Kanmani Madhanraj - Co Congeniality Award

People's Choice Award

1.What is the funniest thing you remember as a child?
The funniest thing I believed in as a child was that teachers lived at school. I thought they had secret bedrooms that only they had access to, and just never had to leave. I thought this because teachers were always there before we got to school, and they always stayed back late, even after you left.

2.What is the one piece of clothing you wish you owned?
Talent of being good at art! I had a love of art and took classes when I was younger. I enjoyed creating art with oil and chalk pastels, whether it was a nighttime sunset on the river bank, a dimensional apple, or something different. But, I slowly lost interest and never got to master the beauty of art. One day I'm hopeful that I will be able to reignite that love!

3.What season of the year is your favorite and why?
Other than family, my biggest supporter is my unofficial big brother, Uday. We connected like siblings; as he not only helps me professionally with my vocal training, but he also supports me in my personal development. Uday encourages and motivates me in my studies, and shares his input with my career path. He helps me not get overwhelmed with so many things that I enjoy doing like dance and music. He's truly a big supporter!

4.What is your favorite movie?
The best costume I’ve worn for Halloween was when I dressed up as Hermione Granger. I dressed up as her two years in a row, because I was so obsessed with how good the costume looked. I wore a long gryffindor robe with a gray polo. I even had a wand that I got from Universal Studios, where I also got my robe.

5.What song makes you think of yourself?
The song that makes me 100% of the time want to dance is Hot N Cold by Katie Perry. I love this song because it not only has catchy lyrics, but also has a great combination of both upbeat and slow melodies. It was on the Top 40's Billboard list and an international hit. It's no wonder I’m so drawn to this song!
