  1. The judges take their seats and we’re off for the second night of blinds and Kelly and Nick banter over blocking each other.


    Our first artist of the night is Arei Moon and she’s from Boston, MA. She’s a first generation American. She had an opportunity to open for LL Cool J when she was 12 and that started her love of music. She is going to perform Miss Independent by Kelly Clarkson. John looks down at Kelly. Nick turns and he blocks Kelly. Kelly turns right behind Nick. Arei is finishing the song and Kelly has just noticed she is blocked. Arei is a 2-chair turn, but she will be joining team Nick!


    John welcomes Arei to The Voice and Kelly says she didn’t notice until the end! Arei introduces herself. John says Nick effectively used his block. Kelly wants a chance to talk since she got blocked. She says the fact she chose that version of the song means that she has fire. She did so good. John’s favorite part of the performance was the higher notes and she electrified the whole room. Nick says what a voice! He can’t wait to get to know what inspires her. Nick wants to meet her family and they are brought out to the stage. Kelly greets them and Nick des as well.


    Next we hear an artist take the stage and this is their first audition and they don’t really perform. They perform Soul Sister by Train and the judges listen carefully. Blake seems interested and he looks down at the other judges. Blake hits his button and turns and we meet Levi Watkins. Levi is a 1-chair turn!


    Blake is excited. Blake says he had to work hard to not react when he turned around. Kelly thought Levi was a female in her twenties. Kelly says Levi has a really cool vibe. Nick says they have a really developed voice. Levi is the youngest of four sons. He plays guitar, mandolin, drums, and he’s from Birmingham, AL. He mows lawns with his older brother. He finds a lot of joy in music. Blake says that was an incredible vocal and what a cool version of that song. John loved how interesting and inventive his intro was. He put his stamp on the song. Kelly says Blake is so lucky.


    Cassidy Lee is up next and she’s from Jacksonville, FL. She got a guitar when she was 12 and she started singing at a bonfire and that’s when her parents realized she could sing. Her dad helped get her started in music and worked with her. Her father passed away in 2017. Cassidy takes the stage and plays guitar and sings Gold Dust Woman by Fleetwood Mac. The judges are all dancing and listening closely. She does not get a chair turn.


    Blake asks Cassidy to introduce herself. She was a big fan of the Jonas brothers. John says Nick could have turned for her and made her life. He asks what her favorite song is and she says Please Be Mine. Nick says she carries all the emotion a songwriter needs, and she should pick a song that allows her to do that. Kelly says she has a really cool tone and she’s really talented.    


    The next artist steps on stage and begins their performance and John says this is my jam! The artist is singing Weak by SWV. John hits his button and we meet Zach Day. Kelly finally hits her button to turn. Kelly is shocked. Zach is a 2-chair turn!


    John says amazing! Kelly says you’re white! Zach introduces himself and he’s from Stearns, KY. He was raised on a farm in a really small town. He’s never fit in living in his small town, but his family and friends are very supportive. He performs at weddings and coffee shops and he’s so happy to be here. Nick says he’s excited for him. Kelly says she loved his voice. His runs were incredibly cool and impressive and she’d love to work with him. John says impressive is not the adjective we use for the performance he just had. He says mind blowing, other worldly, amazing, stunning. He’s so excited to coach him. Blake thinks that was an incredible performance.


    Blake says Zach, by the power vested in me by NBC, who do you pick as your coach? Zach says he thinks he’s going to go with John!


    Our next artist is Chelle from Bargersville, IN. She collects rocks. Her favorite rock is a geode because it looks ugly, but then you crack it open and it’s beautiful crystals on the inside. She’s an introvert, but music was a relief for her. She takes the stage and performs idontwannabeyouanymore by Billie Eilish. Blake immediately hits his button. Nick hits his button a bit later. Kelly hits her button at the end. Chelle is a 3-chair turn.


    Nick says Chelle’s voice hit him and made him emotional which is hard to do. Nick says she is the kind of singer he would die to write songs for. Nick says they are probably the logical choice, but he’s fresh blood and he’s eager to dive in with her and help her win. Kelly says she was her age and over thought everything. She says quit trying to be perfect and she just needs to let go. Blake says she had incredible instincts and he thinks she had perfect pitch, which they don’t hear often on the show. Blake says Nick started in movies and Kelly is a talk show host, but he started in music and he’s won the show six times and lives and dies by music. Nick says if he had read Wikipedia, he would have seen that he started on Broadway when he was 8. He believes there’s an artist with in her that needs uplifting.


    John says well Chelle, who do you pick as your coach? Blake does his finger point and Chelle giggles and says she thinks she’s going to have to go with…Kelly! Chelle brought rocks for each of the judges. She gives Nick limestone, because it’s the strongest rock out there. She got John marble because it’s so smooth. She got Kelly amethyst because she’s so beautiful. For Blake she got fool’s gold.


    Our final artist of the night is Toneisha Harris and she is from Roswell, GA. Her family traveled the east coast and sing gospel. She wasn’t allowed to listen to other music and she had to sneak listening to Anita Baker and Whitney Houston. Her son was 12 and diagnosed with cancer. She was supposed to audition for The Voice but she put everything on hold. He was on treatment for three and a half years and he is doing well. He’s a full time college student and she’s grateful that he’s here. She takes the stage and performs I Want to Know What Love Is by Foreigner. John hits his button when she gets to the chorus. Nick hits his button. Blake hits his button. Kelly is the last to go. Toneisha is a 4-chair turn!


    Nick says the runs were all perfect and there wasn’t one note out of tune and Toneisha was phenomenal. He’d be honored to work with her. Kelly says her voice is a blessing. Kelly says she’s so glad she’s here. Blake says she was incredible. He was a coach when she was supposed to audition and experience goes a long way. John says she has something really special and she doesn’t need any of them to do well on the show. He’d like the opportunity to work with her.


    Nick says it’s decision time for Toneisha. Who does she pick as her coach? Toneisha says she thought about this moment and she doesn’t know what to do. She says you know what? I’m actually going to pick Blake.

  2. Season of 18 of The Voice is about to begin now! The four judges this season are Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, John Legend, and Nick Jonas.


    Our first artist is taking the stage and his name is Todd Tilgham and he performs We’ve Got Tonight by Kenny Rogers and Sheena Easton. Nick immediately hits his button with Blake and Kelly very quickly behind. John hits his button at the end of the chorus. Todd is a 4-chair turn!


    Todd is from Mississippi and he’s been married for 20 years and he has 8 kids with 2 of them adopted. He says Meridian, MS where he’s from offers very little musically. John loves his spirit from his performance. Todd says he’s a pastor from a church. Nick says he’s a pastor’s kid. Joe and Todd sing a gospel song. Kelly says she sang in a church too and she has 4 kids and it’s hard parenting and trying to do this too. Blake loves his voice and his range and he has a great hop. Blake says he’s so amped up and it reminds him why he wants to continue as a coach.


    John says they all love him, none more than John, but it’s time to pick a coach. Who does he pick as a coach? Todd says because he thinks they will relate with their personalities…so he picks Blake!


    Nelson Cade III is next and he’s from Anaheim, CA. He has performed in a local club and Stevie Wonder was there and wanted to perform with him and we see the clip. Nelson takes the stage with his guitar and plays Pride and Joy by Stevie Ray Vaughn. John immediately hits his button and has used his block. Kelly hits a moment later and turns. Nick turns right after Kelly and sees he’s been blocked. Blake hits his button. Nelson is a 4-chair turn but may not select Nick as his coach.


    Nelson introduces himself and Nick says he can’t say much because he’s been blocked because of John. He says he’s jealous that he can’t fight over him. He says he wrote star and wow on his notepad and he could win this competition. John says he turned quickly. John says wow! You are a star! He says his voice has a raspiness and a golden honey-dipped vibe. He says it rocks and has a blues vibe. They talk about Stevie Wonder and John says he could reunite them.


    Kelly says she loves Nelson’s vibe and spirit and his personality will shine through on the show. Blake says the intro was such an amazing guitar part and he wasn’t really sure what his lane is, but he could run the gamut and he’ll have a heck of a run on the show.


    Nick says we love your smile and your voice, Nelson who do you pick as your coach. Nelson says he has to pick a personal hero. He started off as a classically trained pianist so he has to pick John Legend!


    The next artist is Tate Brusa and he’s from Salt Lake City, UT. He’s fangirling over Nick. He performs Perfect by Ed Sheeran. Nick hits his button right towards the end of his performance with Blake right behind.


    Tate introduces himself and Blake says he thought that was an incredible performance and he was trying to play it cool until Nick turned. John says Tate has the wily veteran and the new guy Nick. John thinks Nick would have a lot of great advice for him. Kelly says she could tell he was young and there’s room to advance to. She thinks he’ll do well with both. Nick says he wrote the word fight because he could hear the fight in his voice and he would have a good time coach with him.


    Nick goes up to the stage and and takes his guitar and begins coaching Tate on posture and trying to use the vowel sounds and opening up a bit more. Nick then plays while Tate sings. Blake says he feels like he’s at a disadvantage and he has someone bring him a puppy. Blake says if Tate doesn’t choose him as his coach, that puppy is going to go straight back to the animal shelter. He says he’s been doing this show for…Nick interrupts and says what is wrong with you?


    John asks Tate if he picks a coach…or the dog? Tate says sorry Blake, I have to go with Nick!


    Carson goes to see Taylor Green from Los Angeles, CA and she works at a show with her brother that repairs shoes. She’s worked a lot of odd jobs to give herself a chance to make it. She’s going to perform Issues by Julia Michaels. Kelly hits her button pretty early. Nick turns after the chorus. John is dancing in his seat. Taylor is a 2-chair turn.


    Blake asks where Taylor is from and John loves that her shoes and her hair and last name are coordinated. She likes how she did her melodies. Nick asks who her musical icons are and she says Mariah. Nick says as soon as he heard her hit the high notes he knew she would do well. He’d love to be her teammate in this competition. Kelly says her whispery stuff was very pretty and it shows she had control and she can work with her on supporting the higher notes. Kelly has a blue jacket for Team Kelly. Nick says he can get her a green jacket. Kelly says she’s super talented.


    Blake says ok Taylor, who do you pick as your coach? Taylor hesitates and Carson asks her family who she’s going to pick and a few say Kelly, but one thinks she’ll pick Nick. Kelly says she has Mariah’s entire discography, but no pressure. Taylor says she’s going to go with…Kelly!


    Ashley Plath is next and she’s from Middletown, NJ and she’s a meter reader. She’s also in a duo called Nick and Ashley. She takes the stage and performs Baby It’s You by The Beatles. Kelly says she was close. Kelly says she has a huge range, but she hesitated because it wasn’t consistent. There were perfect little moments, but it wasn’t connected. Nick says her control is incredible and range is awesome and maybe she should pick a better song to show that off. John says she was so close and she didn’t seem like she was in her zone until later in the song.


    Darious Lyles is our next artist and he’s from Chicago, IL. His mother was a hair stylist and his dad was a pastor. He found out he was adopted when he was 18. He lost both of his adoptive parents in the last four years and his biological mother is there for him. He’s going to perform How Do You Sleep by Sam Smith. Kelly says nice and John hits his button with Kelly right behind. Darious is a 2-chair turn!


    Blake congratulates Darious and says he didn’t hit his button because he could tell there was a home for him on one of the other two teams. John says he loved his low range and he did some tight runs. He had a few pitch problems, but a good coach can help him with that. Nick asked if he ever thought he’d be right here right now? Kelly says most singers have runs that go down and his went up and she thought it was really tasteful.


    Blake asks Darious who are you going to pick as your coach? Kelly says she has really cute jackets. Darious says he’s going to pick…John!


    Megan Danielle and she’s from Douglasville, GA. She’s a waitress and she works with her mom, her grandmother, and her sister. She’s done small open mic nights and she’s never been on a plane before this so this is her biggest performance. She takes the stage and sings Remedy by Adele. Kelly notes she has good control. Kelly moves to hit her button and hesitates and then hits her button. Nick looks like he wants to turn, but then he doesn’t hit his button. Megan is a 1-chair turn.


    Kelly says she doesn’t know what’s wrong with them. Megan introduces herself and she says Kelly is one of her musical influences. Kelly says she thought she deserved four chairs. She says her tone is incredible. Megan says she’s disappointed in Blake. Kelly can’t wait to work with her. Nick thought she was phenomenal and he is wondering how she’s going to balance working, high school, and The Voice. He says it’s a lot of work and he hopes she doesn’t make some of the mistakes he did and she should enjoy every moment right now.


    John says he loves the tone of her voice, the growl in it, the twang in it, he thought it was cool. He thinks she’ll benefit greatly from being coached by Kelly. Blake says Megan sounded like someone who thought of him as second best. He really does love her voice and he thinks she’ll do great on the show and he thinks she has a great coach. Kelly says she is so excited to work with her.


    Next, Chrissy Joly is up and she’s from Brooklyn, NY. Her father is the reason she got into music. Her parents were born in Haiti. Her father left their family shortly after they arrived here and moved to Atlanta and started a new family. She performs Don’t Let Me Down by The Chainsmokers. She did not get a chair turn.


    Chrissy introduces herself. Kelly says there were parts that were pitchy and that’s what kept her from pressing her button. Nick says control was lost because she was nervous. John says she has a powerful voice and her tone is gorgeous, but she was pitchy in the lower parts. He thinks the voice she has is special.


    Our next artist is on stage and sings Jukebox Here by Foreigner. John hits his button and we see Todd Michael Hall. Blake hits his button and says he’s going in. Todd is a 2-chair turn. Nick says he pushed himself. Kelly says she thought he was incredible. Her mind was blown the entire time. Kelly think he could nail Ann Wilson.


    Blake says he didn’t choose rock because he sounds like he does. He says Todd is incredible and that took him back to the hair bands and a direct path to the finale. John says he was hitting the high notes in the stratosphere and he hit the low notes too. He says that was impressive. Blake says his first two albums were Twisted Sister and Ted Nugent. He says Todd likes to rock and he likes to party, so let’s put it together. John says Blake has never beat him on the show. He thinks he can win the show together.


    Nick says who do you pick as your coach? Todd says they are making it tough on him. John says he turned for him first and Blake says he turned for him most recently. Todd thinks he’s going to go with Blake!


    Next we have Emily Bass and she’s from Magnolia, TX and she was on last season. She’s a sketch artist and she drew all the coaches. She’s worked hard in order to come back. She takes the stage and sings Love Yourself by Justin Bieber. Kelly says cool. Blake seems like he wants to hit his button. Emily does not get a chair turn.


    Emily introduces herself and says she drew them last season and her sister has something for Nick. John says sometimes they can tell when someone is young and the polish isn’t there, but that doesn’t mean it will not be there. Kelly says she’s so young and please don’t let this discourage her dream. Nick says this is the toughest part of this job and he knows it hurts, but please don’t get discouraged. Nick says he’s a notoriously bad drawer but he drew a picture for her.


    Next up is Joanna Serenko and she’s from St. Louis, MO. Her mom and grandmother are nurses and she thought she might be, but she is happier in music. She is closest to her mom and she has some good friends who support her. She performs at a club called Blueberry Hill where Ed Sheeran and John Legend have performed. She likes to put her own spin on things. She takes the stage and sings All My Loving by The Beatles. John and Kelly immediately hit their buttons and Nick is right behind. Blake listens intently and finally hits his button. Joanna is a 4-chair turn!


    Blake doesn’t know what season they’ve heard such an effortless, powerful vocal as Joanna, and he had to hit his button for someone that good. John says she gave them chills and it’s very surprising she’s only 18 and she had such control. He hopes he can be her coach. Nick has to agree with Blake, but she blew him away. It was effortless and thanks her for letting him hear her sing. Kelly says she has a great voice, one that you want to listen to on a rainy day with a glass of wine. Maybe not her.


    Blake asks who she picks as her coach and Nick says he has something to say. He says he wants to fight for her. He wants her on his team and he’s new and has something to prove and he wants to fight for her. Blake says it’s time. Joanna takes a deep breath and she picks…Team Nick!

  3. Tonight, we will meet Group B for The Masked Singer! We’ll meet Banana, Frog, Elephant, Kitty, Mouse, and Taco.


    Kicking off Group B is the frog whose strength is leg for days and weakness is warts. Frog’s clue package: Newsflash: my metamorpohisis has been anything but typical. He started as fast as a lightning bolt and he never had a chance to evolve his image and do it his way. He was slithering with the big frogs from jump jump,  and he had to fit in to survive. But now he can write his own masterpiece, showing this new side gives him butterflies in his stomach. He’s about to drop the hammer and sing his face off. The clues we seen was a 1996 Olympic poster, hush puppies, $106, and we see a lightning bolt.


    Frog sings U Can’t Touch This by MC Hammer. The judges have noticed he is a little guy. Jenny says who is this?!? Robin says that was teribbit. Frogetaboutit. He killed the dance moves, he killed the rap. At first he was thinking it might see someone older, but he sees young knees. Frog says he feels free baby and he came to win it all.


