Last time, tension in the house led to a
startling revelation of racism on the part of one of the singers. The accuser:
Jazmin, was one of the bottom. The accused: Angelica, is the new frontrunner.
But in another shocking turn of events, Nyia, who was in no danger of
elimination, but eager to get back home to her family, dropped herself from the
Now nine women remain on the road to redemption.
Jazmin says she's not a big fighter... though she
has thrown a woman out of a window once. Meanwhile, everyone is reflecting on
Jazmin's allegations of racism toward Angelica, who's now feeling confused about
it all. So who's right here? Let's go... to the video tape.
(Angelica's audition tape)
"I'm not racist... at all... BUT I've definitely met a lot of people that
personify their stereotypes."
Angelica thinks she's scared of her. Or just
mean. Or something.
Next morning... more tension. Farah tells
Angelica not to let anyone tell her that she's a racist if she knows that not to
Meanwhile, Mixi has a music note: "Despite the
myth that rockers like a 24/7 party lifestyle, to be a star you have to maintain
a rockin' body too. Get changed for a workout and be outside in 10 minutes." If
it's anything like what happened last episode, you can expect a lot of
Today's challenge is about fitness... and
dancing. Assisting is Joe Slaughter, an expert choreographer. Because Angelica
won the last challenge, she gets to sit out while picking two teams of four...
Team 1: Kededra (a former stripper), Mixi, Jazmin,
Team 2: Joie, Esther, Elisa, Kendra
Also helping are a couple of Chris' friends, WWE
divas Mickie James & Candice Michelle. Winner of this challenge gets an
advantage in the next elimination challenge.
And it seems that the girls have no problem
without music. Meanwhile, when you play Paula Abdul, it gets... "retarded".
Joe's words, not mine.
From there, they have to head upstairs to
perform... on the roof. Seventeen flights of stairs. Running.
Challenge 1: Stairway to Heaven (Dance
It's a race. First team there gets a breather AND
Joie isn't a runner... Kededra runs like a horse.
Her team... wins by a hair. Meaning it's time for team #2, the pink team, to get
to work. RIGHT NOW. And because Kendra is out of shape and tired... she
basically tries to mail it in. Kededra on the other hand thought her team's
choreography is better. Except for Farah.
The judges... are not amused. Joe was looking for
quality, though. His picks: Kededra and Esther. However, overall quality
goes to Kededra. She won it for the blue team.
Another note! "Fitness is important, but you got
to know when to cut loose and to help some of Sunset's best rockers." Enter...
the rockers... and debauchery ensues. Elisa goes over the story of how she was
kicked out of Cobra Starship. Apparently stalking a bandmate... bad.
And... next morning... Another note. "Performing
is a tough business, but you must always deliver a stunning performance, and
your vocals cannot suffer. Today's tracks are on the piano. Keep practicing up
until showtime, because tonight, someone goes home. And tonight, no heels."
Kededra, Jazmin, and Angelica get the same
song... "Before He Cheats" by Carrie Underwood. Kendra, Mixi, and Esther get
"One Way or Another" by Blondie. Farah complains that she would NEVER sing the
song she's given, "The Sweet Escape" by Gwen Stefani & Akon... I don't think
Farah would sing ANYTHING.
First song ("Before He Cheats")... interesting.
Second song ("The Sweet Escape")... like a twelve-year-old singing in front of a
mirror. Farah says she doesn't want to go home right now, but she doesn't know
where she is as a performer. One thing she knows is that she can't go back to
her old life.
Going to the performance at the El Portal
Challenge 2: "The Show Must Go On" (putting on a
There are eight different places on the stage
where you can perform your set. You're going to have to sing while hitting each
and every one of these marks. Mixi, Kededra, Farah, and Jazmin, because they
won, they'll have time with Joe from yesterday.
Judging will be Mauli B, Joe, Nicole Ehrlich
(video commissioner & Geffen executive), and Andrew Flad (product manager,
First up, Kendra with "One Way or Another". She
hits the marks, but looks like crap in the transitions. Will Esther be cleaner?
She... uhh... no.
Next is Joie with "The Sweet Escape"... who
messes up the lyrics all over the place, but at least owns the stage. Same thing
with Elisa, who also missed her marks. Mauli says it best... "Elisa... is not
Meanwhile, Kededra hopes to be a harbinger of
peace between Angelica and Jazmin. Angelica basically called Jazmin a bitch.
Jazmin called Angelica a racist. Kededra's waiting for someone to throw down.
It's just crazy.
Angelica, fired up after the fight with Jazmin,
is ready to sing "Before He Cheats". She owns the stage. Will Jazmin do the
same? Umm... No. No she doesn't. She nails the points, but once again, nerves
get the best of her.
Meanwhile, the rest of the girls tear it up on
stage. Then mend it... then tear it up again. Mixi had no idea what she was
doing... Kededra had no idea where she was going. Or saying for that matter.
Farah.... well, the less said about her the better.
But what do the judges say? The winner with the
most stage presence was... Angelica! She was the strongest performer of the lot.
Her album remains on the wall. In the bottom three... Elisa, for not finishing
all eight marks, Kededra for just meandering.... and Farah... for sucking out
And hey! Kendra isn't up there!
Farah was thought to be "worse than karaoke". She
tried to combine everything and it didn't work. Elisa was sexy and confident,
but as soon as she opened her mouth, it all crumbled. Kededra... was just
But Angelica can save one of them. They all think
they deserve to be here because they have the love and the drive and the
competition. Angelica saves... "Kededra, but I won't save you again unless you
keep your vulnerability."
Going home tonight is... Elisa. She thinks a big
weight has been lifted. She's going to have to make sure that she goes about it
the proper way. Maybe she'll write a redemption song of her own...
Next week, a rather famous singer gets to judge.
