The finals consisted of a competitive match between Saisharan's Symphony Super Kings team and Pooja's Harmony Heartbreakers team.

Super Singer T20 Season 2[edit]

Season 2 of the show was powered by AVR Swarna Mahal Jewellery & PRAN Litchi Drink. Bharti Airtel did not return as sponsors of the show.

Show format[edit]

Each match consisted of a competition between two of the teams for the season. A match could be telecast over two or three episodes, and would require the teams to perform songs of a particular pre-selected theme.

Prior to the commencement of a match, a coin is tossed. The team who wins the coin toss will elect whether to perform first or second. The team's captains also would select in advance which performance from their team they believed was a jackpot performance.

Various solo and duet performances are given during each match, sometimes accompanied by other team members providing sound effects or chorus portions. The match concludes after the teams complete their group performances. Performances are scored after each category of performance is complete. The team who accumulates the highest score from each performance wins the match.

Each team competes against each other before the four top-scoring teams move through to the semi finals, while the two lowest-scoring teams are eliminated. Two teams eventually move to the finals.[1][2]