    Jenny says there was a poster of the 1996 olympics in the clue package and he thinks maybe Michael Johnson. Ken says Carl Lewis can sing. Nicole doesn’t think it’s an athlete and she feels like it’s someone she knows. But she doesn’t know who it is. Nicole suggests Ray J. She saw some hush puppies in the clue package and Ray J is from Mississippi.


    And now it’s the Elephant and his strengths are thick skin and weakness is tight spaces. Elephant’s clue package: Here’s the story of how I became the biggest animal in the kingdom. I was a calf when I found my calling, and with hard work turned my passion into a one man show. Stop! He went from canvasing park benches and took charge of leading a massive movement, even parading through white houses. And now I’m ramping up to a new calling, so to sum it all, go risk it all for what you love and what everyone says is irrelevant. The clues we seen were a bicycle poster, a pink rose, drums, and two bluejays.


    Elephant takes the stage and performs Friday, I’m in Love by The Cure. Elephant says he doesn’t do dance choreographer at all, but the costume and mask gives him the confidence to go for it. Jenny feels like he’s courageous and brave and his permance gave her confidence.


    Jenny seen the bicycle poster, maybe tour de France, maybe Lance Armstrong? Nicole seen some drums and bicycle and maybe Travis Barker or Tommy Lee. Ken says maybe a candidate who ran for president and dropped out, maybe Beto Rourke.


    Next up is Kitty and her strengths are 9 lives and her weaknesses are hair balls. Kitty’s clue package: In all my wildest dreams, I never imagined I’d be here, where I feel at home among the weird and the wonderful. It’s almost like the show was made for me. A little bit of heaven where I can wipe the slate clean as the purest snow. Sometimes it feels lonely because people don’t think of me as the person ive become, but the person I once was. But now under these lights among the cream of the crop, I get to start from scratch. And just like a kitty will always find a way to nuzzle into your heart. Tonight, I’m going for high drama while I show you why I’m the pick of the litter. We see references to black and white old style movies, a telescope, and pirates movie in black and white, and rose.


    Kitty takes the stage and sings Dangerous Woman by Ariana Grande. Jenny says she is a singer. Robin says she’s already a fan favorite, she did a great job with the vocals and she moved great. Ken says this is a fun batch of contestants. Kitty says she is being somebody no one has ever seen before who has always been inside of her. It’s great! Nicole was getting Burlesque vibes and she’s thinking Julianne Hough or maybe Paris Hilton. Robin says she’s been mostly known for one thing. Ken suggests Nicole Ritchie. Jenny says where do you get the stage fighting and pirates and wizard? She has no idea who she is.


    Taco is out next and his strengths are beefy and his weaknesses are can cause indigestion. Jenny says he dances a bit like an older guy. Taco’s clue package: Being the comfort food I am, I’ve been a comfort for part of your lives for decades. He’s got plenty of seasoning and he’s in a good place, but his routine can get a bit mild, so he’s here to bust out of the buffet and spice things up to enchiladas and beyond. Here he goes as fast as he can. He wants to be the last mask standing, he just hopes he doesn’t fall apart up there. Time for taco Wednesday. We seen VHS tapes, an anchor, a Rubik’s cube, and a trolley.  


    Taco takes the stage and performs Fly Me to the Moon by Frank Sinatra. Jenny says Taco can sing! Nicole says she feels like she should know that voice, but she doesn’t know who they are. That was beautiful and effortless. Taco says this is how he dresses normally. The weirdest thing about this experience is being ignored because they don’t know who he is. For the first time he feels…invisible.


    Nicole says they’ve been around for a minute and decades, maybe Regis Philbin. Jenny says he’s been comforting people for decades. Ken thinks it’s an idol of his, he thinks is Martin Short. Robin thinks the video tapes are an important clue, maybe funniest home videos and maybe it’s Bob Saget.


    The mouse is next and her strengths are mighty and her weaknesses are cheese. Mouse’s clue package: Just like a mouse, she’s small and cute. Don’t let her size fool you because her presence is larger than life. She’s always been a leader in her field. Really. I wrote the playbook. But as much as she loves calling the shots and showing everyone who’s boss, she loves having a walk on role to play. They say don’t sweat the small stuff, but now that she’s putting herself in, you should because she never accepts anything less than gold. So to all my competitors, you better watch out. We seen jerseys with the numbers 1979, it was on a football field and had lots of football references. There was a bang bang formation, and references to gold.


    Mouse sings Get Here by Oletta Adams. Nicole says the tone, the texture, so graceful. She thinks they’re in the presence of greatness. Mouse says not being able to talk is different and she’s a chatter box and she can’t talk to anybody! Nicole seen a clue about a leader in her field and she’s thinking Darlene Love. Robin noticed the gold and the reference to Olympics, so maybe Gabby Douglas or Dionne Warwick. Ken thinks we’re getting fooled. He thinks they are someone who is good at doing impressions and she thinks its Maya Rudolph.


    The last singer is Banana and his strengths are splits and his weaknesses are brown spots. The judges notice he’s tall. Banana’s clue package: Oh no! He’s late for the stage! He can’t believe he overdid it last night. You’d think this was his first rodeo. He’s a banana because he’s tough on the outside, but a total smoothie on the inside and a hoot to have at parties. He can’t wait to peel back his layers and show he can use his voice in any environment. He just wants to see you smile. There was a cowboy hat in the clue package and lots of hangover references.


    Banana sings A Little Less Conversation by Elvis Presley. Ken says this is what the show is all about, having energy and fun. He reminds him of the White Tiger. Banana says he didn’t always want to be a banana. His kid, he’s getting ready to work out, his kid hands him a banana and here he is.


    Jenny says she saw the blue collar and she saw the cowboy hat. There’s a comedian on the tour Bill Engvall. Nicole was picking up on The Hangover references and she’s thinking about Ed Helms. Ken says Ed is from Georgia. Robin says the blowfish stood out to him and he says he was a hoot at parties and he thinks it was Darius Rucker.


    It’s time to vote! One artist will be unmasked. The artist with the least amount of votes is…The Elephant!


    Time for final guesses! Jenny says based off the clue packages, there was a big bicycle ad, maybe an activist for cancer, been to the White House. Lance Armstrong. Ken thinks it’s someone who led a massive movement and someone who ran for president. Ken thinks Beto O’ Rourke. Nicole originally because of the drummer she was thinking Tommy Lee, but now she’s thinking Steve Aoki. Robin noticed the drummer held up his sticks in the shape of an X so he’s thinking Travis Pastrana.


    It’s time to unmask The Elephant! The Elephant is…Tony Hawk!


    Elephant’s Clue Answers: Canvassing Park Benches in elephant’s package nods to Tony’s childhood skating in San Diego Parks. The birds in elephants package are a clue to Tony’s last name and his skateboard company “Birdhouse”. He skated through the White House in 2010.

  4. Tonight we’ll find out which three from Group A will move on to the Super 9. We have another guest judge and they are revealed to be…Leah Remini!


    Miss Monster comes out and Nick says since it’s a Valentine’s Day episode, all the artists will perform together. Miss Monster performs Rock and Roll All Nite by KISS. Kangaroo joins Miss Monster next, followed by White Tiger and Turtle.


    Nicole says that was a great way to get them in the spirit of things. Jenny says that was amazing and she can’t believe they are going to have to say goodbye to someone. Ken says they have filled their hearts with love, no matter what happens. They’re going to get new clues and insider info from loved ones!


    Turtle’s clue package: Man, I’m having a shell of a good time on the show being whoever I want. I would never have gotten here without the people who supported my dream, like my favorite teacher from high school, Miss S. We see a teacher with a shelf in front of their face and they say Turtle was in their 9th grade bio class. I’m not surprised he’s on the show because he always came into my class singing. He’s the most driven student they ever had. Last time she ran into him, he recognized her and she was so proud to see everything he achieved. He was still that same sweet, humble kid. Good luck on the show! I hope you have the time of your life. We see on the chalkboard the Greek letters Alpha and Omega, we a map with Seoul, South Korea.


    Turtle takes the stage and performs There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back by Shawn Mendes. Nicole says that’s her favorite performance so far. She loves his voice and he can dance! Jenny says the top three performers moves on and there’s no doubt Turtle is going to make it. Our singers have all written valentine messages to the panel. The first valentine from Turtle is to Nicole. Turtle will never forget the morning they spent together. It was Turtle-y awesome.


    Jenny says maybe Turtle was on a morning show with Nicole. Jenny is sticking with her guess of Nick Lachey. Leah doesn’t think it’s Nick. She’s thinking high school, maybe someone like Jaden Smith. Nicole says his voice reminds me of the country singer Hunter Hayes and there was reference to Korea and Hunter has toured Korea.


    Miss Monster clue package. She loves performing under this mask because she gets to prove that true art comes from within. Her hairstylist always says that to her. Miss Monster is my spiritual mom. He was intimidated to meet her at first, but like many misunderstood monsters, she wasn’t scary at all. He was 18 years old, her hair stylist was late, and she needed to get ready for a big event and I volunteered. All she had was a curling iron in her purse and they made it work. Trust me, you can’t hurry good hair. Miss Monster has been through a lot and she hasn’t always been seen in the press for who she is. She’s all about spreading love and that’s what she’s doing on the stage. Not to mention, honey, she can sang. The clues we seen were camouflage bandana, white socks, and checkered bear.


    Miss Monster takes the stage and sings You Don’t Own Me by Lesley Gore. Jenny says she has no idea who that is and Leah thinks she knows. Nicole says she has such an iconic voice, it’s a legendary voice. The effortlessness to her performance, it’s an honor to watch her. Miss Monster’s Valentine is for Robin! It says, I only have eye for you. We even had a rendezvous in sin city.


    Robin says there are a lot of awards shows there, so maybe another artist. Leah thinks there was such an ease, so old school and confident and that comes with a different time. Leah thinks it someone who is used to performing like Mary Wilson. Jenny says she seen socks and a teddy bear, so she’s thinking Chicago, so she’s thinking Queen Latifah. Nicole feels like she recognizes that voice. She thinks maybe Gloria Gaynor. Robin is going to follow Nicole’s guess and he met her in Vegas. After Miss Monster leaves the stage, Robin and Nicole think the tone could be close to Chaka Khan and Robin thinks she’s not going into her higher register on purpose.


    Kangaroo’s clue package: I’m so humble to be here in the Group A championships. I never thought I’d make it this far, but after hearing the judges love and comments, I feel empowered to fight my way into the Super 9. Especially with all the support from her family. We have Kangaroo’s little brother, who has a plant for a head. He says he’s younger than his sister by one year, but he’s always looked up to her. Even though she was a drama queen in her teenage years, she’s the most resilient person I know. When tragedy hit our family, she was the glue that held us all together and since then, we’ve only gotten closer.  Her grace under pressure and her ability to rise above the haters is always something he’s admired. Hearing her on this stage receiving all this praise, he couldn’t be more proud. I love you sis! Knock them dead tonight. We see a model airplane and an angel figurine.


    Kangaroo takes the stage and sings Diamonds by Rihanna. Robin says she doesn’t over sing or over perform and it’s from the heart. Great job. Kangaroo’s Valentine is to Leah. It says we’ve sat at the same table and your courage has inspired me. Jenny thinks The Talk.


    Ken says this is someone who he worked with, a Victoria’s Secret angel, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Nicole says maybe. Nicole says in the package it said drama queen, and this person was in a movie called Confessions of a Drama Queen, and it could be Lindsey Lohan. Jenny says the voice is a sensual sound and a good singer. Her first guess was Jordan Sparks and that’s who she is sticking with. Robin says that’s a good guess. Leah says it’s much harder to guess when you’re here.


    White Tiger’s clue package: Look who’s still here! Shocked? Me too! Going into this competition, I knew I was never going to be the best singer. I wasn’t going to let that stop me. I’ve always known how to work a crowd and that’s been my strategy here all along. Don’t take my word for it, here’s a good friend who can back that up. We meet his college buddy who has a dart board for a face. This one time they went out and met some smokin’ hot ladies at the club. There was so many dudes there and White Tiger knew exactly what to do to beat out the competition. He told the girls we were professional dancers, of the Magic Mike variety and on the spot we made up this ridiculous routine. Before we knew it, all the ladies were cheering us on. Those dudes didn’t stand a chance. Smell what I’m cooking. Seems like El Tigre is still winning over the crowd. The competition better watch out cause when he commits to something he doesn’t stop until he wins. We seen a sign that said Route 66, a quarter, and on the dartboard, darts were on 3 and 18.


    White Tiger takes the stage and performs We Will Rock You by Queen. Nicole says he delivers every time without fail. Nicole loves that he just goes for it. Jenny says there are only three people moving on and she hopes he’s one of them. White Tiger’s Valentine’s day card is for Jenny. It says I’m wild about you, but I know your husband will appreciate this card even more.


    Jenny says she loves it and she is picking up on the fact he’s an athlete and she seen the quarter in the clue package and she says Rob Gronkowski. Nicole says they would never make the clues that obvious. Ken says there was a pad of butter in the package and he thinks it’s Fabio. Nicole caught on that he loves dancing and he’s playful and he’s talk. Nicole thinks he’s Joe Manginello.


    It’s time to unmask a singer! The singer being unmasked and going home is…Miss Monster!


    Time for final guesses! Nicole feels like her voice is so legendary. She thought Gloria Gaynor, but there were references to iconic hair, she had an album called Camouflage, she thinks it’s Chaka Khan. Ken thinks back to the Titanic reference, but he’s going back to country with Reba McEntire. Jenny says there was a white sock and a bear, so there’s a Chicago connection, she’s going to stick with Queen Latifah. Leah says the clue package said something about not hurrying good hair, and she’s sticking with Mary Wilson. Robin says he’s been ok recognizing legendary voice and he also thinks it’s Chaka Khan.


    Time to unmask Miss Monster! Miss Monster is…Chaka Khan!


    Miss Monster’s Clue Answers: The locker with the #10 in Miss Monster’s package is a clue for Chaka’s 10 Grammy awards. The queen chess piece in Miss Monster’s package hints to Chaka’s nickname “Queen of Funk”. The white socks and teddy bear in Miss Monster’s package are clues to Chaka’s hometown, Chicago. Nick wants to know what went down in sin city with Robin Thicke, and she says they were on the same show.  

  5. Welcome to night two of The Masked Singer! Tonight we continue with Group A. We have a guest judge and we reveal him to be…Jason Biggs!


    We kick-off the show with Llama. Llama’s Clue package: Llamaste to all his wooly friends in the land. He’s having such a good time here with his four legs. Now, I keep the laughs rolling in. His strategy is to approach this competition, the same way he approaches his career. For awhile, I was spinning my wheels, but then he started to envision his success and to think on his feet. Luckily, he has four and tonight he’s visualizing that he’ll crush it. He’s the greatest of all time…the goat!!! During the clue package we seen an accordion.


    Llama takes the stage and performs It’s Not Unusual by Tom Jones. Jenny says he upped his game. He proved tonight that he wanted to play to win. She says this guy can sing. Great job. Jason says he thought the singing was fantastic and he was cool and collected. He loved it. They wanted to know what each artist was most likely to do and Llama was voted most likely to be near firing cannons.


    Jason says maybe Johnny Knoxville. Ken says from last week’s clue package it said someone from Seattle and Joel loves yoga and he plays accordion, he still thinks it’s Joel McHale. Jenny says last time there was a clue of joker, so maybe comedian. But maybe joker in The Lego Movie Zach Galifianakis. Ken says Zach can sing. Nicole says she’s going off the whole yogi vibe, and she tosses out Matthew McConaughey or Woody Harrelson.


    Miss Monster is next. Clue package: I’m happy that people loved my first performance, even without knowing who I was. It felt so good. And now I can just focus on being an artist. People say, Miss Monster, you can’t do it all, but why not try? You’ve got to stand up for yourself in this dance. Tonight, I want you to see I’m like Mister Monster, capable of anything and full of love. During the clue package we see a Titanic reference, there’s a queen chess piece, and we see a journal, and she drew a butterfly.


    Miss Monster takes the stage and sings Fancy by Reba McEntire. Ken says that was epic and he thinks they’re in the presence of an icon. He’s trying to figure out who she is. Robin says she’s got a deep voice and an amazing singer and probably someone who’s been doing it her whole life. She was voted most likely to be in the presence of royalty.


    Jenny is thinking she’s bigger. Maybe Mary Wilson. Jason says the presence of royalty…maybe the King, Elvis. Maybe Priscilla Presley. Ken says from the clue package Titanic, and she sang the theme to Titanic, and French was in the clue and Celine Dion is French Canadian.


    White Tiger is next. Clue package: I had no idea how much work would go into taking a stage like this. I’m putting in the time to hone this new craft, put the mass in mask. His motto is to work hard and play harder. He’s no stranger to celebrating, he loves a good Block Party. This may sound crazy, but dancing heals his body after taking a beating. So he’s ready to cut a rug on that stage tonight and tear it up! In the clue package we see a skiing cow.


    White Tiger takes the stage and performs Good Vibrations by Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. Robin says that was an entertaining performance. Nicole says she’s here for him and the big C…Conviction. He was voted most likely to go to the mat for a friend…for a did and he did literally.


