CHURUMURI POLL: Finest non-Kannada singer?

Yesterday was Kishore Kumar‘s 80th birthday, and this number from Kulla Agent 000 is his only Kannada number. (At least the only one we know of.)

But, given the profusion of outside singers in Sandalwood today, the birthday provides a good opportunity to poll the best non-Kannada singer in Kannada filmdom.

Is S.P. Balasubrahmanyam tops? Where does the new crop of Udit Narayan, Kunal Ganjawala and Sonu Nigam figure? Can K.S. Chitra, Shreya Ghoshal and Sunidhi Chauhan ever match P. Susheela and S. Janaki?
