IANS  |  New Delhi 

Singer Monali Thakur, who has bagged a National Award for the Best Female Playback Singer for the song "Moh moh ke dhaage" from the movie "Dum Laga Ke Haisha", says it's an evolutionary phase in the music industry because the digital medium is taking over.

With a surge of many singing based reality shows in India, is a good reality show on singing missing from the small screen?

"It's an evolutionary phase in our (music) industry right now because of digital medium taking over literally on everything. People can now independently put across their work it directly gets go to the audience..." Monali, who was a part of the singing reality show "Indian Idol 2", told IANS.

The "Zara zara touch me" hitmaker said that there is "a lot of content on web and TV that attention has been divided..."

"That is why singing reality show was one or two before and now it's everywhere...The contestants are talented, but then the talent is spread over many other mediums," she added.
