Taylore gets four for 8, giving her 18.

Next is Jeremy, hoping to knock Taylore out with...

- 1999, Toby Keith, "How Do You Like Me Now?"

This is for control of the Chorus Showdown.

- 2007, Brooks & Dunn feat. Reba McEntire, "Cowgirls Don't Cry"

Mark gets seven for 14, giving him 34, which means that Jeremy will have control in...

ROUND 5: Chorus Showdown.

Because Jeremy scored the highest, he will get control over a song by Johnny Cash from 1963. He plays.

- 1963, Johnny Cash, "Ring of Fire"
Jeremy: "I fell into a burning ring of fire / it went down down down..." It was "I went down".

Mark can win here...

- 1975, KC & the Sunshine Band, "Get Down Tonight"
Mark: "Do a little dance / make a little love / Get down tonight / Get down tonight / Do a little dance / make a little love / Get down tonight / Get down tonight."

.... WINNER!

And now that you're a winner, Mark, it's time to play for cash 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!

Song #1: Well there's gone for the day / and gone for the night / an' gone for the rest of your dog-gone life / Is it whiskey night / or just a couple of beers / I mean what kinda gone...
