Episode 9
August 15

One of the bright spots on NBC's game show schedule not named "Deal or No Deal" made a successful return to CMT, and now we're going to try and cap it with TWO $10,000 wins.

First up, six people will "Thank God I'm a Country Boy."

ROUND 1: Pick Four.

- 2001, Brooks & Dunn, "Only in America"
BAND: Only in America / Dreaming in red white and blue / Only in America...
Travon: "Dreamin' havin' some fun." No, that's not fun.
Jason: "we dream as big as we want to." Close...
Scott: "Where we dream as big as we want to." BINGO!

- 1990, Travis Tritt, "I'm Gonna Be Somebody"
BAND: I'm gonna be somebody / One of these days I'm gonna break these chains / I'm gonna be somebody someday...
Leah: "And I'm gonna go to." No, you're going home.
Carrie: "You can bet your hard-earned dollar I will." YOU WILL!

- 1983, Cyndi Lauper, "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun"
BAND: I come home in the morning light / My mother says when you gonna live your life right...
Amanda: "Da da da da da da da da..." That couldn't be any more wrong.
Travon: "Girls just wanna have." Not yet.
Jason: "Oh mama, dear, we're not the fortunate ones" GOT IT!

One more.

- 1982, A Flock of Seagulls, "I Ran"
BAND: I walk along the avenue / I never thought I'd meet...
Leah: "A girl like you." We have four!

And the first part of the BEE finale is in full effect! Let's meet the players...

After Round 2:

Carrie: 0
Jason: 5
Leah: 0

ROUND 3: Singing With the Enemy (5 points per line)

First is Scott & Carrie...

- 2005, Joe Nichols, "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off"

BAND: I told her put an extra layer on / I know what happens...
Scott:  "When she drinks Patron" (CORRECT)
BAND: Her closet's missing...
Carrie: "half the clothes she bought" (things)
BAND: Yeah Tequila makes her clothes fall off / She’ll start by kickin' out of her shoes
Scott: "Drop an earring in the sink" (Lose an earring in her drink)
BAND: Leave her jacket in the bathroom stall
Carrie: "Drop a contact down the sink." (CORRECT)
BAND: Them pantyhose ain't gonna last too long...
Scott: "If the DJ puts Bon Jovi on" (CORRECT)
BAND: She might come home in a tablecloth...
Carrie: "'Cause tequila makes her clothes fall off." (Yeah).

Scott picks up 10, while Carrie takes 5.

Next is the Miracle man and Leah.

- 1984, Lee Greenwood, "God Bless the USA"

BAND: From the lakes of Minnesota / to the hills of Tennessee / Across the plains of Texas...
Jason: "from sea to shining sea" (CORRECT)
BAND: From Detroit down to Houston / and New York to LA / well There's pride in every American heart
Leah: "And this is why we say" (and it's time we stand and say)
BAND: That I'm proud to be an American...
Jason: "where at least I know I'm free" (CORRECT)
BAND: And I won't forget the men who died...
Leah: "who gave that right to me" (CORRECT)
BAND: And I gladly stand up next to you...
Jason: and defend her still today (PERFECT!)
BAND: 'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land...
Leah: "God Bless the USA" (CORRECT)

If Leah didn't get that last line, she would've been run out of town. She gets 10, Jason gets 15.

After Round 2:
Scott: 10
Carrie: 5
Jason: 20
Leah: 10

ROUND 4: Karaoke Challenge (2 points per word)

Carrie needs at least three words to stay alive.

- 2004, Kenny Chesney, "I Go Back"

Carrie gets... 12 for 24, giving her 29 and the lead RIGHT NOW.

Scott needs six to stay in the game.

- 1976, ABBA, "Dancing Queen"

He gets ... nine for 18, giving him 28.

Leah needs 10 for the lead.

- 1993, Toby Keith, "A Little Less Time, A Little More Action"

Leah gets... 5. Ten gives her 20, which is (Tomarken) NOT ENOUGH! (/Tomarken)

Jason needs four to tie and five to take the lead.

1993, Patty Loveless, "Blame It On Your Heart"

Jason... COMPLETES THE SWEEP for 50! That's the first sweep in Singing Bee history!

ROUND 5: Chorus Showdown

Jason leads going into the round, so he gets the honor. The first song is from 1983 by the Oak Ridge Boys. He passes.

- 1983, Oak Ridge Boys, "American Made".
Carrie: "My baby is American Made / From California to..." No, it was "Born and bred in the USA."


- 2006, Taylor Swift, "Picture to Burn"
Jason: "I hate that stupid old pickup truck / you never let me drive / You're a redneck heartbreak / Really fell in line yeah." OH! It was "Who's really bad at lying."

This is Carrie's big shot.

- 2008, Jimmy Wayne, "Do You Believe Me Now"
Carrie: "So do you believe me now? / I guess I really wasn't that crazy / and I knew what I was talkin' 'bout / 'Cause every time the sun goes down" No cause...

Jason has one more chance...

- 2000, Steve Holy, "Good Morning Beautiful"
Jason: "Good morning beautiful / How was your night / Mine was wonderful / With you by my side / Then I open my eyes" It was "and when I open my eyes".

We're going to Sudden Death! The subject: a 2006 Craig Morgan song... Jason fires... and plays.

- 2006, Craig Morgan, "International Harvester"
BAND: I'm the son of a third generation farmer / I've been married 10 years to the farmer's daughter / I'm a God fearin' hard workin' combine driver / Hoggin' up the road on my p-p-p-p-plower / Chug a lug a luggin'...
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!

Song #1: Girl your memory / won't ever haunt me / Cause I don't love you / And now if you'll buy that / I got some...

Jason: "Ocean front property in Arizona" And we're off!

(1987, George Strait, "Ocean Front Property")

Song #2: I asked him when it sank in / That this might really be the real end / How's it hit you / When you get that kind of news / Man whatcha do / He said...

Jason: "I went skydiving." YES!

(2004, Tim McGraw, "Live Like You Were Dying")

Song #3: Blank stares at blank pages / No easy way to say this / You mean well but you make this / Hard on me / I'm not gonna write you a love song...

Jason: "'Cause you asked for it." THREE FOR THREE!

(2007, Sara Bareilles, "Love Song")

Song #4: It's the way you love me / It's a feeling like this / It's centrifugal motion...

Jason: "It's perpetual bliss." WOW!

(1998, Faith Hill, "This Kiss")

Song #5: At first I was afraid / I was petrified / Kept thinking I could never live without you...

Jason: "By my side" WINNER!

(1978, Gloria Gaynor, "I Will Survive")


And quite possibly... Best Singing Bee Champion... EVER. EVER...

Obviously the next six players are going to have a lot to live up to...
