This is the first season finale...at least in the half-hour department.
The first lady tonight, #18, does “She Bangs” by Ricky Martin. She sings the target as “She bangs, she bangs”….NO WAY.
The next lady, #159, sings “She looks like a flower and stings like a bee”…almost.
The third lady, #87, tried “’Cause she looks like a flower, but she stings like a bee”…that’s right, so she advances!
New song- “Born to be Wild” by Steppenwolf. The #123 lady sings the necessary lyric as “Lookin’ for adventure”….you bet!
Next up…”I’ll Be There for You”, which was the theme song to the TV series “Friends”. The boy marked #205 sings the target as “It’s like it’s always stuck in second gear”…just missed it.
#38 did the lyric as “Feel like you’re always stuck in second gear”…he had it right, but adding the word “Feel” is NOT ACCEPTABLE. Thus, the target is “It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear”.
#18 sung it correctly, and there’s just one spot left for Round 2.
Next song…”If I Could Turn Back Time” by Cher. #159 did the needed lyric as “If I could turn back time”…that comes way too soon at this point in the song, so she’s wrong.
#205 sings “Words are like weapons, they wound sometimes”….this round is over!
#87 is LaKendra and #123 is Lauren. For Round 2, “Fill in the Lyrics” will be played. Remember, a series of lyrics with some blanks are scrolled on the big screen, and for each one of the 15 he/she fills in correctly, a point is awarded.
LaKendra’s song…”I Think We’re Alone Now” by Tiffany. She gets…14 right!
Lauren needs to be perfect to win. Her song is “Tainted Love” by Soft Cell. She…got them all, so she’s in the Championship Round!
#18 is Tina and #205 is Kerry. Tina’s song…”Material Girl”! She got off to a HORRIBLE start by forgetting to start singing the beginning of the song, costing her valuable points. She eventually got it together, although out of tune, and got…9 right.
The man must beat that number with “Part-Time Lover” by Stevie Wonder. He does a 180 of Tina’s performance- he started off great, but fell apart later on, and as a result…only got two right, so Tina lucks out and will face Lauren!
Lauren’s next song…”This Love” by Maroon 5. She’s….successful!
Tina has to do as well with “Sister Christian” by Night Ranger….and she failed, so Lauren’s the winner!
First song in “The Final Countdown”….”Roxanne” by The Police. She sings the target as “You don’t care if it’s wrong, or if it’s right”…she’s on the board.
Second song- “Call Me” by Blondie. She sings the lyric as “Cover me with all your love”….totally wrong, so that’s strike one. Correct: “I know where you’re comin’ from”.
Third song- “Superstition” by Stevie Wonder. She sings the target as “Ladders ‘bout to fall”….she doubles up.
Fourth song- “Baby Got Back” by Sir Mix-a-Lot. She sings the line as “You get sprung”…you bet, and she now has $15,000!
Fifth song- “Love Shack” by the B-52s. Guess is “Cause it’s hot as an oven”…one away from all the money!
Next- “Bad Day” by Daniel Powter. For the money, she sings “Sing a sad song just to turn it around”…game NOT over. She left out the “You” at the beginning.
This will decide it- “I Want It That Way” by the Backstreet Boys. Again, for the $50,000, she sings “I never wanna her you say”…
