Q. Hey Oracle,
I was wondering, when Chris is singing at a concert, and he makes up a line that fits into the song, does he make it up on the spot? Or does he think about it before actually singing it?


The Oracle replies:

There are certain songs, such as Politik, where he will improvise a line especially for the crowd he's playing too (�give the Springboks the rugby world cup" at a South Africa show) but I've never seen him write them beforehand.
Chris is great at making lyrics up on the spot.
I know depending on his local language knowledge, he asks someone before a show to translate some phrases that he'd like to say to the crowd.
