Sony's Indian Idol
has never been bereft of drama, however, this week they have shot up their own standards for dramatic effect!

The show's highlight was that celebrities Ajay Devgn and Kangana Ranaut graced the stage. Kangana even did a mini-fashion walk with Salim Merchant as Bhoomi sang Marjawa, a song from the soundtrack of Fashion.Shivam performed on Aye dil hai mushkil, Rakesh sang Shola hai ya hai bijuria, Bhoomi sang Khallas, Swaroop sang Sapne mein milti hai and Sreeram sang Pee loon.

As the show progressed Rakesh and Swaroop landed in the bottom two positions out of which Rakesh got eliminated. However, the judges felt strongly about Rakesh and used their veto power to save him. So that closed this week's episode without any elimination. How sweet is that?!

For the uninitiated, Anu Malik, during the start of this season of Indian Idol, had a huge tiff with the channel people over the issue of veto power to the judges. He felt good talent got wasted away due to junta's votes. Eventually the channel people budged and granted veto power to the judges.

Looks like Anu Malik's efforts have finally paid off!

"Sreeram is a fulltime playback singer in south and sung for more then 20 South movies, had already taken part in many reality shows including star voice of India, had done countless concerts in India and also three INTERNATIONAL concerts in three different countries of the world, has sung countless jingles on Tv and is professionally trained for the last 18 years,

Don't u think isn't it unfair with the totally raw and amateur singers like Rakesh, and Shivam etc who dont even have any formal training in music, to allow fulltime professional playback singers like Sreeram to compete with them?"

In that case, Sonu Nigam, Shaan and Sreya Ghosal should also be allowed to take part in the competition.

LITTLE COMMENT OF TOP 5 SINGERSIf anyone want to hear pure 100% natural voice song then vote for swaroop, if any one want to hear 100% copier piracy song of any original song in original voice then vote for sreeram, if anyone want to hear 100% sexy rock song vote for voomi, if anyone want to hear 100% different than the original song voice then vote for shivam and if anyone always want to hear 100%soft range voice song then vote for rakesh , now choice is YOURS>>>>>>>

At this stage of Top 5 all are equally good. But one should be eliminated in every step to reach Top2. What if Sriram or shivam gets eliminated in next step? So, the elimination should let go as it is going.. All these dramas show the powers of judges..that's all.

It was a scripted episode, if veto power would have used during Shashi, Arpita or Naushad than it could have been justified. Veto power used during top 5, when all are good looks scripted and hopeless. On one hand they say Amirkhan had told not to eliminate anyone in "All is Well episode", on other hand judges says they have used veto power at right time. Everything looks drama. Like all others reality show this also is scripted and making people fool.
