It wasn't known how - or whether - Osmond or her brother Donny would address Michael's death, though the 90-minute show does feature several portions of ad-libbing.

A Flamingo Las Vegas source says the hotel has been flooded with requests from people inquiring on where to send flowers and well wishes. "Everyone has really been rooting for her," the source says.

Flamingo Las Vegas announced that there will be five extra show dates from April 13-17 to accommodate those who had tickets to recently canceled shows.
