A proud moment for India! Popular comedian Kapil Sharma, Arijit Singh and Armaan Malik have made it to the top 10 at The SSE Arena, Wembley in the “SSE Live Awards”.
The “SSE Live Awards” is an annual event in the UK that celebrates live performers at their venues in Wembley, Belfast and Glasgow and for the first time the verdict was thrown open to public voting, which started in December 2016 and ended on January 31, 2017.
Armaan ranked number four, Arijit bagged the seventh position and Kapil stood at number nine.
According to an English Daily, over three million votes were received for performers from all SSE venues and the results were announced on Monday.
What’s worth noting is that Arijit has performed in Wembley twice while this was Armaan’s debut act at the venue as part of his international tour.
“I performed at Wembley on September 24, 2016. It’s a date etched in my memory for life,” Armaan said to the daily.
“To be able to do a solo international tour at the age of 21 was a huge deal for me. Getting the opportunity to perform at Wembley was a blessing. It also proved that age is not a barrier. All that is needed to excel is talent and hard work,” he said.
Besides them, the top three at Wembley include Matt Goss, a British singer-songwriter based in Las Vegas, Babymetal, a Japanese metal idol band, and Thunder, a legendary UK rock band.
