But the episode recovered to produce a record-breaking first dance.
The dance performance started tarnish after videotape lag causing the picture to run before the sound.
With cameras rolling from 6pm to allow studio audiences to shoot before 8pm as required by Covid laws, a pre-recorded video pre-recorded the sound by about 4 seconds, creating chaos with stairs introduction.
And even worse, a previous record Nicky Byrne have heard refer to the dashboard as “all in sync” – but that’s anything but.
‘Even OUT-SYNC NOTIFICATIONS’
One Twitter user complained: “Everything! Even the notifications are out of sync.”
DWTS The owner apologized: “Sorry for the minor audio issues on tonight’s show. It will be resolved shortly!
Dustin Turkey playfully tweeted: “Play fair with RTE, to go beyond Covid by separating sound from image socially. ”
