The ‘Back to School format is followed in the show and the little Champs represent their schools. Aditya Narayan is the host of the show and the panel of judges includes the very talented trio of Himesh Reshammiya, Neha Kakkar & Javed Ali. There is also a 30 member Grand Jury which gives grades to the contestants and the average percentage of their scores is shown.
The jury members are experts from the music industry. Kids aged between 5 to14 years participate in this competition and then first in the audition round they are given 100 seconds to make an impact on the three judges and the 30 jury members. If two of the three judges say yes and the children score at least 50 percent of the support from the Jury members then they proceed to the next gala round.
In the Gala round, the best performer is selected by the judges who become the ‘Student of the Week’ and the participant gets to sit on a ‘flying sofa’ which means that the participant is safe from elimination in the next week. Then later in the competition, the audience gets to vote for their favorite contestant and the one with the highest votes in the final round wins the competition. Sa Re Ga Ma Pa has earlier given some of the best singers we have in our in our country today and now Sa Re Ga Ma Pa L’il Champs has provided the platform to thousands of children across the country to showcase their singing talent to the world and fulfil their dreams of becoming the biggest and famous child singers.

It is often opined that these reality shows adds a lot of pressure on the children and the longer they stay on the show they have the pressure to maintain their image. Counselling is very important and should be done to the children participating in the show and their parents. Counselling should be must on a children’s show so that they do not remain under any kind of pressure and their innocence is maintained and they can sing with a free mind.
