We have a lot of pressure before the performance and these moments make us relax. We contestants enjoy these moments. If there is only singing happening, the atmosphere will become serious,” added Ashish. ALSO READ: Indian Idol 12: Shanmukhapriya And Mohammed Danish Out Of The Finale Race? Find Out HERE
