Deepali kickstarts the show with Dhol bajne Laga song on which Annu Malek pronounced her a worthy contender of the title. Anil Kapoor confessed he got gooseflesh with Amit Paul's rendition of Yeh jo des hai mera from Swades. Chang, who has been nicknamed Chingu Mingu by Alisha, won her heart with Baar baar haan … from Lagaan. Incidentally, Chang had an opportunity to visit an NGO and teach the little inmates the importance of dental care how to brush their teeth right! Emon once again rocked the show with his flawless performance. He sang Yehi rasta hai tera from Lakshya making it very clear to his competition that he means business. Annu Malik who is always full praise for Emon commented him as a hallmark of a great singer. Anil Kapoor gave full marks to Ankita for her rendition of the title track of Phir bhi dil hai Hindustani. The stage shy Anil Kapoor was not too happy to be called on stage to shake a leg with Anky Baby. But the show stealer was Prashant whose Zindagi maut na ban jaaye came straight from the heart and Annu Malik doffing his hat to the best performer of the day.
