SINGING WITH THE ENEMY (5 points per line)

First, Ashley & Brandi...

- 2006, Rodney Atkins, "Watching You"

Ashley: "All over the place" (And his orange drink covered his lap)
BAND: Then my four year old / Said a four letter word / It started with "S"...
Brandi: "And I shoulda heard" (and I was concerned)

Ashley: "Yeah ain't we dad" (Hey ain't we dad)
BAND: I wanna do everything you do
Brandi: "'Cause I've been watching you" (So I've been watching you)

Ashley and Brandi get one line each for five. Next up, Mollie & Matt.

Mollie: "Why not me" (this country girl's still free)

BAND: Why not me... / Why not me
Mollie: "On a rainy day" (When the nights get cold)
BAND: Why not me when you're growing old
Matt: "Why not me." (RIGHT!)

Matt's got one... Mollie... FAIL.

After Round 3
Ashley: 5
Brandi: 5
Mollie: 0
Matt: 10

KARAOKE CHALLENGE (2 points per word)

First up is Mollie... She's going to need five to take the lead.

- 2004, Gretchen Wilson, "Redneck Woman"

Mollie made up for that big time suckout with a big time sweep! That gives her 30!

Ashley is next. She needs 13 to take the lead.

- 1987, Rick Astley, "Never Gonna Give You Up"

Ashley gets Roll'd. She picks up 13 for the lead and 31.

Brandi needs lucky 13 to tie.

- 1968, Merle Haggard, "Mama Tried".

Brandi tried... and got 14. She's moving on with 33.

Matt needs to get 11 to move on.

- 2003, Pat Green, "Wave on Wave"

Matt needed 11... He got five for 10, giving him 20, which is not enough! It's going to be Brandi and Ashley in...


Brandi will have the honor on the first song, and the song is from 1997 by Tim McGraw. Brandi will PLAY.

- 1997, Tim McGraw, "Just to See You Smile"

Brandi: "Just to see you smile / I'd give anything that you..." It was "I'd DO anything."

This could be Ashley's big chance at the upset...

- 2006, The Wreckers, "Leave the Pieces"

Ashley: "And if I go I don't know"... That's about right. "And it's alright, yeah I'll be fine."

Brandi wants to redeem herself...

- 1976, Waylon Jennings & Willie Nelson, "Good-Hearted Woman"

Brandi: "She's a good hearted woman / In love with a good timin' man / She loves me in spite of my wicked..." "She loves HIM in spite of HIS ways."

Last shot at it for Ashley...

- 1980, Eddie Rabbitt, "Driving My Life Away"

Ashley: "Oooh I'm drivin' my life away / Looking for a better day for me." Better WAY. This is going to come down to a SUDDEN DEATH!

The song is from 2008... by Blake Shelton. That's Ashley. "PLAY."

- 2008, Blake Shelton, "I'll Just Hold On".
BAND: I could taste your kiss on my lips / and I'm wrapped around your finger tips / as I watch the moonlight / dancing on your skin / Your green eyes and the sweet red wine / Go to my head girl every time...
Ashley: "And I get drunk on you." WINNER!

This one went the distance, but Ashley's about to go even farther. All she has to do is complete five songs correctly. Each one is worth $500 cash money. Five is worth $10,000. BUT, miss one and get a strike. Miss three... game over. But you do get to take home any cash you win, so no excuse not to go for it. It's time to play... THE FINAL COUNTDOWN!

Song #1: Well back in 1876 an ol' boy named Bell / Invented a contraption / that we know so well / By the 1950s they're in everybody's home / It's a crazy little thing...

Ashley: "They call the telephone." THAT'S ONE!

(1994, Reba McEntire, "Why Haven't I Heard from You")

Song #2: She drove off with my heart / I've got to let her know / Need in the girl in that little red Rodeo...

Ashley: "Little red Rodeo". No, it was "Texas plates candy apple red Rodeo."

(1997, Collin Raye, "Little Red Rodeo")

$500 X    
Song #3: Oh won't you show me the way everyday / I want you to show me the way oh / I want you..."

Ashley: "Show me the way." It was "Day after day".

(1976, Peter Frampton, "Show Me The Way")

$500 X X  
Song #4: I did her so wrong for so long / Turned my back on her love / Now she's long gone / I did my part...

Ashley: "She played my heart.." GAME OVER

(1993, Brooks & Dunn, "She Used to Be Mine")

$500 X X X

It was "to break her heart". At least she gets the trophy and $500.

Six more people will try to sing it right (because that's all that matters) next week. Play us out, Steve.
