PowerPoint 2010 - I can't get rid of delay between two animations!

I have NO delay set yet there is a delay between the second and third animations.  I want to get rid of the delay. How do I do this?
I have:
1.  attached the actual PPT file with the problem slide. (There's only one slide in the file.)
2.  the graphic showing the delay in the animation pane (see below).

You can easily fix this.

Select the Performer of the year yellow animation box and right mouse click or click the pull down menu at the right hand side of the entry.
Select start with previous. This removes the 4.7 second delay.

Yes it says there is no delay but holding the house over the yellow animation box on the timeline says there is a 4.7 second delay. I would assume there is an error in the app.

Hope this helps
The delay is because the after previous animation is waiting for the sound to finish.

Also at some stage the slide has had the timings recorded.

If you set the sound to play for 1 slide (not until end of slide) it will work
