Comments from VS:
Shekhar to Harpreet – You have become a rockstar.. You are performing as well as singing well..
Junaid – Anthra was good.. But the Mukhda was not that great.. You need to look Harpreet for inspiration..
Raja – the lyrics you write in hand so you can read it when you forget – Avoid doing it.. You have a powerful voice.. Just now was saying Bappida that this industry has got one new voice today..
Vishal to Junaid – It was looking as if you are depressed.. Think this also as your own home and put in the energy.. Im concentrating on you because you are a great singer..
To Raja – We were the one to bring the versatility issue everytime.. Now even you have to come out of Kailash and Sukhwinder songs and sing other songs to become a mainstream singer

His dad comes in car to meet him as he was unable to wait for him at home.. He receives a grand welcome.. There is lot of lighting and fireworks.. His performance is shown in large screen..

He meets his sister who is a spastic child and says he had to climb from his neighbour’s top floor to come and meet her as the fans were not allowing him to come out..
He says I have struggled a lot.. Please pray that I should not make any mistake.. I am a bhulakkad no,. 1.. Vishal says we all are musicians and we can also forget things.. Dont worry, just leave it to god..

Aditya announes that this time Raja has got the highest votes and gives him the watch.. Mauli is the first in international votes..
Results of Rock Gharana:
Mussarat sings chakna chakna from Namaste London
Aneek sings Shakalaka Boom Boom title song
Comments from Himesh:
These two songs are sung by me and it is very difficult to sing songs that are made for a particular singer and particular style.. But they both have done a great job.. So, request public to keep supporting them..
Aneek’s previous performance is shown.. Aditya also announces that he is no.2 this week and also that he is only 500 votes behind from Raja.. Himesh says Raja has a big fan following him and competing with such fentabulous singer is very tough.. You also try to make your fan base strong.. Learn his good qualities from him.. Aneek says he not only learns from Raja bhaiyah, but also Amanat and Mussarat.. He says today is Mussarat’s birthday..
Lets all wish him Happy Birthday – Happy Birthday Mussarat
Himesh then asks what do you learn from Amanat?? only music or something else also? Then he asks what is happening with that person? He asks who? Himesh says – dont act too innocent.. Then Aneek says my love is music and i am here to concentrate on that.. Promise that there is no other issue.. They show Sumedha for a moment though
Mussarat’s previous performance is shown.. He gets yellow.. He says whatever public has decided I will accept.. They have given lot of love and affection.. I am so happy.. Vishal says – You have good spirit..
Results of Yalgaar Gharana:
Ismailji – Poonam is a very good singer who tries to sing all genre songs.. But you have to improve a lot to win this competition.. Amanat is not a performer because he is very shy.. Dont know for what reason you are afraid.. Dont be and sing without fear.. There is something to say, which I will say later on..
Poonam – gets green
Amanat – gets yellow..
All the contestant in yellow room are called on stage.. Aditya asks Ismailji to comment on this.. He asks if they had refused to sing Indian Patriotic song.. All the three refuse that they have never said this.. Always they wanted to only spread peace all over the country and never felt they are there in some other country as they have got so much love and affection..
Amanat says – they will never think of saying something like this
Mussarat – we have come hear to sing and we thought we will sing for other people..
Junaid – There is so much in the media, in the news channel – in the newspapers that we refused to sing.. But it is not like this.. We got so much love that we never missed the hometown but for the past two days we are missing them..
Aditya says – this news was spread only by some Indian or Pakistani who does not want that there be any friendship between the countries..
Junaid says – If someone feels that because of them some kind of hatred is being spread – then we will go back now itself..
All the contestants are crying a lot.. Everyone are sad.. The whole set is standstill..
Then a message comes – To Be Continued……….
So, the results will be out only tomorrow
