Diljit Dosanjh lip-syncs on stage. And has no qualms admitting it

Well, most singers do it when they perform live but few have the guts to come clean about it. Kudos Diljit!

It's not every day that you get to attend a music concert of sorts with talents like Shankar Mahadevan, Monali Thakur and Diljit Dosanjh performing live. So when the launch event of Colors' upcoming singing reality show Rising Star promised us exactly this, we were clearly excited. This show will be judged live by the audience so to emphasise on the 'live performance' aspects, the organisers called all the three judges — Shankar, Monali and Diljit — to perform on stage. First up was Shankar, followed by Diljit and finally, Monali. Needless to say it was a treat for all fans. But what caught our attention was Diljit's modesty. As soon as the Udta Punjab star finished singing his cult hit Do You Know in the middle of thundering applause, he said something we never thought a singer would admit so easily.

Mujhe toh pata hi nahi tha ki live gaana hai. Maine toh bas track dala aur gaa diya. Main puri tayiyari karke nahi aaya tha. (I didn’t know I had to sing live. I just played a track and sang to it. Honestly I wasn’t prepared)!” the singer confessed, leaving us stumped.

Now on any other day, lip-syncing onstage could have spelt trouble for any singer, but Diljit's honesty left the audience clapping, laughing and cheering for him. Even Monali congratulated him for his candid confession. Kudos Diljit, after all, honesty is the best policy.
