The competition is cutthroat now. Tension was in the air. Faces were reflecting fear and anticipation. Will they make it? Or not? The ‘Indian Idol’ gala round began with some flawless performances. But strangely some of the best singers couldn’t deliver their best. The judges were nearly at war. Their opinions differed. Their words clashed. While Javed kept on backing Anu Maliik, Alisha was left all alone to fight for herself. Udit was the smartest of the lot. He simply refused to open his mouth.
Richa's performance could not satisfy the judges as usual except Alisha who thinks she is a rocking singer. All the judges realised her voice is still not matured for a playback singer. Bhartiya Janta also agreed with the judges and they voted her out.
