Farah Khan, Anu Malik and Sonu Nigam’s Indian Idol 9 is one of the shows that we love. Not only do we have some talented singers in the competition, but the format of the show is also really cool. The reinstatement of the original judges is also something that we appreciate, but it is the top 6 singers – PVNS Rohit, Mohit, Khuda Baksha, Tajinder, Malvika and LV Revanth who have stolen their thunder. Week after week, the singers have impressed us and today again, they did the same. However, it was not just us but Govinda too, who was spellbound by these marvellous singers. For those of you who missed the show, don’t worry coz we have you covered. Today was the gala round, where each and every singer performed on a song. Here are all the highlights from tonight’s episode:
# Govinda hit the stage first and performed a stunning act on the title track of his upcoming movie – Aa Gaya Hero. The judges welcomed the star and told him to join them. ALSO READ – Indian Idol 9: R P Shravan is eliminated from Sonu Nigam, Farah Khan and Anu Malik’s show
# The hosts started off the show and called the first contestant. First up was PVNS Rohit who sang Badtameez Dil from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. Mid way through the performance, he changed it to Badan Pe Sitare from Prince and we have to say the transition was really amazing. He sang both the songs well and the judges were impressed with Rohit’s immense growth.
# Mohit took the stage next and sang Maa Da Ladla from Dostana. The Delhi lad sang it with a lot of energy and mesmerised the crowd with his performance.
# Next up was LV Revanth who sang Palat – Tera Hero Idhar Hai from Main Tera Hero. His fiery performance set the stage on fire and left Govinda speechless.
# After that, Tajinder took centre stage and sang Aake Seedhi Lagi Dil Pe from Half Ticket. He alternated between two different scales and voices during the song and we have to say that he did it with a lot of conviction. His act was so captivating that he got a round of applause from everyone.
# Khuda Baksh took the stage next and immediately surprised everyone with his performance on Humka Peeni Hai from Dabangg. His melodious voice gave us an experience of a lifetime and the judges gave him a standing ovation.
# After a while, host Paritosh Tripathi paid a tribute to Govinda, but broke down while praising the star. This was a heartwarming moment which left everyone surprised. The actor went up to him, hugged him and told him never to lose hope. Anu Malik joined them a while later and told them to lighten up the mood with a dance on Aa Gaya Hero‘s title track.
# Malvika arrived on stage next. She took the mic and sang Mera Naam Chin Chin Choo. Her tune, her voice and her act was perfect and the judges could not stop praising her. It was absolutely marvellous. ALSO READ – Shahid Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut, Saif Ali Khan promote Rangoon on Indian Idol – view HQ pics
