The cut-throat competition with the challenger to add upon goes through an interesting twist as 8 wildcard entries are allowed to enter again on judge's demand.. The fortunate eight viz. Gitashree, Mansi, Abeer, Abhaas, Shailey, Jayant, Areeb and Abeer leave no stone unturned in mesmerizing the audience with their mellifluous voices. To add on to the celebrations, the top 5 contestants including the challenger tap their feet on to Allah Duhai, a dance track from RACE and were joined in by star cast Saif Ali Khan, Katrina Kaif, Sameera Reddy and Akshaye Khanna.

Gitashree made her comeback with Zindagi mein koi kabhi (Musafir) which was praised by all the judges and brought her their best wishes for the contest. Sameera Reddy along with Akshaye and Katrina were dazed on the emotional touch in Gitashree's voice at such a tender age. While on the other hand Saif's favourite Mansi sang Billo Rani and kissed Katrina and Sameera –her favorite actors. Shreya acclaimed her as the queen of expressions. Abeer sang Bardasht nahin kar sakta and was accompanied by Akshaye Khanna who danced and made a vote appeal for the 8 year old. It was hilarious to see Abeer proposing Katrina who was quite relieved for her future with Abeer after she heard him sing…!!!
