Khloe's backstage again, reporting to us, "I feel tension." She interviews Paige and Carly, who are both looking forward to singing, but clearly wondering what kind of talkative bug got up Chloe's ass tonight. On to Beatrice's intro reel, in which she explains that her song is for her younger sisters Georgia and Esther, who were adopted from Vietnam and have some health and learning issues and who, according to Beatrice, can't make it this week due to the family's financial issues. But it looks like they made it out after all, with their moms, and Beatrice's week is made. Her song? "Chasing Cars" by Snow Patrol, which I think Britney picked because it's pretty. She sings it on a stage decorated like an autumn explosion, dressed in her usual overdone layered-ragamuffin-Time Lord aesthetic, and battles against blowing leaves and the wind machine, but mostly pulls it off. Her sisters certainly seem proud. L.A. tells her she's cute and an inspiration, and makes Britney kvell by telling her she has such good taste. Which is something Britney Spears is clearly not accustomed to hearing. Demi, however, wants to hear Beatrice do something "different and fun" already. Simon tells her he liked this better than last week, and Britney tells her it was her best vocal performance so far. "WHY YOU CRYING?" Khloe suddenly blares into Beatrice's ear as she and Mario join her onstage. They talk about how emotional it all is and even Britney chokes up a little. I think she might be missing that snack-dog we saw her cradling during some of the mentoring sessions.
