The fifth season of India’s Got Talent is creating waves with its spectacular display of talent hidden in the corners of India. And off-screen, the hashtag #IGTTwitterConcert created history on the Internet by becoming the gateway for the first crowdsourced, rather tweetsourced song on Indian television.
Since India’s Got Talent is all about people’s power, the idea was to engage people and let them show their word power and weave a song with the fans’ words. The audience, as well as celebs responded enthusiastically, with everyone trying to supply the words that defined India’s Talent. These are some of the tweets that celebs put out in support of this groundbreaking venture.
Manish Paul: Zindagi,jazbe se hai...aur jeet hunar se!!!my lyrics for #IGTTwitterConcert ,wats yours?
Gaurav Chaudhary: Here's my line for #IGTTwitterConcert! Aankhon mein khwab iraadon mein jaan Humara hunar humari pehchaan!
Smita Bansal: My line fo #IGTtwitterconcert ! hunar kabhi chootein na,hunar kabhi tootein na,aazma hunar tu sabhi.... Wats urs?
Sangram Singh: India ke hunar pe hi toh duniya kayaam hai. Don't you guys agree with it? #IgtTwitterConcert
After celebs, a lot of people took to Twitter to see their words become a part of the IGT song. We saw lines like
FaiZaL- #IGTTwitterConcert Talent ki he khaan,mera hindustan ! Duniya par chaa jayenge,hindustani dhoom macheyenge :)
Sin!- Asli Talents Ko Salaam Karke, Desh Ki Janta Ko Ek Manch Deke, Pratiba Ko Poshan Denge Jab Tak Hai Jaan! #IGTTwitterConcert
Darpana- #IGTTwitterConcert hunar ni chipta chipane se, fir darte kyun ho ise dkhlane se
Picking the best lyrics was a tough job, but it was done, and one of India’s finest bands Agnee got down to making the song a reality, all within 24 hours. And the result is - India's Got Talent: The #IGTTwitterConcert Song, which is nearing 65,000 views within days of its release.
While a talented bunch of Indians are waiting to impress the judges of IGT, the talent on the web has already made its presence felt through this song. Way to go tweeple!
