Versatility
December 10

Last time, the girls used the power of hip-hop to slam each other... but when the chips came down, Joie froze up, and found herself on the way out. Now four remain. In an hour... only the final three will compete for that elusive contract.

They're laying down another track at the recording studio to step it up a little more with Peter Michael Escovedo. The track to be recorded... Amy Winehouse's "You Know I'm No Good."

Next morning... NOTE!

"Today, you're going to explore your journey to redemption, from past to present. I have a special guest arriving to meet you guys."

That guest... Dave Yarovesky, director for videos from Fitty to Gwen. They're making a video today. It's your job to tell your story. Today's about embracing your past and facing your future.

Challenge #1: "Girls on Film". Music video performance.

This is going to be tough for Jazmin, who just wants to tell her story as accurately as possible. She had a screwed up childhood thanks to her father. Who she pushes down the stairs. Mixi's a killer performer who can drink anyone under the table. And apparently she has issues with two naked dudes on film as well. She feels like she's cheating on Mr. Cheese Sticks from last episode. But she killed it. Meanwhile, Angelica draws on her past as a child actress and victim of abuse. But the camera didn't really love her. Farah's story involves... total skank, ghetto Barbie, orgies. Nice... And she likes to direct herself. Even better!

And apparently the director likes realism, because now Mixi's drunk.

Let's watch the video now...

... and everyone loves it.

Next morning... ANOTHER NOTE!

"We are almost down to the final three. Your next challenge will decide who stays and who goes. Get prepared to get all shook up."

First up, a stop at Geffen with Ron Fair and Jeff Norskog.

Angelica's style is a scruffy rock groove. She was a hippy for a while. She has to be the rock chick, though. She can't play-act it. "To me, it all seems like an act." Jazmin is a born singer, and she has been battling on stage for a while now. They don't know how good she is. Farah doesn't fit in anywhere. She's willing to make a wholehearted commitment to this. She believes that what the world needs now. Mixi is a freak... a freak who doesn't really vocalize well.

Oh, and Farah compares her competition to Vegas-league Kelly Clarkson, Amy Winehouse, and Carrie Underwood.

The star of the video yesterday... was Mixi. She wins the last challenge and gets a little bit of a headstart on this next challenge.

Today, the girls will be singing "Roxanne" by the Police... but they will not sing the Police version. The girls are going to be diverse today...  The girls will be working with four producers representing four different genres.

Jazmin: Francis Benitez will give her a salsa version.
Farah: Marco Mendoza will give her a punk version.
Angelica: Black Shakespeare will give her a reggae version.
Mixi: Bryson Jones will give her a country version.

Mixi's up first... She's not a country singer. She has to do less bounce and more slide. One thing they won't let you do in the Opry is cuss. So something like "(^_^) you" would translate into "bless your heart". Jazmin... has never sung Spanish before. Ever. Angelica channels island grooves. Farah gets an idea to feel the way she feels.

After the practice, Farah is the topic of conversation for the rest of the ladies... and she walks right in on it. Farah wanted to deck Angelica.

And Mixi.

Never mind that. It's Showtime! Back to judge are Nicole Ehrlich, Andrew Flad, and Mauli B. They will judge on your vocals and how well you stepped into your given genre.

Angelica's first with her reggae take.  She was happy with it. Next is Mixi. She's gone country for about three minutes. She's not scared to win. She's scared to go home. Next is Senorita Yasmin. She shakes it proper at least. And she has fun with it. Farah has to perform like a cannon on her punk cover. And she missings her lyrics. Not good.

The winner will be declared at elimination.

Mixi completely breaks down about her performance. Farah says that everyone rocked it tonight, but at the same time, Mixi's not Johnny Cash.

It's elimination time. Redemption Song is all about "evolving and changing". That's what this week was all about.

Angelica was "fake", "amazing karaoke", and the performances have been difficult for her to find her voice. Farah was scary and the judges would "ask for their money back." Jazmin sang better, but tonight felt like a concert. Mixi was boring and full of ups and down.

This week's winner was... Angelica. In second place... Jazmin. That leaves Farah and Mixi.

Finishing third... Mixi. Farah is going home tonight, but she does so with no regrets. "I'm the only me here."

We're down to the final three. One more big test remains. Who'll find the ultimate redemption? Find out next week.
