    They still need 2/3 of both houses on Congress

AHEH....

    The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof

If 3/4 of the state legislators demand a Constitutional Convention, they can do that also without the input of Congress.
