    So Asianet thought of going for a damage control excercise. They brought back Joby in yesterday’s episode to make people understand that Joby was after all not a bad singer like people opinioned. I am sure they must have pre-recorded Joby’s voice and modulated/corrected ( there are lot of software which does this) all the out of pitch notes to make him look like a real good singer. What an effort!! Whatever you do Asianet, for us Sreenath is the winner. I am so disgusted that now I don’t even feel like watching the star singer.

  112. Ravi says:

    Let us stop this argument in judging ourselves the real singer, Joby or Sreenath.
    Let us leave this judgment to the flow of time .Down two to three years if both of them pursue their singing lessons, then their talent alone will make them stay afloat. That point none will enjoy a song just because it was sung by their today’s favorite
    Ultimately it would be their talent alone i.e. their voice and Sangathi or Shruthi and Melody and depth in their voice, which would tell us who shold have been the real winner in the star Singer Season 4. Then the public would realize whether there current judgment was wrong or not. In the Religion of Music, there is no place for Fanaticism, Communism, Castism, Capitalism, Compassion or Coldness.
    However, it would have been better if the disparity of price money between winners and losers were reduced considerably that it would become helping hand to all of them to grow further. When the talent between competitors itself is wafer thin , why there should be such huge difference in price Money .Let the price money help talents singers to grow and not to make them abrupt rich.
    Another Suggestion : Let Kerala Channels do not confine to create Signers alone. A small state and so many singers! There are other fields to find talent other tan singing talent alone. Let them start Quiz or competition of international standards, on Computer Skills, Elocution, Extempore speech, GK or Managements or the like which will help our state in many ways.

  113. mini thomas says:

    Krishna,pls do not watch asianet.people like you should not watch the show,bcoz.you cannot appreiate a poor singer.you all say that joby won the crown out of sympathy.were you deaf to hear his last song?
    if he is not a good singer he would never win the show.probably you may not know that Ranjini,sarath and M G were supporting sreenath much and was trying to put joby down,but THE GOD did not let it happen.JOBY REALLY DESERVE THE CROWN.you sreenath fans,go to hell.

  114. Krishna Nair says:

    Mini, I had not shown my rant after Joby had won. I had only showed it after they brought Joby back to the show to prove that people who felt sreenath should have won were wrong.. Joby had won and people commented on various aspects. But why should the channel try to clarify things. Even the last year’s star singer as per me was not the right choice if weighed in terms of talent only. But ultimately the one on whom lady luck smiles, wins.. That is the format of the show. If Asianet had shown that marks wise sreenath or Preethi were ahead of Joby, but due to SMS he won. Fine with me.. Mind you, I never sent a single SMS for anyone, so don’t call me a sreenath fan.

  116. Aji, KSA says:

    Krisha
    Why do you say that Asianet modulate Joby’s voice to eliminate out of pitch notes. This is another “Big blunder” since you are a Sreenath fan. You can say anything, but the reality only god knows. So many NONSENSE COMMENTS posted by you and some of your friends about Joby. Please stop all these NONSENSE COMMENTS and listen to the facts that Asianet disclosed so many time. Sreenath is way below than Joby as a singer, but as a mimicry artist he is the best. Do you think Sreenath deserve a win,noway. Preethy and Anju sing better than Sreenath.

  117. Aji, KSA says:

    Krisha nair
    After the first two songs, Preethy got highest, then sreenath and third position was Joby.After the challenge song which Joby got 95 so he got 279 and Sreenath got 253, Preethy had 249. Dont you look at the difference and see who won. SMS is another factor(only 5%). But Joby won not because of SMS, it is because of his TALENT. Since Joby won, Asianet didnt disclose the marks at the end. It was the mistake that Asianet made.That is why Sreekandan Nair explained in MAILBOX about the Star singer marks

  118. HARIDAS says:

    I did not think of writing my comments about the decision on ISS Season 4 Final till Friday when Ranjini displayed the marks of each contestant secured. But now I wish to write.

    I am from Mumbai and we viewers of Asianet all over the world were anxiously seeing each stage of ISS. But we all (majority of people) were disappointed by the final decision taken by the Judges. Though Joby was performed well, but not upto the level of Sreenath through out the Season. This is a fact that all are aware. My suggestion is only ONE VOTE from ONE MOBILE No. should be taken as valid while considering SMS. This will understand upto some extent about the opinion of viewers of all over the world. The decision which was taken by the Judges in the Final of Season 4 will certainly affect the rating of ISS Season 5. I do not wish to say much more on this……………………….

    HARIDAS K R

  119. mini thomas says:

    some people are really jelous and cannot accept the fact that joby won,could be from certain personal grudjus.no one can reach the final stage of iss,if he or she does not deserve it.the judges will find ways to eliminate him.neither somu nor sunny reached the final stage.
    if sympathy is a factor,there were many other candidates who really deserved sympothy,than joby.i do not think,5.5 lack people from kerala are fools.try to accept that factor.
    joby has won the hearts of the people from various aspects.HE IS THE WINNER and he will reain as the winner for ever,no one will be able to break the no of his sms ,nor the mark he got for the final.LOVE YOU joby,go ahead,you will go far ahead and let the people knw that you can.GOD BLESS YOU.

