The performance was scheduled before Louis‘ mom died and Simon opened up about how she was looking forward to seeing her son perform.

Louis, I have to say something to you. I’ve known you now for six years. What you’ve just done, and the bravery, I respect you as an artist. I respect you as a person,” Simon said. “Your mom was so proud of you Louis and she was so looking forward to tonight. She’s watching down on you now and you’ve done her proud.”
