"Episode 1.7" - August 14

We're "Working for the Weekend" on a Tuesday night, as six would-be singers play for a shot at $50,000 and the title of Singing Bee Champion.

Round 1:

- 2000, Ricky Martin, "She Bangs"
Band: "She bangs, she bangs / Oh baby when she moves, she moves / I go crazy...."
#18: "She bangs, she bangs." Nope.
#159: "She looks like a flower and she sings like a bee." Sorry...
#87: "'Cause she looks like a flower, but she stings like a bee!" RIGHT!

- 1968, Steppenwolf, "Born to Be Wild"
Band: "Get your motor runnin', / head out on the highway..."
#123: "Lookin' for adventure...." RIGHT!

Halfway home...

- 1994, The Rembrandts, "I'll Be There For You (Theme from 'Friends')"
Band: "So no one told you life was gonna be this way (clap clap clap clap) / Your job's a joke, you're broke / Your love life's DOA..."
#205: "It's like it's always stuck in second gear..." Close...
#38: "Feel like you're always stuck in second gear..." Sorry...
#18: "It's like you're always stuck in second gear..." GOT IT!

- 1989, Cher, "If I Could Turn Back Time"
Band: "I don't know why I did the things I did / I don't know why I said the things I said / Pride's like a knife, it can cut deep inside..."
#159: "If I could turn back time..." No, and you're pathetic.
#205: "Words are like weapons, they wound sometimes." That's four!

Round 2, Karaoke Showdown:

First round, it's #87 Lakendra (Macon County, GA) vs. #123 Lauren (Annapolis, MD).

- 1987, Tiffany, "I Think We're Alone Now"
Lakendra gets 14. Lauren needs at least that much.

- 1981, Softcell, "Tainted Love"
PERFECT! Lauren moves on.

Next round, its #18 Tina (Columbus, OH) vs. #205 Terry (Ramsey, NJ).

- 1985, Madonna, "Material Girl"
Tina... is completely spaced out to start. And no, you can't start over. She gets nine.

- 1985, Stevie Wonder, "Part-Time Lover"
Terry gets...  sucked out. He got two. Tina moves on.

Round 3, Sing the chorus:

Lauren is first...

- 2002, Maroon5, "This Love"
Lauren: "This love has taken its toll on me / She said goodbye too many times before / Her heart is breaking in front of me / and I have no choice, 'cause I won't say goodbye anymore". On the money.

Tina needs to get this right to stay alive.

- 1983, Night Ranger, "Sister Christian"
Tina: "It's truuuuueeeeeee.... / You're motorin' much too... " Nope, it was "You're motoring, what's your price for flight, and finding Mr. Right." Lauren is tonight's Singing Bee champ!

And that entitles her to play for $50,000 in... The Final Countdown...

Ray: "It's the Final Countdown!"

Seven songs, seven missing phrases. For each one you get right, you get $5000. Get five, and you just made $50,000 cash money. Get a song wrong, it's a strike. Three of them and it's game over buh-bye.

Song #1: "Roxanne, you don't have to wear that dress tonight / Walk the streets for money..."

$5000      
Song #2: "Color me your color, baby / Color me your car / Color me your color, darling / I know who you are / Come up off your color chart..."

Lauren: "Cover me with all your love." Nope. It was "I know where you're coming from".

(1980, Blondie, "Call Me")

$5000 X    
Song #3: "Very superstitious / Writing's on the wall / Very superstitious..."

Lauren: "Ladder's 'bout to fall". That's two!

$10,000 X    
Song #4: "I like big butts and I cannot lie / You other brothers can't deny / That when a girl walks in with an itty-bitty waist / and a round thing in your face..."

Lauren: "You get sprung!" That's three!

(1992, Sir Mix-a-Lot, "Baby Got Back")
$15,000 X    
Song #5: "Huggin' and a kissin' / Dancin' and a lovin' / Wearin' next to nothin'..."
