Nach baliye 8  today was colored in the colors of Punjab as Super Singh Diljit Dosanjh graced the dance reality  show. The semi finale aired today and the jodis are just a step away from knowing the name of the winning jodi. As it was time for Sonakshi Sinha’s challenge, she had asked the contestants to be connected somehow throughout their act. First up were Monaya and they were dressed as spiders.  Connected with a rope Mohit and Sanaya stunned everyone with their performance.

Since it was Sonakshi’s challenge, she was asked to dance her way to her fan’s hearts. To accompany her, Diljit was chosen. A paper dance was their challenge and they both tried to be each other’s dance partner. Abigail and Sanam came up next. Their act had everything the judges wanted to see in an semi finale performance. They danced to show how a bad dream captures one’s soul and they were connected to each other through skin. Scoring an almost perfect score of 29, Abigail and Sanam were on cloud nine.

Sanam asked Diljit to come on stage and be his bhangra buddy. After a studendous show of energy through some bhangra, Divyanka and Vivek came to the stage. They were blindfolded all throughout the act and their hands were tied to be in contact. Divek were connected without even looking at each other. The judges praised their efforts and they scored 25 out of 30.

Shoaib and Dipika wore their dancing shoes and presented a beautiful act where they became the roots of a tree and were tied to each other. The wonderful melody of “Itni si Khushi” was gracefully presented in a dance. They scored 24 and were the lowest scoring jodi of the week. Dipika got emotional as their performance was not up to the mark for semi finale.

The finalists was announced as per the cumulative scores of two weeks, Sanam and Abigail became the first one to be the finalists of Nach Baliye 8. Mohit and Sanaya became the second couple to be in the finale. Dipika-Shoaib and Divyanka-Vivek landed up in bottom two. Just one step before the finale, Dipika and Shoaib got eliminated and they left the show with tears in their eyes. (Also Read: Nach Baliye 8: Sanaya Irani and Mohit Sehgal’s fans offered phones in exchange of votes!)
