The show started with a round of auditions. The judges had to decide who would go to the next round. Thousands of children were present at the auditions. Whoever the judges thought were good enough, were allowed to progress. The second and the final round involved only a little over a hundred kids. From this pool, the judges selected eighteen children who will be termed as the finalists, and will perform in the next round in front of a live audience. Kids who would progress next week were decided by combining the scores given to them by the judges and the number of votes they received from the public.
