The audience voted for Suhasi and Jaisheel instead and saved them from the danger zone, as they thought Karan’s dancing skills were not up to the mark

The battle on the sets of Nach Baliye 5 has heated up and shifted to a whole new level, as contestants who fall even a tad short of the audience expectations are shown the door. And this week, the jodi that had to bite the dust and leave the show was none other than Karan Mehra and Nisha Rawal.

The husband-wife duo was in the danger zone and pitted against Suhasi Goradia and Jaisheel Dhami, whom the audiences considered a far better pair. The decision drew a mixed response from the viewers, and the online junta quickly took to Twitter and blogs to speak out how they felt about the verdict. While some said that Karan and Nisha had given a number of weak performances and criticised Karan’s dancing skills, others were quite shocked. Fans felt that the couple had improved their act and also pointed out that only a few weeks ago choreographer Saroj Khan had given them Rs 101 for an absolutely rocking performance.

The pair, who had briefly been in danger zones before, tried rather hard to appeal to the audiences to vote for them, but we guess the best jodi prevailed! The remaining participants on the show who will be battling it out for the coveted trophy are – Sargun Mehta and Ravi Dubey, Mahii Vij and Jay Bhanushali, Suhasi and Jaisheel, and Neelu Vaghela and Arvind Kumar.

It remains to be seen whether Karan and Nisha will make a wild card entry, or was it the end of their journey on the popular dance show. We’re sure their fans are waiting with their fingers crossed. Well check out the episode this weekend to see just where exactly did the couple go wrong.
