After Round 3
KARAOKE CHALLENGE (2 points per word)
Chris, thanks to that shipwreck of a
performance in Singing with the Enemy, is going first. He needs eight to
take the lead.
- 2009, Justin Moore, "Small Town USA"
Justin Moore is Chris' favorite artist...
It shows. He SWEEPS! He's up to 35. Allie needs 10 to tie for the lead.
- 1975, James Taylor, "How Sweet It Is
(To Be Loved By You)"
Allie missed ONE. That puts her at 43.
Danielle needs that much to tie.
- 1997, Tim McGraw, "Where the Green
Danielle ... delivers the tie for 43.
Harold needs 12 to take the lead and move on.
- 2009, Lady Antebellum, "Need You Now".
Im. PLOSION. Harold gets two, and Allie
and Danielle are moving on to see who is the strongest of the Army
Allie qualified first, so she gets the
honor with this song... and no option. Strange.
- 2002, Phil Vassar, "American Child"
an American child." Extra word! Danielle has a chance.
- 1978, Willie Nelson, "Whiskey River"
drownin' in a whiskey river"... No, it's "Whiskey river, take my
mind". Allie's back in it.
- 1988, Dwight Yoakam with Buck Owens,
"Streets of Bakersfield"
Allie: "If you ever
walk / On the streets of Bakersfield." "Hey, you don't know me,
but you don't like me." That's the lyric. One more chance for
- 1984, Alabama, "Roll On (Eighteen
Danielle: "Roll on
Daddy roll on home"... Nope. "Roll
on highway, roll on along..." TIEBREAKER!
The tiebreaker is from 1965... Eddie
Albert & Eva Gabor. That's Danielle! "I'm gonna PASS it."
- 1965, Eddie Albert & Eva Gabor, "Theme
from Green Acres"
BAND: Greeeeeeeeen acres is the place to be / farm livin' is the life
for me / Land spreadin' out so far and wide / Keep Manhattan / Just give
me that countryside / New York is where I'd rather stay / I get allergic
smelling hay / I just adore a penthouse view...
Allie: ".... keep Manhattan, just give me
that countryside." DANIELLE TAKES IT! For the record, it was
"Darling, I love you, but give me Park Avenue."
So Danielle backs into the title, but can
she take it to the bank? All she has to do is complete five songs
correctly. Each one is worth $500 cash money dollars. 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.
Five, four, three two one... It's time to play...
THE FINAL COUNTDOWN
Oh say does that star spangled / Banner yet wave / O'er the
land of the free...

the brave." If you missed that one, we would've had to kick
you out of the joint.

finger / She's the center of his whole world / And his heart
belongs to that / Sweet little beautiful wonderful...
Danielle: "perfect All

up any way / I got friends in this town / Hey white liar the
truth comes out a little...
Danielle: "At a time."

I fold it up and put it in my shirt / Pick up my gun and get
back to work / and it keeps me driving on waiting on...
"Letters from home." ONE MORE!
(2004, John Michael Montgomery, "Letters from Home")
Now I'm just rolling home / into my lover's arms / This much
I know is true / That God blessed the broken road...

straight to you." $10,000 SWEEP!
