Coming back, Brooke reminds us that it this week's song selection was left up to internet and cell phone polling, and we go to a clip demonstrating just that. In the Mansion, the Supernovices enter the song selection room to find a "gigundous" (TM Storm) computer monitor notifying them that it's Fan Selection Week. That is really not a descriptive term at all for what happens this episode. Ryan is the first to find out which song the voters chose for him, and it's the one he's never sung before. Coldplay's "Clocks" apparently edged out an encore of "Losing My Religion" by one percentage point. Okay, people, that was good, but we've seen it twice. Toby reads some comment by a (deaf) user who explained that Ryan should do well with this song because of his strong high register. And Ryan interviews that he's amazed that the internet has already figured out what he's going to do with the song before he's even gotten used to the fact that he's going to sing it. Yes, Ryan, we work fast around here.
Lukas -- his hair still slicked back from a photo shoot and displaying plenty of forehead acreage -- learns that he's been tapped to do "Lithium." Which of course is the song that launched Dilana on this show. "Maybe the fans do want to see me show up Dilana," Lukas guesses in an interview, and promises to put his own spin on it. Toby is thrilled to learn that he's doing "Rebel Yell," and Magni has been assigned "I Alone" by Live. On Storm's screen, the bar on the bottom just keeps going, as she learns that she's singing "Bring Me to Life" by Evanescence. As selected by 68% of the voters, who would like to hear Storm sing a song by a girl for once (not counting "I Will Survive," which has of course long been co-opted by Cake and drag queens). Storm is worried right away. And then Dilana finds out that she's singing "Mother Mother," and is excited to show everyone that she's "back." Even though she didn't actually go anywhere. Storm reads the fan message that Dilana "gives women who listen to rock someone to look up to." As long as those women are standing in a very deep hole. "Keep fighting the fight and I'm sure we will see you standing there when the smoke clears." Dilana tells us that she's filled with new energy. "I cannot let the fans down," she vows. Dilana? You're singing's not the issue.
