Episode 2.6
February 19

"Life Is a Highway". It was true in 1992. It was true in 2006... and for one contestant, it'll be true tonight as they race toward the Singing Bee championship.


- 2008, Jason Aldean, "She's Country"
BAND: She's country shoot / From her cowboy boots / to her down home roots / She's country / From the song she plays / to the prayers she prays / That's the way...

Jessamyn: "She was raised" Close.
Pete: "She was born and raised" BINGO!

- 2001, Tim McGraw, "Angry All the Time"
BAND: The reasons that I can't stay don't / have a thing to do with being in love / And I understand that lovin' a man / Shouldn't have...
Sandy: "To be this rough." YES!

- 2005, Gretchen Wilson, "All Jacked Up"
BAND: All I really know is that I shouldn't be going / But I'm soaking up the moment / I'm all jacked up / All jacked up / Don't believe I've ever...
Dianna: "Had this much." THAT'S RIGHT.

- 1997, The Verve, "Bittersweet Symphony"
BAND: But I'm here in my mold / I am here in my mold / But I'm a million different people...
Phillip: "From one day to the next." THAT'S FOUR!

Four players... only one champion. Let's play the Bee!

- 1969, Merle Haggard, "Working Man Blues" (a these workin' little blues Sing man of)
Phillip: "Sing a little bit of these blues." They're workin' man blues.

After Round 2

SINGING WITH THE ENEMY (5 points per line)

First, Pete & Sandy...

- 2008, Darius Rucker, "Alright"

BAND: Don't need no five star reservations / I got spaghetti and...
Pete: "A cheap ??? of wine" (A cheap bottle of wine)
BAND: Don't need no concert in the city / I got a stereo...
Sandy: "The best of Patsy Cline" (and the best of Patsy Cline)
BAND: Ain't got no caviar no Dom Perignon / But as far as I can see...
Pete: "I got everything I want" (RIGHT!)
BAND: 'Cause I got a roof over my head / The woman I love..
Sandy: "Laying in my bed" (RIGHT!).
BAND: And it's alright alright / I got shoes under my feet / Forever in her eyes...
Pete: "Staring back at me" (RIGHT!)
BAND: And it's alright alright yeah / I got all I need...
Sandy: "And it's alright by me." (RIGHT!)

Two a piece, ten a piece. Next up, Dianna & Phillip.

- 1991, Alan Jackson, "Don't Rock the Jukebox"

BAND: Before you drop that quarter / Keep one thing in mind / You got a heartbroke hillbilly...
Dianna: "Standing here in line." (RIGHT!)
BAND: I've been and down and lonely...
Phillip: "Since my baby left" (Ever since she left)
BAND: Before you punch that number...
Dianna: "Can I make one request" (Could I make one request)
BAND: Don't rock the jukebox / I wanna hear some Jones / 'Cause my heart ain't ready...
Phillip: "for the Rolling Stones" (RIGHT!)
BAND: I don't feel like rocking...
Dianna: "Since my baby's gone" (RIGHT!)
BAND: So don't rock the jukebox...
Phillip: "Play me a country song." (RIGHT!)

Two more a piece, 10 more a piece.

After Round 3
Pete: 10
Sandy: 15
Dianna: 10
Phillip: 10

KARAOKE CHALLENGE (2 points per word)

First up is Pete. He needs three to take the lead.

- 1989, Hank Williams Jr with Hank William, "There's a Tear in My Beer".

Pete drinks up nine for 18, giving him 28 and the lead.

Dianna is next. She needs nine to tie.

- 2000, Bon Jovi, "It's My Life"

Dianna fist pumps her way to 12 for 24 more and the lead with 34.

Phillip needs lucky 13 to move on to the next round.

- 1990, Dwight Yoakam, "Turn It On, Turn It Up, Turn Me Loose"

Phillip turned it on, turned it up, but it was WAY too loose, giving him two for a total of 14. He WON'T be moving on...

... but will Sandy? She just needs seven.

- 2000, Phil Vassar, "Just Another Day in Paradise"

Sandy needed seven... She got 13 for 26, giving her 41. It's Sandy versus Dianna in... 


Sandy will have the honor on the first song, and the song is from 2006 by Rodney Atkins. Sandy will PLAY.

- 2006, Rodney Atkins, "These Are My People"

Sandy: "These are my people / This is where I come from / We givin' this life everything we got... " It was "WE'RE givin' this life..."

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

- 2004, Keith Urban, "Better Life"

Dianna: "Someday baby / You and I are gonna be the ones / good love's gonna shine" For the want of a word, it was "Good luck's gonna shine."

Sandy wants to redeem herself...

- 1999, Mark Chestnut, "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing"

Sandy: "I don't wanna close my eyes / I don't wanna fall asleep / 'Cause I miss you babe and I don't wanna miss a thing." This is NOT the Aerosmith version. The "babe" is not needed.

Last shot at it for Dianna...

- 1994, Clay Walker, "If I Could Make a Living"

Dianna: "If I could make a livin' out of lovin' you / I'd be a millionaire in a week or two / I'd be doin' what I love / and lovin' what I do / If I could make a livin' out of lovin' you." WINNER!

Dianna upset the leader to be the champion... but now can she get paid for it? 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: There's one in every crowd / Brings the party in us out / Good time Charley in a Harley...

Dianna: "Whiskey bent and hellbound." THAT'S ONE!

(2008, Montgomery Gentry, "One in Every Crowd")

Song #2: I spend most every night / Beneath the light of a neon moon / Now if you lose your one and only...

Dianna: "There's only room here for the lonely". She knew it was "always", not "only."

(1991, Brooks & Dunn, "Neon Moon")

$500 X    
Song #3: You can try to resist / Try to hide from my kiss / But you know but you know that you...

Dianna: "Can't fight the moonlight." Count it!

(2000, LeAnn Rimes, "Can't Fight the Moonlight")

$1000 X    
Song #4: If tomorrow never comes / Will she know how much I loved her / Did I try every way / To show her every day..

Dianna: "That she's my only one." Right and nice!

(1989, Garth Brooks, "If Tomorrow Never Comes")

$1500 X    
Song #5: So good so good I got-a you / I feel nice...

Dianna: "Like sugar and spice." NICE!

(1965, James Brown, "I Got You (I Feel Good)")

$2000 X    
Song #6: Destined to deceive her / he's a wrong kind of paradise / She's gonna know it in a matter of time

Dianna: "That boy was a walkaway Joe". SO CLOSE! It was "just a walkaway Joe"...

(1992, Trisha Yearwood, "Walkaway Joe")

$2000 X X  
Song #7: Strike three / Hold on now where you goin' / He is out / Jimmy's out next in line...

Dianna: "Swing batter batter swing / Batter batter swing.... batter batter swing". WINNER!

(2006, Trace Adkins, "Swing")

$10,000 X X  

Bottom of the ninth... two outs... three on... Dianna hits a home run, and she's tonight MVP with $10,000 and the title of Singing Bee champion!

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