    It was decided to continue with the show. Dustin Gee and Les Dennis were the act that had to follow Cooper, and other stars proceeded to present their acts in the limited space in front of the curtains. While the show continued, efforts were being made backstage to revive Cooper. It was not until a second commercial break that paramedics moved his body to Westminster Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival."

    Note:no reference to 20 minutes of audience cheering and clapping.
    According to Einstein there is no objective time.

    All time is relative depending on an observerís frame of reference.
    Imagine if Cooper had lay dying at the event horizon of a black hole - it could take eons for him to die if observed from the James Webb Telescope ;-)

    Mr V proved Einstein wrong long ago in the Axl thread.
