  1. The all-star battle is underway and tonight, the game claims it’s first victim. Previously, on Big Brother All-Stars, Cody became the first HOH of the summer and he used his power to make working relationships with Memphis, Tyler, and Nicole F. He also locked in a final two deal with Enzo. With the game underway, another alliance quickly formed. At the first nomination ceremony, Cody went after two outsiders. Looking for allies, Kevin offered his allegiance to Cody. At a totally bananas veto competition, Enzo stacked his way to gold. Cody and Enzo considered using the veto to take out a bigger target, but ultimately the root thought it was too soon to make waves. Tonight, either Keesha or Kevin will be the first all-star evicted from the game. Plus, tonight new alliances start to emerge and a new HOH will be crowned! Julie greets us and welcomes us to Big Brother All-Stars. It’s day 8 and as soon as Janelle and Kaysar secured their safety and Cody was put in a tough spot. As a result, Keesha and Kevin’s Big Brother lives hang in the balance. As the eviction looms, some have already started building their army. We pick up on Day 6 after the veto meeting and Enzo says he didn’t use the veto so Cody didn’t get more blood on his hands, but there are bigger threats that need to be taken care of. Kevin hopes his relationships will help him survive this week’s eviction. Keesha says she needs to stay cool and calm and she has to figure out a way to stay in the house because she doesn’t want to be the first all-star to leave. Cody says his goal was to come out of the week with no target on his back. He wants the house to make a decision that Kevin is better to stay so he doesn’t have to tell them. Christmas and Janelle are talking and they are saying people don’t want to talk. Janelle says it’s better for her and Kaysar’s game for Keesha to stay. She says the old Janelle would shout from the balcony that Keesha needs to stay and get the numbers, but she can’t do that this time. Cody says he and Memphis have a bond because they both were loyal to a final two and both ended up losing. Memphis pitches calling themselves The Commission. Cody likes it and he says they make it official. Bayleigh and Tyler are talking and they are trying to smooth things over. Tyler says last time they played they were on opposite sides of the house and things didn’t end well. Tyler says coming into the house he needs to make sure they are cool and she’s not gunning for him right off the bat. Tyler apologizes to Bayleigh and she says his game play was good. She says they just need to figure stuff out. Bayleigh says she doesn’t want things to be awkward, but this is a new game and all the old feelings need to go. Tyler says it could work since everyone thinks they don’t like each other. Christmas, Janelle, and Keesha are talking and Kaysar says they have shaker bottles with their names on it. Janelle gets up and knocks stuff over because of her star. Kevin is talking to Nicole A in the hammock about the game. Kevin is making a final two with Nicole. Nicole says her and Kevin are very outcast and very rainbow and she doesn’t want him to leave this week because she wants to go to the end with him. Memphis and Cody are talking. Memphis says he and Cody want to build another layer below them to protect The Commission. He says it’s risky to get six people together in a room without talking to them individually, so he wants to play the telephone game. He suggests Christmas, Tyler, Dani, and Nicole F. Cody says if Memphis wants to do the work and if it comes out it will be Memphis’s idea. Memphis can be Cody’s shield. We see Memphis pitching to Tyler, then Dani, then Nicole F, and finally Christmas. Tyler says it sounds great, Dani is down with that, Christmas likes it, and Nicole F says it’s a great idea. Nicole says she wants to be a part of that. Julie welcomes us back and says both Keesha and Kevin failed to make strong connections in the house. And now the others must decide who is best for their game. Janelle and Keesha are talking. Keesha says she needs seven votes to stay. Keesha says she might be able to get Taylor and Janelle says who? Keesha says what’s his name? Trevor? Janelle says Tyler. Da and Cody are talking about an alliance. Cody says he likes The Commission with Memphis and he’s been working with Enzo, but he wants another side alliance and working with Enzo, Bayleigh, and Da could work for him. Da says this could be perfect because Cody and Enzo could be shields for them…and if they get chopped along the way? That’s just part of the process. Cody says this eviction is not a slam dunk, so he’s listening to what people he’s trying to align himself with because he wants to know the ripple effects. Christmas thinks Keesha might be easier to beat in competition. Christmas doesn’t have a relationship with either, but she thinks Keesha would be easier to beat. Da is talking to Cody and she thinks Kevin staying would be better. Memphis thinks Keesha could be good for them. Nicole F says if Memphis can control Keesha, then she might be better for their game. Cody says with The Commission and then Enzo, Bayleigh, and Da, it seems like they have the numbers and they can take the house any direction they want. Julie greets the HG and says it’s time. It’s time for the first vote and eviction of the summer. Keesha and Kevin each