Promises made are meant to be kept, that’s what we run with at Colors Infinity. This October, true to our word, Colors Infinity, takes your TV screen to an all new horizon with the first ever home grown English language singing show – The Stage, premiering on Saturday, October 10th, 9 PM. Hosted by the beautiful Shibani Dandekar, the groundbreaking new show has roped in four highly dynamic and eclectic music maestros as judges, who will thresh out the best from among 20 talented artists, and hand over the opportunity of a lifetime – a record deal with Universal Music, a 10 city tour along with a mentorship program to give the winner’s career that extra push.
Our fantastic four, each brings a unique quality to the table. A veteran in judging music reality shows, Singer and Music Director, Vishal Dadlani, is the seasoned and experienced mentor and judge. Judging a reality show for the first time on television, Singer and Actress, Monica Dogra, symbolizes the heart and soul of music and its ethos. Ace Music Director, Ehsaan Noorani, is known for his technical expertise and will bring that very prowess to the show.The Suit of the show, MD and CEO, Universal Music Group South Asia and EMI Music South Asia, Mr. Devraj Sanyal, has the know-how and command of the business.
Speaking about the breakthrough concept, Ferzad Palia, EVP Viacom18 and Head of English Entertainment, says “
The Stage is a platform that will showcase the best English language music talent in this country. Not only will the immense talent finally get a place to showcase themselves, but the doors to their future will be thrown open with the record deal at the end of the journey and us backing them for their career ahead”
Renault, our title partners of the show, are equally excited about the new venture, Virat Khullar, Marketing Head Renault India, said,
“The Stage is a fresh new concept in Indian Television which is bound to change the scope of entertainment in this country, and this belief in the show is the foundation of our partnership with Colors Infinity. We are glad that we can be a part of this huge transformation of English entertainment in India”.
Produced by SOL, the show aims to choose the best of the participants who will only be judged by the jury members with no voting from viewers. One artist will emerge victorious from amongst twenty young hopefuls through weekly performances, scrutiny by the judges and heart-breaking eliminations. The pot of gold on the other side, is the launch of the winner’s career with a record deal with Universal Music, a 10 city tour, a mentorship program, the full muscle of Viacom18 backing the winner’s music career across all its platforms and a brand new Renault Duster to ride in to their new life.
