When we come back, both hosts are in the audience before Simon announces that for Fifth Harmony, the fans have "annoyingly" picked a song by Demi Lovato, "Give Your Heart a Break." Looks like the fans wanted Ally's nerd-glasses back this week, too. Most of the judges appear impressed with this performance, which seems to include some actual harmonies. L.A. emotes mock-surprise at that, and adds that it was their best. "A friend of mine does this song very good and so did you guys," Britney [sic]s. Demi gushes in agreement (probably kvelling internally that Britney may possibly have just referred to her as a friend), and admits that Simon "actually did a good job this week," but remembering to point out that the fans picked it. Simon takes credit for shortlisting the song in the first place and says everyone needs to vote for Fifth Harmony because the show wouldn't be the same without them. Well, if he says so.
Diamond is singing "Diamonds," because the internet is nothing if not on-the-nose. What's more, they've called for the positioning of Diamond in a suspended cage shaped like a diamond! All we need now is a baseball field and a special appearance from Neil Diamond while the James Bond movie Diamonds Are Forever plays on the projection screen at stage left and a muted video of Carol Channing singing "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" on the projection screen at stage right. Okay, and we also need a better song and performance, because neither of them is doing a whole lot for me. L.A. says he likes both Diamond and the song, but not this rendition so much. Demi thought she looked like a star. Which, coincidentally, has the same number of points as a diamond! Simon says that the second half of the song was better than the first, and he liked the staging, but Diamond has the rotten luck to be in a very competitive top six. "Well, top five, actually," he corrects, leaving CeCe's name unspoken. Britney tells her it was like the song was made for her. Insightful as always. Khloe invites Diamond to grub for votes, which she does with all the artlessness of a thirteen-year-old who isn't Carly Rose Sonenclar.
