"That is how you do it!”

Diljit Dosanjh appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and lit up the stage with his performance.

The talented star performed some of his hit tracks, including ‘GOAT’ and ‘Born to Shine’.

Jimmy Fallon introduced Diljit as “the biggest Punjabi artist on the planet” and asked the audience to catch him on his ongoing Dil-Luminati music tour across North America.

Diljit was dressed for the occasion, wearing traditional Punjabi attire, complete with a matching white turban and diamond watch.

He made a slight change to his ‘GOAT’ lyrics and pointed at Jimmy while singing:

“Hollywood vich jine stars hai unade vich baitha sardar goriye.”

After his energetic performances, Diljit paused for a moment and sang the line “Mein hu Punjab’ from his Netflix film Amar Singh Chamkila.

Following the showcase, an impressed Jimmy joined Diljit on stage and exclaimed:

“That is how you do it!”

Diljit responded by playfully rolling his moustache.

Fans were pleased to see Diljit make history by becoming the first Punjabi star to be a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

One said:

“First Indian singer to perform bhangra on an international talk show, such a proud moment.”

Another commented: “This man absolutely rocked it at Rogers Place in Edmonton recently!

“He sold out a couple of shows! So cool to see international artists getting global recognition especially here in North America!”

A behind-the-scenes clip also shows Diljit Dosanjh teaching Jimmy Fallon a few Punjabi phrases.

The host tries his best to say “Punjabi Aa Gaye Oye”, however, his attempt fails.

But Jimmy impresses Diljit by smoothly delivering: “Sat Sri Akal.”

Another light-hearted moment captured the exchange of gloves between the two.

Known not only for his music but also his impeccable fashion sense, Diljit Dosanjh usually wears black gloves during performances.

Jimmy Fallon surprised him with custom white gloves adorned with the show’s logo.

Diljit Dosanjh previously announced his appearance on the show and speaking about it, he said:

“I don’t know how I feel, I will maybe feel it when I am there. Let’s go see first what happens there.

“I have watched Jimmy Fallon’s show before. I am going there for a musical act, we will perform a song.

“I haven’t yet thought about what song to perform. I will decide that onboard a plane to the USA.

“I have a long list of shows I want to appear on. I have planned a lot of things, let’s see if I can achieve all that in this life.

“I just had one dream that I want to become extremely famous and become a singer.

“This kept growing and it happened. I was quite young when I had this in mind. I had a strong feeling about it and always prayed, ‘god, I don’t want to know anybody, but let the entire world know me’.”
