In today’s episode (Saturday, 26th May) the rest of the contestants will be performing and two contestants will be eliminated. Also this is Ashaji’s last episode as Maha Guru and also last episode of Round One. Watch video of this episode here
The episode starts with the performance of Aditya, Nirupama and Sikander on the song Rock n Roll soniye from KANK. Aditya then greets the audience and says “Guru have
always been with the contestants and their blessings are there with them”
Himesh’s AV is shown where he says he had to go for Aap ka suroor shooting for two days and will be not be available for this episode. Ashaji then says he has gone but left the soul in the cap which she gives it to Shekhar. Shekhar comes gets Ashaji’s blessings and gets the cap.. He keeps the cap in front in the table and says “Jai matadi lets rock”
First Gharana to perform – Bappida’s Josh Gharana:
Reecha Tripathi (India) performs Na re saiyaan ko chodke na ja.
ID – very good improvement
Shekhar – Tries to imitate Himesh, Aashique banaya aapne song is played in the background when he tries to imitate.. He holds the mike in Himesh style.. then says – “I will be back to original” and says – It was tremondous improvement
Vishal – Gaane mein kami thi, Could have done better..
Bappida – Good improvement
Ashaji – before Reecha’s performance, she says be confident and just involve Your self in the song and after performance she says, you kept my advice with you while singing.
Next to perform – Ismail Darbar’s Yalgaar Gharana:
Wasi Efandi (Pakistan) sings Lagan lagan lag gayi hain tujhse meri lagan lagi
Vishal - Wasi is good singer, but today was not his best.. Jothi is not getting involved in song
Shekhar – There was no throw in the song.. Bahut dabi dabi si gaati hain aap
Bappida - You are not singing with a feel.. For Wasi he says he has to still improve
ID - You have performed in same way like I expected.. Will take Jothi far and in 4 years will make her a star..
Ashaji then tells to Jothi how to sing.. She says you are not giving the throw, no feeling at all.. She says the same lyrics you can sing in anyway.. You can make it sad, romantic or Cabaret..
For each one of them she gives an example of how to sing.. Then Jothi requests that she will sing again.. Vishal objects that judgement should be based on previous performance.. Ashaji says, this is only to make her understand the mistake.. Then Jothi again sings and she was better this time.. ID and everyone enjoy her performance.. Shekhar says in just 4 minutes, there is a tremendous improvement.. ID says, this world is round and will take time to come around this world that is why i said 4 years.. I will make her great star.. Ashaji says, no one makes anyone star.. God makes the person a star and sends..
Next to perform – Vishal Shekhar’s Hit IT Gharana:
Imran Aslam (South Africa) sings tere naam humne kiya hain
Sarika Singh (India) sings Behka hain mann kahiin
Vishal – Sarika performed very well.. May be the style which Sunidhi took, the same you had taken – so a little bit of out of sur.. otherwise it was fine.. Says VS both are happy to have her in the gharana.. Though Shekhar is now in place of Himesh, he is happy.. Shekhar then wears the cap of Himesh and then takes out and says he is proud of her.. For Imran they both are disappointed and Vishal says probably he is out of the contest
Bappida – Sarika was really good..
ID – Howmuch ever well she cooks, she is that good singer.. Vishal objects saying he has not yet had the food, ID says he had it and it came to him
Ashaji – Sarika because of singing in one style, she lost the actual throw in the song..
Next to perform – Himesh Reshammiya’s Rock Gharana:
Joy Chakrabory (India) sings oh humdum suniyo re
Vishal – sings the song in different style and says the energy you needed, you have provided..
ID – you are great performer
Bappida – If i get a chance, will make you to sing in anyone film of mine
Shekhar – Great performance.. Himesh would be happy..
Ashaji says she is very happy and she was dancing while he sang.. Shekhar says if Himesh was here, he would have said – “Tumhe roti zaroor milegi” Ashaji also says it along with shekhar
Imran is out among boys.. He sings Pardesi pardesi jaana nahin while leaving.. Shekhar says he will come back with a bang
Farewell for Ashaji
Aditya gets the farmaan from Ashaji and calls her on stage.. All the mentors also come on to the stage to give the farewell for Ashaji..
ID sings Hum dil de chuke sanam.. VS sings the song for which they got the RD Burman award and that was dil ne tumko chunliya hain.. Bappida sings Asha didi we love you.. Ashaji then sings mere sona re sona for all and leaves the stage..
Among girls Sarika is out and all the mentors are against the judgement.. VS say she is much better singer but do not agree with judgement and that its wrong.. ID and Bappida too agree with this that it was wrong judgement..
Sarika is upset and gets unconscious.. She is then carried by all of them away from the stage…We hope she will get well soon
