It integrated colourful movements of the water fountain to a dance performance on stage and an aerial dance act right above the stage and the water fountain -- signifying a symmetry between water, earth and sky. Around 150 Indian and international artistes participated in it.

There has also been buzz about a live show by American pop rock band Maroon 5 at the celebration night, which follows the March 9 wedding of the couple.
