Of course, the next thing they're going to talk about is the confusion about "the look." He explains that he didn't hear Chris discuss Virginia Tech and he was in the middle of talking to Paula about the "singing through the nose" thing. He goes on: "I may not be the nicest person in the world, but I would never, ever, ever disrespect those families or those victims, and I felt it was important to set the record straight." Everyone cheers. (Hey, Bucky Covington is in the audience.) Then, just to prove it some more, they show the camera on Simon the whole time, and it's PATENTLY OBVIOUS that he was having a whole conversation with Paula the whole time Chris was talking. They show him saying, "I didn't get that, he said that as if he hasn't sung like that every week," etc. etc. So, are we all on the same page here now?
