After delivering great performances in Mumbai, Sayani was declared the champion of the season by judges Shankar Mahadevan and Bhavna Samaya, leaving behind Delhi’s Digvijay Singh and Mumbai’s Kanika Joshi. Shankar Mahadevan said, “Even if she didn’t win the show, I would have worked with her on an upcoming Bollywood project. When she was performing in the finale it felt like she was singing in a concert, not a reality show, which is indeed great.”
