Elimination and Third Swarm
Last time on Clash of the
choirs: Blake Shelton took "Street" smarts, Patti Labelle took a
"stand" against violence, Nick Lachey hung out with his "Friends" and
Michael Bolton powered over Kelly Rowland as king of the "mountain."
The mission now continues. A matter of 120 minutes happens. For 1
choir, it ends here. Join us from New York for Night 3 of CLASH....OF
To kick things off, Team
Rowland will do a more soulful version of "Have Yourself A merry
little Christmas." After that, elimination begins.
Team Labelle is up first.
Will they keep standing for America or are they just gonna sit down
and watch the finals?.............A: Stand. They're safe. Team Bolton
is up, can they keep their hill or will they fall
down?........................They're almost cracking, and they're in
the bottom 2. Team Lachey is up, did the public score high
marks?..................................Yes they did. They're safe!
Team Shelton has no choice but to be in the bottom 2. Ouch!
Let's get the first period
started with Team Labelle doing "Jesus, Take the Wheel" by Carrie
Underwood. Facts about her, if you please.....
Boy, they added some
gospel to the mix. Liimu McGill felt a connection to the song. Her dad
lost at age 19. Kelly says it was bone chilling, and I
After a break, we get a
clip of "First Sunday" and Team Lachey is ready to fly with "Flight of
The Bumblebee." Wait a minute....you can't do it with a band. So what
do you do? Do it a cappella style. That'll make Chico proud, won't it
(C-Note: yup). It was silly to say the least and Shanda Folwer recalls
her first kiss with her boyfriend. Sweet! Blake didn't understand a
word. Neither did I.
Paying homage to every
DWTS results show possible, we get a segment on rivalry. Michael calls
Patti the dark horse, but she wants the #1 spot. Right now, we get the
4th place ranking to................................Team Bolton. They
can't go away with just 2 hands, their prize......would have to wait.
Team Shelton is up. They
took it outside, and now they're in with "Home" my Marc Broussard.
Fact about the song:
What's with those
stomping? Does this look like an Arena Football game? Nevermind. It's
the show. First period is over and we're off to the Christmas round.
Because we are in the holiday spirit, each choir will perform one
holiday song. Let's go!
Team Labelle is up first.
Her charity has tripled the number of African-American women with
cancer treatment. They'll now do "The Most Wonderful time of the
year." Facts about it:
Rachel who is a cancer
survivor was an inspiration and for the song....
One word: soulful. For
Kelly Rowland, another word: Duh! And for Blake, one more word: Stop!
Where do we pick a corner,
a whammy, $2500 or Team Lachey. That's what I thought with the last
choice, so they'll go next. His brother Issac was born premature and
Carrie Scott-Taylor's daughter has sickle cell anemia. But they're not
throwing away their robes yet. They'll do "All I Want for Christmas"
by Mariah Carey. Here's some tidbits about her:
"Vision of Love" was her
Was married to Tommy
Had a TRL meltdown
Her film "Glitter" was a
Michael said it started
slow, but it took flight, and we press on.
Susan Shechin gives some
props to the Air Force and Team Shelton is next. For his charity,
Oklahoma had a wildfire in 2005, and 1 couple got new stuff for the
new home. Now they'll perform "Joy to the world." Here's the wiki on
As you can tell by the
fact, it was a mixture of both. Second period is over and in the 3rd
period, we let the choirmasters get off the stand and get on the mics.
Let's hop to it.
Team Labelle is up doing
"Somewhere Over The Rainbow" from "The Wizard of Oz." Got any facts? I
As you can tell, she's
still Patti, but watch closely and you can see her shoes fly off.
Whoa-ho! Tim Bolognne....I'm not making this up, has 2 kids up in
Georgia. He just wants to say hi.
Team Lachey is up doing
"What's Left of Me." Here's the skinny:
April told us why she's
here, and falls under the Juniors
category. She's 18.
Team Shelton is up last
doing "This Can't be Good." Facts about him ahead now:
After the song, clothing
projectiles were flown. Run! Megan Roberts talks about her dad, who is
a high school teacher and Team Bolton will do "Santa Claus is comin'
to Town" for the final gun.
We are 3/4 of the mission.
Only one more day as the winner, and I mean the winning choir will go
home champions. Join us then, won't you? From New York everybody, Good
