Always check the mic before going on-air!

To me the impressive thing is that the on-air talent didn't flinch.  Failures happen and it's always good to see an entire team that's professional about it.

Clapper has had a lot of on air time in the last few years. I think someone less experienced would have reacted very differently.

I've seen the Stevie one before - amazing!

Not that this compares but just this past weekend, I had a couple of DMX fixtures on a lighting tree start flickering on me during a show. Whilst still singing harmonies through my headset,  I ran over to stage side, grabbed a spare cable from the box, I jumped on stage, lowered the lighting tree, tried a couple of different positions switching out cables ( as DMX is sometimes a little misleading as to which fixture is at fault),  found the fix, raised the stand, and ran back to the iPads to mix all in less than 2 minutes - whilst still singing backing....it got a few cheers - LOL !

I actually like being able to fixing stuff live like that.  It's so satisfying.
Hooray for Debbie Ray Vaughn!
