Tonight is one of the best nights for musicians across the country. The Mirchi Music Awards 2018 is one award show you can’t miss. End you weekend with some good music and seeing your favourite musicians win awards for songs you’ll heard on a loop throughout the year. The performances are one of the main reasons why we never miss this awards night. From Neha Bhasin’s mind-blowing performance to the special tribute to AR Rahman for 25 years of his contribution to Indian cinema, it was a wonderful evening. Jab Harry Met Sejal took a lot of awards home for the songs.
Bappi Lahiri was also given a Lifetime Achievement award. Obviously, there was a humour segment by Sonu Nigam and singers paid tribute to the late Shashi Kapoor. We got to hear some of the best songs that we grew up listening to. It was so nostalgic. Congratulations to everyone who took home an award this year.
