'The World's Best': Fans hail Dimash Kudaibergen's decision to quit as 13-year-old Lydian Nadhaswaram bags the title
Since its premiere in February, 'The World's Best' has introduced us to some truly amazing acts from all over the world. Every competitor had what it takes to win the title. But, sadly, the title could only go to one contestant.
After many auditions, battle rounds, and championship rounds, 'The World's Best' finally announced the winner who won a huge sum of a million dollars on Wednesday. The winner was none other than the young maestro Lydian Nadhaswaram. The news made many fans and viewers happy because the talented 13-year-old pianist was truly a well-deserved winner.

Though Nadhaswaram won the competition, there was one frontrunner who won the hearts of fans and judges alike: Dimash Kudaibergen. Almost everyone thought the title would go to Kudaibergen. And everyone was shocked when Kudaibergen revealed that he will be quitting the show during the Championship rounds. Kudaibergen decided to quit the show after he realized that he would be up against Daneliya Tuleshova and Nadhaswaram.
When the shocked judges asked him why he decided to quit the show, Kudaibergen revealed that, because he was up against two children, he wished to let them both advance.
And even though the three main judges tried their best to convince Kudaibergen to stay and compete, he did not. Even though Kudaibergen did not get enough support from the judges over his decision to quit, his fans showered him with all their love and support.
