X Factor: Folk, rock and item songs rolled into one

The three judges have the difficult task of comparing performances in different genres

Sonu Niigaam, Shreya Ghoshal and Sanjay Leela Bhansali have been working hard with their contestants, and with eliminations already begun, the competition is really heating up. Tonight things will come to a head when all the remaining contestants will perform songs of different genres. Sonu’s team will belt out rock ‘n’ roll numbers, while Sanjay’s groups render melodious folk songs. Shreya’s team will go where even Shreya has gone few times – they will perform sizzling item songs. With all these different genres coming together, it’s going to be one power-packed episode. But is it possible to compare a rock singer with a folk singer or an item song singer? And who will be the most impressive?
