Episode 2.1

Millions of people have been stung once again by the Singing Bee, so CMT is back with another round! Who's got the chops to take $10,000? Only one way to find out!

We start with a visit from Reba McEntire, who gives our heroine Melissa some badly needed advice: stick to hosting. Then... what's a game show without a "Big Deal"?


- 2001, Toby Keith, "I Wanna Talk About Me"
BAND: I wanna talk about me / Wanna talk about I / Wanna talk about number one / Oh my me my / What I think, what I like, what I know
Samantha: "What I want, what I see!" RIGHT ON!

- 1994, Alan Jackson, "Gone Country"
BAND: She's gone country, look at them boots / She's gone country, back to her roots / She's gone country...
Devin: "A new kind of suit." GOOD!

- 2006, Daughtry, "Home"
BAND: Well I'm going home / To the place where I belong / Where your love has always been...
William: "Enough for me." THAT'S ENOUGH!

- 2009, Luke Bryan, "Do I"
BAND: Do I turn you on at all when I kiss you baby / Does the sound of me wanting you...
Michele: "Drive you crazy." THAT'S FOUR!

And now that we have four, it's time to play the Bee! Let's meet the players...

Devin: "Swim out past the breaker, watch the world die." RIGHT!

- 2008, Jason Michael Carroll, "Where I'm From (high those suits dollar Armani and shoes beside)
William: "Beside high Armani suits"... And no. It was "beside those high dollar shoes and Armani suits." 

- 1990, Reba McEntire, "Fancy" (to they'll be you to nice gentlemen said Fancy be the nice she just)
Michele: "She said just be nice to the gentlemen Fancy they'll be nice to you." NICE!

William: 0
Michele: 5

SINGING WITH THE ENEMY (5 points per line)

Samantha & Devin are up first.

- 1991, Trisha Yearwood, "She's in Love with the Boy"

BAND: Katie's sitting on the old front porch / Watching the chickens peck the ground / There ain't a whole lot going on tonight...
Samantha: "In this one horse town." (RIGHT!)
BAND: Over yonder, coming up the road...
Devin: "In a beat-up Chevy truck" (RIGHT!)
BAND: Her boyfriend Tommy, he's laying on the horn...
Samantha: Splashing through the mud and the muck (RIGHT!)
BAND: Her daddy says, "he ain't worth a lick...
Devin: "When it comes to brains, he got the short end of the stick" (RIGHT!)
BAND: But Katie's young and man she just don't care...
Samantha: She'd follow Tommy anywhere (RIGHT!)
BAND: She's in love with the boy / She's in love with the boy / She's in love with the boy / And even if they have to run away...
Devin: She's gonna marry that boy someday (RIGHT!)

PERFECT! 15 points each. Next up are William and Michele...

- 2009, Jason Aldean, "Big Green Tractor"

BAND: Said we can fire it up and I can show you around / Sit up on the hill and watch...
William: "The sun go down" (RIGHT!)
BAND: When the fireflies are dancing...
Michele: "Help me Melissa!" (and the moon comes out)
BAND: We can turn on the lights and head back to the house / Or we can take another ride on my big green tractor / We can go slow...
William: "Or make it go faster" (RIGHT!)

Michele: "it really don't matter" (RIGHT!)

William: "Me to hold on to" (RIGHT!)
BAND: We can go to town, but baby if you'd rather / I'll take you for a ride...
Michele: "On my big green tractor." (RIGHT!)

Michele misses one, but William gets all three...

After Round 3
Samantha: 20
Devin: 20
William: 15
Michele: 15

KARAOKE CHALLENGE (2 points per word)

First up is William. He needs three to stay in the game.

- 2006, Josh Turner, "Would You Go With Me"

William gets... all but one for 28 points, giving him 43 and the lead!

Next is Michele. She needs to be perfect to stand a chance.

- 1994, Hootie & the Blowfish, "Only Wanna Be With You"

She sweeps it for 45! Now she's in the lead.

Samantha needs to get 13 to lock in the next round.

- 2006, Keith Urban, "Once in a Lifetime"

Samantha gets... 12 to move to second place with 24 for 44!

Thirteen gives Devin top two. Twelve forces a tiebreaker.

- 2002, Kenny Chesney, "Big Star"

Devin... sweeps for a perfect 50! Second in Singing Bee history. He and Michele are going on to battle for the trophy!


Devin will have the honor on the first song, a Faith Hill song from 2005. Devin... will PLAY.

- 2005, Faith Hill, "Mississippi Girl"

Devin: "'Cause a Mississippi girl don't change her ways / Just 'cause everybody knows her name / Ain't big headed from a little bit of fame / I still like wearing my old ball cap / Riding my kids around piggy back / They might know me all around the world / But, y'all, I'm still a Mississippi girl" (PERFECT!)

Michele needs to nail this to stay alive.

- 1994, Brooks & Dunn, "She's Not The Cheatin' Kind"

Michele: "She's not the cheatin' kind / He she's been." OH! Little stumble costs big. Devin wins it!

Now Devin's batting 1000 right now. He could very well win $10,000. All he has to do is complete five songs correctly. Each one is worth $500 cash. Five is worth $10,000. BUT, miss one and get a strike. Miss three... and the game is over. But you do get to take home any cash you win, so no excuse not to go for it. It's time play... THE FINAL COUNTDOWN!

Song #1: It started off Hey cutie, where ya from? / And then it turned into oh no...

Devin: "What have I done?" That's good!

(2007, Carrie Underwood, "Last Name")

Song #2: I'm sure it'll hit me / When I walk through that door tonight / Yeah I'm gonna miss her / Oh, lookie there...

Devin: "I've got a bite." He's got $1000!

(2001, Brad Paisley, "I'm Gonna Miss Her")

Song #3: Well, you're slim and you're weak / You got the teeth of the hydra upon you / You're dirty, sweet and you're my girl...

Devin: "And airing out your dirty (equine feces)" Umm.... no. It's "Get it on, bang a gong, get it on".

(1985, The Power Station, "Get It On (Bang a Gong)")

$1000 X    
Song #4: Walking through the front door / seeing your black dress hit the floor / honey there sure ain't nothing / like you loving me....

Devin: "All night long." Back on track.

(2009, Chris Young, "Gettin' You Home")

$1500 X    
Song #5: "So let the angels gather / let the music play / Let the preacher get to preachin' / all the 'do you takes...

Devin: "Love is a beautiful thing." So is $2000!

(2008, Phil Vassar, "Love Is a Beautiful Thing")
$2000 X    
Song #5: I want you to want me / I need you to need me...

Devin: "I'd love you to love me." CONFETTI!
