This Jodi Season 5 is very different from the past. Usually jodi's are paired with someone in the opposite gender but this time round they are paired with people of the same gender.The only exception is Nethran and his daughter Abhinaya. And usually in Jodi No 1 all the jodi's have been adults but this time they have allowed kids to participate too. This time round the famous host of Jodi No 1 Series & Boys VS Girls Divyadarshini & Deepak are not hosting this season instead Sivakarthikeyan who was a participant in one of the season and Bhavna, who has hosted the 'Miss Chennai Show' are hosting. In this season, other than Ramya Krishnan there isn't any confirmed judge. They are inviting new judges for each round. This season is kinda tough because of the gender,age and different dancing background/styles. And also they have made the show more exciting by having a pair from Singapore: Issac and Logan. This is also new to Jodi No 1 as usually all the participants are local artists. Finals was held on 6 November 2011.
