While talking to ETimes, the 39-year-old singer asserted, “I did what I always do in my shows, go with the flow. Yes of course this was a bigger platform not in magnitude but in scope, so I had to prepare beforehand. But, five minutes before starting, it all got washed out. I think that turned out better because I was my natural self.”

During his performance on the international platform, Diljit urged his audience to simply "follow the vibe" if they were not able to understand the language. Interestingly, he had prepared this sentence in English before the show, but ended up delivering it in Punjabi. When asked to comment on the same, he said, “Music has no language, the world is made up of sound. If we like the sound we vibe with it.”

He further explained, “I didn’t pay attention to who was listening to me and who wasn’t. But I knew that many people weren’t following my language, which is why I ensured that I said this on stage, though what I said was also in Punjabi! Honestly, I had prepared saying that in English but impromptu Punjabi came out of me, as it usually does! End moment pe angreji aayi hi nai meri bahar.”

His performance received love from a bunch of Indian stars including Arjun Rampal, Karan Tacker, Jassie Gill, Asees Kaur, International musician Tesher, and Sophie Choudry, among others who expressed pride and dropped their praises.