    Jason says that implies wrestling, tag team. Maybe Hulk Hogan. Robin says on the first episode, they were told the characters had 9 superbowl appearances, and one of the clues was four score and seven years, which could be to a superbowl in seven years so maybe Rob Gronkowski.


    Kangaroo is next. Kangaroo’s clue package: Keeping it 100, lately it seems she’s been watching her life from the sidelines and to be honest, it’s scary putting herself in the spotlight again. Sometimes it feels like everyone is against her and she knows she needs courage and get back in the game. She’s determined to make the most of this fresh start. You may underestimate me, but that’s ok. I’m owning this underdog story and not pulling any punches. Plus, she has to be a role model for her little roo. This her time to fight back. There’s no way she’s going home now. During the clue package we seen make-up, a basketball, and basketball jersey’s with the number 23 and the name Deejay on the back.


    Kangaroo takes the stage and performs I’m No Good by Amy Winehouse. Robin thinks she is the front runner right now. Jason says it’s difficult to get past the fact they’re in a costume and he forgot she was a giant kangaroo. Kangaroo was voted most likely to appear on a list with Seal and Mike Tyson, and she might have been.


    Robin says she moves very nimble and there were basketball references so maybe Candace Parker. Jason says there was emphasis on fresh start, so maybe Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, so maybe Tatyana Ali. Ken says this is someone who is maybe on the sidelines watching her husband, Gabrielle Union. Jenny says she’s obviously incredibly talented.


    The final performance is Turtle! Clue package: Being here feels like such an opportunity to break out of my shell. People have always expected me to act a certain way. That really tests me. Well, I want to rebel from all that. You can punish me all you like for being myself, but if I want to sing a love song, then I’m going to sing a love song! During the clue package we see a menu that says Seafood DuJour-Dover Sole, Slow-Cooked Beets, and Ginger Snaps. We see a fire alarm being pulled and then him writing on a chalkboard don’t rave ever at my school.


    He takes the stage and sings Say You Won’t Let Go by James Arthur. Robin says that was beautiful and dynamic vocally. Good job. Jason says he gave the rest of the contestants tonight a shell-lacking. He was voted most likely to hunt for booty, and he has often.


    Ken says hunting for booty? Boy bands are the biggest booty hunters. He says this guy reminds him of AJ McLean. Jenny disagrees, but she’s not sure which boy band. Robin says maybe more of a rocker, maybe Billy Joe Armstrong. Jason thinks he’s a rocker. He says there was a burger reference in the last one, maybe the band he’s in has a food reference. Maybe like Hootie and the Blowfish. Nicole says she said Zac Efron because of the surf board and she’s doubling down on him.


    It’s time to find out who will be unmasked! The artist with the least amount of votes and going home is…Llama.


    Time for final guesses. Nicole says he said he was a joker so she thinks it’s Woody Harrelson. Robin says they saw Seattle and radio host, but he’s going to go with Adam Corolla. Ken says that’s a great guess, but very wrong. He really thinks it’s Joel McHale. Jenny says she switched her choice today. She picked up on Seattle and she’s going with Kelsey Grammar. Jason says he likes to be near firing cannons and that brought him to Johnny Knoxville.


    Let’s find out who the llama is! The llama is…Drew Carey!


    The Llama’s Clue answers: The Radio DJ clues in llama’s package refer to Drew’s weekly radio show on Sirius XM’s “Underground Garage”. The playing cards in llama’s package refer to Drew’s victory in the “Celebrity Poker Tour”. Drew was in the Marine Corps reserves. Llama’s mention of “spinning my wheels” is a nod to “The Price is Right” which Drew hosts.  

  6. The Masked Singer is back and it’s more monstrous than ever. 18 celebrities from all walks of life are going undercover in the biggest singing competition the world has ever seen. Each week, they’ll sing their mighty hearts out and compete to stay anonymous. The weakest performer will be eliminated, and their identity revealed. America, it’s your job to guess which massive stars are behind the masks. Buckle up! We’re kicking off our season 3 now!


    Nick welcomes everyone and it’s season 3 and this season is the biggest by far. Nick introduces our judges Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy-Wahlberg, Ken Jeong, and Nicole Scherzinger, along with a special guest judge who unmasks himself and reveals himself to be…Jamie Foxx!


    Tonight, we are meeting group A, and this roster of 6 has appeared in 9 Superbowls. Kicking off the show, this cat’s out of the bag and roaring to go. We see the White Tiger come out and his strength is extremely rare and weakness catnip. The judges immediately notice he is a huge guy.


    White Tiger’s clue package: Ready to meet your next champion? His entire life he’s sought out perfection. So choosing a mask with unlimited power like the White Tiger was a no brainer. I’ve had a giant career full of accomplishments, but when I imagine being on stage singing I’m a big old scaredy cat. But it’s been awhile since I’ve done something that scared me, so I’m here to conquer yet another a challenge. What’s my motivation? My fans. I don’t want to let them down. So now I’m ready to get in that ring and smash the competition. Let’s party!!! During the clue package we seen a sign that said Ultimate Clam Shucking 51 clams. We also see another sign that says Masked Singer Tryouts 5/3. We see a final poster that says “Four score and seven years ago…”.


    White Tiger takes the stage and performs Ice, Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice. We can tell he’s not a singer, but he’s moving around and having fun with choreography. Jenny says this is a way to kick-off a Superbowl show! Nicole says she was so impressed, he came out swinging and dancing. Tiger got moves. Ken says in the clue package it said clams. This is someone from Boston. He thinks it’s John Cena.


    Jamie disagrees and he thought it might be Tyler Perry because of the height. But to come out with Ice, Ice Baby, that’s what all his white homies sing and dance to. He says when Ken says New England, he says Gronkie!!! Robin thinks that’s a good guess. Nicole is going off the champion clam shucker. Clams? Aquaman? She thinks it’s Jason Mamoa. Ken says what a great way to kick off season 3.


    Time to hand the ball off to the Turtle. Strength is tough exterior. Weaknesses are treadmills.


    Turtles clue package: At the starting line of my career, I was surrounded by other hungry newcomers. It felt like everyone around me was fighting tooth and nail for the dream and I watched as too many of those stars burn too brightly too quickly and then fizzled out. I’m a turtle because I’ve always taken it step by step. Slow and steady wins the race, but now I feel like I’m ready to break out of my shell. After years of preparation, I would love to make a big splash. So I don’t want anyone to cross that finish line before me. We see in his clue package him waxing a surfboard and grilling burgers.


    Turtle takes the stage and sings Kiss From a Rose by Seal. We can tell that he is some sort of singer. During one of his notes Jamie says boy band! Ken says this was really good and he thinks he’s a front runner for the show. Amazing! Jamie says the falsetto, that’s the real chops. Jenny says she saw the bunny ears and the burgers and she thinks it’s someone her and Donny know.


    Ken suggests it is her husband and Jenny says it’s not! She does think maybe a boy bander, someone 98 degrees or Backstreet Boys or New Kids On the Block. Robin noticed in the clue package he said Step by Step, so maybe Joey McIntyre. Nicole says maybe. Nicole says it could be an actor who can sing, like Zac Efron who was in Baywatch.


    Next, is the Llama. Strength is his spitting game and weakness is tongue twisters. Llama’s clue package: Mi mi mi mix it up! Good morning nerd herd! You’re listening to the wool, where we’re all cool, no bull! I’m here for one reason only. To have a laugh and what’s funnier than a llama. You may call me a joker, but I’d like to get serious for a minute. The song they’re singing tonight is their favorite track for celebrating love with that special someone. There’s nothing quite like being swept up in its deep profound lyrics. It’s a tune that really gets the llama in the mood for romance. The llama can’t wait to sing it for you tonight. Llama out! During the clue package we see 23.3 The Wool as the radio station. We also see a Blackjack, and Buddha statue. We see an album cover that says The Sounds of Seattle.


    Llama takes the stage and performs She Bangs by Ricky Martin. We can tell the Llama is not a singer. Ken says he thought that was a platinum performance. He says he was the Jay-Z of llamas. Jamie says he knows this isn’t necessarily his thing, but he appreciates the confidence. The llama says he wears digs like this in real life.


    Jamie thinks he’s a DJ, someone who’s been around music for a long time. Nick suggests Howard Stern. Jenny doesn’t think it’s him. Nicole says she saw the Ace of Spades and maybe it’s David Spade. Robin says his hair reminds him of Joel McHale. Ken says Joel is from Seattle and this is exactly what Joel looks like before hair and make-up.


    Miss Monster is next and her strength is eye contact and her weakness is peripheral vision. Miss Monster’s clue package: When you become famous, people want you to look or act a certain way. They forget you started off as just a shy little monster. It didn’t take long for her to be misunderstood, so she’s here to set the record straight. Just like her favorite creature in season 1 did, the monster. He made her feel! He rewrote his story, it was fire! And now this performer in pink wants to follow in his furry footsteps. But darlings, I’m nervous! Will you still love me without knowing my name? During the clue package we see some “furspray” and a locker with the number 10. We see a label in the locker that says monster hits.


    Miss Monster takes the stage and performs Something to Talk About by Bonnie Raitt. We can tells she’s a soulful type of singer. The monster makes an appearance during the performance. Nicole says this is the vibe she got from Patti LaBelle. Ken says the performance was energetic and she connected with everyone in the audience. Ken says she said darling in clues, very southern with a twang. There’s something legendary about her. Ken thinks it’s Dolly Parton.


    Jenny says Ken might not be crazy. They’ve had huge amazing singers on the show, but she thinks the singer sounds younger, a little soulful. Maybe Mary J Blige. Nicole says as soon as she heard the voice she thought older and diva, so maybe Dionne Warwick. Jamie says he knew she was a queen when she walked out.


    The Robot is up next and his strength is security and weakness is emotions. The Robot’s clue package: What makes a perfect masked singer? One part creativity and one part grind. I relate to robot because I always felt the need to put on a tough outer shell. I think that makes me come across as inhuman and it stunted my potential. I’ve had my fair share of fame, but I’m here to tip the scales and show I’m relatable to anyone. I really do have a heart and a lot of love to give. Initialize it, your perfect masked robot. Let’s Rock! During the clue package we see the letters Pt from a “periodic table” that was number 78. We seen a skateboard and a fire truck crash into each other.


    Robot takes the stage and performs Are You Gonna Go My Way by Lenny Kravitz. Robin thinks he’s throwing his voice. Robot says he’s having the most fun he’s ever had in his career. Nicole doesn’t know if this is what he’s known for, but she loves the tone of his voice.


    Jenny saw the skateboard hitting the fire engine and she thought maybe a skate boarder or someone who does stunts. Maybe Johnny Knoxville. Jamie agrees with Jenny, but he thinks someone a little tougher. He thinks it’s Steve O. Nicole is going off the whole tip the scales and weighing in, maybe Floyd Mayweather.


    The final performer of the night is the Kangaroo and their strengths are bounces back and weaknesses are comes with baggage. Kangaroo’s clue package: Like most of you watching, she’s a survivor. She recently lost a person who held her family’s heart together, and by my own admission I found myself in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. But I’m here to do what kangaroos do best…bounce back. She has to fight for her family and show them that bullies never win. I’m beyond terrified, I’ve never done anything like this before. But she’s not about to lose the chance to realize a dream she’s always had. To all you survivor’s out there, this one’s for you! During the clue package we see a sign that says Outback. We see a gramophone in a tree.


    Kangaroo takes the stage and sings Dancing On My Own by Robyn. Jamie says she sings beautifully. Robin says she pulled everyone into her world and that was a beautiful performance. Jamie says her story has already touched everybody. Kangaroo says one of her greatest fears is being vulnerable, but she’s had no choice but to be.


    Jenny doesn’t think she’s from Australia and she’s gone through heartache. She thinks maybe Jordan Sparks. Nicole says that’s a great guess. Nicole says there was a gramophone, so maybe they have a grammy, maybe Kelly Rowland. Jamie says that’s not Kelly’s voice. Robin tosses out that Iggy Azalea is from Australia.


    It’s time for the first elimination of the season! The artist with the least amount of votes will be unmasked and go home. That artist is…The Robot.


    It’s time for final guesses! Nicole says what an amazing premiere! She’s going off the tip the scales so she’s thinking a boxer. She goes with Floyd Mayweather. Jenny goes off the clue about stunted his potential, she’s going to go with Johnny Knoxville. Jamie agrees but he thinks it’s someone who’s been in the press talking about getting their life back together, Steve O. Robin is going with snowboarder, gamer type, and maybe the fire truck represented his hair color, he’s going with Shaun White. Ken says everyone is wrong. He had a distinctive voice, but he couldn’t put his finger on it. He said in the clue package he has a lot of love to give so maybe Flavor Flav.


    Time to unmask the robot! The robot is…Lil Wayne! Robin says this is the most shocked he’s ever been. He chose the robot because of his kids. The Robot clue answers: The video game controller in Robot’s package is a clue to Lil Wayne’s Xbox commercial. The fire truck in Robot’s package is a clue to Lil Wayne’s hit single “Fireman”.

  7. We kick the night of with KISS and they perform Rock & Roll All Nite. During the performance they introduce Terry and he comes out and introduces the judges. Terry says KISS are on their final tour, The End of the Road tour.


    We recap last week’s finals performances.

    It’s time to find out who the winner of AGT Champions is. The superfans have voted. The winner is…V. Unbeatable!

  8. Years ago we watched 16 americans begin an adventure that would change their lives. We see clips of various previous season and we introduce Winners at War.


    Tony says he has a big reputation at Survivor and the fans of Survivor have waited 20 years to see this. Parvati says she hasn’t had an opportunity to be her diabolical self at all because she’s been building a family, but she’s about to be a phoenix rising from the ashes. Ethan was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma and he remembers dreaming he would live long enough to play survivor again.


    Amber says she was a kid the first time she played the game. Little did she know she would fall in love, meet her husband, get engaged at the finale, and win the show. She wants to win the game.  To come out two times and beat her husband again? That would be awesome. It’s the biggest battle in Survivor history and be crowned the greatest player of all time? 39 days, 20 people, 1 Survivor!!!


    Jeff is on the beach as the castaways come in and he has something covered. Sandra is shocked to see Rob and Amber and Rob never told her he was playing again and she definitely feels betrayed. Jeff says wow! Let me take this in! 20 winners. 20 years in the making. Jeff says Wendell applied many times to get on the show and then fulfilled a dream. How does it feel? Wendell says he sees legends and it feels good. Jeff says Yul? You played 14 years ago, the iPhone didn’t even exist. Does he see this game through a different prism? He says yeah. He feels like a dinosaur that has been time bombed into the future. The world has changed, Survivor has changed, and he thinks he’s going to have to change.


    Jeff turns to Amber and says she first played 20 years ago. Not only had the iPhone hadn’t been invented, but neither had iTunes, Twitter, Facebook, Xbox. She ends up meeting Rob, got engaged, and has four children. What does this mean for her this time as a very different woman than the first time? She says it’ll be like a nice vacation. But to be a part of season 40, it’s going to be the most epic season yet, how could you pass up this opportunity?


    Jeff says they need to toast to celebrate. This is a once in a TV series moment. He has champagne and 20 glasses. Ben says his competition here is the greatest of the greatest, but everyone will be swords swinging. Jeff says he’s proud to have them here as representatives of their 40th season. Even though they have all won, there will be tough times and they will be vulnerable. But they belong here. They throw their glass when they are done.


    Jeff says Survivor 40: Winners at War. They are divided into men and women, but that’s not how they are going to play. Sarah says she’s the most recent women out here and she has 9 of the most intimidating women out here. Jeff hands out their wrapped buffs and we have blue and red.


    Wearing red, Dakal, we have Tony, Wendell, Amber, Kim, Sophie, Nick, Sarah, Yul, Sandra, and Tyson. Wearing blue, Sele, we have Rob, Natalie, Ethan, Parvati, Ben, Michelle, Dani, Denise, Jeremy, and Adam. Tony’s third time. How does he feel about this group because he needs those people? Tony says he loves them all.


    Jeff says they are introducing a new Survivor currency in the form of a fire token. They will each start with one fire token. If you are voted out, you must will or bequeath, your tokens to another player as you head to that island right behind you…the isolated and unforgiving Edge of Extinction. Where you will wait for your chance to get back in this game. And one more thing. If being crowned the winner in a season of all winners and winning a million dollars in the process is not enough to inspire you, then let’s make it 2 million. The largest cash prize in the history of reality shows. All you have to do is win.


    It’s time for a challenge! Here’s how it works. They will race out in pairs to retrieve a ring. They will then battle their way back, the first person with one hand on the ring and one hand on the flagpole wins. First team to three wins. They will win flint. The loser? No fire and no rice until after the first tribal council. This challenge is also for immunity.


    Our first matchup is Tyson and Yul taking on Jeremy and Ethan. Yul is battling Jeremy and Tyson has the ring and Ethan is hugging Tyson. Tyson is headed back and Jeremy wraps his arm around the ring and inching closer to the flag pole and he gets the flag. Dakal gets the first point.


