James Corden produced and hosted talent show The Worlds' Best aired its finale on Wednesday night and Lydian Nathaswaram, the 13 year old piano prodigy from Chennai ended up taking home the Season 1 winner crown and a prize money of 1 Million dollars!
Lydian faced off three other acts in the final round and finished topping South Korea’s Kukkiwon for the winner's spot. Since Lydian is one of the talents being nurtured at A.R. Rahman's KM music conservatory, he was given a warm welcome at the music school in the presence of the Mozart of Madras himself.
Rahman who has been a constant source of encouragement ever since Lydian entered the show, also shared a video of the two enjoying music on his twitter space.
