Continuity mistake: Near the end, as Paul Shaffer judges the Battle of the Bands, the red stage curtain is closed and the stage is empty. We know that the Blues Brothers were the last performers, and they carried their microphone stands with them as they retreated behind the curtain; so, all sound gear and both bands are behind the curtain, and the stage is empty in front of the curtain except for Paul Shaffer. As Shaffer announces the winner, he ducks to his right and goes center-stage, where the curtain is instantly wide open again with band members and sound gear filling the stage all the way to the edge, which would be physically impossible to accomplish in the split-second camera cut.Charles Austin Miller
