At the middle school, the Glee Club, consisting of Lincoln, Clyde, Liam, Paula and Byron, is practicing vocal warmups. As they practice, their teacher, Mr. Budden, arrives and tells his students that they need to practice a number for an upcoming district championship, where if they should succeed, they move onto regionals, and states that he's currently holding auditions for the solo. As Mr. Budden excuses himself to deal with a brain freeze after drinking his Flippee too fast, Clyde expresses his excitement to audition for the solo, as he has taken on numerous exercises to get his voice right and wants to impress his aunts, Hap and Hoda, who are flying in from the Canary Islands to see him sing. He sings a bit of the solo, but when he asks if he got the tone right, Lincoln provides his input by singing the same verse. His vocals cause Liam and Paula to be driven to tears at how graceful he sounded, and Mr. Budden, having overheard him, declares to Lincoln that he'll be given the solo number. Lincoln tries to tells Mr. Budden that auditioning for the solo wasn't his intention and suggests to listen to Clyde, but Mr. Budden has already made his mind. Lincoln apologizes to Clyde for stealing his goal, and Clyde takes it lightly.
At the McBride house, Clyde is revealed to be incredibly bitter at having lost his chance to play the solo, saying he went through countless amounts of training to perfect his voice. As he bakes his sadness away with his cats, he theorizes that if Lincoln were to lose his voice, then he could step in and take over the role.
The next day, Clyde spends his whole day at school trying to get Lincoln to lose his voice, such having Lincoln sing the opening greeting to the news program, singing all the lyrics to an incredibly long song, and using a floor buffer to force Lincoln to talk about his day at the top of his lungs. At the Glee Club, Lincoln enters with a chalkboard and tells his fellow club members that he can't do the solo because he lost his voice. When Mr. Budden asks what to do now, Clyde says that he can step in, and Lincoln gives the thumbs up. With no other choice, Mr. Budden gives Clyde the solo, much to his glee.
On the theater stage, as the home ec club (consisting of Zach, Rusty and Stella) takes measurements of the singers so they can make their costumes, Mr. Budden tells his students that it's time to practice. The song starts off with Liam and Byron singing the opening, and Clyde, being hoisted by a rope being held by Paula, attempts to sing his part, but Paula accidentally flings him onto the walls (which she doesn't claim responsibility for). After being let down, attempts to sing his part, but it becomes apparent that he can't do it, as he either forgets his lines, sings the wrong tempo, or sings the wrong key. As Mr. Budden decides to call it a day, Clyde realizes that his inability to sing the solo, as well as his selfishness of taking Lincoln out, cost the club their chances of winning the championship, and realizes that he needs to make things up.
At the Loud House, as Lincoln rests in his room, Clyde enters and admits to Lincoln that he deliberately made him lose his voice because of his jealousy of not getting the solo, and apologizes for being jealous. Although shocked at first, Lincoln understands what Clyde means and decides to forgive him. After doing so, Clyde reveals that he has a CD that can help Lincoln get his voice back. Listening to the CD, Lincoln is instructed to jump on a trampoline, gargle gallons of saltwater, and inhale steam for a prolonged period of time.
At night, the championship is being held. As the entire Loud and McBride families sit down, Clyde arrives with Lincoln and tells Mr. Budden that he got his voice back. At the same time, the home ec class arrives with their costumes, which are army themed. Just before they start singing, Lincoln reveals that his voice isn't entirely back, and says that he needs a backup singer for help. Realizing he's referring to him, Clyde eagerly accepts the role. At that moment, the show starts and after Liam and Byron sing their part, Lincoln and Clyde, being hoisted by ropes, sing as a duet, much to everyone's entertainment. However, their performance is cut short after they collapse to the ground, as Paula was controlling the ropes (where she once again doesn't claim responsibility for).
