“We always knew that there is no dearth of talent in the State and the contestants proved it today. It was indeed a difficult time for us to choose a winner since there were many talented singers under one roof. The winners are capable and I believe that they would give a good show for the upcoming music festival,” Suresh told TNIE on the sidelines of the event.