  120. HARIDAS says:

    Mini’s comment of 5.5 lakh people is not a correct figure. One person can send thousands of SMS.

    I agree that JOBY is a good Singer, but not upto the level of Sreenath

    HARIDAS

  121. nithi says:

    dear joby chetta………..Congratulations

  122. Babu says:

    It was really GREAT and Joby is the WINNER. His singing used to give a vibration, Why we dont know.

    But I felt, the 2nd should have been to Preethi, 3rd to Anju, 4th to Vidhya and Seenath should have been to 5th only.
    He was just shouting only, No interest to hear him at all

  123. joicy says:

    Hai JOBI congrats u deserve to be the winner.forget about the bad comments.time will reveal that u r a talented singer.continue the hard work,be humble as u allways r and god will do the rest in ur life as he did in the past.
    few sugestions to asianet
    1.price money differance is huge,please try and make it equal among winners
    2.please dont reveal peoples background until the competition is over,we are looking at candidates talents not their living conditions.
    3.i was a constant observer of this program and noticed few comments of rengini about jobis background was humiliating and demoralising.we dont need to know wether he is poor or rich we only need to know is he rich in music?
    also i agree with few people who commented about anchor was shouting and screeming during finale,please be carefull renjini.
    one last thing sreenath could have congratulated jobi .congrats to all other winners too.we love music so we love u too.

  124. P.M.P.Kumar says:

    There is something fishy in this whole episode of I.S.S.Season 4.
    Any of the other 4 finalists were miles ahead in voice quality,rendering & performance
    In fact, there were plenty of contestants that were dropped in the previous lower rounds that were more deserving than Joby.The voice of Joby was very much strained & husky for many previous episodes including the finals.As this was a reality show, this is enough reason to be sent out. But he was merrily continuing. It would be a real surprise if he got a chance in future to singfor a recording with a voice like that . Two of the judges are currently composers & have offered to give opportunities to various contestants that were outgoing in recognition of their caliber( including the semifinalist Nayana Nair who has already sung in a film each for MG.Srikumar & Sharath).Joby was on various occacions in the danger zone whereas the 2nd placed contestant Srinath was never in the danger zone. Srinath was regularly on top & mostly in the 1st place.Upon hearing the announced final result ,Srinath’s stunned face with disbelief written all over it is the correct description of the whole show.The body language of all the judges & invited greats like SPBalasubramanium, Usha Udup & Pankaj Udhas were that of disappointment & dejection. They are not actors my friends.Joby’s SMS leaped 3 fold in the finals in a performance that does not justify it. Eventhe marks given by the very learned & capable judges does not vary like this.Even after the result declaration , except for one judge(MG.Srikumar, whose comment was sounding rather sarcastic,vague & a lot more) no other judge or invited greats like SP Balasubramanium, Usha Udup & Pankaj Udhas stated that the win had gone to a deserving contestant :- JOBY .Sponsors are always welcome.However , the value of the gifts are so high that there is a possibility for manipulations.One can find many Stalwarts in the music Industry(past & present) that have nor amassed this high a wealth even in their whole lifetime.I wonder if any one in the judging panel has earned a crore so far
    There is a enough ground to carry out an enquiry into the whole affair. There was somebody’s hand/s behind this & it definitly was not God’s, more so because of the recall of Joby to a facesaving explanation in season 5.As also in the finals the judges still did not comment & the bubbly Ranjini too was quite unconvincing.
    It is all a terrible shame in the name of music.The judges are all established for their caliber & should dis-associate themselves from the show

    It is incredible that malayalees can throw crores of money to a show like this but not a single paisa to the unfortunate living alongside us. Even Asianet has never announced any percentage of the proceeds to the less fortunate. The reality is that we are being made the fools. Fellow malayalees, please look around you & the next time you decide to vote in a contestant, think of those tiny outstreached hands hoping for a single meal. If asianet were to give at least 1/2 of the proceeds from the sms votes to the less fortunate, then you are also making a difference when you vote.

  129. Sij says:

    I also like to say congrats to Jobby, bt i also want to say as the majority said here,i dont think that Jobby deserve the 1st possition,I respect all judges especially Sharth Sir, bt I think the business behind this program doesnt allow them to judge the songs proper way,the method of judging also wrong according to me, here judges just follow the comments who said first they cant say even a single word opposition to the previous judge,plzz make it as a realty show

  130. mumthas says:

    Congratulations joby, sreenath, preethi, anju and vidya. Ilike you all. you all have your own singing style…
    Joby Yuor parayan marannu was superb. After Iread all these criticism I go back to hear your initial episoded and judges commets. your Ya ali, Jomm barabar, kochirajavu, latest hits, etc was superb… I know that in the last rounds you got low marks and due to that your confidence level reduced but you have done hard work and won the prize.
    Sreenath, you were also superb except sumuhoorthamayi, Iknow that your confident level reduced little bit and it effected in the song, don’t worry, you already prove that you are a good, versatile singer.

    may god bless you all….
    Joby, keep on practicing, I used to hear your parayan marannu almost everyday…
    thaks.
