Vineet Singh (Hindi: विनीत सिन्घ) (born 15 January 1989 in Lucknow, India) is a Bollywood playback singer.
Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2005
He began singing at the age of five. He was first noticed at the age of 16 in the music talent show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2005, a reality television program where the winner is chosen by public voting. Initially Vineet was not selected to participate in Challenge 2005, as he was considered under age, but he was accepted as a wild card entry. He became Himesh Reshammiya's protege and represented Reshammiya's Rock Gharana on the show. In the initial rounds of the show there was no public voting, and the contestants were judged by the likes of Pandit Jasraj, Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma, Kavita Krishnamurthy, and Jagjit Singh. Vineet, along with Nihira Joshi and Hemachandra, were the only three participants who scored a perfect hat-trick, getting through each round the first time.
Challenge 2005 became popular and he soon was a well known face on Indian Television. Other than Debojit Saha, he was the only contestant on the show who was never in danger of elimination.
Before the grand finale Debojit and Vineet campaigned in their home towns to garner votes. There were public processions, with the two being treated like celebrities. Debojit was the eventual winner of the Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge 2005; 50.42% to 49.58%.
Vineet's debut song in Bollywood was Dil Rang Le, a duet with Sunidhi Chauhan for the film Rocky: The Rebel (2006). Singh performed with Himesh Reshammiya in his international concert series "Aap Kaa Surroor" in the fall of 2006 with fellow contestant Himani Kapoor.
Jo Jeeta Wohi Super Star
In 2008 Singh appeared as a contestant on the show Jo Jeeta Wohi Super Star. He was a top scorer every week, but was eliminated. He was also seen in Music Ka Maha Muqabla where he was part of Himesh Reshammiya's team.
Aajaa Mahi Vay
Singh is the host of the dance show Aajaa Mahi Vay with co-host Rahul Vaidya, who was the winner of Jo Jeeta Wohi Super Star.
