|Battle of the Family Bands
| America's Most Musical Family Season Finale
by Chico Alexander
Nick: Friday 8p/7c
Host: Nick Lachey with Ciara, David Dobrik & Debbie Gibson
We started with 30 of the most musical families in North America. Now it's down to the final four representing Arkansas, Nashville, Las Vegas, and Alberta, Canada. At the end of these two hours, one will be named America's Most Musical Family. With that title comes a whole lot of perks - bragging rights, $250,000, and a recording contract with Republic Records.
But first, we have to make one more cut. And here to help the bands out... Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz.
- The Melisizwe Brothers: "Brave" by Sara Bareilles
- The Rees Family: "Twist and Shout" by the Beatles
Midway through the first half of the show, we're blessed to have Blanco Brown ("The Git Up") blaze the stage.
- Mathis Family: "Speechless" by Dan + Shay
- The Sanchez Family: "Party in the USA" by Miley Cyrus
The audience has the final say as to who moves to the finale.
ADVANCING TO THE FINALE
- The Sanchez Family
- The Melisizwe Brothers
- The Rees Family
Unfortunately, Mathis Family have come so far only to come so far. But we have one more round for our bands to state their case. Rob Lewis is back to assist.
- The Rees Family: "We Are Family" by Sister Sledge
- The Melisizwe Brothers: "7 Years" by Lukas Graham
- The Sanchez Family: "On the Floor" by Jennifer Lopez
After taking one final look at the journey this season, the audience must choose a WINNER.
BUT FIRST, our final three deliver a reprise:
- The Sanchez Family: "Turn the Beat Around" by Vicki Sue Robinson
- The Melisizwe Brothers: "All of Me" by John Legend
- The Rees Family: "Walking on Sunshine" by Katrina & the Waves
And now, the answer we've been waiting 12 weeks to hear. Who is America's most musical family?
The winner... of America's Most Musical Family... season 1... and the winner of $250,000 and their own recording contract with Republic Records...
.... THE MELISIZWE BROTHERS!
So a band of brothers from Canada emerge triumphant as America's Most Musical Family.
But the question is... who's next? Stay tuned to this frequency.
Casting for season 2 of America's Most Musical Family is now open at AmericasMostMusicalFamily.com.

Lindsay finds the Daily Double under $800 Money Talks. She bets $1500 on this: in frontier general stores, this was often used as a table or counter; hence "cash on" it to mean payment right away. "What is layaway?" No, it's the barrel, dropping her to $6300 to end the round then and there. Veronica has $2600. Dennis on $800 gets the board to start...

Dennis finds the other under $1600 North, South, East, West. He wagers $4000 on this: you'll find this state in Australa's lower right-hand corner. "What is New South Wales?" RIGHT for $12,800! He ends up with $19,600 to $10,800 for Lindsay. Veronica has $7000.
FINAL JEOPARDY! in "DNA Makes News": in 1993 remains of the Russian royal family killed in 1918 were confirmed by comparing their DNA to this member of the British royal family. Correct response: who is Prince Philip?
