In order to survive the music world,
you're going to have to learn to collaborate. Esther did not learn that
lesson, and as a result, her road to redemption ended last week. Now
it's down to the final five.
We're getting lonely. Who's got the balls
to be here? We're going to find out soon enough. Angelica, meanwhile, is
still reeling from "not being likable." In the Redemption Room, she goes
on camera for the first time without any makeup on. Well... it's a
start, but apparently you're still a "plastic" (Farah) "actress best
believe" (Jazmin). Angelica says that she'll have to find a balance
between being a great performer and ... being Angelica.
Next morning... NOTE!
"Good morning, ladies. You've made the
final five and the record contract is within your reach. Today, you'll
be heading to Geffen Records for a crucial meeting. Dress to impress."
Something's about to happen. Let's see
Challenge #1: "Scandalous". Deal
with a hostile press. Yvette Gayle from the Geffen PR department and
celeb journalist Lycia Naff will drill some survival skills into your
tiny little head. Most important of all is how you present yourself.
Angelica's first one up. She basically is
told to be as honest and as upfront as possible. She used to sell and do
a lot of drugs on the street. And a racist. She was trying to give us
what she thought they wanted.
Joie is next. She had a major contract
with Tommy Mottola... whom he called a dick. Two words: "flight
Mixi is next up. Her biggest concern...
not being stable enough. She says she's not that much of a party girl,
but she does like the sauce. In real life, she had "no focus".
Jazmin has been in a lot of bad
relationship. She wants to hit Lycia.... Everyone else does. But she was
herself throughout. She doesn't have "an edge."
Finally, Farah says that there isn't
another person on the planet who can outtalk her. She doesn't consider
anything she's ever done "a skeleton." Farah calls their game "weak".
Next, dinner and a note. On Geffen. The
truth comes out that being a rock star isn't just about being able to
sing. It's about keeping your nose clean. And while Mixi opens up about
their treating her "like an alcoholic", Angelica goes on about their
treating her "like a racist". You know, even though no one asked or
cared to know about it. And you can tell something's about to go down,
because Farah and Angelica exchange heated words and everyone sees the
Plastic for what she really is.
And then Angelica calls her a "skank."
And Farah throws a glass of marinara into her face. And a glass of wine.
And another glass of wine. And then the rest of the bottle. Round 1...
Speaking of... there's Jericho. He's got
the results to the last challenge. Yeah. Forgot about that, didn't you?
Line of the night comes from Mixi's
critique: "The trash can has more personality than you." Winner...
Jazmin. She gets extra help in tomorrow's challenge.
That night, the rest of the girls have a
little fun at Angelica's expense. The plan: set one clock for 4a. Set
another clock for 5a. Put honey on the latter clock. Yeah. You guys are
going to special hell. LET'S WATCH!
Angelica hopes to avoid being emotional
and/or crazy. Unfortunately for the rest of the women, that means that
nothing's going to happen.
Chris enters with another challenge.
Challenge #2: "Get Ur Freak On".
Write and perform a rap slamming the other girls in the house. Helping
out is Kardinal Offishall ("Dangerous" featuring Akon). Jazmin, because
she won yesterday's challenge, will get double the time of the other
girls. She uses it to come up with other ways of saying "bitches".
Mixi's going for a Gwen Stefani/reggae
vibe. That's unique for her. Some people's weirdo is some people's
Joie's rhyme is a little bit of a dig,
having fun with it and going all out.
Angelica finds it a little easy to write
lyrics... being a lyricist. She also makes fun of her midwestern
Farah writes some pretty good lyrics for
someone who doesn't write or rhyme. Her rap on elimination... "Genius."
But whose rap will reign supreme in front
of a crowd? It's showtime. Here to judge: Mauli B., A&R head Shawn
Holliday, and Kardinal Offishall, starting off by hyping the crowd with
his chart-topper "Dangerous".
Now for the ladies you came to see. Farah
reads off her rhyme from the paper... Hard to believe when you're doing
that, right? Angelica starts with a little dig and ends up being a ham.
"I'm not fakin' it. I'm nuts!" Yeah, we know. Joie ... completely screws
it. Mixi is next and pulls up a kid on stage while talking about Joie
wanting to ... do something on Jazmin that involves her mouth and Jaz's
... body. Yeah. I believe that's what got Akon in trouble a couple years
back. Come on, kids! Let's call out hoes! Finally, Jazmin was... well,
she was direct. Sexy sexy sexy.
The judges deliberate... Jazmin lived up
to the hype. Angelica was corny. Mixi shouldn't have brought the kid up.
Joie screwed it, and Farah's rap was "wack, wack, wack." It was suspect.
The winner today is... Jazmin! She's safe
for another week, and the others... are all up for elimination.
And here we are now. Jazmin sweeps both
challenges and gets to hang her album on the wall.
Mixi had the right idea about bringing
someone on the stage, but not a kid. Angelica put on a show, but she was
making a joke of it. Joie has a star quality, but she was not born for
this business. Farah was off 90% of the time. She was the only one who
stood there and read off her lyrics. A star's a star, a performer's a
But who gets the boot tonight?
JOIE. She's dropped and everyone's
She leaves a note of love to the ladies
before she leaves. But she won't stop singing. It's all she knows.
We're down to the final four. Who'll live
to see the final three? Find out next time.
