Before introducing his first act of the night, Simon tells us that the next act changed songs at midnight the day before. Why does he keep doing that to his people? Anyway, it's Lyric 145, and in their intro reel, their choreographer asks the former One4Five about their people back home in the path of Sandy. And we hear on a phone call home that they have power but still no cable or internet. We'll see how Lyric 145's fortunes decline when their families can't all vote for them. But I'm glad to say that Simon has toned down their wardrobe this week so that they're not wearing every single color at the same time. Yet he's made up for it by saddling them with a mash-up of Queen's "We Will Rock You" and "E.T." by Katy Perry. When they're done, L.A. laughs, asking who the diva was. "Freddie Mercury was a diva," Simon says matter-of-factly, rather putting L.A. in his place. L.A. says it was better than last week, but they've lost their way. "This could be the last time we see you," he chirps. Now, now, there's always tomorrow. Britney lectures that they're a hip-hop group and should be doing hip-hop songs. Out of the mouths of babes and barely-present people. Demi thinks it was a little overkill and she didn't get it. Simon reminds everyone that they put this together in hours and didn't complain about it. So stop complaining, Simon.
