Perhaps this is one way of attention seeking trying to do things different from conventional norms.
The standard practice in the navarathri mandapam concert is to sing the navarathri kriti for that day with an elaborate ragam, thanam, nereval and swaras. It is probably the first time and the first musician to break the norm/tradition, if what is stated is correct.
All in the name of innovation
