This week there will be a huge surprise for Indian Idol 5 contestants. It is becoming a trend of sorts when the most deserving candidates end up with minimum votes. So after watching Sreeram and Shivam in the bottom two everyone felt once again either of them would probably have to pay the price for the junta's decision.

Our source from the show says, "This week Hema Malini was the only guest on the show for the Monday episode and all contestants sang her songs. Shivam and Sreeram were shocked to find themselves in the danger zone. There was tension on the set when their names were announced. But in the end it was declared there won’t be any elimination this week and Sreeram as well as Shivam were in fact the top vote gainers. From next week the eliminations based on public voting will start again."

Meanwhile next week, Salman Khan will be the special guest. After next week's elimination there would be a wild card entry round where in all seven contestants will perform and only one of them will return to the show.
