Round 3: SINGING WITH THE ENEMY (5 points per line)

First up, Sonya & Matt.

BAND: I'll bet you've never heard ole Marshal Dillon say / Miss kitty have you ever thought of running away / settling down, would you marry me
Sonya: "She'd of said yes in a... " No.
BAND: If I asked you twice and begged you pretty please / She'd have said yes in a New York minute
Matt: "Even if I wasn't in it..." Dude! Family show!

Sonya: "Just like Dean & Roy" Band, please...
BAND: Just like Gene and Roy / Singing those campfire songs
Matt: "I should've been a cowboy." (CORRECT)

Matt gets two for 10, while Sonya gets one for 5 more. They're tied at 10.

Next is Sunny & John.

- 2003, Alan Jackson & Jimmy Buffett, "It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere"

Sunny: "It's all so hot"... Wrong.

BAND: I think I'll just call it a day / Pour me somethin' tall an' strong...
Sunny: "Give me something to sing along." Umm... No.
BAND: Make it a "Hurricane" before I go insane / It's only half-past twelve but I don't care...
John: "It's five o'clock somewhere." Gimme lyric.

John gets one for 5. Sunny... still blanking.

After round 3:
Sonya: 10
Matt: 10
Sunny: 0
John: 5

Round 4: KARAOKE CHALLENGE (2 points for every missing word)

First up is Sunny with zero.

- 2008, Lady Antebellum, "Love Don't Live Here"

Sunny gets... creative. She has two right for 4 points. She's on the board, but she's out of the game.

John tries to stay in the game with...

- 2006, Trace Adkins, "Ladies Love Country Boys"

John... also creative. He got two right for 4, giving him to 9. Unfortunately, that also means he's going home. So Star Trek... Star Wars... A ninja cares not about these things.

Sonya's next, and this is for control in the Chorus Showdown.

- 1985, Tears for Fears, "Everybody Wants to Rule the World"

Sonya gets a nice ten for 20, giving her 30.

Matt needs to beat 30 to get control in the next round.

- 2002, Rascal Flatts, "Mayberry"

Matt gets six for 12, giving him 22. So it's Sonya vs. Matt in...


Sonya has control in this round. The year and artist... 2006, Sugarland. Sonya plays.

- 2006, Sugarland, "Everyday America"
Sonya: Oh, whoa, every (something)'s dreaming big...

That didn't last long. It was "everybody's dreaming big." Now all Matt has to do is not screw up on this song and the trophy is his.

- 2006, Rodney Atkins, "If You're Going Through Hell"
Matt: If you're going through hell / Keep on movin'...

Close, it was "keep on going". Sonya has another shot.

- 1961, Patsy Cline, "Crazy"
Sonya: I'm crazy for tryin' / Crazy for cryin' / And I'm crazy /For lovin' you. RIGHT!

Matt has one more shot to force a tiebreaker.

- 1977, Kenny Rogers, "Lucille"
Matt: Lucille Lucille... Sorry. Sonya wins it!

But now it's time to play for the money. You have seven songs. Every correct song will give you $500. Get five before you get three strikes, and you win $10,000! But get three strikes, and you leave with whatever money you made.

It's time... for the FINAL COUNTDOWN!

Singers: "Five, four, three two one, it's the Final Countdown." Sorry, folks, but I miss Ray Chew's intro.

Song #1: No shoes, no shirt, no problems / Blues what blues...

Sonya: "I forgot 'em". GOOD!

(2002, Kenny Chesney, "No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems")

Song #2: Yeah, this is my town / Hey! / Where I was born...

Sonya: "Where I was raised." RAISE UP!

(2002, Montgomery Gentry, "My Town")

Song #3: There's a party goin' on right here / A celebration to last throughout the years / So bring your good times...

Sonya: "And your laughter too" YES!

(1980, Kool & the Gang, "Celebration")

Song #4: Ragweed's rockin' on the radio / Free and easy...

Sonya: "Down the road I go." One more!

(2006, Dierks Bentley, "Free and Easy (Down the Road I Go)")

Song #5: Didn't know love could run so deep / Didn't know I'd lose this much sleep / Holdin' you close, chasing that moon / spinning all night / Lovin' just who you are..

Sonya: "Sparks fly in the dark..." Close. It was "flying"

(2005, Sara Evans, "A Real Fine Place to Start")

$2000 X    
Song #6: Lets give them something to talk about / A little mystery to figure out / Lets give them something to talk about

Sonya: "Talk about love." It was HOW about love...

(1991, Bonnie Raitt, "Something to Talk About")

$2000 X X  
Song #7: That's the night that the lights went out in Georgia...

Sonya: "That's the night that they hung an innocent man." WINNER!

(1991, Reba McEntire, "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia")
$10,000 X X  

So in the end, it was the comeback of the week, and all Sonya had to do was remember the words to a Vicki Lawrence remake. Easy, right? Only if you're on the couch. More great music next week. Remember, you don't have to sing it well, just as long as you sing it right. Take us home, Steve.
