The opening number with the four hosts was roundly panned by the critics. Buz Kohan
, the song's lyricist, later said "I had written the opening number, called 'It All Comes Down to This.' They were all scared stiff, but ordinarily if you're scared, then you put in the time and rehearse. They took the opposite approach.
