Dave acknowledges as much, but as for himself, well, he's got a little story to tell. He says that someone named Marty got "Hit Me Baby One More Time" last year, and "he made it work." He also says that Dilana made a Cyndi Lauper song work a few weeks ago. But this? "For me, that just didn't work." "Okay," Storm acknowledges. Dave clarifies, as if any clarification is necessary: "I hated that." The audience protests. Storm does, also, good-naturedly floating this excuse: "Check it -- I was up for, like, forty-eight hours, went to Vegas with these three guys, and I woke up with Gloria Gaynor. Not everyone can say that. Storm says that she tried, and that she's sorry Dave didn't like it. "I thought that was sautÃ©ed in wrong sauce," Tommy opines, earning a big laugh from the sous-chef, but she actually looks a little wounded when he adds, "I kinda want my money back." Ouch. That's not something you want to hear from somebody who just flew you to Vegas. Gilby didn't like it either, and gives Storm a little speech about how now that they're in the final eight, they need to pretend they're in the band every time they get up there. As she's dismissed, Storm puts on a brave face. "That's okay, man. I like spankings." But sadly, all Brooke does is stand next to her and give the voting numbers. Before going to commercial, she tells Toby and Gilby that they're up next.
Coming back from commmercial, Brooke reminds us that we can protect Storm by voting for her. Funny, she doesn't usually do that. Does somebody have a little girl-crush? In any case, it's now time for Toby to share the stage with Gilby for "Solsbury Hill." And I'd have to say that Toby got kind of gypped, because Gilby's perched up on the baby grand piano to play his acoustic guitar, which is going to make him a little tough to interact with. Plus Tommy's going to fire Gilby for sitting down, anyway. Toby's voice is a great match for this song and he does a good job, although he almost appears to lose the beat towards the end of the second chorus. Not that that's hard, what with the song's being in seven-four time or some damn thing. Then Toby puts the mic on the mic stand and plays a pair of bongos he's got set up there, all the way through the end. Beats a megaphone.
