The talented singer from Mathura, who never remained in danger zone throughout the season, also won a cash prize of Rs 20 lakh.
The grand finale of Rising Star season 2 on Colors proved to be a blockbuster affair with exciting performances from judges and contestants. Each contestant - Hemant Brijwasi, Vishnumaya Ramesh, Rohanpreet Singh and Zaid Ali - have something special to offer and the judgment of the finale has become hard. Rohanpreet Singh of Punjab grabbed 89% votes with his lovely performance, he sang Tum Hi Ho from Aashiqui 2. For the finale act, he put up a soul-stirring act crooning "Alvida" from Life in a Metro, that got him 85 percent vote. It was talent at its peak when both Rohanpreet and Vishnumaya stood inseperable after getting 78 percent votes from the audience. Vishnumaya then took over and sang Silsila Yeh Chahat Ka from Devdas.
The contest got intense with the finalists Rohnapreet, Vishnumaya and Hemant battling it out. Interestingly, Hemant was also the victor of Sa Re Ga Ma little champs 9 years ago. While Zaid was eliminated after the first round, there was still a close tie between the remaining three and it was hard to tell who will win the show till the last minute. He is the victor of the popular Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li'l Champs - 2009 and also participated in India's Got Talent and Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar 2. Rising Star is one reality show that is unique and got the audience interested with its concept. It's the only show that has given fans and audiences the complete authority to choose the victor and it's all live. The live voting show, judged by Monali Thakur, Shankar Mahadevan and Diljit Dosanjh, was much loved for its quality of talent this season. What are your thoughts on this?
