Final Swarm and Coronation
December 20

This is the home stretch of the battle. Who will prevail? Is it: Blake Shelton and his Oklahoma City Yard Dawgz, Nick Lachey and his Cincy Big Red Machine, or Patti Labelle and her Philadelphia Wings? All will be revealed in a matter of 2 hours time. Ladies & Gentlemen, this is the finale of CLASH....OF THE CHOIRS!

Getting things started is all of the choirs doing a holiday medley. Team Labelle is up doing Sleigh Ride," Team Bolton does "Winter Wonderland" next, "Jingle Bell Rock" goes to Team Rowland, and then after that, Team Lachey doing "Let It Snow." (not the one by Boyz II Men) Finally, Team Shelton doing "Rockin' around the Christmas Tree" before all choirs sung out "Merry Christmas." Under the tree, $250,000 for one choir.

Team Shelton will kick the battle off first doing "Celebration" by Kool & The Gang. Facts about these guys:

  • "Celebration" is the most requested wedding song

  • "Jungle Boogie" was featured in NCAA March Madness 06

  • J.T. Taylor wasn't in the group until 1979

It was more soulful, and added some extra measure. Anthony Brannon told us a story about the nickname, "Big Love." Not real love, not Rossi Morreale love, "Big Love."

Team Labelle is up doing "No More Drama" by Mary J. Blige. Facts about the diva and this song:

  • This song samples the theme to the soap opera "The Young & The Restless"

  • Her old label, Uptown featured Sean "Diddy" combs who worked there before he was famous

  • "What's the 411?" was her first album

It killed it like a perfect game of "Duck Hunt." Get it, dog! For this show, Mary Elizabeth Fitzpatrick lost her daughter and her joy and then her singing in this show made history.

Well, that's our finalists. But what about the eliminated? Well, we got 'em here. That's coming up, but Tracy Morgan is in the building to make his pick. It's.....all of them. Sorry, trace, but you got to choose one....nevermind. Team Rowland is up doing "Survivor" by Destiny's Child. Here's a quip about her old group:

  • Beyonce is most known for her solo albums

Team Bolton is up next. "When A Man loves a woman" by Percy Sledge is his song and here's some facts about the white soul singer:

  • "Love Is a wonderful thing" and "How Am I Supposed to Live Without You" are his biggest hits

  • Once linked to Nicolette Sheridan of "Desperate Housewives"

In rehearsal, the gang took it old school wearing mullet wigs to remind him of his.....career. Anyways.....

Team Shelton up to bat now doing a country song. I don't know what the title is and I'm not up to my current country stuff. But one Hynes brother make his other one so proud in the audience. That's cool.

Team Bolton is up doing "Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing" by Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell. Here's a wiki about it:

  • Been used in a commercial

And Team Rowland is off the bench to do their thing. They used this own money to get Spencer's deaf father for the finale. He made it. And now they'll do "One Sweet Day" by Mariah Carey & Boyz II Men. Here's the skinny on it:

  • 16 weeks at #1

I believe it was off at the start & finish, but it was alright. 

Team Labelle is up doing "We Are The Champions" by Queen. Here's what's up on the song:

  • Homer Simpson sang it

  • Played in arenas when a team wins a title

  • Played at the end of "D2: The Mighty Ducks"

  • "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" parodied it on NBC being in 4th place

Are they champions? I don't know, we'll see.

Now we award the bronze medal....it goes to......you'll just have to wait later. But right now, Team Lachey will now be doing "Singasong" by Earth, Wind & Fire. Wiki up!

  • "Let's Groove" was the first video played on BET.

  • "Shining Star" was their biggest hit

  • If you combined the band name with Heart and Water, you get Captain Planet in cartoons

2 guys did a street dance. Hey guys, "Dance War" isn't on until January. AH, forget it. Marguerite Johnson is so proud of his son. Don't you all agree?

The bronze medal, and I mean it this time goes to.........................................................................................................................................Team Shelton. Remember the consolation prize I told you about? Well, thanks to GE, the 4 runners-up will get $50,000 for their efforts. Tracy Morgan is back to announce a winner. He opens the envelope, and it's "this team right here" which is..............

TEAM LACHEY!

So, Team Lachey wins it, but don't feel bad for Team Labelle, they gave it a good run. Their best highlight was Patti being the diva, but it was Team Lachey's acapella bumblebee flight that stung the competition. We've completed the mission. Our work here is done. When a 2nd season comes down the road, who do you want to be choir directors? Marie Digby? Darius Rucker? Gladys Knight? Jewel? Justin Timberlake? Maybe we'll know for sure. But for now....