    Next round is Sarah and Kim taking on Parvati and Natalie. Them women are out fast and Natalie is the first to reach it. Her team is directing her to the far side and Kim is fighting to take it. Parvati is trying to help and a swell picks them and Natalie is closed. Kim is pulling the ring hard away from the flag pole but Parvati is close to the pole. Kim gets a big surge and the women are between both poles and Kim inches closer to red and Kim grabs the flag pole. Dakal gets the second point.


    Wendell and Tony are taking on Ben and Boston Rob. Ben and Boston Rob have to score to stay in it. Tony and Wendell can win it. The guys are out and Wendell gets it first and Ben takes him down. Rob has the ring and Tony and all the men have an arm on the ring. Tony takes Rob under, but he continues to pull towards the pole. Tony is grabbing his arms but Rob grabs the flag pole. Sele gets their first point.  


    Denise and Natalie are taking on Amber and Sarah. Amber and Natalie are tied up with the ring and Sarah and Natalie make their way to the ring. Natalie is inching closer to their flag pole, but Sarah is pulling hard and dragging them towards red. Denise tries to take Amber down, but Amber and Sarah are close tot the flag pole. Sarah is reaching but the water and Natalie pull them back. Sarah gets the flag pole with Natalie on her back. Dakal gets their third point and wins immunity!


    Jeff says epic first challenge. Dakal pulled it out. No one going home. Jeff gives them a map and tells them to head out. Sele will have no fire and no rice and someone from their tribe will be voted out. And to complicate things a little more, tribal council will not be tonight, it will be tomorrow night. They all came to play and this gives them time to make things happen. Adam says to lose the immunity challenge on day one is his worst fear. It’s winners at war, there is no easy target. Someone has to go.


    Yul is excited and he says it’s kind of overwhelming when he looks around and sees all these people and realizes how long ago he played. Tony picks up a paper to read. It says Use your fire tokens to purchase any of these items. They have coffee & pastries for 3 tokens, Small bag of beans for 4 tokens, Regular bag of rice for 5 tokens. They have comfort items: two pillows and two blankets for 4 tokens and Tarp for 5 tokens. They will present their fire tokens at any challenge. They can also purchase an advantage in the challenge for four tokens. Nick says these tokens are going to end up being a huge part of the game.


    Kim reads a note that says their fire tokens cannot be stolen from them. If voted out, they must bequeath it to any player still in the game. Nick thinks the winner of this season will be whoever wins the currency correctly. He thinks his chances to win this game just got much higher. Wendell says after winning Season 36, people know him as someone who knows how to build. Wendell wants to build relationships, not the whole shelter again. Because while you are building, you are stuck at camp. He’s going to chill out a little bit and try and get a read on them.


    Sarah and Amber are talking and Sarah says she didn’t think she’d see her out there because she has four little ones at home. Tyson comes in and they are talking about a daisy chain. Tyson says Survivor has been his career and it has given him an opportunity to spend time at home with his kids. Tyson gets fire going and he says he gets to get up every morning and get his daughter’s ready for the day and spend the day with them. This is the longest he’s left his kids. Wendell asks Sandra how she’s feeling and calls her queen. Sandra says don’t call me that because it’ll put a target on my back. She says she’s the only one who knows what it’s like to win twice. Sandra says her and Tony had it out, so she’s here to prove why she’s the queen and she knows everyone wants a piece of her. Sandra says they all want what she already has…her crown.


    Over at Sele, Rob says he has a huge target on himself. By losing at the beginning, he’s already put himself at a big disadvantage and now they have to build a shelter and vote someone off. The game is on already. Jeremy is talking to Parvati about her leaving her daughter. She hasn’t played in ten years and she says it’s a little strange. Parvati says she’s not the flirty girl she was once, but she’s a mom now and she’s married. Being a mom will help her to relate to people in a completely different way.


    Sele begins building and Ethan is psyched to be there. Rob says he looks great and asks if everything is good. Ethan says life after cancer is hard because there’s a fear of relapse and a fear of death and being on Survivor is living. Ethan hasn’t played since 2004. He wants to resurrect that young innocent guy and play the game that he loves and that changed his life. He’s excite to see how he plays in the new era of Survivor.


    Denise and Adam are using the map and looking for a trail and they say they’d rather not go to tribal council every time and he’s wearing blue again. She had flashbacks to her season because they lost every challenge. Adam says he could be her Malcolm. Adam says he loved watching her. Everyone back at camp are counting and they realize Adam and Denise are missing. Jeremy says that’s a rookie move. People are just looking for something and you just don’t want to rock the boat so early in the game.


    Dakal is still building and Tony is talking to Yul and he says he can’t go anywhere. He desperately wants the immunity idol, but he’s trying to learn from his past mistake. He doesn’t want to put a target on his back because he doesn’t want them to think he’s back to his old antics. He’s just going to chill and wait for them to lower their defense. Amber says people seemed pretty comfortable and she’s wondering if she’s supposed to be looking for an idol because she feels like she has a huge target on her back because of Rob being here. She says she was rooting for her team, but she is her husband’s biggest fan. She says it’s more of a disadvantage to have him here. She says she learned from Rob the game never stops. As soon as you get comfortable, you are in trouble.


    Sophie and Yul are talking and Sophie wants to work with him. Yul says he hasn’t been part of the Survivor community and he doesn’t have those connections. Yul talks about Boston Rob and Tyson playing poker together along with Kim and Jeremy. Yul remembers Tyson saying if they’re ever on an island together, they would be the power alliance. Sophie says Sandra, Tony, and Sarah who played together, and they are kind of gritty. And then you have Wendell and Nick and Sophie and Yul in the middle. Sophie feels like she has a nerd shield in Yul. But the number one thing on her mind is not who she wants to work with, it’s who she wants out.


    Back at Sele, Rob and Parvati discuss working together. Parvati asks if he wants to give her a corsage or flowers before making it official. Rob says they probably know the game better than anyone and maybe they should work together. Rob doesn’t want to the new school people to dictate how the game will go. Parvati says she doubts Rob has many other options. Dani is talking to Ben, Nick, and Ethan and they are discussing Rob. Dani says they won’t get many opportunities to get rid of people like Rob because he’s well liked and connected. Why would you not take an opportunity to remove that from the game.


    Ben, Jeremy, and Rob are talking and Ben tells Rob his name has been tossed out and Rob wants to know from who. Ben says he’s trying to remember who said it. Ben says it was one of the girls and Rob says Ben not telling him who said his name makes him feel like he can’t trust him. Ben says Dani and Rob wants to know why. Rob asks Ben why he thinks Dani said his name. Rob then goes to Dani and says can I ask you a question and she says yeah, I’ve thrown everyone’s name out. Because you have connections and I don’t. Rob appreciates that she told the truth and he realizes he can trust her. He says there might be an old school alliance coming together. Dani, Ethan, Parvati, and himself. If they can get through the vote, it would be mutually beneficial for them to work together showing the new kids the ropes.


    We’re at Sele on Day 2. Adam didn’t sleep one wink last night because they have to go to tribal council tonight. One of them is going to be the first one voted out and will have to go live alone on Edge of Extinction. Danni says playing with winners makes everyone paranoid, plus no one wants to be the first one voted out. We see various people talking. Ethan says the game is warp speed and he doesn’t know what’s going on.


    Natalie and Jeremy are talking about who they might want to vote out. Natalie says if she had to pick one now, she’d pick Adam. Jeremy asked more than Denise? Natalie and Jeremy toss out Denise and Adam to Rob and Ben. Ben’s gut is telling him to keep Adam safe and so he goes to talk to Adam about everyone being suspicious of him and Denise going off. Adam says he went to look for the water well, but they weren’t looking for idols. Adam says they should be way more worried about Natalie and Jeremy’s existing relationship and Rob and Amber’s marriage. Adam goes to talk to Denise and they talk about splitting up Natalie and Jeremy. Adam makes the pitch to Ethan and Ethan goes to Rob and Parvati.


    Rob says Adam and Denise show they might not be trustworthy, but Adam has a point about Jeremy and Natalie. Rob says it makes him look bad to talk about their relationship when he has his wife there, but the difference is Amber is on the other island and he can decide which way he wants to go. Parvati goes to Jeremy and Natalie and they can’t decide between Adam and Denise and they are almost ready to go to tribal council. Parvati goes to Rob and says are they this dumb? Rob says they have to play Survivor for everyone. Parvati says her and Rob are clearly the two biggest threats in the game. What is going on?!? Parvati says this doesn’t seem to be a fully baked plan. Saddle up kids, this is going to be a bumpy ride.


    Tribal Council Night 2: Sele makes their way in and they get their torches and dip them in the fire. Jeff goes to Ethan about the culture shock of being back out here. Ethan says the pace of this game is shocking to him compared to the last time they played. Jeff asks Rob is feeling that as well. He says the game has evolved and it’s moving lighting pace and you either get in line or get out. Jeff asks Jeremy who was missing and he says he doesn’t know. Jeff says he just wants to be a part of the discussion. Denise says she’ll be open. She explains what happened with her and Adam and explains they got lost, but perception is everything.


    Adam says Denise and her met yesterday and there are people who have played together and even one marriage. Rob says there’s a reason to vote off every one of them. Jeff asks Natalie if it just comes down to please don’t let me be first. Natalie’s sister was voted off first and she says she can see that. Natalie says if Adam and Denise go off, that’s a reason to vote someone out. Parvati says it’s winners at war and no one should feel comfortable. Jeremy doesn’t like that answer because coming to tribal is where you find out who has your back. Michelle feels like she’s so calm in her regular life, but every word can be skewed and twisted and she’s just trying to hold on. Ethan says he’s not the calmest person and he thinks there are plans in place, but now there are bombs in his head. Natalie says she never felt this nervous. Jeremy and Ben whisper about maybe voting out Parvati.


    Jeff says it’s time to vote! He goes to grab the votes. No immunity idols yet. First vote: Denise. Adam. Denise. Natalie. Natalie. Natalie. Natalie. First person voted out of Survivor…Natalie. Michelle is shaking her head. Natalie quietly exist and Jeremy looks at Ben and says who was it. Ben says they’ll talk. Natalie gets to where she bequeaths her currency. She gives it to Jeremy.


    Natalie then heads to Edge of Extinction. It just hit her that she just got voted off first. It’s really weird. She thought she would be crying, but she’s just mad. They can earn five tokens to get back in the game.


    We’re at Dakal on day 3. Sandra asks Yul if he’s a free agent and Sarah is at the water well with them. They discuss being able to infiltrate family. Sarah says she doesn’t feel hurt often, but she felt betrayed by Rob who said he’d never come back out. She just thinks about that every time she sees Amber. Sarah says they have to stick together. Yul agrees. Yul asks if Sandra would have any issue breaking up the poker people. Yul has been trying to get Wendell, Sophie, and Nick in an alliance and that’s where he’d like to go. Yul tells Wendell and Nick that Sandra is focused on Rob. Wendell thinks Rob and Amber need to get EoE as soon as possible. Yul says he doesn’t think anyone else thinks this alliance exists and that gives them leverage in the game.


    Over on Sele Day 3, Michelle and Ben are talking. Michelle says tribal couldn’t have gone worse and it sucked she was left out of the vote. She feels like she has something to prove. She says to not have the numbers is the worst case scenario. Michelle says Rob is playing that he’s not running the show, and that’s what he’s doing. Ben says he and Michelle and Adam need to figure out how to not be followers.


    Jeremy says it sucks to lose Natalie, but he sees that Natalie gave him the fire token. He says no one knows how valuable there are and it’s good to have two of them. On EoE, Natalie goes to the sail and there’s a message. There’s an Edge of Extinction price list. Use fire tokens to purchase any of the following: Strategic: one advantage in return challenge is one token and idol with full power is 3 tokens. Idol only has full power if they get back in the game. There are also luxury items: Pizza, jar of peanut butter, bottle of wine, six-pack of ice cold beer, or a hammock, and they are all one token.


    Natalie is trying to figure out how to get fire tokens and she sees a bottle with a note. It says this is her first opportunity to get back in the game by earning a fire token. Journey to the last spot you can see the sunset. She’s excited for this chance. She’s not good at riddles. She starts looking around and she climbs up to see the sun set. She says it’s about a mile. She says her quads were burning. She didn’t come here to be on EoE, she came to win. She’s walking around and she sees a message. It’s an immunity idol that is good for three tribal councils. It has no value on Extinction, but you can sell it to any player from the losing tribe for one fire token. She’s the first person here and she’s already affecting the game. The things she does here can affect the game.


    Time for immunity: Dakal gets the first look at the new Sele tribe. Natalie voted out. Sandra is shocked. Immunity is back up for grabs. They are going to paddle out and retrieve a bag of number tiles and then race back over a number of obstacles. They’ll then use the tiles to solve a combination and get three rings and knock down some paddles. Sandra sits out for Dakal.


    Sele has a slight lead getting into the water, but they run into their first obstacle. Dakal takes a slight lead and they get to their station first. Sele is struggling to get to their station, and they are too far way. Rob pulls them closer and he unties their game. Dakal has their tiles and is almost back to their obstacles. Rob has his tiles and both tribes are on their way back. Dakal is back and they start working on their obstacles.


    Sele has made up ground, but they are still a little behind. Dakal is first to the barrel roll. Sele is still trying to close the gap. Rob is launching the women over the barrel. Dakal has everyone over the barrel and they are working on the net crawl. Dakal is on the beach and she’s yelling at Tony to pay attention. Yul is working on his combination. Rob and Jeremy are still trying to get over the barrel roll. Jeremy is trying to get on Rob’s shoulders and Adam is trying to reach over to grab his hand and they are struggling. Ethan gets on Ben’s shoulders and grabs Jeremy and then Rob and they move on. Yul is still working on the combination and has it. Tyson tosses his first ring and misses. Adam is going to work on the combination.


    Tyson switches out with Wendell and he knocks down the first paddle. Wendell just misses the second paddle. Adam finally gets the combination and Ben and Jeremy are tossing. Jeremy gets the first paddle with the first ring and it’s tied. Wendell hits the second paddle but it doesn’t fall. Jeremy gets the second paddle. Wendell gets the second one and it falls off again. Jeremy gets the third paddle and Sele wins immunity!


    Jeff says Sele, nice job. No one wants to go to tribal back to back. He sends them back. Dakal will be heading to tribal tonight. Rob says winning the challenge is a great moment, but he’s worried about his wife. Amber has a huge target on her because of him and he can’t do anything to help her. This could be his wife’s life in the game.


    We’re at Dakal after the challenge. Tony asks if anyone wants to volunteer to keep Natalie company. Sarah says do you? Yul says we should just talk and be civilized. Tyson says Sandra or Nick or maybe Tony. Sandra says maybe Amber. Amber trusts Kim and Tyson and she’s not used to this type of play but she needs to dive in. Nick and Sophie are talking about everyone being a threat. Sophie says the target is moving. Kim says are we crazy for not taking Sandra out first. Sandra is going to spread truth, lies, and rumors because that works for her. Back at camp, Sandra sees the immunity idol and she’s absolutely going to buy it. She now realizes the importance of fire tokens and she’s so relieved. If she gets a bad feeling, she’s going to play it. She thinks Natalie sent it to her. Sandra says Tyson just said to vote out Tony.


    Tony says they should tell Tyson they are voting out Amber, but they are going to vote out Tyson instead because everyone loves him and he’s a funny guy. Tony says they have to break up the poker alliance. Tyson, Amber, and Kim. So you get Tyson out, but leave the big target shields in the game. Yul talks to Tyson about the poker alliance and Tyson says that’s coming back to bite him. His strategy switched from dictating the direction of the game, to pure Survival mode. He throws Kim and Amber under the bus and says he can get in with Nick and Yul.


    Kim is talking to Sandra and Nick and she says she’s getting a bad vibe and she thinks it her. She says there are moments of paranoia where people are talking and she walks up and they stop talking. She says it’s awkward. Kim goes to Yul and she says she has never been in this position before. Kim says she didn’t understand until today what it feels like to be on the outs. She didn’t envision this comeback. Kim says she didn’t realize the poker alliance would be an issue and she doesn’t think there is anything she can do to change that.


    Tribal Council Night 3: Dakal makes their way in and they get their torches and dip them in the fire. Jeff goes to Amber playing 16 years ago. How is she feeling? Amber says she hasn’t aged a bit. That feeling of being on edge is definitely familiar, but it happened much quicker that she’s used to. Jeff asks Tyson with the game moving fast can he see the different eras? Tyson says Yul thinks before he acts and some of the newer players don’t think at all. Jeff asks Tony if Tyson is talking about him and he says no. Amber says Tony was running around from person to person and it was nerve wracking. Tony says everyone was because he didn’t need to the first two days. Sandra says Amber hasn’t been around for a long time. She has to keep up with he pace or move out of the way.


    Jeff asks Sophie how the feeling was before tribal. Sophie says the day just dropped off. Sandra seen panic because several names were thrown out, but the names were narrowed down. Kim says she knows her name is in that group. Kim mentions the poker player alliance, which isn’t a thing. Tyson says he also heard his name and he hopes what he did is enough to prove to people that he’s with them. Kim says the poker player alliance isn’t a thing, but there are genuine relationships here. Kim says if there’s an alliance, she’s not in it. Wendell says there are friendships and she doesn’t know how tight a poker alliance might be that was played a year ago. Amber says with two million at stake, friends will be willing to do anything.


