Synopsis
While The Archies audition for Simon Cowell's X Factor season finale, Josie and the Pussycats audition for American Idol's season finale. The media is more interested in the relationship between Archie and Valerie (from the two different bands) and follow them through the reality show "The Bingoes" which follows Bingo Wilkins' band. In the end, the finale of "The Bingoes" wins the ratings because of the relationship and Bingo quips that they didn't even appear in the final show.
