From Mosp on their 'who's next?' discussion.
"Okay, so I thought I'd just break in here to point out something that nobody has mentioned. The ending of the show tonight proved that the whole thing is scripted. Ryan asked Paul if he wanted to sing out, and Paul asked what he should sing (hint: it never happens that way - either they don't get the chance to sing or they sing what they want). Then Ryan turns to JLo and says the choice is up to her. She blinks teary-eyed and asks for Maggie Mae.
But here's the kicker: the song starts playing before the word Maggie hits her lips.
This proves: (1) The band knew Paul was going home and was given the song to play in advance; (2) JLo knew Paul was going home and her surprise and teary eyes were all fake; (3) Ryan knew that Paul would ask for a request; (4) Paul knew he was toast and was told to ask for a request.
Totally fake, and not a word here about what should be the death blow to this show if this flummery is given some publicity. This is the smoking gun, folks."
