Six months after the completion of Season 1, The Stage, India's first English singing talent show, is returning with Season 2 which will start airing on Colors Infinity starting Saturday, 17 September.

This time around, many phenomenal singers from all over the country participated in the digital platforms, before auditioning in Bangalore and Mumbai. This niche show is searching for India's Next International Popstar and some of these contestants already are already mini-celebrities, who are more or less established in the music community and have quite a few fans.

After all, this season was promised to be even grander than Season 1, which received a widely positive response. "Evaluating the response to the first season of the show, we have broadened the horizon by inviting participation from all over the country through our online platform and on-ground auditions. Season 2 of 'The Stage' promises to be grander not only in terms of participation but also in the quality of the talent that we anticipate to grace the show. We can't wait for the euphoria to begin," New tech Café quotes Viacom18 EVP and head of English Entertainment Ferzad Palia as saying.
