In an interview, Lori explains that once they got to the hotel, the street was really narrow, and she hit another car when trying to park. We see Lori trying to parallel park and totally side-swiping another car in the process, then stopping before she can cause any more damage. Okay, this is the point where they should have told Lori to get out of the car, take her stuff, and go wherever she needs to go, and the rest of them would meet her there after parking and everything. But, no. That would be too easy. Everyone keeps talking about how late Lori is. In an interview, Quarrel says that she was trying not to laugh, but it was funny. Lori finally gets parked. The car she hit belonged to the concierge of the hotel, who still manages to welcome them to the hotel. In an interview, Nicole says that Lori looked like "a teapot ready to explode." Lori hails a cab, and in an interview, explains that she's late. Did you get that? That she's late? And unprepared? I don't know if they mentioned it enough times in this segment.
Lori arrives at Boston College. In an interview, Lori says that she's waited four years to get to this point. Lori gets out of her cab and greets her friends, crying out, "I'm not ready at all!" Lori warms up with her group while she voice-overs that she doesn't know what she's going to do without her singing group, which is such an important part of her life that we've never heard of it before. The concert begins, and they do an a cappella version of "Respect." It sounds pretty cool, and Lori sings the lead. She's fine. I have my usual complaints about her singing -- that she's too Christina Aguilera and not enough Aretha Franklin. But she doesn't embarrass herself or anything. Her parents and sisters are there along with her roommates. Her parents are sitting together, even though they said they never loved each other. After the song finishes, they probably went on to do a bunch of other songs. But we don't get to see that. Instead, Lori takes the microphone by herself and babbles really quickly about how she had to pick a song blah blah blah. Just sing already! She finally starts singing "Hold On" by Sarah McLachlan, but the stupid editors have to interrupt it to include clips of Lori explaining what the song means instead of letting us listen to the lyrics and draw our own conclusions. Lori sounds a lot better on this song, because she just sings it and doesn't try to be all growly.
