By Hindustan Times

Mumbai, July 6 -- Lata Mangeshkar was stumped by the performances of the young singers on Zee TV's Sa Re Ga Ma Pa L'il Champs 2011. Interestingly, the veteran singer happened to watch an episode where two contestants sang the song 'Man kyon behka aadhi raat ko...'. This duet was originally sung by Lata and Asha Bhosle for the 1984 film Utsav.

In the episode, Alka Yagnik, one of the judges had wished for Lata to watch it. "I saw L'il Champs on TV today and I was stunned with the voices and performances of some very young, and little older children on the show. They sing in tune and seem so prepared at such tender ages. I congratulate and give them all my blessings. I wish them the best and hope that they continue to sing this well and make a mark for themselves in the world of music," Lata had tweeted.
