  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: "Expressing Yourself" features gigantic dancing dresses. No people, just dresses. It's supposed to be unrealistic, but that doesn't alleviate the weirdness very much.
    • Some performances of "Merry Christmas, Margaret Thatcher" feature a giant, puppeteer-esque INFLATABLE Maggie Thatcher looming over the stage/audience like a Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade balloon from Hell.
