One viewer wrote: & Man this actor that they selected for Sebastian in the Little Mermaid Live show is terrible … how is wearing a red jacket and red pants suddenly a crab? At least they should have given him claws or something. & # 39;

Mills responded to the criticism during the broadcast as he wrote: & # 39; For those who were wondering, Shaggy wore crab claws in early rehearsals and it looked ridiculous. #TheLittleMermaidLive. & # 39;

The director doubled when he placed a photo of the 51-year-old hit maker It Wasn & # 39; t Me in the dressing room with red leather claw gloves.

Shaggy & # 39; s lack of hand clothing was central to much hilarious commentary on the microblogging site.

& # 39; If you are wondering where Shaggy & # 39; s claws are, they have placed them in LA to promote this show & # 39 ;, said @ StageName2Come, who had taken a photo of a huge crab claw in LA.

Other fans such as @bitharvest compared Shaggy & # 39; s red leather outfit with Eddie Murphy's & # 39; s of his iconic outfit in Eddie Murphy Raw.

Despite the controversy, live production brought high scores for ABC because it scored an impressive score of 2.6 among adults aged 18-49 and nearly 9 million viewers according to Variety on Wednesday.

John Legend & # 39; s Jesus Christ Superstar from 2018 attracted slightly more viewers with just over 9 million but had a lower rating of 1.7.

The two-hour special was essentially a hybrid of live action song and dance numbers from songs from the film and a few new songs as well, between the animated non-singing parts of the film.

Although some fans had nothing but praise, the performance of Queen Latifah in particular was confused by the format.

The show started with a surprising performance by Jodi Benson, who voiced Ariel in the original animated version of The Little Mermaid, who said she can't believe & # 39; that it has been 30 years since the original film.

& # 39; Tonight we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of one of the most loved animation films of all time & # 39 ;, she said.

She added that the special was half of the original animated film and half of the re-enactment of live action, a format that many fans talked to.

While others were not too enthusiastic about the format, one aspect of the show that was almost universally praised was the performance of Queen Latifah as Ursula.

Perhaps the most talked-about moment of the night was at the end of the performance of John Stamos, who played chef Louis singing an exciting version of Les Poissons.

At the end of the show, immersed in flour, Stamos broke his character to tell a joke … that he went to flub.

& # 39; I knew I should have played Prince Albert … or Prince Eric, & # 39; he said as he mistaken Prince Eric from the show with Prince Albert that fans were talking about.
