    I went to that!

    Everyone started laughing when the girls wearing those things came out. I felt bad for them...

    • I went 'cuz I saw your post about it in the seattle community. I didn't feel as bad though, she specifically seemed to take it in stride well, I'm sure she knew what it looked like(hah especially the shadow when she first walked onstage). It seemed like most people couldn't help a snicker here or there.

      Don't feel bad for me. I was probably laughing harder than 'everyone'.
