Vanaysha Mogan: The winner, the one and only starboy and the epitome of versatility SparklesSRIDHAR SENASparkles! What a craze journey from a wild card entrant to the title winner. All credits to the people and of cos Sena's heart of gold! Truly deserving #Supersinger8Finale #SuperSinger #Sridharsena

Kavya Kumaran: I feel like #SuperSinger has to quit making those videos about contestants. A talent should be identified without their background, just because someone is poor and comes from an extinct musical field does not make you talented.

Panadol: Is #Supersinger a competition about "The best singer" or "The most paavapatta contestant ?"

Why d emotional backstory angle all ?
Won't d voting public be swayed by such things ? Or is that the intention ?
Sirantha kural ah thaane thedureenga ? Face with rolling eyes

 Is #Supersinger a competition about "The best singer" or "The most paavapatta contestant ?"

Sri Devi KKA: As regards finale performances, we have seen better days from Bharath, Anu, Manasi. Today the stand out performers were Muthu Sirpi, Abhilash and Sridhar Sena. #SuperSinger8 #Supersinger.

( ) Flag of Malaysia: #SuperSinger was an utter joke and now it's clear that the audience are too. Sridhar Sena winning the title while better talented singers like Anu, Bharath, Abhilash are out on the scene. Jokes on you to think #SridharSena deserves the #Supersinger8Finale title.
