Indian Idol 3, 8th June 07: Final battle for the Galas

“If the necklace of pearl got broken then only pearl would be coming out.”

It was the line to start the show and I am thinking that this line was to be saved for later rounds, but anyway.

After today, only six boys will be remained in rounds. I am worried for Suhit, I want him to be in at least. Also my good list is open for Abhishek, Prashant, Chang, Parleen and Bhavin. Emon must be in, but I am unable to find one to loose on cost of whom Suhit could stay in.

Jaaved Ji: Suhit, Rehaan and Chang.

Alisha: Suhit, Rehaan and Prashant.

Udit Ji: Suhit, Rehaan and Amit.

Anu Ji: I liked that you praised Suhit and said that he was never out of sur in that song. Thanks Anu Ji. Must praise for Bhavin from his side and he was absolutely fine. His list was comprising Chang, Amit and Rehaan.

So, Judges were given verdict against Suhit and Rehaan. Now it was up to boys and their choices were Suhit, Rehaan and Chang.


Rehaan was told to be in last four. Then Emon got to know that he is safe. Then as a surprise, the verdict came in favour of Suhit. I am much happy over it and worried too as rules of reality shows are not going in favour of Suhit. Anyway, next one for bottom four was Amit and for everyone’s surprise, here comes the name of Bhavin in bottom four. Chang and Parleen were declared safe. Then Abhishek was declared to be safe.

So, the bottom four was:

Bhavin, Prashant, Amit and Rehaan.

Jaaved Sir was surprised over the name of Prashant only and Alisha was surprised with the name of Bhavin. For me, it was a tie between Bhavin and Prashant and finally Prashant made it. But I know that Bhavin will get a wild card entry later. I am too sure about it as Judges are in much favour of him. Although I was not happy to loose Amit, he was having much potential, but competition was tough for sure.

Abhishek was crying for Bhavin, don’t worry Abhishek, he will be back to be competitor of yours.


“If you will make a right choice, then you will get to hear right tunes.”

This was the punch line to start the performances …

Emon: “Tujhe Lage Na Najariya” Again Sonu Nigam look-a-like made the tunes with the same. I must say that it was a fine knock. Right energy, right tunes and right nodes. Alisha added that he must find his own identity rather than being another Sonu. Anu was praising him a lot.

    Minni asked that how many of Judges see him in top 5? Udit and Alisha both were of the faouring tunes, but Jaaved Ji added that the same depends on other’s performances as well, so he can’t make a comment right now.

    The conversation ended with a few funny notes with humorous Jaaved Ji pulling legs of Emon.


Charu: “Ruk Jaa Raat” This much sweet girl and such a serious choice. Charu, Charu, Charu; I must say, I am impressed. I am impressed with your versatility. I like the feel inside the song, voice quality was tremendous. I liked, I liked and I liked, what else you need from me? You got my heart today. No matter what Judges going to say.

    Jaaved Ji was quite happy over her performance. Udit Ji said somewhere she missed a few things but overall it was nice. Alisha was in favour. So, she is rocking and must be in final rounds.


Smita: “It’s the time to Disco” Somewhere she was not in right tune for me. I am not saying this because of her performance or looks as I heard the song only keeping the video minimized. She tried to touch the right nodes at some places, but I am not happy. Jaaved Ji said that it was not her forte but she performed nicely. I should say that I am not impressed at all.

    Sony people called her parents on the floor and it made a emotional note for the show. Even she and her father performed for a few lines. Yeah!! Such tricks work well for reality shows and I know; now your place in finals is ensured, but it was trump card and you lost it before the finals. You are not going to make it longer in anyway for sure. Sorry for being rude.


Parleen: “Tanha Tanha Duri” Much being said over his looks, but the boy has a nice voice and tune too. He will get his ways in this shows even if not the title.

    Jaaved Sir was quite happy and expressed himself with the words that what he saw in him at the first sight, he got that back today. Alisha said he need to maintain the same and Udit Ji .. Udit Ji seems to be in love with his looks and personality.


Deepali: “Dheeme Dheeme Gaoon” After “Nisha” kind of performance, everyone is looking for her and she was right when said that now people will find mistakes in place of finding good things in song.

