If they were smart - just add CGI crowd to th live footage - am sure the technology is there to do that and much less wasteful.

The cardboard cut out crowd reported the other week was even more stupid/wasteful.

Some companies have way too much money to waste-Son Masayoshi has also lost a pile recently too!

You'd think at least the robots could sing in tune.
