Because gazing at her is part of the draw?
BTW, if it hasn't been suggested already, the lady, if indeed she didn't vocalize live, might well have been concerned foremost with protecting her brand. Many a SNAFU can rear its ugly head in these thrown-together events, and I reckon she wanted to play it safe. IOW there's a fear perhaps that her adoring fans might not be so enthusiastic had things gone awry. Safe to say that Image/perceptions do greatly matter in that business.
Besides, Ifn I didn't know better, I'd say this was a publicity stunt to ensure the folks are talking and tweeting about her. Crazier things have happened...
