Torsha is the person to be eliminated, now the final sprint is between Sourabhee and Kapil. So the top 11 got it right. Ultimately Sonali announced the first result of the night.
A few moments back.....
Katrina makes an entry in your Pink dress along with John and Neel, The Stars of New York. The winner should be announced anytime soon. Though Katrina is on the stage, but Sonali with a saree is still the best looking female. Sorry Katrina fans...
For the records John was there for the last Idol final also and he goes on to say that he is lcuky for the person he is paired, this time he was paired with Sourabhee... Humm..