    Nick says as soon as people heard about the two million dollars people started trying to figure out how to put it in their pocket and not their friends pocket. Sophie agrees. Sandra says if friends are lost out here over two million dollars, which is a lot of money, that’s a price that a lot of people are willing to pay.


    Time to vote! Jeff will get the votes. If anyone has a hidden immunity idol and would like to play, now is the time to do so. Sandra does not play her idol. First vote: Nick. Kim. Kim. Kim. Amber. Amber. Amber. Amber. Second person voted out of Survivor is…Amber!


    Amber quietly leaves and she bequeaths her token to Rob and heads off to the Edge of Extinction to join Natalie.


    Next time on Survivor, when the enemy strikes, it blows up your game. You’ll need to climb out of the ruble.

  9. Tonight, ten acts are fighting for the title best in the world! Terry introduces our judges and explains the panel of superfans.


    We’re kicking off the night with Alexa Lauenburger and her dog act. She takes the stage for her act and she gets a slow start but gets going. The crowd loves it.


    Alesha says Alexa pulled out some new tricks and the last trick was amazing. They are all champions already in her opinion. Howie says only one act will go all the way, but they nailed it. He loved it, but it’s up to the super fans. Simon says this isn’t going to make him very popular, but it just wasn’t near as good as the first two performances. Heidi says she didn’t want to do the same routine and coming up with a new routine in one week is hard.


    Up next is Duo Transcend. They are doing this for their son and they are performing something they’ve never done before. They take the stage for their performance and they begin blindfolded and they do their entire performance blindfolded. Mary is emotional as they finish and she’s crying.


    Alesha says this is such a sexy act and she has so much respect for what they’ve just done. Heidi says they are so captivating and it was incredible and it was all feel and touch and they really upped their game for the finale. Howie says he loves them and he truly believes this performance is worthy of the finals. Howie thinks their better card was last time, but the superfans seen it. Simon says he thinks is the best performance they’ve ever seen from them because they took a ginormous risk and it was so dangerous. They pushed themselves and he thinks they’ve given themselves a real shot.


    Next is Heidi’s golden buzzer from Norway’s Got Talent, Angelina Jordan. She’s always just wanted to sing for Simon and she couldn’t believe she was finally performing for him. Being in the finals is unbelievable and she feels like she has a responsibility to do even better. She takes the stage and she sings Goodbye Yellow Brick Road by Elton John.


    Heidi says Angelina made her so proud and she can feel it all the way down to her bones that she will be a star. She’s so excited for her. Howie says she is so amazing. One word comes to mind when he listens to her and that is hypnotic. She draws him in and she truly is a champion. Alesha says she’s like an old soul and it was beautifully delicate and they were holding on to every word she sang. Simon says what he loved about tonight is that she took a risk and he’s going to remember this performance for years and years to come. He says she took that song sound current, relevant, and he thinks she’s a very special person and she made the final way better because she set a standard.


    Next up is Simon’s golden buzzer, Boogie Storm. They reminisce over their journey on how they got to Champions. They take the stage for their performance. Alesha is on her feet dancing and Howie hits his X. They get an ovation from the other three judges and the audience and Howie is saying really?


    Howie says he’ll be honest. He doesn’t get it. The dancing is not fantastic, there’s no message. Really? One flip? Alesha says she was pleasantly surprised. They aren’t the best dancers, but they made everyone smile and they got the audience on their feet. Heidi says it’s so different from the last time they saw them and she feels like she saw a new group on stage. Simon says the message was hope. Hope because this is a group of people who are historically not known as nice people and they’ve flown millions of miles to appear on Champions and he thinks the dark side has become the light side and he applauds them.


    Alesha’s golden buzzer is up next. Silhouettes is from America’s Got Talent and they are ready for this opportunity. They take the stage for their performance. They tell a story about a family who is evicted and foreclosed on and becomes homeless and how they are helped to get their house back. They finish by spelling out the word Kindness.


    Alesha says they are in tears, that was so beautiful. Silhouettes passion was pouring out of the screen. That’s how you do it! Howie says nobody does this clearer and better and to use this platform to inspire people, they are not just here to win it, they are here to change the world. Heidi loves them and it takes her a lot to well up and she doesn’t know how they do it. It definitely jumps from the stage into their hearts. Simon says he loves the message, he loves them as people. He thinks on a night like this, it’s pulling out the performance of a lifetime and he doesn’t think that was as good as their previous performance.


    The next act is Hans and he’s from America’s Got Talent. He says this journey has been a roller coaster. He takes the stage and he says he knows it’s the final and everyone is excited. He says he’s going to do Simon’s song for real, but then he does not. He switches to Get Loud by Jennifer Lopez. Simon hits his X. Howie, Alesha, and Heidi are on their feet. Hans comes down to dance with the judges for a moment and the returns to the stage and ends with the splits.


    Simon says without being rude, and Hans says why break the habit of a lifetime. Simon says honestly, that was torture. Howie says he thinks he is one of the most fun loving, energetic acts they’ve had. Alesha thanks him for using her song. She thought it was terrible but so much fun. Heidi says let’s have fun and live a little! How hard is it to just get up and enjoy the time together.


    Tyler Butler-Figueroa is the next act and he’s from America’s Got Talent and he’s a violin player. His mom talks about Tyler’s journey on AGT. Tyler says he feels more confident in himself. Tyler takes the stage and plays Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley.


    Simon says that was so impressive because Tyler decided to do one of the most iconic songs of all time with no on stage with him and only the violin. He says he just gave himself a shot at winning. Heidi says amongst all the craziness they’ve seen today, Tyler holds his own on that stage and she has to give it to him. Alesha says Tyler just stole her heart. He and his beautiful instrument and a stunning song.


    The next act is Howie’s golden buzzer, V. Unbeatable. They are from America’s Got Talent and they are originally from India. They take the stage and a couple of the dancers start behind the judges and one flips over the judges table. They also use a two rider bicycle to do trick son. The audience is on their feet and loud.


    Howie says this is by far the best act that has graced any of the stages on any talent show. Every one of them, it’s like their life is at stake. They have opened up the world to them. Alesha says the best decision Howie made was pressing his buzzer. That was pure brilliance and she felt every single moment of it. Heidi doesn’t know how they can top this. What they did was absolutely incredible and they gave them everything. Simon says in a show which calls itself Champions, you’re looking for an act that’s brilliant and steps up. Simon says they are just regular people and they’ve done something quite remarkable.


    Marcelito Pomoy is a singer from Philippine’s Got Talent and he can’t believe he’s here at Champions. His wife says this is his dream. Marcelito says he’s nervous again because he’s one step away from winning and he’s starting to believe maybe he can. He takes the stage and sings Beauty and the Beast by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson.


    Heidi says Marcelito! She says this is the third time they’ve performed for them and it just never gets old. She loves his song choices as well. Howie says when he first saw him he blew him away from the surprise of it all. And he enjoys each performance. Alesha says the song choice was perfect and she thinks he upped his game. Simon says he is a very nice, very talented guy, and this was much better than the last performance he did. But if it was his choice, he’d have done something less predictable.


    The last act has had its ups and downs, and its one of the most dangerous acts they’ve seen. It’s Sandou Trio Russian Bar and they are from America’s Got Talent. We take a look back at their journey on the show and we hear her daughter wishing her luck and saying how proud they are of her and the entire act. They have spikes on either side of the bar this time. Halfway through her performance she lights the bed of nails on fire. Alesha is having a difficult time watching. We are coming up on the last trick of the act and she blindfolds herself. They are successful with their final tricks.


    All four judges are on their feet for Sandou Trio Russian Bar. Howie says they are crazy and crazy amazing and that was epic. He says that was raising the game and they literally lit a fire for the audience. Alesha says every time they them they raise the bar and they get better and better. She loves their stage presence and the way she commands the stage. Heidi says she’s at a loss for words. She’s a crazy lady. Simon says they’ve blown the competition wide open and he thinks they are one of the top three acts. Simon thought he knew where the competition was going to go, but after that changed his mind.


    Next Monday is the Champion’s World Finale! We’ll find out the results then. One act will be named the best of the best.

  10. It’s time for the semi-finals! 12 acts will perform tonight.


    JJ Pantano is our first act and he’s the 7 year old from Australia who roasted the judges and Terry in the first round. He’s been researching the judges and writing new jokes and he knows he’s ready…he just hopes the judges are. JJ takes the stage and greets everyone and begins his set.


    Howie says JJ is so adorable, and so mean, and so adorably mean and that’s a compliment. Heidi says he has so many fans, welcome to Hollywood. He fits right in. Simon says he’s absolutely hilarious. He loves JJ insulting him.


    Tyler Butler-Figueroa is up next and he’s a violinist and he’s from America’s Got Talent. Tyler takes the stage and he performs What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong. He has a vocalist on stage with him for a small part.


    Alesha says it was so cool tonight to see another side of Tyler and it was very poignant and a beautiful song. Howie says it was absolutely beautiful, emotional, and captivating. Simon says Tyler plays one of the most difficult instruments to play and he advises him to have no one else on stage with him and play the most beautiful song with the most beautiful instrument and his beautiful smile and he could win.


    Mark Spellman is our next act. He will perform as X. X is an extension of Mark. X takes the stage via a screen and then he appears behind the judges. He invites Terry to the stage and asks him to take a seat. He has a mask for Terry to wear and he won’t be able to see anything while it’s on. He has a blindfold over his eyes. X touches his own right shoulder and has Terry point to where he felt a touch and he points to his right shoulder. X asks Terry to imagine a watch and setting it to a specific time and he says 4:00. There’s a box on the judges table with the watch and Heidi opens it and it says 4:00. X asks if Terry could be anywhere in the world where would he be? He says at home. X has him take off the mask and turn around and X is in his home with his wife on the screen.


    Heidi loved the concept and the payoff was fantastic and that moment wasn’t there today. Heidi says it wasn’t as special. Alesha says X is consistently brilliant and she’d love to see him move on. Simon doesn’t think this was a progression up, but if he makes it through he has to make something brand new.


    Duo Destiny is up next and they are from Poland’s Got Talent. They are a strength/aerial act. They take the stage for their performance and the judges discuss them and Duo Transcend.


    Heidi says they have to be one of the six chosen ones. It is insane. Duo Destiny are incredible. Howie thinks they delivered in their first performance and he doesn’t think this what that different. Alesha doesn’t agree with Howie and she thought there were a few new moves. What they are doing is outstanding. Simon thought it was a step-up and he felt it was something they hadn’t done before and everything was brilliant.


    Next up is Hans and he was from America’s Got Talent and he was put through by the judges. He doesn’t care that he was buzzed by Simon. He takes the stage with his accordion. He starts behind a podium and he’s launching a campaign to be the AGT Champions winner. He performs Danke Schoen and then stops and starts singing Bang Bang by Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nikki Minaj.


    Howie says Hans is so much bigger than this show. Howie says he was on a reality show, he has hats, you know what that means. Heidi hits her X and she says just got excited. Heidi says she loves him so much and she hopes he gets to the final. He is super creative. Alesha thinks his presentation was the best by far. She loves everything about him and he’s fabulous. Simon says he shouldn’t have loved that, but he did love it.


    Dania Diaz is next and she’s a magician from Spain’s Got Talent. It feels amazing being a semi-finalist and now she’s going to bring something different. She takes the stage for her performance and she is directly in front of the judges. She wants Howie to take a selfie of all the judges and herself before she begins. She wants to share the positive side of her story and that’s the part of leaving everything behind and getting a new start.


    Simon says Dania’s hands were shaking and it showed how real everything was. It was magic. There’s no denying that. Alesha says it was beautifully understated and they couldn’t take their eyes off of her. Howie says he’s going to be honest and his heart was bursting with emotion and it was one of the most beautiful things he’s ever seen.


    Duo Transcend is up next and they are on aerial act from America’s Got Talent. They want to show they are more than just a trapeze act. They are prepared to step up their act. They take the stage and begin on the trapeze. They then move to do some tricks on roller skates.


    Howie says that just transcended from a circus act into a full blown stage show. Alesha felt like she was at the greatest show on earth. She loves Duo Transcend. Heidi says she loves them so much, it was perfection. Simon says there’s always a concern can you step up and progress. He thought the theme was immaculate and it was everything he could have hoped for them.


    Next up is Strauss Serpent and he’s a contortionist from Africa’s Got Talent. He takes the stage and begins his act. He starts by coming out of a box that he was folded up in. He does some tricks and then brings out a bucket and bends himself backwards.


    Alesha says Strauss is funny and she loves him. Heidi says this is one of her most favorite acts. She says he does what not a lot of people can do. Simon says the first time they saw him he had a wow factor, but he didn’t have that tonight, but he deserves another shot in the finals. Howie says a lot of people watch these acts on their computer and this will be one of the best unboxing videos.


    Ryan Niemiller is up next and he’s a comedian from America’s Got Talent. He gets a second chance at winning and he wants to win. He is booked out through the end of the year. He didn’t start this journey to lose. He likes the pressure knowing he has to step it up. He takes the stage for his set.


    Heidi says she likes Ryan, but she thought he was funnier last time. But she thinks he’s really, really funny. Simon says he’s slightly with Heidi. He says it didn’t feel as fresh and it felt like a set he’s done before but he got lost a little tonight. Howie says he understands what it takes to write material and he thought he was great and he’s a star. Alesha says she thought it was very, very funny and there’s something about him that she loves.


    Alexa Lauenburger is up next and she was sent through by the judges. She’s from Germany’s Got Talent and she is the only animal act in AGT Champions. Howie is watching and says to the other judges this is the best dog act he’s ever seen.


    Alesha says Alexa was perfection and she was incredible. That act was wonderful. Heidi says it was awesome and she put the biggest smile on her face again. Simon says if there was one golden buzzer they were all allowed to push, he think they’d all be reaching it. Simon agrees with Howie, this was the best dog act he’s seen by a mile. Howie says two words describe her act: Pure Joy!


    Sandou Trio Russian Bar is next and they are from America’s Got Talent. Getting invited back and making the semi-finals lit a fire under them. They take the stage for their performance and they have fire. They have the bar over fire and they perform their tricks over that.  


    Alesha says Sandou Trio meant business and they upped their game. That was a spectacle. Heidi says they are incredible and they have to be one of the six. Simon says they have this really cool attitude and the whole presentation was absolutely amazing and he thinks it will get them in the final. Howie says semi-finals are about raising the bar and they literally raise the bar and they literally lit the bar on fire.


    Our final act is Marcelito Pomoy and he’s from Philippines Got Talent and he’s a singer. He takes the stage for his performance and he sings Time to Say Good-bye by Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman.


    Howie believes Marcelito has the best shot of winning the whole game. He raised his game. Alesha says that was a brilliant song choice and it enabled him to shine. She loves everything about him. Heidi says she’s been waiting all day for him to come on to the stage and he is her favorite. Simon says Marcelito, there is no denying he has a unique, special talent. If he makes the final he thinks Marcelito needs to take a bigger risk.


    It’s time for the results!


    Hans and Strauss Serpent are called forward. The first act going into the finals is…Hans!


    JJ Pantano and Tyler Butler-Figueroa are called forward. The next act moving on is…Tyler Butler-Figueroa!

    Only two spots remain. Sandou Trio Russian Bar and Ryan Niemiller step forward next. The fifth act moving on is…Sandou Trie Russian Bar!


    Duo Transcend and Duo Destiny are the final two acts to learn their fate. They came in sixth and seventh in the superfans vote, but only one can move on. The judges will have to decide which act to put through.


    Simon says he’s going to judge this based on the first time he seen both acts and who he believes can step up the most in the final. His vote goes to…Duo Transcend!


    Heidi says they are so similar and it’s crazy they are both up there. She feels more passionate about Duo Transcend!


    Alesha says both of these acts are equally skilled and she enjoyed both performances. The act she thinks has a bit more of an edge is Duo Transcend!

  11. Terry greets us and it is the last night to earn a spot in the semi-finals. Terry introduces the judges, and tonight the final golden buzzer goes to Alesha. The semi-finals begins next week.

    Our first act of the night is Christian and Percy and he’s from America’s Got Talent from 2014. Christian is a strength balance act who does tricks with his dog. Christian takes the stage with his dog. He finishes with a backflip and all four judges get on their feet.


    Heidi says Percy likes to French kiss because he’s licking Christian. Howie says he won’t shake hands, how do you do that? Heidi says everything was perfect. Howie remembers him and he was a fan of him and he was better than he was and he stepped it up. Alesha says it just got better and better and better as it went along. Simon says he’s never seen a dog balance and dance at the same time, and he thinks whoever makes Scooby-Doo should think about making Percy-Doo or something. Simon loved this act. He thought it was amazing.


    Next is Voices of Service and they were from America’s Got Talent and they are a singing group of veterans who are sharing the story of veterans who return with PTSD. They were proud they made it to fifth place, but they want to keep spreading awareness. They take the stage and perform Brother by Kodaline.


