Indian Idol 9 is one of the most entertaining shows that is is being aired currently and we have to say that we absolutely love it. Not only do we love the new concept, but also the talented singers that the judges have chosen to battle it out for the ultimate Indian Idol title. The reinstatement of the original judges – Sonu Nigam, Farah Khan and Anu Malik is something that we appreciate too. However, it is the participants who have taken our breath away every weekend. The top 7 – LV Revanth, Malvika, Khuda Baksh, Mohit, Tajinder, PVNS Rohit and R P Shravan have been showcasing their fantastic talent on a regular basis, however today one contestant leaves the show!

But before that there is a twist in today’s episode. Melody queen Richa Sharma was the special guest on the show this time around and we all know what a phenomenal singer she is. So the contestants paid a special a tribute to her by singing her songs in the competition today. Overall, the show was a mesmerising experience with some outstanding performance. And by chance, if you missed the show, then here are all the key highlights:

# Richa Sharma took the stage up first and mesmerised the crowd with her magical voice. She sang a couple of songs with the contestants joining in later on. The judges praised her and asked her to join them. The hosts then call the first pair of contestants on to the stage.

# LV Revanth and Malvika took centre stage and sang Judaai from Jannat. And we have to say they completely mesmerised the crowd with their stunning performances. In fact, they impressed the judges so much that Sonu told that he felt he was in a concert. Farah Khan also mentioned how she felt she was watching a film. The hosts also revealed that both the contestants were safe according to last week’s scores and the votes they received.

# Next up were Khuda Baksh and Mohit Chopra, who set the stage on fire with their performance on Jag Soona Soona Lage from Om Shanti Om. According to us, both of them sang perfectly and the judges were impressed too. In fact, Farah was reminded about the time when she used to play this song to make Shah Rukh Khan emotional for a scene in their movie. But she wished that she could reshoot the whole song again with Khuda Baksh and Mohit’s voice. However, even after receiving great compliments, the hosts revealed that Mohit was in the bottom three according to last week’s scores and votes he received.

# Tajinder took the stage next and Malvika joined him. They sang Billo Rani from Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal and we have to say, we were taken aback. They put in a great performance. Their jugalbandi was out of this world and the judges also agreed on this. However, Tajinder also made it to the bottom three according to last week’s scores and the votes that he received.

# Later on, Malvika recalled how all the contestants met with cricketing maestro Sachin Tendulkar at Sonu’s party recently. Malvika mentioned how Sachin praised their performances and even clicked a picture with each one of them.

# Last but not the least was the jodi of PVNS Rohit and Shravan. They sang Sajdaa from My Name Is Khan and we have to say that this was by far the best of the evening. The judges also called it exceptional, however RP Shravan also made it to the bottom three according to last week’s scores and the votes that he received. But who will be leaving this show? Well, you have to wait for that. ALSO READ – Shahid Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut, Saif Ali Khan promote Rangoon on Indian Idol – view HQ pics

# Before the results, Richa requested Sonu and Anu to sing Main Hoon Na‘s title track. They put up a fantastic performance and it was a really an immersive and nostalgic experience for us.

At the end of the show, the hosts declared that Tajinder and Mohit are safe. That meant RP Shravan was eliminated from the show. Everyone was shocked, but the show goes on and tomorrow the top 6 will fight it out for the prestigious Indian Idol title.
