This is one of the most entertaining episodes of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 9 so far. The reason being the theme. Yes, it was 90s special and the songs were some of our favourites. Moroccan born Nora Fatehi performed with Cornel Rodrigues on Chura Ke Dil Mera and looked super hot in a pair of denims and white top. The judges liked her performance. Farah Khan was in a critical mode and everyone was judged with a sharp eye. Spandan Chaturvedi's Nimbooda act was much loved by everyone. The girl brought in a lot of energy in her act and everyone was bowled over by her cuteness. The ending were Spandan dropped the nimboo and gave a cute expression was loved by all.
Siddharth Nigam who has been topping the scores since two weeks had a rough time. He danced on Breathless with Vaishnavi and judges were a little upset about a few things. They felt the dance needed more energy and pointed out that he did not lip sync the song. Sid felt a little depressed but cheered up soon after.
One of the highlights of the evening was Karishma Tanna's waltz on Tujhe Dekha Toh from Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge along with Rajit Dev. The two looked like a dream and judges love the grace and beauty that they brought in the iconic song. The judges loved the half spin that Karishma did in the act. It was followed by a Broadway dance on the song Khambe Jaisi from the hit flick, Khiladi by Shantanu Maheshwari and Alisha Singh. The judges liked his performance but Farah Khan pointed out the flaws in Shantanu's tap dancing, which he admitted.
Manish Paul also got Jacqueline Fernandez on the segway and did Tujhe Dekha Toh and grooved for Farah Khan on Tumse Dekhke Pyaar Hua much to her delight. The surprise package for tonight was Shakti Arora. His choreographer Suchitra Sawant made him dance on Ole Ole and the judges were happy. They said today's performance reflected the true journey of a non-dancer to a dancer. Shakti said the barrage of low scores had affected his zeal and the encouragement gave him new hope.
Gracy Goswami jived on Gopala Gopala but the judges were not too impressed. However, Swasti Nitya and Preetjot who did a combo of Odisi and semi-classical were unanimously loved by everyone. The kids were elated by the compliments that came in their way.
Choreographer Salman Yusuff Khan who is participating as a contestant this season is a worried man. He has not got a single perfect 30 so far on the show. Today, he did a aerial act with Aishwarya Radhakrishnan. He had a heart attack when Farah Khan said I did not like it but got a breather when she said that she loved it. Jacqueline said his performance was of an international level. Karan Johar also reiterated that the expectations from him were high and today he was quite brilliant. It was finally a perfect 30 for Salman and he was indeed emotional. He said how the Jhalak platform meant a lot for him. Salman said he is giving 100 per cent to the show. He was also adjudged as the superstar of the week.
The three contestants in the risk zone are Nora Fatehi, Gracy Goswami and Siddharth Nigam. Gracy Goswami is eliminated.
