Singer Sukhwinder Singh feels that while Justin Bieber is not the only artist to lip-sync in a live show, the Canadian singer’s Mumbai concert this year was a ‘mess’.

Singer Sukhwinder Singh was in Delhi recently for a live show.

Singer Sukhwinder Singh is inarguably one of the most energetic and accomplished artists in Bollywood. With his live shows being complete sell-outs, very few can exhibit the same level of energy on stage, as him.

Live shows are no mean feat, as artists have to give their fans a chance to listen to them in person. However, some artists often prefer to lip-sync their songs, like Canadian hitmaker Justin Bieber did this year in Mumbai. In what was perhaps one of the most anticipated events of the year, he was widely criticised by the attendees for not performing his songs live. Commenting on this, Sukhwinder says, “Sab log karte hain, but rarely. But Bieber ne too much kiya. He created a mess. He has only one quality — he’s good looking, baaki sab disqualifications hai. Par saare western artists itne stupid nahi hain; saare nahi karte.”

“Hum log jab show karte hain, jab tak gala gaaye nahi, tab tak usko show nahi maante (When we perform on stage, unless we sing live, we don’t consider it a show,” adds the hitmaker, who was in the Capital recently for a performance.

Sukhwinder goes on to reveal the secret to his insane energy on stage. “The most important element of live shows is the content. You should know what you are doing because your audience is right there in front of you. They observe everything. If your mannerism has naughtiness and grace, you’re a star. I personally feel that your energy increases as soon you start feeling relaxed on stage and enjoy your performance,” he explains.

“Agar aap nonsense talk kar dete hain fun ke liye, toh vahaan se pata chalta hai aap mein star element nahi hai (If you talk nonsense just for the sake of fun, it shows that you lack star quality),” adds the singer, whose latest song Zinda Hai in Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif starrer Tiger Zinda Hai is already creating waves. His upcoming projects include Thugs Of Hindostan and Aanand L Rai’s untitled film, which will feature Shah Rukh Khan playing the role of a dwarf.
