Oh I love this link. Great takedown of people spinning stories. You really have to read the article to get it but basically they analyzed the audio track and you can see that there may have been some shenanigans.
As you can see above, they booed heavily. Fox quickly cut the crowd audio track to silence the boos, before realizing they’d have to eventually turn it back on for “Sweet Caroline”‘s crowd-participatory moments.

I was in the building and although I enjoy the same handful of Neil Diamond songs most people do, this was an awful moment.