My comment … somehow you were not able to live up to the expectations. Udit Ji added the right thing with saying that competition is tough now and she needs to be careful everytime. Although she said that it’s not an excuse, but her throat was not fine. Jaaved Ji was in much favour of her.

In next, it was her performance as an RJ on request of Minni. I think this performance was more confident than her singing. Anyway, better luck next time. I am rude about judging this time na … sorry I am trying to be a bit balanced and straight.


Suhit: “Saiyon Ni” The Heavy Metal Rocker, could he make it to the finals… at this point equations are against him.

    As about song, then it was the best choice to make a comeback, but Suhit, you spoiled the best chance of your life. Your voice was terrible at high nodes, I am not happy. Jaaved Ji said he is happy and Alisha said you need to work over pitching. Udit Ji wished a good luck to him.

    So, it’s a 3/3, but I know… you are in danger, not because of song only, but because of equations, for breaking them, you were needed to be outstanding today, but you were not.


Abhishek: “Ab Mujhe Raat Din” When you started the song, then I was scared a bit as this song was one of my favourite and coping up with my expectations was not that easy as Sonu Nigam really have done a nice job with this song. But you made it man… you made it.

    Alisha was making him in top 5; Jaaved Ji said he is in Gala. Udit Ji asked that why he changed the nodes a bit lower? He said that h fear about a few things. Udit Ji requested him to sing in right tunes means in original high tunes. He did that and Jaaved Ji found him more better and sparkling in the same, although Alisha said the voice was straining this time as was fear of Abhishek himself.

    After this, Abhishek presented a dance over Udit Ji’s voice and sure he seemed to be a rocker. I would like to see him more and more.


Prashant: “Kehna Hai” The policeman seemed to stepping up slowly. You surprised me with your voice quality this time. You even crossed Chang. This time your voice was having that feel of relaxation. I don’t say that it was a flawless one but the flaw was very minute. Jaaved Ji praised him and Alisha said he lost sur at some places. Udit Ji said he has a lot of expectations and last day, he was better than today.

    Minni made the right comment saying that why that excitement from Judges voice was missing while judging him, which she and whole public feels.


Pooja: “Sajanaa Aa Bhi Jaa” I should say, why her expression are always off key. I am not talking about singing and performance, but before that when camera rolls over you. Why can’t you be just a little girl than behaving like stars or much intense person from even the beginning? Be relaxed and cool.

    You lost something even from the start of the song and after that I lost the interest. I have heard the original and it was one of favourite, when I heard that. It was not that. Although Udit Ji and Alisha praised her, but I got impressed with Jaaved Ji’s eyes, when he said it was her weakest performance ever for the show.


Meiyang Chang: “Dil Keh Raha Hai” Sure as Alisha said… he was in mood today. Jaaved Ji said although he prefers slower songs over him, but it was quite competitive. Udit Ji also added praising statements.

    Minni asked him to sing something in Chinese and as I expected, he doesn’t know much of Chinese and in fact nothing. Anyway , you are favourite and will be, but could you make it till the last knock.


Richa: “Piya Tose Naina Lage” Some people might be disagreeing with me, if I go harsh over her, but she doesn’t stand a place here. The voice was lazy kind of… she was never there.

    Jaaved Ji said it’s a childish singing and not of Indian Idol singing. He said after a few years, she might be a good singer, but she is not right now. Alisha said she is not taking it seriously. After these comments she started crying, so Udit Ji comments were of no matter.

    As about age factor, then I would like to ask all persons, tell me… have not you all heard Sa Re Ga Ma Kids? Weren’t they able to sing more better than seniors? Richa!! You stand with no excuse and you have to go.


Ankita: “Aisa Jaadoo Dala Re” For her I am enough confident that she will make it for finals. But its not like that her performance was up to the mark. She was loosing the momentum today on high nodes, which has been her forte… it was not like “Who Ajnabi”. So, I am not happy. Jaaved Ji praised her, but I am not agreeing with him this time. Udit Ji said performance was nice, but she was not clicking well over low nodes.

    Probably, the personal problem with other girls is making her weaker even in her forte. This performance was weakest in all of her performance, I have seen. But based on her all the performances, she stands for a place in final Galas.
