The 24 candidates who had sailed through the earlier rounds have been participating in a 10-day long workshop in Chennai. Now the final four will be selected on the basis of voice, dance, fashion and personality.

The channel has roped in experts in the areas of music and fashion as jury members who will give the final verdict. They include prominent South Indian singer Sreenivaas, dancer John Brito, fashion expert Chaitanya Rao and music director Praveen Mani.

Talking to, SS Music president BD Ramesh Babu indicated that the channel would start telecasting the Voice Hunt show during the first half of October. The winners will do a pop album comprising eight tracks for Sony Music under music director Praveen Mani. The channel will create a video album for one of these songs.
