The session was a first of the series the singer plans on doing. Aside from these online performances being free of cost and easily accessible, another important thing about Sethi's session was how the users could interact with him during the performance.

"The quarantine doesn't feel that bad anymore," said many of his fans as they were thrilled to finally have the singer fulfill their requests and respond to their queries, while entertaining them.

Sethi sang everything that was being asked of him and when one user questioned if he could do a Michael Jackson song, he said "why not?"
