Statistics and Popularity

How popular is Vaishali? How popular is SRGMP 2009?

SRGMP 2009 seems to be nowhere as popular compared to SRGMP 2007. Even Harpreet and Junaid had more popularity than most contestants this year. How do we measure popularity?

Orkut fan club sizes: We see that later contestants like Vaishali and Soumen are struggling to set up their fan club sizes. While Pratibha and Asma have sizes in the range of 200-400 people, most others are even lesser. Vaishali's fan club size ranges in 50-100s, and Soumen being the unlucky one with merely 30 people.

Youtube video counts: Seems like Asma and debojit are more popular than others. But this s only marginally true.

In any case, the numbers look about 10 times less than what C2007 numbers were, at this stage. I don't know why? but may be one reason being random "themes" that are forced upon and apathetic song selections. They are trying to sing the same songs as everyone sings ...and there are no striking out performances. I would think if they select more old songs (than just these new songs which are repeatedly sung) the contestants will get a lot of room to show their specialities.

Now only good news for Vaishali is that, this blog brings together some loyal fans
for Vaishali and her popularity is only on the rise, day by day (see the image below). We have about close to 500 returning visitors on the site. This is more than any fan club for any other contestants (on orkut) at least. And what is better is that many of the visitors on this blog are choosing to follow the voting link.
I hope Zee considers some of her popularity figures. Things are getting crucial now, and I feel Vaishali is at the maximum risk of being eliminated.
