An Indian television channel is looking out for good singers in the one place that has escaped the prying eyes of reality TV -- the bathroom.
"Bathroom Singer," a new singing contest on the Filmy entertainment channel, will zero in on an untrained performer who's good at singing in the shower and can enthral viewers.
"We are looking for a combination of voice and a certain flavor. For example, the exuberance and energy with which people sing in their bathrooms," said Shailesh Kapoor, Filmy's content and marketing head, said late on Wednesday.
It was not clear whether the competition would eventually require participants to sing under a running shower.
Unlike the many youth-oriented reality shows that have become very popular on Indian channels, the creators of "Bathroom Singer" also hope to attract older contestants.
