Opening the show with a one-liner saying it's "50 Shades of Gay," Neil's song and dance routine alluded to how life should be more like theater. He crooned, "Imagine if everywhere you went you heard a band, wouldn't life be so much sweeter if you could cue the weather with your hand? Cool. What if all of your rhyming answers and you never left home without your back up dancers? What if life were more like theater, wouldn't life be grand?"
