The first super singer season of the show premiered in 2007 and was hosted by Chinmayi. Of the many kids who auditioned for the show, 25 were selected to go on to the stage show, which consisted of a variety of interesting rounds. The judges at the super singer vijay tv studio were K. S. Chithra and Usha Uthup. Krishnamoorthy emerged the winner after a hard fought finals with an equally brilliant Vignesh, who had an amazing flavor for folk. The other finalists were Saicharan and Aparna (who won against “Madhumitha Shankar” in the wild card round) who also gave a very tough competition.
After the show’s conclusion and super singer vote, finalist Saicharan and semi-finalist Madhumitha Shankar went onto compete in seasons 3 and 4 of the senior version of the show. Saicharan was subsequently crowned winner of season 3 of Airtel Super Singer and chosen by music directors A. R. Rahman and D. Imman to sing in the films Godfather, Manam Kothi Paravai, and Saattai.
