During the end of Bucky's performance he follows the camera to his left and sings "It's only the best I ever had". In the recap he is facing his right and sings "It's JUST the best I ever had". This is the second time this season that the recap of a performance hasn't matched up with the actual one, and the third time overall (it happened during one of Carrie's performances last year). All three times it has been a final performance and it seems that what they might do is record the rehearsal and use that footage instead since they did not have time to put it together all the time.
Actors Chris Rock, Whoopi Goldberg and Rachel Bison were all in the audience tonight.
Kenny Rogers: (to Elliot) You're not trying to impress them, you're trying to make them cry.
Ryan: I'm sure someone at the table has a flask.
Simon (To Paris): I thought it was very good, excellent choice of song. Reminded me of early Dionne Warwick, I thought.
Simon (To Mandisa After Randy Jackson said the last five seconds of the performance were great): I liked the four seconds afterwards.
Simon (To Taylor): It sounded like you'd chosen that song 10 seconds ago with no rehearsal.
Simon: Ryan, with respect, I'm not the one trying to look like someone out of 'Desperate Housewives.' Lose the beard.
Kellie starts her performance in the audience. This is the first time someone has STARTED there.
