Zayn gets an enormous reception from his hometown crowd of Montreal. The crowd sings along to his entrance music fervently, and because of the huge response, his music continues to repeat over and over, prolonging the celebration as Zayn dances around and the crowd sings enthusiastically. Then finally, Bliss gets to her interview. Zayn talks about how good it is to be back home. He loves Montreal, great city, he says. Zayn says the only thing he doesn’t like is the people.

Zayn goes back and forth with the crowd and has them all riled up. Bliss tries to stand up for the fans and tells Zayn the problem isn’t the people, it’s him.
