Rakesh Maini Eliminated – Indian Idol 5 20th July

by Baba

Hello Folks

Yes, one of the best singer who was expected to be Indian idol 5 is eliminated today. Rakesh Maini, despite of being of the best singer who sings with feelings, can sing versatile songs will not be in Indian Idol 5 anymore. Well, i was basically expecting Swaroop and Bhoomi to be in danger zone but Bhoomi was safe and Swaroop didn’t get eliminated. I am pretty sure that Judges will use the power to bring Rakesh Back in the show. Or they are waiting for finale ? Lets see what will they do.

For now, you just watch the video of elimination, the shocking faces and all.

Last week the decision was very very fair and Tia Kar was eliminated but today, Rakesh Maini ? Well well, its okii because one has to leave. Bhoomi is the only remaining girl contestant so its good to know that she is safe. The show would be poor without having any girl contestant. However, if we compare singing then she is poor than Rakesh. Swaroop has good good votes because of his style and also he is simple guy.

Best of luck lover boy Rakesh Maini, Enjoy yourself. Just Chill. Because judges have used the power and retained Rakesh !  But Rakesh, may be you will be eliminated next week ? Pussycat Pussycat

sreeram ji aap toh indian idol ke shan ho.aap ki singing bahot hi achhi aur manmohak hai aap bas isi taraha gate jaao janta aapke saath hai. -nepal

thanx Anu Sir, Sunidhi Mam, Salim sir,

mai tahe dil se aap ko dhanyvad karna chahti hu kyoki aap ne ek aise contestant ko bachaya hi jo ki indian idol 5 ka hakdar hai ,Aur es samay rakesh ka eliminate hona bahut hi wrong hai kyoki agar hum elimnesion ki baat kare to pahle swaroop ,bhoomi ,shiwam ka serial by number aata hi becouse Rakesh is a very good singar & i think only sreeram can bet him. aur mai Rakesh ji ko ek baat kahna chahungi ki jo power jugs ne aap ke lie use ki hi uspe khara utrna & i know that u can do this.
thanx again
oll is well Rakesh

Alls are best but Shreeram Should be, He is XLNT.

I heard him in VOI first.


NaumaN July 21, 2010 at 3:56 am


BHOOMIs personality may be the + point,
She got the edge, She can be too.
My best wishes for you.

God Bless You.


anuj July 21, 2010 at 5:24 am

bhoomi should be there in final 3.and every week on has to be elminated .its really tough for the judges and the janta to decide who is the best.as all r really good singers


anil July 21, 2010 at 6:55 am

very good one bad singer out now i want bhoomi out next weak


Suresh Thakur July 21, 2010 at 9:38 am

An excellent and most appropriate use of veto by the judges. Rakesh is an execeptional singer and is fit to be in top two with Sreeram .
The next elimination in order is Swaroop for a limited range , next Bhoomi followed by Shivam .
Best of luck Rakesh be confident forget the past and perform with new vigour and zeal.
God bless you


Dominik July 21, 2010 at 10:35 am

I really feel bad : why didn’t the judges retain Naushad who is so much talented (much more than Rakesh) and deserved to be in Top 3 ? Their decision about Rakesh is totally unfair.


Sanam Yesh July 21, 2010 at 11:01 am

Rakesh eliminated, very nice decission of people watching Indian Idol 5.
Any one of four remaining young people are capable to become Indian Idol 5.
I think Bhumi will win the long race.


NaumaN July 22, 2010 at 2:27 am

hi all

m 100% agree with suresh. but shreeram should be.


Rishi July 22, 2010 at 3:25 am

Chances of Sreeram & Rakesh are 60-40 as i feel , Shivam should be in trio with Them , but Bhoomi and swaroop should be out.


Malasri July 22, 2010 at 9:03 am


i think you wasted your power for Rakesh,he is not deserved it,well i would like to say something about sunidi!she is not fit for Judge,anuji and salim is awesome!her costumes also very bad selections!


amar July 22, 2010 at 2:34 pm

swaroop shud elminate


pooja July 23, 2010 at 3:35 am



Anu July 23, 2010 at 10:57 am

Right from his first performance SreeRam rocked. Not a single contestant in the show has been able to perform so well. He is the most deserving contestant to be Indian Idol 5 winner.


Amit July 24, 2010 at 9:44 am

Hi Pooja,

You have really the xlnt opinion.