    Howie says it’s amazing and the power you feel when Voices of Service harmonize is like no other. Alesha says it was a very poignant song. Heidi says their voices are weapons of hope and she thanks them for their service. Simon thinks the message they deliver is absolutely beautiful. It made him emotional. It was a massive step up. He knows for a fact they could win.


    Next is JJ Pantano and he is from Australia’s Got Talent and he was a semi-finalist. JJ is 7 years old and his mother is a singer and that’s why he wants to do it too. He takes the stage and he surprises everyone by roasting the judges. He also roasts Terry.


    Heidi says JJ is hilarious. He’s a little star. Alesha says looks can be deceiving, but he’s really brutal. Well done. Howie says he’s adorable, funny, and he has stage presence. When he grows up he wants to be just like him. Simon asks who is the funniest person in the world, and JJ says him. Simon think he has a little star glow going about him.


    The next act is from Romania’s Got Talent and he’s a dancer and his name is Emil Rengle. He was the first openly gay man on Romania’s Got Talent and it created a lot of scandal and he won. He says expectations are higher and he’s ready to win again. He performs to Billie Eilish’s Bad Guy. Simon hits his X. Howie hits his X towards the end.


    Howie says this is Champions and he doesn’t think Emil hit the level of talent of the competition. Alesha says her and Heidi understand how difficult it is to dance in heals and congratulations on his success and good luck. Simon doesn’t think that was the caliber to be the best of the best. Simon asks Emil if he thinks he can win. Emil says of course he does. Heidi says the good news is, it’s not the judges that decide and she wishes him good luck.


    Silhouette’s is up next and Howie recognizes them. They were on America’s Got Talent in 2011. Most of the children involved grew up and moved on, but there is one original member remaining. They take the stage for their performance. Their shadow story is about a dog and his owner who goes off to war and comes back to reunite with their dog.


    Simon says that was absolutely beautiful, but he wants to know where the dog is. The whole message about your life is better because of animals was incredibly creative. Heidi loved them and her and Alesha were crying. Heidi says it was so amazing. Howie says he’s not an emotional guy, but he welled up in tears. He felt the story. The crowd is chanting and clapping. Alesha says that was so moving and so beautiful and she’s thinking about her dogs. She was completely inspired and she wants to see more and she hits her golden buzzer.


    Brian King Joseph is our next act and he’s a violin player and he’s from America’s Got Talent. He has neuropathy that will eventually leave him paralyzed. He finished in third place on his season. He’s going to do an original song for his Champion’s performance because he wants to show them he’s here to win.


    Alesha says she loved Brian’s energy and his violin. She loved it all. Well done. Heidi says she’s so happy to see him again, every time he’s there it’s on fire. Howie asks if there’s a story behind that and he says it was his story. Simon says he reminded him he’s one of the most talented musicians they’ve ever had on the show. Simon hopes he gets through.


    The next act is Connie Talbot and she’s from Britain’s Got Talent and she’s a singer. She was 6 years old when she was on BGT, and now she’s 19 and ready to break away from that little girl she was. She’s going to perform an original song and she plays the piano.

    Heidi thinks Connie is so beautiful, and that song, and that voice were all beautiful. Simon says he’s always wanted America to get to know her and she nailed it. He thinks she did great. Alesha says it’s so lovely watching her come full circle and this could be the start of something so beautiful for her. Howie wishes her the best of luck.


    Next is The Sandou Trio and they were from Season 6 of America’s Got Talent. They are here for redemption. They are super nervous. They are a danger act that involves a bar and flips. They take the stage and do their first several tricks and then she blindfolds herself for a bigger trick. They go down in front of the judges for their final trick and they get a standing ovation.


    Howie says it is so scary to watch The Sandou Trio but they were thrilling and he loved it. Heidi says she loved watching them up there. She says it’s so thrilling and amazing. Alesha says they aren’t playing, they came here to win. So impressive. Simon says he doesn’t normally love this kind of act, but he thinks this act had more relevancy than any other act they’ve seen on the show tonight. He thought it was absolutely incredible. Well done.


    Our final act is Bars and Melody and they were on Britain’s Got Talent and they were disappointed they didn’t win. They are also going to do an original song and they move to a small platform directly in front of the judge’s table. Howie hits his X halfway through the performance.


    Howie says that didn’t seem like a championship song and they didn’t do anything he hasn’t seen before. Alesha says she wants nothing but good for them, but she could feel their nerves. She liked the song, but she thinks the nerves got the better of them. Heidi agrees and it didn’t work for her either. Simon says he remembers their very first audition, their story, and why they got the golden buzzer. He’s disappointed this audience didn’t get to experience what he did years ago.


    Our final act is Strauss Serpent and he won Africa’s Got Talent Season 2 and he’s a contortionist. He has a translator on stage because he speaks French. He takes the stage for his performance and the audience and judges freak out.


    Heidi says Strauss is incredible. It’s contortion on another level. Howie says it’s amazing. He’ll bend over backwards to win this thing. Alesha says she loved it. She says it was so painful to watch, but watching the audience watch him was even funnier. Simon says he always wonders why do people love watching horror movies. In the same way he shouldn’t love watching what they just did, but he did. One of his favorite acts tonight.


    Time for results! Emil, Voices of Service, and Strauss are called forward. The first act moving on is…Strauss Serpent!


    Bars and Melody, Connie, and Sandou Trio are called forward. The next act moving into the semi-final is…Sandou Trio!


    Brian King Joseph, JJ Patano, and Christian and Percy are the final three remaining. It is now up to the judges!

    Howie says he can only choose one and he has to go with cuteness and comedy. He has to go with JJ!


    Alesha says she enjoyed all of them. However, the act she’d like to see go through is…Brian King Joseph!


    Heidi loved all of them, but she always goes with her gut feeling and she’s going with Christian and Percy!


    Simon says the person who we’ll be seeing in the semi-final is…JJ!

  12. Terry greets us and introduces the judges for us. Tonight, Howie says it’s his golden buzzer and Simon says Howie has to be quicker than him this time.


    Howie says there are more winners tonight than on any other episode. We have Germany’s Got Talent winner up first, Alexa Lauenburger, and she has a dog act. She wants to prove she and her dogs are the ultimate champions. Heidi greets Alexa and they speak in German and Heidi translates that Alexa is only 11 years old. Her dogs are brought out and it’s a ski resort them. She has a variety of eight dogs that she calls down to do various tricks.


    Simon gives a thumbs up. Heidi says it’s nice to see a young person doing something else besides sitting in front of a computer. She says that was the cutest thing. Howie says this is why this show is called Champions. He’s never seen a person Alexa’s age have such control and do what she did. Alesha says she has four dogs and she can’t get them to sit. She loved every single minute of that. Simon says first, this was done on ice and it made it more difficult. Simon likes the fact that the dogs were all different breeds and he thought it was incredible.


    Our next act is from America’s Got Talent and his name is Tyler Butler-Figueroa and he’s a violinist. He’s 12 years old and he’s been in remission from cancer for four years. He wants to show Simon that he IS a champion. Tyler takes the stag and performs Old Town Road by Little Nas X featuring Billy Ray Cyrus.


    Howie says Tyler is amazing and he’s a huge fan. He’s so authentic and wonderful and he’s a great guy.  Alesha thinks Tyler put a little swag on that violin playing. Everything about this act makes her feel so good. Heidi thought it was adorable and dancing while was playing was even better. Job well done. Simon says he reminded him just how good he was and he is an extraordinary young man.


    Next, we have Ben Hart, and he’s a magician who is from Britain’s Got Talent. Ben intends to push himself further and take some risks and maybe go all the way this time. He takes the stage for his act. He finishes his act and the judges look confused.


    Howie says this is champions and maybe it’s his nerves and it kind of fell off at the end. Howie doesn’t think this is worthy enough to move on. Alesha says she’s seen him perform before, but the awkwardness of nerves might have gotten in the way. Simon says it was like watching a weird info commercial. He’s struggling to know what to say and he’s thinking that’s it? Simon says someone of Ben’s talent to come with that was nowhere near good enough. Heidi doesn’t want to rub salt in the wound and she tells him good luck.


    Next up is Freckled Sky and they were on season 10 of America’s Got Talent. They have found success because of AGT, but they didn’t win. This is their second chance. Simon wishes them luck and they take the stage. Simon hits his X midway through their performance.


    Simon says he didn’t get the performance by Freckled Sky. Simon thinks that technically great, but it was boring. He doesn’t think they caught up with technology. Howie says they are a champion and they deserve to be here. Simon says he wanted them to be better. Howie says he thought it was amazing. Heidi agrees. Alesha says she took it as a beautiful piece of art and it was executed as well. Well done.


    Moses Concas is up next and he’s from Italy’s Got Talent and he won in 2016. He’s a musician and he plays the harmonica. He knows he’s against the best in the world but he wants to win the title Champion and he’s ready to do whatever it takes. He steps onto a platform and is raised into the air and he begins playing the harmonica. Simon does not look amused during the performance.


    Simon says he thinks it’s going to take a miracle for Moses to make it through to the next round. Simon says it was almost like the performance never got started. He likes Moses, but he didn’t like the act. Howie says the fact he could beat box and play the harmonica at the same time is amazing, but it didn’t rise to the level to compete with everyone else. Alesha agrees with Howie.


    V. Unbeatable is up and they are a dance act who was on America’s Got Talent. They are from Mumbai, India. They are pushing themselves even harder than before and they are here to finish what they started. They take the stage for their performance.


    Alesha says oh my goodness, where do I start? She can see on their faces just how much this means to V. Unbeatable and they brought beautiful, positive energy. Heidi loved it. So much adrenaline. It was incredible. Simon says they needed them tonight! Every time, they come out they do something more creative and interested. He thinks this has probably been one of the best acts they’ve seen on Champions this year. Howie says he loves them and he loves what they do and what it means to them. Howie says disappointment only lasts a moment. THIS is a moment! THIS is the moment they’ve been waiting for and he sits on the golden buzzer!


    Michael Grimm is up next and he won America’s Got Talent in 2010. He wasn’t ready for the fame that came with the win and so he stepped back and let fame pass him by. He takes the stage and he sings I’d Rather Go Blind by Etta James.


    Howie says he absolutely loves Michael and he loves his voice and he felt the emotion and he loved what he just did. Alesha says he seemed nervous at the beginning, but he has such a lovely voice and she likes the humility in him. Simon says Michael is a nice, sincere, humble person, but he didn’t like the song. But he has an amazing voice because he deserves to go through to the next round.


    The next act is Duo Destiny and they won Poland’s Got Talent. They have performed with Cirque du Soleil. They take the stage and Alesha greets them. Their names are Kinga and Goncalo. They are a dance/strength/aerial act and they take the stage for their performance.


    Heidi thinks that was perfect. It was sexy, and romantic, and wow. It was breathtaking. Alesha says it still felt fresh and different. It was dangerous and Duo Destiny did a fantastic job. Simon says they are astonishing and he thought the song was fantastic. Howie says it was seamless and they truly rose to the level of acrobatics and dance and strength.


    Next is Quick Style and they are a dance crew and they won Norway’s Got Talent. They’ve done some choreography for some artists such as BTS. They take the stage for their performance. Howie buzzes them at the end.


    Howie says Quick Style can dance, but they didn’t show anything they haven’t seen before. Alesha says they are completely different from V. Unbeatable. Alesha says they felt slick, fresh, sophisticated, and stylized. Heidi says they are great dancers. Simon says this has been a very strange night, but he has no idea what’s going to happen. He says the song choice wasn’t right for the moment, but he has a feeling about these guys.


    The final act of the night is from Holland’s Got Talent and his name is Miki Dark. He goes to the judges table and points at Heidi and requests her to join him on stage and he grabs Terry also. Miki is a danger/magician act. He tears a picture of Simon and puts it in an envelope and kisses it and puts it into a basket with a lot of other envelopes. He then has Terry stand over Heidi with the bucket and she has a black box on her chest. He blindfolds himself and has a knife and counts down and Terry pours the basket down and he throws the knife and it pins the envelope to Heidi and it’s the one with the torn piece of Simon’s picture.


    Heidi says it was fantastic. Alesha says Miki Dark was very exciting. Simon liked the act, but he thought the screaming was over the top. Howie thanks him and says he blew them away.


    The results are in and the first act moving on is…Duo Destiny!


    The second act moving on is…Tyler Butler-Figueroa!


    The final act moving on by the judge’s decision is…Alexa Lauenburger!

  13. Terry greets us and the judges and Howie get the golden buzzer tonight!


    Our first act is Marcelito Pomoy and he’s from Philippines Got Talent. He was an orphan and he spent a long time trying to find his family. He was hoping his family would see him sing on Got Talent and his family was there at the final and his life changed overnight. Marcelito takes the stage and performs The Prayer by Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli and he does it singing both male and female parts.


    Alesha says she wants to see something different and unique and Marcelito just gave that to them. It was absolutely brilliants. Heidi says it was one of the craziest things she’s ever heard in her entire life. Howie says he is so worthy of a golden buzzer, but it’s very early in the night and he hopes the super fans vote him through. Simon says that was what he calls a 10. As simple as that and he thinks the super fans will put him through to the next round.


    Oz Pearlman is next and he is a mentalist and he was on America’s Got Talent from season 10. Oz always hears he should have won and that’s what he’s here to do. He has the judges think back on any day or time in the past and he has the audience get out a one dollar bill and he has Terry randomly select a bill. He has Simon fold the bill and place it in an envelope. Oz then guesses Heidi was thinking of her engagement day and she has Heidi put in the day, month, and year in her calculator. Oz then turns to Alesha and asks for a word that describes her person and she says Mystique and that is what he’s written down. He then has Alesha add her day month and year to Heidi’s. Their total is 58,209,061.


    Oz then asks Howie for the date, month, and year he’s thinking of and writes down 16031980 and the total is 74,241,041.He then has Simon open the bill and asks for the serial number and the number is 74,241,041. Oz says America’s Got Talent turned his life upside down and he turns the board over with the numbers and it spells Moment.


    Alesha says Oz’s stage confidence and presentation were amazing. Heidi says he really is the real wizard of oz. Simon says there are no words. He says if you don’t believe in magic after that, he doesn’t know what to say. It was incredible.


    The next act is Boogie Storm and they were on Britain’s Got Talent. They take the stage for their performance and they dance to Bang Bang by Jessie J, Ariane Grande, and Nikki Minaj. The music then changes to Milkshake by Kelis, then Jump Jump by Kris Kross, then Pretty Fly for a White Guy by The Offspring, and Boogie Fever by Sylvers.


    Simon says this was his golden buzzer on Britain’s Got Talent and he would give it to them again. Howie says he can’t. He says it’s his choice. Simon smacks the golden buzzer and everyone cheers. Heidi is checking Simon’s head. Simon says he did it because he believes the darkside is the good side. He says this is one of the best acts they’ve ever had and they have to be in the final. Heidi doesn’t love them as much as Simon does. She says they’re good dancers and it’s a fun gimmick, but how long can it last. Alesha welcomes them to America and says they’ve made their mark.


    Next we have Ben Blaque and he’s from Britain’s Got Talent. In the semi-finals he had an error happen and he hasn’t done crossbow roulette since then, and tonight he’s going to do the exact act that didn’t go right. It’s his last shot at redemption. Ben takes the stage and he requests Alesha to join him on stage. He begins his act and he forgot his safeties so he has to start over and Howie hits his X. He finally has everything working and the first arrow is released and is on his lower right. The second pull seems to be stuck, but an arrow finally releases and we go to commercial break.


    We’re back with Ben Blaque and the third arrow hit his upper right side. Alesha pulls the next lever and it’s jammed. Heidi hits her X and Ben looks disappointed. Alesha’s button is hit and Simon hits his X and Ben’s act is over. Simon says he believes this whole thing was not meant to happen. Alesha says she’s sorry it didn’t work out and Howie thanks him. Heidi says she could tell he was nervous. Howie says this is the first time he’s seen something go so wrong.


    Collabro is our next act and they are from Britain’s Got Talent. They have albums and tours, but they’ve always wanted to make it big in America. They take the stage and perform Shallow by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.


    Alesha says if she’s being honest, she’s heard Collabro sing other songs that allowed them to shine more. Heidi says they all sound very nice, but not like wow. Howie totally disagrees. They are good singers and he thinks they have a shot at this. Simon says the one thing that was missing for him was strength and it didn’t feel like them tonight.  However, the super fans are the ones who vote.


    Next is Ryan Niemiller and he’s a comedian from America’s Got Talent. Alesha greets Ryan and congratulates him on third place and asks what it would mean to win Champions. Simon turns the stage over to him.


    Howie says this IS a golden buzzer moment. He thinks Ryan is brilliant and he rose to the occasion. Heidi thanks him for being funny. Simon says he felt better tonight than he did on the main show.


    Puddle’s Pity Party is up next and Puddles the clown is from America’s Got Talent. He had a residency at Las Vegas in Caesar’s. Heidi notes that Puddles is still sad. Puddles performs I Want to Know What Love is by Foreigner.


