Someone named Granny Rich is in the audience. I guess that's John Rich's grandma? Or mother? If that's the case, then sadly she has to bear part of the blame. Billy Ray announces that the next act that is safe is Laura and Sophie. Color me surprised! I thought they might be goners. Their mentoring video gets a little dramatic as we learn that Laura & Sophie are being plagued by interpersonal conflict. Laura (or Sophie?) -- the one with the braces -- cracks on Sophie (or Laura?) -- the one without braces -- for crying all the time, and the braceless one fires back that she's been aggravated with the other one for six weeks! Jeffrey Steele is thinking that he doesn't get paid enough for this as he asks if the two really want to do this together. Braces gives a halfhearted, "yeah," before noting that she doesn't feel the same way about Braceless as she used to. Braceless tearfully gets up and leaves in a huff. Then Braces starts crying too. I think that the fault lies with Braces alone. Braceless seems perfectly likeable, and is in fact the more palatable singer. Braces not only looks but sounds nasal. Jeffrey tells them to get it together, because friendship is what makes this act work. That, and the fact that kiddie porn has a stranglehold on the national imagination.
