Season 9: Auditions in 2021-2022, Here
- The general selection process of each season is begun by the production team with open auditions held in various cities across the India.
"Producers' Auditions", they are held months before the main stage of
auditions are held. Those that make it through the initial stage,
become participants in the "Judges' Auditions", which are held in
select cities across the country, and attended by the judges.
- Each participant is held offstage and
awaits their turn to perform before the judges, whereupon they are
given 90 seconds to demonstrate their act, with a live audience present
for all performances.
- At the end of a performance, the judges
give constructive criticism and feedback about what they saw, whereupon
they each give a vote - a participant who receives a majority vote
approving their performance, moves on to the next stage, otherwise they
are eliminated from the show at that stage. Each judge has a buzzer,
and may use it during a performance if they are unimpressed, hate what
is being performed, or feel the act is a waste of their time; if a
participant is buzzed by all judges, their performance is automatically over and they are eliminated without being given a vote. Many acts that move on may be cut by producers and may forfeit due to the limited slots available for the second performance.
- Filming for each season always takes place when the Judges' Auditions are taking place, with the show's presenter standing in the wings of each venue's stage to interview and give personal commentary on a participant's performance.
- During this round, the final
selection of participants, which has ranged from between 20 and 60 acts
and include those that were chosen as Wildcards by the judges or
received the Golden Buzzer, are divided into groups and compete against
each other for viewers' and judges' votes.
- The general structure of the live
episodes focuses first on four quarterfinals, and then two semi-finals,
aimed at finding that season's finalists. Additional rounds are
conducted when required (such as a "Top 8" or a "Top 10", depending on
- During these stages, the judges still provide feedback on an act's performance when it is over, and can use buzzers to prematurely end a performance before it is over; in the first season, the judges could not end a performance before it was over. Acts which do not secure a sufficient number of votes by the public and/or the judges, are eliminated from the competition.