    Howie says you have to be special to make it in show business and Puddles is special. Alesha says he has a very nice voice, but she’s not sure this act is enough to win Champions. She was confused by it. Simon says he is very, very confusing and it was interesting performance. It was marmite, you either love it or you hate it. He loved it and Puddles won him over. However, they are the ones who are voting and it’s up to the super fans.


    Our next act is Marc Spelmann and he’s from Britain’s Got Talent. He’s a magician. He was disappointed and he thought this can’t be it. He came back as an anonymous character and he made it to the finals, but he still didn’t win. He says Champions is his time to do it. He puts the mask on and he has some cards on a board and there are 10 different colors. Simon picks a yellow card, Heidi picks the smiley face symbol, Alesha chooses the letter S, and Howie selects number 13.


    Simon’s color is turned over and it’s a picture of him. Heidi’s picture and Alesha’s pictures are also on the back. They’ll get back to Howie’s in a moment. If Simon, Heidi, and Alesha had selected any other card, it would have been any number of acts and he spins the board. Howie’s picture is on the board. Anonymous asks what act stands out to Howie and he says Shin Lim and that is the act on the back of Howie’s card. There is a picture of all four judges and Howie is changed to Shin Lim. X then walks down and takes his mask off and it’s Shin Lim and Marc appears behind the judges.


    Heidi says she’s at a loss for words for Marc. Alesha says she had chills. She couldn’t believe it. Howie says THIS would have been his golden buzzer, but Simon likes dancing guys from space. Simon says this is the third time they’ve met and it was probably the best performance they’ve seen from him so far. Simon says that was spectacular.


    Luke Islam is up next and he was on America’s Got Talent and he’s a singer. Since the show he’s been able to sing on Broadway. He takes the stage and performs Ashes by Celine Dion.


    Alesha says she liked him before he started to sing. Heidi says he has so many fans. Simon didn’t love that song for him. He doesn’t think it enabled him to showcase his big range. Simon thinks he has a shot, but he has to step up because he’s better than that. Heidi has so much respect for him, this is mind blowing to her.


    Spencer Horsman and he’s a magician from America’s Got Talent. After the show he was approached by Cris Angel and he had an incident where he blacked out and he struggled to get back on stage. When he saw Champions he thought it might be his shot. He’s been practicing and struggling with his act and his doctor advised him not to do the act and he’s going to risk it anyway. Simon gives him the thumbs up.


    The judges all head outside to see the act. There’s an ambulance on standby. He’s going to be locked underwater in a tank and he’ll have 2 minutes to free himself from all the restraints. He’ll be lifted 30 feet above the ground and if he doesn’t complete his task, then the box will open and he’ll fall out. Simon says he has a bad feeling about this and Heidi says let’s be positive. Spencer is locked into the box and his wife hands him bobby pins to help pick the locks. He is now under water and the box is closed and the timer is going. He is starting to pick the lock and the box is being lifted while he’s working. He has one handcuff off and then the second with one minute remaining.


    Spencer is working on a padlock and Terry notes he’s having trouble with he padlock. Howie notes he’s taking too long. The padlock is off and is working on the lock to the lid. He has the lock off and opens the top and is reaching for the safety latch, but it falls off the side. He has six seconds and he grabs the latch and the box opens, but he’s latched himself to the safety harness. Simon notes that he doesn’t look good and Howie asks if he’s ok. Spencer is on the ground and shaking but stands up and waves at the crowd. Terry asks how he feels and he says tired and he kisses his wife.


    Howie says Spencer’s preamble was that it hasn’t worked and he makes a lot of mistakes and the fact he’s alive is amazing. Alesha says she felt a little sick during the act but she had such admiration for his bravery. Heidi says he’s a crazy, crazy nutjob of a person. He’s amazing and she hopes to see him again. Simon asks what he wants to say to the 50 states about why he wants to move on and Spencer says he wants to prove to them and himself that he can accomplish anything like Houdini, without dying.


    The performances are done. 10 acts have gone head to head. Boogie Storm has gone straight through to the finals. Now the other acts will have to see if they made the semi-finals. The super fans have voted and it’s time to find out who is moving on.


    Marcelito Pomoy, Collabro, and Puddle’s Pity Party are called forward. The act moving on to the semi-finals is…Marcelito Pomoy!


    Ben Blaque, Marc Spellman, and Oz Pearlman are called forward. The act moving on to the semi-finals is…Marc Spellman!


    One spot left in the semi-final! Spencer Horsman, Luke Islam, and Ryan Niemiller are left and the judges will decide!


    Simon says this is a tricky one. He makes the decision based on who he wants to see go through and who he thinks the audience wants to go through. He selects Ryan Niemiller.


    Alesha says the act she wants to see more of and who could potentially go all the way is Ryan Niemiller!


    Heidi says Spencer put his life on the line and Luke is a little star and Ryan was really funny, but she’s not a huge fan of comedy. Heidi says tonight she is a huge fan of comedy and she selects Ryan Niemiller!

  14. Terry is our host again for this year’s AGT Champions! Terry greets the four judges, Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon, Heidi Klum, and Howie Mandel.


    Our first act is Paddy and Nicko and they are dancers and they are 45 and 85 years old. They are dancers. They were on Britain’s Got Talent and they watch clips of their journey. She had a fall going into the finals and she cracked her ribs and they couldn’t perform their best. They take the stage and she is in the audience in a recliner dozing. She is carried to the stage and their dance act begins. They perform to Let’s Get Loud by Jennifer Lopez.


    Alesha says the first time she saw them perform, her jaw was on the floor and they amaze her every single time and she loves them. Well done. Howie says that was amazing regardless of their age! Simon says he absolutely adores them. He thought they were great. Simon says Nicko has slowed down a bit, but he has a feeling the super fans will adore them.


    Mike Yung is our next act. He was on America’s Got Talent. He was singing in a subway to support his family. His life changed even though he didn’t win. His wife passed away suddenly of a heart attack and he was concerned about his kids. He says this is a second chance. Another shot to be the champion. He’s honored to be back. He takes the stage and he performs the song he wrote with Martin Garrix, Dreamer.


    Heidi says she’s glad he’s back on the stage and she’s one of his biggest fans. Alesha says it’s important to always have a dream and she hopes that tonight brings something positive to his life. Howie says he’s got great pipes and great dreams, but he didn’t like that song. Simon says he also loves him. He has something really special so he’s thrilled that Mike came on the show tonight and he hopes he gets through.


    We meet Creative Dance Crew and they won Myanmar’s Got Talent. Winning was one of their proudest moments and they are working to make a change in their country. They are nervous to be in America, but they are there to deliver their message to the world. They take the stage for their performance and they are a shadow dance troop.


    Heidi says what they do is so innovative but also socially conscious. Kudos to them for doing that. Alesha says she was feeling emotional while she was watching it and they did a great job. Simon says it’s amazing to see people their age making a point more clearly than some older people. Simon says the entire audience was engaged and they got it.


    Hans is up next and he says he was the breakout start of AGT13. He’s been able to perform all around the world. He reviews his journey on AGT and he says he was a little bit of a star, but he didn’t know how brightly a star could shine. Hans takes the stage and greets the judges and then performs Juice by Lizzo and he begins sitting on a large banana up in the air. Simon hits his X.


    Simon says it was almost impossible to make that worse, none of it made sense. Heidi says it made total sense. Simon says overgrown bananas, terrible singing, and mediocre dancing. Heidi says she loves Hans. Alesha tells Simon he doesn’t have to take it so seriously. That was fun and fabulous. Howie says he loved him, but the superfans will speak.


    Next we have Jack Vidgen from Australia’s Got Talent and he’s a singer. He could feel his life had changed after he won. He had everything he needed to do what he wanted to do, but he did walk away. His voice started to change and he went to hit massive note and he cracked and he screeched. He felt like he was letting people down and he hated the way he sounded. He stopped singing not just professionally, but also around the house and went to work at his uncle’s deli. He takes the stage and performs You Say by Lauren Daigle.


    Alesha says Jack’s voice is beautiful but she thinks he has a real shot. Well done! Howie says he has the talent. He has the voice. He just needs the confidence. Heidi says sounds to her like he can still do it. Simon thinks he has an extraordinary voice, but that was too safe. He thinks Jack was way, way better than that and there’s way more to come from him.


    Next up is Duo Transcend and they were one America’s Got Talent. Since he was on AGT, he had a surgery to stop the progression of the disease he has that would eventually make him blind in one eye. They look over their journey and they discuss they had a fall during judge cuts. Their experience from losing AGT was traumatic for them but they’ve been able to go on and perform for huge crowds and their son gets to come along with them. They want to show their son that even if you fall, you can get back up and make it to the top.


    They take the stage and they are on a trapeze in the air. They do some of their standard tricks and then she does a fall and grabs his legs. She then blindfolds him and then blindfolds herself. They both position themselves upside down and she starts to fall sliding down and he catches her by the ankle. They continue their act still blindfolded. He then does a toss completely letting go and catches her by the hands again.


    Howie says he feels pride watching people push the limits and people know them now. That was so scary and so wonderful and exactly what the show was about. Heidi loves watching them and the love and trust they have one another. Simon says he thinks it was better than what they did a few years ago.


    We have Dan Naturman from America’s Got Talent Season 9. He reviews his journey on AGT and discusses the mistakes he might have made. He says it was traumatic but he’s done some things since AGT. He’s been thinking about his last performance on AGT and he wants to undo what he did five years ago. He wants to win over Heidi and impress the superfans. He takes the stage to perform his set. Simon hits his X.


    Simon says you have to walk away at the end of the night and think you saw or heard something that blew your mind, and that didn’t for him. Dan says in the world of comedy, Simon doesn’t know his *ss from his elbow. Heidi says Dan finally had her laughing at that. She thinks they need to clear the air and she goes up to give him a hug. Alesha says she judges comedy on if they laughed and did they have a good time and he did a good job. Howie says his comedy is funny to him and hopefully it is to the superfans.


    Angelina Jordan is our next act and she’s 13 from Norway’s Got Talent. Her grandmother listened to jazz and she auditioned when she was 7 for Norway’s Got Talent. Angelina won and she says she feels like a princess. She’s still waiting for that big moment in America and she’s always wanted to sing for Simon and impress him. This is the biggest opportunity of her life and she hopes to win. She takes the stage and she sings Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.


    Alesha says she feels like she’s witnessing the birth of something special, a star. Howie thinks this moment, this time on stage, this song, this performance will change her life and career forever. Simon says everything seemed like it came from her and it was an amazing performance. Heidi says she’s so tired they are done talking because she’s so excited and she hits her golden buzzer. Angelina is going to the finals.

    Our next act is Eddie Williams and he’s a strong man and he competed on Australia’s Got Talent. He wanted to win and to make it so far and miss out, it broke his heart. He says this is like being invited to the Olympics. He’s not going to take this for granted. He knows he’s against the best in the world, but he’s not intimidated. He takes the stage and lifts stones that each weigh 260 pounds. He then puts a board on top of the stones and sits on it and there is silence as the audience is waiting for something to happen and he starts singing Ordinary People by John Legend. Howie hit his X and runs to hide.


    Alesha says she thinks Howie ran away because he’s afraid what Eddie might do to him. Simon says he’ll give him Howie’s home address. Howie yells it was good from the back and then mouths it wasn’t good. Heidi says she loved it. She says he’s like if Luther Vandross and The Rock had a baby. Simon says the sequence was totally bonkers, but he has a nice voice and he’s curious to see what the superfans will do because the audience seemed to like him.


    The final act of the night is a magician. Her name is Dania Diaz and she’s from Venezuela and performed on Spain’s Got Talent. She discusses her experiences and everything always thought she was an assistant and not the magician. She started to second guess herself in the finals and she did something different and she didn’t connect. She’s been able to perform for sold out theater’s but this is her first time in America. She sets up to perform her act and she’s a close-up magician.


    Alesha says that was a beautiful way to perform magic and tell her story and she thinks Dania is inspiring. That was wonderful. Heidi says she loves seeing female magician’s on stage and she was very personal with her magic. She loved it. Simon says he thinks that was an absolutely amazing performance. He doesn’t know how many times he’s seen magic with cards, but she made numbers on cards an emotional story. Let’s see what happens.


    It’s time for some results. Terry calls Dan Naturman, Paddy and Nicko, and Duo Transcend forward. The act moving on to the semi-finals is…Duo Transcend!


    Dania Diaz, Eddie Williams, and Mike Yung are called forward. The act moving on is…Dania Diaz!


    Now the final three acts are Hans, Junior Creative, and Jack Vidgen. These acts were 3, 4, and 5 in voting with the Superfans and this year, the judges will make this decision. Heidi says this is hard choice and she always goes with her gut and she selects Hans. Alesha says the act she would like to see in the semi-finals has fought hard to be here and that’s Junior Creative. Simon is going to go with his gut feeling and he picks Jack Vidgen.


    It all comes down to Howie and it is all up to him right now. Howie says Hans is the essence of escapism. Junior Creative means so much to their talent and there’s so much more to them. He agrees with Simon that Jack can be a superstar. He’s going with his gut…originality wins…Hans!

  15. It’s time to get into the outwit portion. The alliance, emotional intelligence and the social part of the game. Jack is up first and he congratulates them and says they should each be super proud. He wants them all to know they are all tremendously undecided so be clear and honest about what you’re saying because it matters. Kellee says she finds the outwit part and she’d like to hear about each of their strategies and how that evolved over time.


    Dean says his strategy was not to be the loudest, the most athletic, don’t be the smartest and get to know people. Just DK chilling strategy. He said Kellee gave him an idol and he wouldn’t be there if it weren’t for her. Dean says would someone as smart as Kellee come to a random person, why did she trust him and it’s because they talked.


    Noura says coming into the game she’s not the typical survivor fan so she created mnemonic devices. Don’t be bossy, annoying, not trustworthy, and dead in the water at a challenge. She didn’t want to be super strong Aaron or super smart Kellee and she’s watched others to see who they are and Elaine says she doesn’t thinkt here was a strategy for Noura to play the game, she just played off emotion. Elaine says strategy and emotions don’t coincide. Noura says it’s like going on a date and she wants to learn more about them. Aaron and the jury are trying to stop Noura and Kellee says the jury thinks they were emotionally based decision, but they want to know Noura’s strategy. Noura says she actually wants to know people and who they are and see where they can meet in the middle.


    Tommy says for him it was about making connection and they were real. It’s like what he uses as a teacher for his students and he wanted to play in the middle. He wanted to be ears on all side. He also wanted to make big moves and he uses an example of Dean giving him information and him getting someone to play a idol. Loren asks Tommy who he was most loyal to and Tommy says Loren and Noura says Tommy isn’t telling the truth. Noura tells Loren that Tommy was helping Dean on the fire making challenge and trying to fluster her.


    Aaron says they are being held accountable and they are being given a chance to own their game. Dean says there were a lot of people he never worked with and Noura says Dean’s strategy was to go with the numbers. Dean says he played a different strategy than Tommy and Tommy says he played the game hard. He didn’t TS chill, he came in to get to know people and build connection and Dean just came along. Tommy says in this game you can’t ride coattails. Janet asks Tommy when he decided to betray her and Tommy says around eight he knew she was a threat but he wanted to use her as a shield and it wasn’t easy at all.


    Jamal says there are some lines he wasn’t willing to cross, but what were some of their lines they weren’t willing to cross. Noura says for her it was simple she wanted to be transparent. She didn’t want to make a move and regret it later.


    Tommy says when he talked to his students before he left, he told them he was going to do what he had to win but he never wanted to bully anyone because that was important to him.


    Dean says he never thought about it before he entered the game, but for him he would never promised final three and not honor it. Kellee doesn’t get Dean who he is or his essence. Dean says he’s just go with the flow, chill Dean. He tries to stay optimistic and he thinks people seen that. He says this was an incredible experience and never getting negative is big to him.


    Jeff moves to the outplay portion. How they deal with the condition or challenges or twists. Jamal says one of the most thought about moments of what they would do if they did final immunity. Jamal says how Noura explained Loren was fine, but the opposite of that logic is bringing someone she thinks she can beat. Noura says she brought Dean because his game was just following the numbers and he never made a big move and he had a weaker game. Jamal says she didn’t bring Dean, she brought Tommy. Noura says Tommy made her feel like he was so bad at fire and she trusted that. Jamal says Tommy is trying to make history and win from the goat role. Jamal says Dean earned his way to the final three. Tommy says he was able to spin the story that she was so focused on Loren and that saved him to get to the seat.


    Aaron wants to know their approach to immunity challenges. Noura says her tribe didn’t use her effectively and she enjoyed it better when they got to individual immunity. Dean says he gave his all in each challenge, but he didn’t want to turn it on early. Dean says did Tommy win any challenges? Tommy says yeah he didn’t win because that puts a target on people and he was all about social. He won a reward challenge and brought people to a family visit and that created a bond. Dean says Tommy showed a heck of a social game but it has zero advantages at idols or immunities. Dean explains his legacy advantage and he says it was a fake one and he asks Jamal about the advantage. Jamal explains that he was given parchment and a pen and he could use it as he wanted. Dean then shows them the immunity idol at final five that Tommy was looking for and he says he was blinged out at final five and he didn’t have to play any of them. Tommy says no one was going to vote him out. Tommy says he found advantages but he didn’t make moves. Aaron says Tommy is trying to downplay what Dean did and he shouldn’t do that and some of the jury disagrees.


