The episode started off with Suresh Wadkar singing 'Sapne Main Milti Hai'. He got the audience on its feet and was soon joined by Runa Laila with her hit number 'Mera Babu Chhail Chhabeela'. Ayesha Takia couldn't help herself and joined them on stage with her thumkas!
The first performer was Yashraaj, who proved his 'Shikari' tag by singing Ghulam Ali's song 'Thodi Si Jo Pee Li Hai' with him in front of him in the jury. This risk paid off and he got wonderful comments, as well as a perfect 50!
Nabeel brought the house down with his 'Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani'! He got a standing ovation from Atif and Ismail, who loved his performance. Even Himesh couldn't help but praise him to the high heavens, saying that he reminded him of Kishore da. Needless to say, he got a 50!Missed his performance? Watch it here!
Next up was Budhaditya, who sang 'Jhoom Barabar Jhoom'. It was Atif and Abida Vs. everyone else during the verdict as Atif and Abida ji weren't too impressed with the performance. But Runaji thought it was a 'dhamaal' performance. He ended up getting a 30.
Ameer's choice of song was 'Badan Pe Sitaare Lapete Hue'. The performance was pretty energetic but surprisingly the judges weren't too happy. Suresh Wadkar observed that even fun songs should have 'sur' in them. The jury gave him a 20.
Aman doesn't need an excuse to be energetic. He sang 'Switty Switty' which was loved by the audience. But sadly, Atif and the jury thought that he was a little too loud to be melodious. He got a 10, which was one of Aman's lowest score.
Nadeem Abbas came out of his comfort zone and sang 'Masakkali'. But this didn't pay off as he got a 0. The jury thought that even though the masti was bang on, he was pretty weak when it came to sur. Tough luck Nadeem!Watch Nadeem's performance here.
Have you even seen Diljaan in such a good mood? He wowed one and all with 'Saawan Main Lag Gayi Aag'. Everyone had a great time during the song but Diljaan was disappointed with a score of 30. Abidaji and Ghulam Ali gave him a 0 while the rest of the jury praised him.Watch Diljaan's performance here!
Imraan put aside his reservations and sang 'Main Nikla Gaddi Leke' and won hearts with his rustic performance. The judges loved his performance and gave it a flawless 50!
India scored higher than Pakistan, allowing the team to choose a Daavedaar. Though Aman scored low in the episode, Himesh had full faith in him and made him the Davedaar for the finalist chair. All the best Aman!
