But when the commercial break ends and the broadcast resumes, you're supposed to just sit wherever you happen to find yourself, which is how Mariah Carey, chatting with Steven Spielberg (about what, one wonders), found herself plopping down in Meryl Streep's chair. After commenting on Oprah Winfrey's potential 2020 presidential run, Streep responded to reports that singer Mariah Carey took her seat at the big awards show. 1 and wherever you are, you have to drop to the seats.

Clarkson raves about how nice Streep was to meet, even though she's not sure the actress was aware of who she was meeting. "I'll sit on your lap", cause it looked comfy'.
