KATHMANDU — The Kathmandu District Court has issued an interim order to stop counting the votes received to choose the best singers in ‘Nepal Idol’.
A single bench of judge Bivakar Bhatta on Wednesday issued the order, said Spokesperson at the Kathmandu District Court, Krishna Prasad Nepal.
The order is to stop counting until September 8 of the popular Nepali reality show being aired in a television.
The court has called both the sides for a discussion on September 8 in the case.
Lawyers including Yagyamani Neupane had filed writ petition demanding scrapping of a decision taken by the show organisers to start re-voting without making any contestant, out of the four remaining contestants, out from the show.
Voting was opened from 8:45 pm to mid-night after the performance of the four contestants on August 31. Although 3.7 million votes were received during the period, none of the contestants was ousted from the programme held on September 1.Follow @gorkhapost
Ed Sheeran engaged to girlfriend Cherry Seaborn
LONDON — British Ed Sheeran has become engaged to his girlfriend Cherry Seaborn, the 26-year-old singer-songwriter announced on his Instagram page on Saturday. The proposal took place last month.
“Got myself a fiance just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well,” he told his 18 million followers on Instagram.
Sheeran is one of the best-selling artists in the world and his latest album ‘Divide’ smashed Spotify records, drawing 57 million listens on the first day of its release — nearly twice the previous highest.
Sheeran and Seaborn, who are childhood friends, have reportedly been dating since 2015.
“It’s awesome meeting famous people. But that’s not life. That’s not reality. One day this will end,” he told The Sunday Times newspaper last year.
“And I know the one person that’s going to remain constant is Cherry.”
After several years of playing on the street and in bars, Sheeran won breakthrough international success with his 2014 love ballad ‘Thinking Out Loud’.
According to the BBC, Sheeran and Seaborn, 24, met in high school in their native UK and have been dating for about three years. She attended Duke University in North Carolina, where she also played hockey. She later helped England’s U21 team win a bronze medal at the 2012 European Championships.
