Tonight, six new contestants will "bee" about "A Little Less Talk and a Lot More Action" on their way to $10,000 and the Singing Bee Championship.


- 2007, Luke Bryan, "All My Friends Say"
BAND: And all my friends say / I started shooting doubles / when you walked in / All my friends say I went a little crazy...
Rhonda: "Seeing you with him". GOOD!

- 1972, Elvis Presley, "Burning Love"
BAND: Lord almighty / I feel my temperature rising / higher higher...
Shelley: "It's burning through to my soul." YES!

- 1987, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, "Fishin' in the Dark"
BAND: Down by the river in the full moon light / we'll be falling in love / in the middle of the night
Jocelyn: "where the blue ??? go." Good try...
Michael: "where the green grass grows." Not it.
Scooter: "Just moving slow". THAT'S RIGHT.

- 1998, Eve 6, "Inside Out"
BAND: I would swallow my pride / I would choke on the rinds / But the lack thereof / would leave me empty inside / I would swallow my doubt / turn it inside out find nothing but...
Shasta: "in nothing." Forgot one word.
Jocelyn: "Faith in nothing" THAT's the word.. and THAT'S FOUR!

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

RANDOM SHUFFLE (5 points per lyric)

- 1995, Faith Hill, "Let's Go To Vegas" (let's Vegas and to love go let Hey bet ride it on baby)
Rhonda: "Hey baby let's go to Vegas, bet on love and let it ride." PERFECT! 

- 1979, Mel Tillis, "Coca-Cola Cowboy" (how and don't to I you taught me say care just)
Shelley: "And you taught me how to say I just don't care." Five points!

- 2008, Rihanna, "Disturbia" (thought be your altered think of Better will twice train)
Scooter: "Better think twice, or you'll be...." In Scooter's defense, I do nothing but listen to pop radio, and I STILL wouldn't have gotten it. It was "Better think twice your train of thought will be altered."

- 1984, Reba McEntire, "How Blue" (rest my let body mind my won't 'Cause)
Jocelyn: "'Cause my mind won't let my body rest." There you go.

After Round 2
Rhonda: 5
Shelley: 5
Scooter: 0
Jocelyn: 5

SINGING WITH THE ENEMY (5 points per line)

First, Rhonda & Shelley...

- 2005, Bon Jovi & Jennifer Nettles, "Who Says You Can't Go Home"

BAND: I spent twenty years tryin' / to get outta this place / I was lookin' for somethin' / I couldn't replace / I was runnin' away from...
Rhonda: "The only thing I've ever known" (RIGHT!)
BAND: Like a blind dog without a bone / I was a gypsy lost...
Shelley: "In the Twilight Zone" (RIGHT!)
BAND: I hijacked a rainbow and crashed...
Rhonda: "into a pot of gold" (RIGHT!)
BAND: I been there done that / I ain't looking back...
Shelley: "On this road I've sown" (On the seeds I've sown).
BAND: Savin' dimes spendin' too much time / on the telephone / Who says you can't go home / who says you can't go home / There's only one place... 
Rhonda: "They call me one of their own" (RIGHT!)
BAND: Just a hometown boy born a rollin' stone...
Shelley: "Who says you can't go home." (RIGHT!)

You could see Shelley's eyes glaze over on that last line. Here's your ten. Rhonda, enjoy the 15, don't spend it all in one place. Next up,... Scooter! ... and Jocelyn.

- 2009, Love and Theft, "Runaway"

BAND: It's been a long week / I've got a slow leak in my left front tire / I'm sick of where I work / My boss is such a jerk...
Scooter: "And I'm goin' fired." (Don't care if I get fired)
BAND: My bag's about to break / no money in the bank...
Jocelyn: "And she don't call me anymore." (RIGHT!)
BAND: I'm down to my last drink...
Scooter: "And I don't know this" (It's time to sell my things)
BAND: And pack my bags and never look back / Run a parallel line / with the railroad tracks
Jocelyn: "And make my getaway" (RIGHT!)
BAND: I'll put the pedal to the metal / as the sun goes down / Leave everybody sleeping
Scooter: "In this one-horse town" (In this sleepy town tonight)
BAND: At the break of day...
Jocelyn: "I'll be a runaway." (RIGHT!)