    Missy wants to know if Tommy shared information and Tommy says yes. Missy says Dean made that all a benefit to him. Kellee says Tommy gave information to Dean because Tommy thought Dean was a goat and it’s a good social strategy. It starts to rain on the tribal council. Dean says he feels like he did execute playing the middle. Dean says he and Elisabeth were close. Kellee says when Jamal asked where were your ethical lines and now Dean is saying he was close with Elizabeth. Karishma says they are just calling him out. Noura says that’s what he does, follows the numbers. Dean says where is this coming from now? Kellee feels like they have a clean slate now that the rain has stopped.


    Jeff says time to go to the outlast portion. Tommy says Season 39 you have to play for day one and he built great relationships with each of them. Who do they want to represent Season 39? He made alliances, he crossed alliance, he didn’t need an immunity alliance and he still made big moves and he got here and that’s what he thinks Survivor is all about.


    Noura says for this is her, this is Noura. She says they loved her and hated her and they accepted her for her. She’s not a player they’ve ever seen before and she’s a wildcard and she’s done everything she can to use tool and win challenges and she felt like when she was herself it helped her thrive and that helped her get to here.


    Dean says we’re all lifelong fans. He says think about the jaw dropping moments and couple them with the moments when their backs were against the wall. Dean says that’s where he was the entire game and he found his way, he found his own path. And then the fourth quarter hit and he was sitting at the final five and if they can’t help etch that into the history books, then he doesn’t know what to do. He’s asking them to help write history with him.


    Jack is up first to vote. We see Missy go in. Loren goes in and we see she votes for Tommy. Karishma goes in followed by Kellee. Aaron goes in and he votes for Dean and says Dean played the game he wanted to play. Jamal steps in and says he’s voting for a winner of Survivor. Crazy. Elizabeth casts her vote. Elaine goes in followed by Janet.


    Jeff gets the votes and thanks them all and he’ll see them in Los Angeles for the reading of the votes. Time to read the votes. First vote…Tommy. Dean. Next vote Tommy. Next vote Dean. Tied at 2 votes each. Tommy. Tommy. 4 votes Tommy and 2 votes Dean. Tommy. 5 votes Tommy, 2 votes Dean. The winner of Survivor…Tommy!


    Tommy got all the votes except for the two for Dean from Aaron and Elizabeth.


    Jeff says it was cool to watch Tommy play and him talking about gathering information. Tommy says he was very open and real with people and they were comfortable giving him information. Jeff asks Sandra if that’s something you can teach someone? Sandra says no. Sandra says Tommy didn’t need Island of the Idols. Jeff talks about the everyone Tommy betrayed and is there any guilt when you watch it back. Tommy says he loves these people and they mean everything to him, but he was playing to win a million dollars. He was playing for his family and his students and say sorry later.


    Rob says this is Survivor. Rob says he’ll give Tommy credit that everyone who did come to Island of the Idols everyone said Tommy was their number one. Sandra says he told Rob everyone is with Tommy! Jeff says Dean, great fourth quarter surge. But what was a positive take away? Dean says it was the best life experience he’s ever had. It strips you down and there are moments where you hit your lowest of lows and it taught him to be grateful for everything they do have.


    Jeff goes to Noura and says despite her craziness, she was consistent every day. Noura says if you follow the herd, you’ll never be heard. She wanted to play the game her way. You can learn a lot from legends, but you have to be you and you have to be you day in and day out. Be a peacock, shake your tailfeather, and be you. Jeff says every so often there’s a player that comes around and captures the heart of the fans. Elaine was one of those players. Jeff says one of the reasons people adored her is because she was open and vulnerable. Did it deliver what she needed? Elaine says it did. She was searching for something else because of things she was going through. Elaine says God doesn’t always give you what you want, he gives you what you need.


    Jeff goes to Karishma and talks about the simple hug she gave her husband. Karishma says she knew she was going to have a tough time, but she didn’t expect how difficult the social game and the emotional turmoil that was going to come and when you reach those incredible moments of loneliness and you see the person from home who loves you for you and it just reminds you to appreciate what you have at home. Don’t focus on what you don’t have, focus on what you do have.


    Jeff then talks about Jamal and Jack and the doorag incident was one of the most talked about of the season. Jeff says one of the things people have said is what was so beautiful was that Jack was so open to apologize and teach him and instead of Jamal getting mad he agreed and it was a beautiful thing. Jamal says the response has been phenomenal. He says he and Jack live together now back in Rhode Island and they have a friendship out there and inside of that friendship is how they can have those hard conversations.


    Jeff says every season Sia awards her favorite player with the Sia gift. Her philosophy is she’s been blessed in life and she wants to do it for someone else. Jeff says Jamal gets $15,000 from Sia. Elaine also gets $100,000 from Sia. Elaine gets emotional. Jeff says they have one more. Sia would also like to gift $100,000 to Janet. Sia wanted Jeff to tell everyone it’s a birthday gift to herself because she’s at home watching.


    Jeff is now going to give Kellee a chance to speak because she wasn’t to before. He says they knew what was going on in and real time and they were trying to make the best decisions, but they have since learned they made mistakes and should have done things differently. They are instituting new policies and rules going forward.


    Jeff tells Kellee she was right to speak up and to step forward and he wants to acknowledge and apologize. He’d like to turn it over to her to vent at him or share his feelings. Kellee says she’s very nervous right now. There’s so much pressure on this moment and she feels like it’s been building up for many months and she feels pressure to do right for herself, but for many others as well.


    Jeff wants to give Kellee a chance to get anything off her chance that she’s not happy with Jeff or production. Kellee says the hardest thing was Dan remained in the game even after she spoke up. She says it’s not necessarily the injustice, but she felt like she was being supported or believed and that’s really the hardest thing to deal with. Jeff says what she just hit on is the biggest thing they learned. When she had her emotional interview and they made the decision to meet with them privately and they learned that wasn’t right. Jeff says he learned when you’re not in a situation like this, you can’t relate or understand. Jeff says Missy and Elizabeth got a flashback and none of them deserved it.


    Kellee says this has been such a hard situation and she didn’t ask for her Survivor experience to be defined by this and they can’t go back and change what happened. It wasn’t just her and people are ready at different times and speak up in different ways. Even though she was ready to speak up, it was still incredibly difficult. She thinks the most important thing is she hopes this season of Survivor isn’t just defined by inappropriate touching or sexual harassment. She hopes it’s defined by change. She says CBS and Survivor are making the changes because she spoke up and asked for changes. She says individuals and institutions are capable of change and she thinks they’ve learned a lot and they can keep learning. She hopes they can all learn from it and do better. She fundamentally believes they can do better. Jeff can feel how nervous she is and he feels like she expressed herself really well. Not only will CBS and Survivor change and he knows families will be watching and they can talk about these things with their kids.


    In February, they’ll premiere their 40th season. It’ll be called Winners at War. 20 returning winners. They’ll compete in epic challenges, face the return of the Edge of Extinction, and encounter a new twist that will completely reset how the game is played. Plus, they are playing for the biggest prize in reality show history. They’ll be playing for 2 million dollars. It’s the most anticipated Survivor season of all time.

Ricky is going to perform Runnin’ Down a Dream by Tom Petty. Kelly says this is her favorite finale and everything is represented. Everyone has their own little niche and she says Ricky did so well and his range was incredible. John says when he sings it feels vibrant and everyone is working for him.


    Blake says Ricky never let any of them down. Every time he gets on that stage they know he’s going to do something awesome and incredible. Blake says every time he performs he rolls up his sleeve and gets the job done. Well done!


    Jake Hoot from Team Kelly is next and he is going to perform his single Better Off Without You. This is his own song. Gwen says that was really great and it’s exciting to hear an original song and get to know more of him and his story through song. Her favorite thing has been watching him get relaxed each week and owning it. She can tell he’s embodying the whole experience.


    Kelly says Jake is really super humble and she has to pull it out of him. Kelly says he always puts himself on the backburner and that makes him an awesome human. Kelly says the power of being a writer as well as a singer is making connections with people who have had similar experiences.


    It’s time for our first coach/artist duo of the night. John Legend is going to join his artist Katie Kadan and they are going to perform Merry Christmas Baby by Otis Redding.


    Next is Rose Short from Team Gwen and she’s going to perform her single Steamroller. Blake says he doesn’t know if he’s ever heard of a better pairing of an artist with and original song and that song embodies everything she’s done on the show up to this point. It also showcases what an incredible singer she is. Gwen says she could see Rose was just so free and enjoying the moment and she seemed so sparkly and happy and that song told her story.


    Blake is going to take the stage now with his artist Ricky Duran and they are going to sing Run Run Rudolph by Chuck Berry.


    Team John’s artist Katie Kadan is next and she’s going to perform her original song called All Better. Kelly says she better go ahead with that sexy vibe.

    Kelly is going to take the stage with her artist Jake Hoot and they are going to sing Winter Song by Ingrid Michaelson and Sara Bareilles.


    Gwen is ready to sing with her artist Rose Short and they are going to sing My Gift is You by Gwen Stefani.


    Jake Hoot sits down with Carson and Kelly and discuss his journey on the show. Jake is going to perform Amazed by Lonestar. Gwen says she’s a fan and that was so beautiful and it’s such a pretty song. She loves that he was so relaxed and he’s shown so much growth. His voice is so familiar and comforting. Kelly says she loves him. He’s everything she grew up on in country music and his voice is magical and he’s so gifted.


    Katie Kadan sits down with Carson and John and they discuss her path to the finale. Katie is going to perform I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing by Aerosmith. Blake says he can’t get a word in because people love her so freaking much. He says once again unbelievable and there’s nothing else to say about how incredible she is. John says he’s so honored to get to work with her this season. She has dazzled everyone every single time and she’s been incredible every single time and she should be proud.


    Ricky Duran is ready to perform his debut single and it’s called A Woman Like Her. Kelly says Ricky reminds her of Bruce Springsteen because he is relatable and that was such a beautiful song. John says he was listening to that song and he was jealous he hadn’t been pitched that song. He says that was a great song and he has a feeling that will be the most streamed original song of the night.


    Blake says way to wait until the last competitive performance to give the best performance he has given the entire run. That was brilliant. Blake says America…Santa wants one thing from them this season and that’s to vote for Ricky!


    Rose Short is going to close out the night and she sits down with Gwen and Carson to remember her journey on the show. She’s going to perform Border Song by Elton John. John says what a beautiful message for the final song of her journey and for the final performance for all four of them. John says that was very special and ending with that message knowing her roots in gospel, it was a very beautiful moment.


    Gwen says Rose has known exactly what to do on this journey at every single turn and every moment and sometimes God puts a little extra drop of cool and talent. He did that with her because she is a magical human being.

John says she owns every performance.


    Kat Hammock from Team Blake is next and she is going to sing Somewhere Only We Know by Keane.

Gwen says she hopes Kat learns how gifted she is and she’s so unique and she needs to make records because she can have a whole career after this.

    Next up is Marybeth Byrd from Team John and she’s going to sing Before He Cheats by Carrie Underwood. Blake says that’s a tough vocal to tackle and she did a great job. Her journey on the show has been amazing to her, but he likes the country stuff personally. John says he almost didn’t recognize. He thought she got in the character so well and he also thought it was her best vocal performance and he thinks America lit a fire under her.


    Hello Sunday from Team Kelly is ready to perform next and they are going to sing Don’t You Worry “Bout a Thing by Steve Wonder.

    Our next duet is Marybeth Byrd from Team Blake and Jake Hoot from Team Kelly and they are going to sing Up Where We Belong by Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes. Jake says Marybeth’s voice has a soft fierceness about her, and Marybeth says Jake’s voice has an awesome growl.


    The next artist is Ricky Duran from Team Blake and he is going to sing Let It Be by The Beatles. Blake says he told him to use everything he had left in the gas tank and Blake says he just gave the vocal performance of the season.


    Will Bremen from Team John is our next artist and he’s going to perform Locked Out of Heaven by Bruno Mars. John says he wore his suit in honor of Will’s hair for the extra motivation. John says Will impresses him every week and his stage presence is so electric and magnetic and it’s so much fun to work with him and watch him.


    The next duet is Rose Short from Team Gwen and Katie Kadan from Team John and they are going to sing Express Yourself by Madonna. They are both 80s babies and they are excited to perform together.

    We’re kicking off the night with Rose Short from Team Gwen. She has brought her parents to meet Gwen. Rose has chosen to sing God’s Country by Blake Shelton. Rose gets an ovation from all four judges and she tells Carson that song is so hard. Blake says she killed it. He says it rethinks his entire arrangement. He says that was incredible.


    Kelly says she thought that performance was incredible because it’s a testament to both Rose and Blake’s talents because it’s a great song with a wide range. Kelly says it was classy and tasteful. Gwen says Rose looks stunning. Gwen says this all seemed meant to be and this song was her mom’s idea and she’s so proud of Rose.


    Marybeth Byrd from Team John is up next and she and the rest of his team go to his home and they meet his family. Marybeth is going to perform Lose You to Love Me by Selena Gomez. Kelly says this felt like the blinds because she couldn’t see her until the end, but it was very powerful. Kelly says it was beautifully done and she sounds very good.


    Gwen says she was floored by Marybeth. She says those kinds of songs are hard to do because they are specific to the artist and that was so good. She loved it. John says he was so happy watching that because they had talked about building the story and she didn’t over sing and it was such a great build. John says it was the most artistic performance she’s given so far.


    Next is Kat Hammock from Team Blake. Kat’s church members made her a video showing support. Kat has decided to sing You’re Still the One by Shania Twain. Gwen says that was magical, she is magical. Gwen loves that they can hear the air coming through her voice and it’s so unique and original. Gwen says no one is like her.


    John says every time Kat does a song she makes it her own. John says Kat does it so beautifully and with such taste. Blake says he’s running out of compliments for her. That has to be his new favorite performance from her. He says she’s like the angel on top of the Christmas tree breaking out in song.


    Kane Brown is taking the stage to perform his sing Homesick.  


    Shane Q from Team Kelly is ready for his performance. He’s going to perform the song Caribbean Queen (No More Love on the Run). This is one of his dad’s favorite songs. John says that was really good. He loved how he got big at the end and he sees him growing as a performer every week. It was really well done. Kelly loves that he chose the right time to come out of his shell. She loves him on stage and he is such an incredibly gifted singer.


    Next we have Jake Hoot from Team Kelly and this song is for his cousin who was a Marine and he was killed in Afghanistan. He’s going to sing That Ain’t My Truck by Rhett Akins. Gwen says she thinks that was his best performance he’s done. Gwen really believed he was a true country star.


    Blake says Kelly is doing an incredible job with Jake. He says he’s killing it. Kelly says she hasn’t done anything. She says his family will be so proud, he’s so good. She says it’s like watching his show.


    Joana Martinez from Team Gwen is set to take the stage. She’s the youngest of five and her siblings are some of her biggest supporters. She’s going to perform Impossible by Christina Aguilera. John says she is owning this moment and it’s fun to watch her physically convey her emotion. He says her confidence and poise and maturity are so far beyond her years. Gwen says she is her dream come true to watch her grow before her eyes. Gwen says she was very impressed with her tonight.


    Katie Kadan from Team John has decided to sing Rolling in the Deep by Adele. Katie talks about some of the jobs she’s had to work to make ends meet while she pursues her music career. Blake says he started creating conspiracy theories in his head because she just couldn’t be that good. He says someone can’t be this good and not have made it in the music industry.


    Kelly says Katie is so unique and it’s not only her voice but her voice inside that comes out. She lights a fire and makes everyone happy and she loves Katie’s growl. John says they were rehearsing Wednesday morning and the only person his family wanted to meet was Katie. John says he went to Target and he was getting gift wrap and someone walked up to him and said they were thinking about Katie on his team and they wanted to tell John how much they loved Katie.


    Hello Sunday from Team Kelly is up next and they have chosen the song Stone Cold by Demi Lovato. Kelly says that was so beautiful. She says a lot of people don’t know the depth of the conversation that was had that day…well done!


    Ricky Duran from Team Blake is set to take the stage. Ricky has chosen to perform Born Under a Bad Sign by Albert King. John says he’s incredible and he loved him in the blinds. He’s truly a fan of his. Blake wants everyone at home to take the remote right now and rewind the performance and try to find anything that’s not magical about it, from the singing to the guitar playing. If this guy doesn’t belong in the finale, he will kiss America’s collective butts.


    The final artist of the night is Will Bremen from Team John and he has chosen the song My Body by Young the Giant. Kelly wants to know where Will is playing after he’s done with the show because she’s going to show up. She says he’s incredible, this seemed like his show and everyone opened up for him.


    Gwen says she feels like the music lives inside Will and it’s like he has to get it out. It was so incredible and electric and she can’t wait to see what he’s going to do next. John says Will has shown so many sides of him as a performer and this was his favorite performance that he’s done. He says that song was perfect for his voice and he just slayed it.
