At 8:30 PM, it's time for an update on the last group of the day. The Misfits, which consists of three Plastics and Kez Ban, are apparently dealing with Kez Ban's persistent absence, not just late last night, but also at breakfast and on the bus to the auditorium. They seem entirely prepared to cut her loose, not that I can blame them. Even backstage, she's twitching and dancing and doing weird dances while the other girls look on in confusion. When they finally sing, it turns out that Janelle Arthur is the only one who can actually do so, even though each of them gets a chance. Kez Ban does a big, weird finish, getting another standing O from Nicki for some reason. Nicki loved all of them, especially Janelle and Kez Ban. And it's the end of the day, so the judges are like, "Fuck it," and send them all through. At least that's the only explanation I can think of for all of them making it. Either that or they're so exhausted they've lost track of what kind of competition this is and are keeping Kez Ban purely for how many points her name is worth in Scrabble.
