Meanwhile, outside on the Vegas strip as the ceremony went awry, a driver mounted the pavement and ran into dozens of pedestrians, killing one and injuring 37.
Bonus Steve Harvey: he misspelled the contestants' countries' names in his tweet of apology.
The cock-up is so monumental, and the carnage outside so bizarre, that there are already conspiracy theories.
