Dave smirks at Ryan, even briefly covering his mouth to conceal a guffaw. "Dude, what the hell happened to you...that was unbelievable, dude." Amazingly, he means it in a good way, and calls Ryan "a contender." I kind of think that Dave is actually fucking with him. Tommy carefully calls it "...interesting," but with a lot more ellipses in front of it. I'm interested in what Tommy actually thinks, but I'm not going to find out because Dave overrules him: "Dude, that was the shit and you know it!" Tommy either gives up or decides to play along. Gilby also doesn't know what happened to Ryan, but says that his vocals have been great the past few weeks. Tommy says he knows exactly what happened: "He got laid after that last performance." Raucous cheers. Jason says something about tips of icebergs, and tells Ryan to keep doing different stuff. Ryan seriously thanks them, or as seriously as one can do anything while looking like an extra from Mystery Men.
Storm's wearing a "Got Balls?" t-shirt, which is an appropriate choice given that she's singing "We Are the Champions" by Queen. At center stage, she spreads her hands for quiet, then starts in softly. So softly, in fact, that I suspect her mic isn't on at first. But then it comes on and she's flat, so maybe that was a good thing. She eventually recovers and sings it straight, playing to the waving arms in the audience. The band drops out for a couple of measures between choruses, but other than that it's pretty faithful to the original. And for the second week in a row, Storm finishes up without having done anything insane.
