Pakistan Idol Final Three: Who's Your Pick?


The competition is down to the last three finalists with the elimination of contestant Kashif Ali in the Top 4 Final in Episode 38 last Friday.

The top three finalists that now remain are:

Zamad Baig

Zamad Baig is a native of Mandi Bahauddin and is a true Pakistan Idol big break story. He has earned quite a following through displaying his talents on the show. Zamad is probably the only contestant left who seems to have an inclination toward classical. His idol is the great Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and he sang his timeless "Sanu Ik Pal Chain Na Aave" in the "Their Personal Idol" episode. His own maestro-like persona has certainly attracted attention and has added character to his powerful voice. But would his efforts be enough to outdo his rivals?

Muhammad Shoaib

Muhammad Shoaib is a journalist from Peshawar and is passionate about singing. Shoaib is down to earth, passionate and hard working. Used to working in some of the toughest settings in Pakistan, he is particularly enjoying the pampering that the Idol contestants get. His idol is Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and he sang "Mein Tenu Samjhanvaan Ki" in the "Their Personal Idol" Episode. He sings with passion alright, but does he have the kind of talent that is good enough to beat the other two contestants? 

Syed Ali Asad Zaidi

Syed Ali Asad Zaidi is the teen heartthrob of the show. Hailing from Karachi, Ali Asad is everything that you would want to see in a teen pop star. The News has even compared him to Zayn Malik for his resemblance with the British pop star. Ali Asad is young, fearless and energetic and is not afraid to take on any challenge. His personal idol is A. R. Rehman and he sang "Dil Se Re" in the "Their Personal Idol" Episode. Ali Asad is really enjoying the Pakistan Idol ride, but is he really good enough to clinch the crown?


For those who could not catch the action of the finals, it all started with strenuous, hilarious and sometimes even controversial auditions. Then, in Episode 19 airing on February 7, the 13 finalists were selected out of Top 24 semi-finalists.

Find out who is going to make it to the Grand finale and catch an exclusive performance by guest judge Abrar-ul-Haq and Fuzon on Geo Entertainment. 

Who are you rooting for? The youthful Ali Hasan Zaidi, the resilient Muhammad Shoaib or the folksy and talented Zamad Baig?
