Bhoomi Trivedi started with some self-composed lines: “Cholechhi Eka Kon Ojanaye.” “Maiya Maiya”, “Aazma Luck” from the films “Guru”, and “Luck” and an Asha Bhosle number “One Two Cha Cha Cha” followed. She also rendered several old classics including “Kajra Muhabbatwala” and “Saiyan Dilme Aana Re”.
The audience was eagerly awaiting Indian Idol Sreeram Chandra's performance. Apart form performing Idol songs, Sreeram, with his high-pitched voice, performed the theme song of the film “Three Idiots,” “Dekha Na Hairey.” A qawwali “Khwaja Mere Khwaja” and “Aaja Aaja Merey” followed.
