I was curious so, that's what I did and, IMO, the drums came in to quick and never recovered, she (and I think the bass) adjusted to him/it.I'm almost tempted to throw it in cubase though and stick a click in to see if thats the way it is haha.
There HAD to be some discussion about it. They obviously edited the program to show the judges reaction to it (that show isn't live is it?)
I still say the bass was spot on with her but I can't really hear when he adjusted.
In the amateur bands I play with, I see/hear people get and stay out of sync with tracks all the time, but we aren't anywhere near the level of national TV musicians.
Sometimes I will look at the bass player and he is just in a groove, eyes closed, bobbing his head, somehow not noticing he is a half click off That's why I break my backing tracks into segments. I give him about 5 seconds to get with the program, them shut it off and restart when possible.