Jocelyn couldn't be any more perfect! As for Scooter... at least he was honest.

After Round 3
Rhonda: 20
Shelley: 15
Scooter: 0
Jocelyn: 20

KARAOKE CHALLENGE (2 points per word)

First up is Scooter. He needs ... all the help he can get.

- 2004, Montgomery Gentry, "If You Ever Stop Loving Me".

Scooter gets on the board! Too bad it's only with nine for 18. Not enough..

Shelley is next. She needs three to take the lead

- 1979, The Bellamy Brothers, "If I Said You Have a Beautiful Body, Would You Hold It Against Me"

Break out the brooms, we've got ourselves a SWEEP! Shelley's now up to 45.

Rhonda needs to beat 45 to move on. Lucky 13 will do it.

- 1962, Flatt & Scruggs, "The Ballad of Jed Clampett"

She's obviously a fan of the Beverly Hillbillies, getting up to 48 for her 14.

Jocelyn needs 13 to move on.

- 1973, Lynyrd Skynyrd, "Gimme Three Steps"

Jocelyn needed 13... She got seven. Not enough. It's going to be Rhonda and Shelley in...


Rhonda will have the honor on the first song, and the song is from 1993 by Garth Brooks. Rhonda will PLAY.

- 1993, Garth Brooks, "Standing Outside the Fire"

Rhonda: "Standing outside the fire / Standing outside the fire / Life is not tried it is merely survived / When you're standing outside the fire." IF! IF!

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

- 2003, Brooks & Dunn, "Red Dirt Road"

Shelley: "It's where I drank my first beer / It's where I found Jesus / Where I wrecked my first car / I tore it all to pieces / I've learned the path to heaven..." I... Not "I've", "I".

Rhonda gets another shot at it.

- 1990, Alan Jackson, "Here in the Real World"

Rhonda: "But here in the real world / It's not that easy at all / 'Cause when hearts get broken / It's real tears that fall / And darlin' it's sad but true / And the one thing I've learned from you...". BUT! BUT!

Last shot at it for Shelley...

- 1999, George Strait, "Write This Down"

Shelley: "Baby write this down / Take a little note / to remind me..." It was "to remind you"... TIEBREAKER!

TIEBREAKER.... 2006... Kellie Pickler. Shelley, that's you. "Play."

- 2006, Kellie Pickler, "Red High Heels"
BAND: Well you said watch yourself baby yeah / You know the deal / Nobody holds a candle to me / in my red high heels / Oh you can watch me walk / If you want to want to / I bet you want me back now / don't you don't you...
Shelley: "I'm about to show you / just how missin' me feels..." WINNER!

Shelley went the distance on that one, but can she make it work for cash money? 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: To the waiter at the restaurant / You're just another tip / To the guy at the ice cream shop...

Shelley: "You're just another dip." THAT'S ONE!

(2005, Brad Paisley, "The World")

Song #2: Come to my window / Crawl inside wait by the light of the moon / Come to my window...

Shelley: "I'll be home soon". GOT IT!

(1993, Melissa Etheridge, "Come To My Window")

Song #3: Spent the whole day lyin' on a beach / wearin' nothin' but a smile / playin' kissy kissy smoochy smoochy / talkin' mooshy mooshy 'bout nothin' / Man I'm think I'm on somethin' / Because I feel just like a kid again...

Shelley: "I got a brand new girlfriend." Ding.

(2006, Steve Holy, "Brand New Girlfriend")

Song #4: Girl put your records on / Tell me your favorite song / You go ahead...

Shelley: "Let your hair down." ONE MORE!

(2006, Corinne Bailey Rae, "Put Your Records On")

Song #5: You're gonna miss this / You're gonna want this back / You're gonna wish these days...

Shelley: "Hadn't gone by so fast." WINNER!!!

(2007, Trace Adkins, "You're Gonna Miss This")


Shelley made the Final Countdown look like child's play going five for five for $10,000 and the trophy!

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