Mumbai: He came, danced, cheered and even played a fun round of his upcoming quiz show `Kaun Banega Crorepati 4` - Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, also fondly called Big B, made the finale of popular music reality show `Indian Idol 5` even bigger with his presence.

The 67-year-old received a warm welcome from all three finalists - Sreeram Chandra, Rakesh Maini and Bhoomi Trivedi as they belted out some of his well-known songs. When Amitabh stepped on to the `Indian Idol` stage, he was sporting enough to shake a leg on "Say Shava Shava" from his film `Kabhie Khushi Kabhi Gham`.

Dressed in a formal suit, Amitabh praised the show, and said that he is a regular viewer. He made it a point to mention that his wife, veteran actress Jaya Bachchan is a big fan of the show too, and that they try not missing a single episode.

The finalists were elated with his presence and his benevolence to share the stage with them, as were the show`s judges - Annu Malek, Salim Merchant and Sunidhi Chauhan.

Amitabh even decided to play a random round of 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' (KBC) with the finalists, whereby he asked all three of them to test his knowledge about `Indian Idol`.

Amitabh was invited to award the winner Sreeram. His show KBC will go on air in October.
