Dave tells Zayra she'd be a shoo-in on Rock Star: Planet Pluto. Gilby calls out, "Z!" I'm quickly disappointed to learn that he's simply shortened her name in an effort to stop mispronouncing it, and is not, as I first thought, bestowing a letter grade. Gilby tells her he appreciates the showmanship, but tells her to watch her keys. Which is kind of generous of him, actually. In order to "watch" a key, she would first have to "find" a key, and then "choose" a key. Tommy tells her that "confidence is a good thing, and we can tell that you have that." Zayra turns around in that suit that makes her look like a naked robot as the rest of us reflect on the fine line between "confidence" and "delusion." Jason asks if she wowed herself. Zayra says she did. "This is the biggest chance in my life...I'm all out, baby." You said it, Zayra. This is no place for taste. Dave makes a "wrap it up" motion and thanks Zayra.
Brooke's still positioned in the Nut Gallery (oblivious to the fact that Lukas is right next to her staring at her legs) when she introduces Josh. Brooke says that "like a true rock star, he's refusing to compromise his style." Not that tonight's a good example of that, because he's singing "Interstate Love Song" by Stone Temple Pilots. Josh is up onstage with his new sunburst Gibson strapped on, just getting ready to go, when Tommy stands up and yells, "I wanna come rock with you!" Josh can't believe that this moment he's been avoiding for two weeks has come after him. He pretends to be as thrilled as the audience, as Tommy runs up to the drum kit. But you know he's terrified and more than a little bit annoyed. Tommy counts off and tears in. Josh double-axes it with Rafael the Lead Guitarist. It is, indeed, a rock song. Josh isn't drowned out, but his voice isn't a good match anyway. Tommy, of course, does his usual thing behind the drums, only slower. After they're done, Tommy throws his sticks into the audience, and Josh's pick is quick to follow. I wonder which item is going to be fought over more? Tommy soul-hugs Josh and jogs back to the judges' dais, giving the audience-cam a "Look at me! I'm keeRAY-zy!" shake along the way.
Dave tells Josh that he did a good job, but he's not sure "good" is "good enough." "Word," Josh says blandly. Glad to see he's getting the message. Jason asks Josh how it felt to play in front of Tommy, and Josh is almost convincing when he says it was great. Tommy says that he had fun too, but wishes that Josh hadn't played his guitar. I can't really blame Josh, because that opening lick is hard to resist, but Tommy would have rather seen Josh "get [his] groove on" all over the stage more. I think we can all rest assured that Josh will take that advice to heart, right? Gilby tells Josh that this is what he's been waiting for from Josh, by which he means a "rock song." Watching at home, Scott Stapp is like, "Hey!" And Jason takes this opportunity to serve notice to the other Supernovices that they never know who could be playing with them. "It could be all three of us showing up behind you, you never know." The crowd freaks out at the very thought, and Josh bellows into his mic, "Bring it!" Whatever, big talker. Storm in particular appears ready to pee herself. Pick me! Pick me! she gestures. Josh stands next to Brooke, pumping up the audience while Brooke does her latest voting speech, which is a lot like all of her other voting speeches.
