Nepal Idol season 2 Top 5 Performers
Among all the amazing people we saw, I am listing my best performers in the Nepal Idol season 2. Here are my top five performers of Nepal Idol. There is no doubt that all the singers are talented and deserving but when I have to pick some, these five are the ones that come to my mind.
Amit Baral is everyone’s favorite contestant right now. Judges also can’t stop praising his soulful performance. The best thing about Amit Baral is that he feels the song and sings from within. Amit Baral these days is creating a sensation on youtube as well. His recent performance on Nepal Idol Gala round 6 with Bikram Baral was also breathtaking.
Sumit Pathak is another talented performer in Nepal Idol season 2. Nepal Idol has given so many singers to the industry. And Sumit Pathak is one of them who has a great future in singing. He has proved himself time and again with great performances.
Ravi Oad (winner)
Ravi Oad is another star of Nepal Idol and has a great love for Nepali music. He always gives beautiful performances and has managed to impress the judges. Recently on the gala round 6 Ravi Oad with his partner Nilima performed the song Dashain ayo and it was awesome as well.
Bikram Baral (Runner-up)
From the very first performance, he is only becoming better. He has done a variety of songs on the stage of Nepal Idol and no doubt has done justice to all kinds of songs. Bikram Baral has also managed to get a good fan following. He also definitely has a great future.
Krishal is another performer on this list. When it comes to energy and soulful performance he leaves no stone unturned. Krishal is everyone’s favorite including the judges. His cuteness adds another charm to his personality. Recently, he remained in the bottom 3 but managed to be safe.
