The weekend episode of Indian Idol 12 was dedicated to legendary singer Kishore Kumar. The contestants and judges of the show paid tribute to Kishore Kumar and his 100 hit songs were crooned.

The latest episode also featured Kishore Kumar's son, singer Amit Kumar as a special guest.


However, as soon as the episodes were telecasted, the show started receiving backlash on social media platforms.


Several Twitter users took serious offence to judges Himesh Reshammiya and Neha Kakkar singing Kishore da's classics and not doing justice to the songs.

Here's how netizens reacted:

While Indian Idol 12 has seen some major changes over the past couple of weeks owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, judges Neha and Himesh have resumed the shoot last week.

Host Aditya Narayan, who had tested positive for coronavirus, has also recovered and returned to the show recently.

Last week, the show was judged by music composer-singer Anu Malik and Manoj Muntashir.