Rakesh is worst. Only taking sympathy votes.

Shivam has exellent voice quality and complete versatile singer he is.

Shivam or Sreeram should be in Top Two.

I request all people please vote on singing and not on regionalism cast ans sympathy.



rishamm July 24, 2010 at 9:45 am

may I know what POOJA knows about singing? how can she be so rude about RAKESH? Is she frustrated to know that RAKESH is committed?


sam July 26, 2010 at 3:49 pm

swaroop rocks hes better thar sriram or rakesh.


Arva July 27, 2010 at 4:10 am

Hi all,

I completely agree with you rishamm, all those who wants rakesh to be out are just frustated as he has a girlfriend, but guys think on the other side he’s the best singer yaa true not better than sreeram but atleast he deserves to be in top 2 he’s the only one who can give a tough fight to sreeram in the finals which would be really interesting in seeing n if u think he isn’t desrving than i think u should just watch his perform on R.d. burman’s special episode where asha ji came it was truely rocking may be that can help u change ur mindsso guys plzzzzzzz vote for him

don’t wanna hurt anyone
but it’s true
Rakesh is rocking n sreeram too


Rabee July 27, 2010 at 7:22 am

Rakesh & Sreeram are most deserving contestants to win but both will lose!!


Iffi July 27, 2010 at 7:24 am

Shivam & Sreeram shud be in top 2 & swaroop shud be eliminated because he is worse among all!


Durga Dahal,Jiribasa, Assam July 28, 2010 at 4:36 am

Hi friends,

Voting system of Indian Idol should have discsting.
Indian idol 5 may be win Sreeram.
But This is not fare that Rakesh Maini, Shivam Pathak was eliminated.


amar July 29, 2010 at 1:30 am

Shivam nd Sriram will we finalist….
swarop nd bhumi r not in comparison…


Shadab July 29, 2010 at 5:40 am

Hi all,
As last elimination round taken place on 27th of july I am totally satisfied with voting system as in his last gala Shivam’s performance was not as better as Swaroop.
Really judgement of Bhartiya Janta was fair
Keep it up…


vishu August 1, 2010 at 2:47 pm

Rakesh is improving well.There is no doubt He will give too tuf competition to Sreeram in Grand Finalae on 15th August.So It is too tuf task to forecast who will be the Desh ki Awaz i.e.INDIAN IDOL -5.Lets watch for thPUBLIC Juuries………


Lubna August 2, 2010 at 4:05 pm

Rakesh is the best! His singing is amazing and he deserves to be the Indian idol 5. Best of Luck Rakesh!


Rehana August 3, 2010 at 1:47 am

Swaroop Khan my vote is for you. You have a fantastic voice and definetly the winner of Indian Idol 5. Just hang in there.

All the best.


Rehana August 3, 2010 at 2:03 am

Bhoomi needs to be gone (dissappear). Her voice is boring and menotenius and just simply annoying. She does not have the “X” factor. So SORRY GIRL BYE BYE.

Rakesh Mani, you were saved by the skin of your teeth. Judges why did you’ll put all your “EGGS” in one basket? Big mistake. (Unfair). Other contestants should be given/deserve a chance from your vote as well. Rakesh deserved what he got, that was the true refelection of the jantha.
Rakesh you cannot take critisim…stop crying like a BABY… GROW UP.


hubbaaslam August 3, 2010 at 8:06 am

dis was a very bad dicision dat shivam pathak has been gone i have so sad 4 him becoz actually he was a great singer of da year thisis so bad he was a 2nd sonu nigham his voice is so brilliant i liked his voice now i will never see indian idol be coz my hero has been gone


hubbaaslam August 3, 2010 at 8:21 am

HUBBA ASLAM FROM PAKISTAN


samra August 4, 2010 at 7:03 am

i dont like bhoomi.naushad ,rakesh,sreeram and shivam are best.sreeram u r true idol then rakesh is best.bye


Lakshmi August 16, 2010 at 8:14 am

I agree with Pooja above on Rakesh

HE IS A REAL CRY BABY !!!! he cried on stage when he was eliminated…”what mistake have i done in life” Oh my God !!!! does someone have to do a mistake in LIFE to be eliminated??? just watch how Shivam took it when he was in the same situation….

Rakesh learn from your juniors, thats all i can say !!!!
