Yes, on Sunday he smiled between songs, despite himself.  I wrote:

"He only acknowledged the audience one that I noticed: about halfway
through, between songs, he half smiled at Alex and Richard. People
started cheering the smile. That made him smile more broadly, and then
the audience went totally crazy."

He was definitely enjoying himself on Sunday -- the two songs with
gunplay, for example, and the one about the queen of Sheba, were
delivered with real relish.
