Nach Baliye 8: Divyanka Tripathi, Vivek Dahiya, Sanaya Irani, Bharti Singh-Harsh Limbachey enthrall with their performances!

One of the most famous dance reality shows Nach Baliye has come back and we are here with the episode review of its premiere. After judging Indian Idol, Sonakshi Sinha has returned to judge this dance show and she has with her Mohit Suri (who has given hit movies like Aashiqui 2 and Ek Villian) and Terence Lewis. The show is all about couples and their togetherness. Here is how all the contestants fared in the FIRST episode of the reality show. The episode started with the introduction to three judges and the first ones to come on the stage were Divyanka Tripathi and Vivek Dahiya. They danced on Shah Rukh Khan-Kajol’s Gerua and floored judges with their simple and sweet love story.

Next up was Bharti Singh and Harsh Limbacheye first, they wowed judges with their comic timing and then later they danced on Tamma Tamma and got the taskmaster Terence Lewis’s approval. After them came the professional dancer Sanam Johar and his baliye Abigail. Terence was especially happy with the way the two dance complete with technique and difficult lifts. Dance wise, this jodi seems most strong. Naagin 2’s Aashka came with her boyfriend Brent and dance on Bloody Hell. Brent, an American, is a weapon instructor by profession but his dance was very much loved by Sonakshi. Their sweet declaration of love too was soul stirring. Sasural Simar Ka’s  Dipika Kakkar and Shoaib Ibrahim came next with their technology-heavy performance. They danced on Sau Aaasman and got a standing ovation from all three judges. Mohit Suri was mighty impressed with them and said that they are two bodies but one soul.ALSO READ: Nach Baliye 8: Divyanka Tripathi-Vivek Dahiya, Bharti Singh-Harsh Limbachiyaa, get final names of ALL celeb participants

Sidharth Jadhav and Trupti were the next contestants. Their filmi love story brought tears to judges eyes but their DHAMAKEDAAR performance on Zingat earned them judges’ approval. Monalisa Antara and Vikram Rajpoot came up next with Laila Main Laila and also cleared air about their Bigg Boss marriage. Sonakshi danced in the end with Mona and Vikram. TV’s most popular jodi Mohit and Sanaya came up next with Befikre track. They also danced on Badirnath Ki Dulhania track. Judges gace green signal to this performance and Sonakshi called their love story relatable.

Utkarsha and Manjo came next and danced on Cutie Pie. They are older couple on the show. Pritam and Amnjyot’s love story was a bit relatable one as she posed as a married couple who are not all that lovey dovey. They danced on Zaalima..they sure make for one good looking pair and judges agreed. This was the last performance. Here’s what we liked and disliked about the show.

What’s hot?

Nach Baliye 8 has some good mix of contestants and each has their own strengths. They are diverse and would bring variety to the show.

What’s Not?

While it is true that the makers have tried to bring in variety to the show, the format seems old and ancient. There is nothing new that the makers are offering to us with this season of Nach Baliye. But this time around big names from TV industry have been roped in which will guarantee views.
