Silvio takes over for the DiSalvatores, saying their talent is that they have no talent. Wow, an amazing show of self-awareness from Silvio there. The Montgomerys will be just fine, as Darius explains that they are talented. Darius Jr. brought his clarinet along and Tyiler brought his violin, and even if they totally suck at it, the judges aren't going to give them low scores because then they'll look like total assholes. The Favereys have narrowed their act down to two choices: "70s modern disco" or "80s rock band." So they're dancing? Singing? I don't understand what those categories mean. Lenny, of course, is all stressed out from having to drive and think at the same time. Dylan busts out the guitar and starts to play, and I just saw a possum outside. It walked along my fence, then went into the neighbors' yard. It was more interesting than this show. Lenny starts to sing along, which gets Dee all upset because he's singing too loudly for her to hear the music Dylan is playing. Lenny says Dee has stage fright, so this will be a hard challenge for her. I also think she might have trouble if the act involves any kind of memorization or reading. Dee suddenly gets all aggressive and says she won't stand for being in the bottom three again. The kids are scared.
Amie Pollard has had her hair wrapped in a towel for like six hours now. She says she's comfortable in front of an audience, but she isn't sure anyone else in her family feels the same way. The Pollard family is dragging Amie down! Amie proposes doing something to the tune of "Old MacDonald," because then they can pull a Rex Harrison in My Fair Lady and talk their way through the song. She threatens to stick her foot up Aaron's ass if he doesn't play along. Over in the Rico RV, Ricardo wants to do some kind of play while Erica does her makeup. Erica says that this will give Ricardo a chance to impress everyone with his knowledge of Route 66. He says something about demographics that confuses Ricky, who thinks his dad said "diaphragm." Ricardo hastily corrects him. Heh.
Then we go back to the DiSalvatores, because apparently the Cootes disappeared this week. Seriously, where are they? Silvio says he'll take full responsibility if the team loses. Amy is fine with that, but then Silvio says he wants to do a rap and she disagrees with him. Ugh, I'm starting to hate Amy more than Silvio. At least he seems to mean well. Silvio writes down some lyrics like he's Eminem in 8 Mile and recites his rap. Yeah, it's terrible. And it requires that Silvio tells us he's from New York like six more times. Amy can't get her lyrics down at all so she starts shrieking instead of working harder to memorize them.
