Coming back, Brooke says that she can't wait to hear who Supernova is going to sing with next week. Jason babbles about how cool that was, and reassures the other Supernovices that they'll get chances as well. Jason says that he especially dug the dancing girls. Tommy takes that opportunity to give them a plug: "Those were Ivan Kane's Royal Jelly Super Hottie Dancers from Club Forty Deuce." Damn, that's a lot of words for someone like Tommy to remember.
Brooke regains control of the show long enough to tell us that we can win tickets to the show's finale on September 13 by putting together the coolest Supernova MySpace page. Wait, September 13? Funny, at the start of the season, Brooke said we had thirteen weeks. September 13 means eleven weeks. Which says two things to me. One is that there's probably another double elimination coming up. The other is that I have two fewer recaps to write, which means this lawsuit is costing me money. As for the contest itself, I didn't get all the details, but if you win, be sure to wear a Glarkware shirt on camera, okay?
Now on to the encore, which Jason gets to announce. "One really super-dynamic performance, we thought," Jason says, by which he means Ryan. All the other Supernovices are so happy for poor little Ryan, who isn't actually a threat to any of them. They all stand up to applaud him except for Lukas, who isn't ever happy for anyone else, and Zayra, to whom Ryan actually is a threat. "Thanks, guys," Ryan tells Supernova, and launches into his song. It's pretty similar to last night, except that the House Band is on electric instruments this time and Ryan isn't dressed like Heathcliffe from Wuthering Heights. There's even a string quartet, but oddly enough it's a different one from last night except for maybe the cellist. It's hard to tell because they get very little screen time and they rock back and forth in their chairs a lot.
And then it's bottom three time. Brooke goes old-school, telling the Supernovices that the people she's about to name are the ones who were in the bottom three as of the beginning of voting last night. Storm looks over at Brooke like, bring it. Brooke doesn't even bother to put in much of a pause before dropping Zayra's name. "What?" Storm yelps, as is becoming her habit. Patrice is the next to stand, and then it's Toby. The audience moans loudly, and Storm's incredulity is palpable. Which must make Patrice feel good. Even Supernova shakes their heads to see Toby on his feet.
