Indian Idol 12 will be back tonight with a brand new episode, and things are getting more competitive as only as 8 contestants are remaining in the competition. The eight contestants are competing for the title, and each of them is singing their heart out to win the title. The promo videos already show that there will be an elimination this week, and the contestants who are nominated for elimination included Shanmukha Priya, Nihal Tauro, Mohd. Danish and Ashish Kulkarni.
Anjali Gaikwad was eliminated last week, and it was a controversial elimination as there was no elimination in Indian Idol 12 for a long time. Many people on social media were expecting Shanmukha Priya to get evicted, but Anjali Gaikwad was eliminated from the show with fewer votes in the end. Pawandeep Rajan scored maximum votes and was deemed as the last week’s best contestant.
The Indian Idol organizers came up with a unique system for season 12 termed power play, where all the contestants perform against each other without any elimination. Finally, the contestant with maximum points goes directly to the finale. The fans didn’t like this system as they wanted to see elimination, and they wanted to vote for their favorite contestant.
Aditya Narayan, the show’s host, had addressed the same, saying that it was a strategic decision taken by the crew (the makers) of Indian Idol 12. “As a music lover, I wouldn’t mind listening to the exceptionally talented contestants week after week. And the viewers who have enjoyed watching the show would also like to see the talented contestants perform. They are truly superb and hard-working. So, essentially, there won’t be any eliminations, and votes from all weeks will be counted cumulatively, and then the eliminations will happen. We are just a few more weeks away from the finale now,” he had said.
In tonight’s episode, the contestants will be performing Himesh Reshmiya’s hits, and Neha Kakkar’s sister Sonu Kakkar will be the special guest of this episode. Out of these eight contestants, who will be getting maximum votes, and who will get eliminated this week?
