“With the addition of Kardashian husbands Lamar Odom and Kris Humphries, poor Bruce Jenner gets pushed out of the front row.” —Kevin M. Kawa

“I do believe I spotted Tom’s doppelgänger in the audience after J.R.’s dance, peering out from behind Tom himself before the commercial break.” —kfran

“Pink boa feather in Carson’s pocket.” —irishdancer23

“When the camera cut to Tom standing on the balcony, the woman in green behind him had her shoes off! For just a second we saw bare feet through the railing and then the camera moved up further to hide it.” —jessart, endorsed by Daphne, Jem Ho
