I’m confused. I started watching after reading it was cancelled here on FR (it was almost over on TV) . Then I watched the full rebroadcast....it wasn’t the same. Jessica Sanchez was on at the beginning of the 2012 concert, right? She was on at the end of the rebroadcast as well. The copyright said 2012 at the end. Gary Sinise said capitol police advised everyone to leave, but they were continuing on with the show. Strange.
Okay, here’s what’s happened. I watched the whole thing buffered in my DVR. During the 8pm-9:30pm broadcast, which began live, the concert was indeed cut short. Then PBS played the latter half of the 2011 concert to fill the time.
During the 9:30-11pm broadcast, which was supposed to be repeat of the concert that had just aired live, PBS did this: They began with a recording of the 2012 concert, and then after the reading of the widow’s letter, they switched to a recording of the FULL DRESS REHEARSAL of the night before!
Here’s a giveaway: during the live broadcast (8pm), Natalie was wearing a cream-colored dress, and her hair was pulled up, and she had very dark eye makeup. In the rehearsal, and in the subsequent broadcast on PBS (9:30pm), she wore a red dress, her hair was straightened and hanging loosely, and her eye makeup was much lighter.
I confirmed this by checking a media PR site.
they rebroadcast the second half of the 2011 show- did you see BB King??? the letter from the girl who back to Vietnam to see where her dad died??
