  1. Most of us still can’t understand why Surendra didn’t win. All this time he was the one who got higher number of votes.

  2. we can not beleive…surendra should be the super star…
    something wrong somewhere…judges are also tried to promote pradeep ,because he is a docter(mrs.chandrika)….they did not consider the singing style…surendra used to take rhe highest votes during all this competion..what ever the result is surendra perera is the real super star…
    we wish him all the success….!

  3. Judges should be example to the others, specially to these up coming young artists. But it took the other way. Chandrika’s favouration was so prominent
    and degraded the whole event. Poor pradeep, crown which is not suitable for him will be a bourden to him.

  6. This says why we are failing as a nation. As a nation, we can’t resist change. We are determined to see things as we wanted them to be. We only believe in our opinion- which is allways right. Until we change this attitude, there will not be future for us.

  7. most of the sri lankan cant understand the meaning of ‘superstar’. It gives the meaning of allrounder.by singing Jothipala’s songs only nobody can be a superstar.Surendra Perera has a sweet voice.There is no arqument for that. But Superstar is Pradeep Rangana.He is very talented. because he is doing a seperate work. At the same time he has improved his singing ability.Learning medicine is not an easy task. At the same time he spends the time for music.It is a very rare ability. We should appreciate him. but in the case of othres, They are doing music only.From morning to night and from night to morning they do music.So dont be jealous of Pradeep rangana. He is a rare person who has multi talents.

  8. SUPER STAR IS, UNDOUBTEDLY, PRADEEP. THERE IS NO TWO WORDS ABOUT IT. HE IS A RARE GEM THIS COUNTRY HAS EVER PRODUCED. HIS VERSATALITY IN SINGING ANY TYPE OF SONG GIVEN TO HIM, WHETHER IT IS LOVE, NADAGAM, SHASTHRIYA, OR MOST MODERN SONG, SHOWS HIM THAT HE IS ” THE SUPER STAR “. ABOVE ALL HE HAS TAKEN PART IN THIS COMPETION WHILE STUDYING MEDICINE WHICH IS NO EASY TASK. WE ALL HAVE TO APPRECIATE HIS MULTI TALENTS & ABILITIES AND SHOWER OUR BLESSINGS ON HIM. ALL THE VERY BEST TO YOU PRADEEP.

  13. Pradeep borrowed / hired the entire personalty for the commpetition. The way he sang and the way he behaved missled chandrika. It can not be continued for ever. he must have his own identity. The day his own identity is shown the super star crown is wasted. Surendra has his own identity and he was not on his knees to please any body. He looked indipendent and confident.

  14. I totally agree with the wise comments of Ashik Gamage. A Super Star should be able to please all types of audiences. Pradeep was the only one in the contest to satisfy that requirement. So he rightfully earned the SS title. Pradeep impressed not only the judges but also all the professionals from various fields,who were invited to the panel to comment. We should appreciate that without even having studied music , Pradeep displayed such extra-ordinary skill in all types of music. I wonder if he becomes a ” Visharada ” of what level he would reach in the future !

  15. ACTUALLY I CAN’T UNDERSTAND THAT WHY SURENDRA WASN’T THE SUPERSTAR,COZ HE HAS A GREAT VOICE AND SWEET PERFORMENTS.BUT I’M NOT TELLING THAT PRADEEP SHOULDN’T BE ,COZ HE TOO HAS THE SAME ABILITY OF SINGING THOUGH HE HASN’T LEARNT MUSIC.A GOOD QUALITY OF PRADEEP IS THAT HE KNOWS HOW TO SHARE HIS HAPPYNESS WITH OTHERS,AND ALSO WE CAN’T SAY THAT SURENDRA HASN’T THOSE GOOD QUALITIES.(I would be glad to e-mail with u.E-mail me : dilhanim@gmail.com)

  16. Music Lovers of Sri Lanka have done extremely well this time by selecting the real Super Star for that heavy crown. We have no dought, Pradeep is the real Super Star and all the Sri Lankans must appreciate his good manners and gentleman qualities of sharing his success with Surendra. We no more want an other Jothi, onlything we want is a talented new Sri Lankan Singer with different varieties of talents.
    We wish Pradeep good luck! He is a real jem from Ratnapura.

  17. I like both his performance and his singing because at the same time he could satisfy both the judges and the audience. He showed his talents by singing Jothi’s songs as well as Amaradewa’s songs in the same stage. Its a rare ability. But he never imitates either of them. And for the final show, he had chosen the most suitable song for him from Jothi’s collection.
    I love it…… “Sanda Modu vela………”

  19. Pradeep is simply the best. He will be a model character to the generations to come in Sri Lanka.

    Wish you all the best

  20. Half of the vots went to pradeep’s profetional qualifications whcih was not a critiria for the contest. If pradeep was not a medico things would have changed for him. True he can sings well but his voice is a he/she voice which will not last long

  21. Surendraa is the superstar……no doubt…… Surendra keep itup….

  23. I have watched super star show right through out. After Pradeeps Hunsa Geethaya I knew that he is a talented boy. We want a talented person rather than a singer. Good luck for our sweet boy PREEP.

  24. SURENDRA PERERA IS THE REAL SUPER STAR. WHO SAYS HE CAN ONLY SING H.R JOTHIPALA’S SONGS, HE WAS MOST POPULAR WITH THE SONG “Nilla negena swarna kikini Rawe” Which is Milton Mallawarachchi’s SONG. CHANDRIKA’S COMMENTS, AND BEING A MEDICAL STUDENT MADE PRADEEP THE SUPERSTAR. I BELEIVE VERY SOON SRI LANKA WILL REALISE THAT SURENDAR PERERA IS THE REAL THING. Good Luck to you Surendra “Our Super Star”

  27. I think both were best..But my personal idea is Surendra was the Super Star..His voice,talente were marvalous..Nobody could touch him..Surendra is honest, innocent..He never showed off himself even he could…I like Surendra very much..He is my star forever

  30. Surendra is in our hearts, he was able to enter out hearts through his voice and no one can take that away….he might not be Sirasa’s super star but he is Sri lanka’s SUPERSTAR!
