The name of the show is Indian Idol. It is a talent hunt show. The central focus of this program is to find singing talent from all over the world. Firstly the judges visit places across India and overseas to look for talented singers who have yet to be able to perform on a reliable platform.

After making a list, they shortlist the suitable singers and invite them to participate in the show. The participants are given different singing tasks, and they have to give their best to get the trophy of Indian Idol.

The trophy comes to that singer who sings beyond the conventional domain. Apart from singing, personality and confidence are also taken into account.
