    Getting eliminated in the first round…I guess he is not that great singer. Tibetan singers have a long way to go, need a lot of work on their vocal range, copying other singer’s tune and the song doesn’t mean you are a real singer, it’s more of Karaoke.

    He lacks experience and quality. These days tibetan youngsters think uploading a dance or cover song video on social media and getting few likes make them big star. I have seen people uploading videos dancing in half naked clothes and they act like superstars in tibetan community. Same is the case with sonam topden. I personally think that tibetan youth should represnt tibet in a better way. By doing something original not by making a video using musically or by going live and smoking hookah or cigarette in front of there viewers.

    I am not a Hugh fan of Sonam Topten. But When in TV ads I saw him singing I feel like now Tibetans are rising. I think he did a great job. He was selected to perform on stage n dats the main thing. Stop criticising and let him appreciate for his work. Keep going
