Jason: "Five miles an hour." WIN!
But now the hard part begins. He's five
songs away from $10,000, but if he gets three strikes, it's all over but
the $500 for each correct song. But Jason's a good player, I think he
has what it takes to beat.... THE FINAL COUNTDOWN!

it." THREE FOR THREE!

At first I was afraid / I was petrified / Kept thinking I
could never live without you...
Jason: "By my side" WINNER!

possibly... Best Singing Bee Champion... EVER. EVER...
Obviously the next six
players are going to have a lot to live up to...