have a final chance to sway votes. Keesha says it’s been great to be here with everyone. It’s been amazing and they have to do what’s best for them. She does want to say she feels some energy, that being said, she wishes most of them the best of luck. Kevin says Alfonso, I love you and he looks forward to another 20 years together. He says coming into the house he felt like a little comet compared to some of the super novas. He says they helped him find his inner light and if they keep him, then they can let their light shine together. Cody will not vote as HOH and Keesha and Kevin will not vote. David is up first. David votes to evict Keesha. Nicole A votes to evict the lovely Keesha. Ian sadly votes to evict Keesha. The current vote is 3-0 to evict Keesha. Clearly, she has a lot of ground to make up. Julie welcomes us back and it’s time to continue voting. Nicole F. sadly votes to evict Keesha. Tyler votes to evict Keesha. Christmas votes to evict sweet Keesha. Kaysar sadly votes to evict the kind Keesha. Bayleigh sadly votes to evict Keesha. Da’Vonne sadly votes to evict the beautiful, iconic all-star Keesha. Janelle sadly votes to evict Keesha. Enzo votes to evict Keesha. Dani votes to evict Keesha. Memphis votes to evict Keesha. By a unanimous vote of 13-0, Keesha has been evicted from the Big Brother house. Julie asks the evicted HG to socially distance and go straight to the chair across from Julie and please put on their mask. Keesha gives everyone a hug and she’s crying. She puts her mask on she gives Da a hug and walks out the door. Julie says Keesha shouldn’t feel bad about the 13-0 vote. Julie says she played 10 years ago and she was America’s favorite HG and made final four and she’ll always have that. Julie asks if she’s surprised by Memphis not voting to keep her and she says no, it’s early in the game. Julie asks why Keesha wished most of the HG luck and Keesha says some avoided her and some said they were on her side or they would come to her and let her know. Julie wants to know if she wants to name names and Keesha says Cody and Enzo said they’d let her know but then they avoided her in every room. Janelle says she had so much fun with Keesha and she loves her and they just didn’t have the votes. She will miss her so much. Memphis says this time with a lot less tears and it was great seeing her. Kevin says she’s been the sweetest person to be up against. He’s sad to see her go and he hopes to see her soon. Da says she sorry. She wanted to play with her but it didn’t work out that way. She says she’s sorry, she loves her though. Julie says it was lovely to see Keesha and thanks her for coming back. She tells her to stay in her seat because she wants a pic with her. Up next is the HOH competition! It’s time for the HOH competition! This competition is called Big Brother Watch Party. Julie is going to show them two videos from a family of fans taking part in a watch party. After the video, she’ll ask questions about what they saw. If they get it right, they stay in the game. Get it wrong and they are eliminated. The last all star standing after seven questions will be crowned the new HOH. True or False, when Granny first appeared she was directly above Uncle Vito. Kaysar and David answer false and everyone else says True. Kaysar and David have been eliminated. True or False, Billy was the first character to speak. Dani and Enzo answer true. Everyone else answers false. Enzo and Dani have been eliminated from the competition. True or False, Uncle Vito had a beach background photo before he had a White House background photo. Nicole F and Christmas answer False. Everyone else answers true. Nicole F and Christmas are eliminated. Time for the second video. True or False, the poster behind Billy read Hot Buns Tour. Everyone answers true except for Kevin who answers false. Kevin has been eliminated. True or False, when Uncle Vito was recording himself singing Sexy Uncle Vito, the phone he was holding was in his left hand. Ian and Janelle answer true and everyone else answers false. Janelle and Ian have been eliminated. True or false, there was a flower vase on the toilet behind granny. Memphis answers true and everyone else answers false. The answer is true and Memphis is the new HOH! Julie asks Memphis how it feels and he says it feels good. Julie asks what he’s looking forward to seeing the most in his HOH. Memphis says a letter from his son and pictures and he’s never been HOH. Julie turns to Kevin and asks how he feels and he says it was his worst nightmare but thank you! Janelle says she has her first punishment and she can’t wait to get out of it. Julie gives a sneak peek at the Safety Suite competition and she says they’ll go to the bar. We’ll see that competition Sunday and who Memphis nominates for eviction.
  2. Previously, on Big Brother All-Stars, with 16 returning players off to the racers, the battle for the half million dollar grand prize was underway and Cody took a crucial first step. With power on his side, Cody quickly solidified some allies on his side. First Nicole, then Tyler, then Memphis, then the miao miao. Cody considered targeting some old school legends, but a safety twist changed things up. When Janelle and Kaysar didn’t get the assurances they were looking forward, they both declared their intentions to play for safety. At the first ever Safety Suite competition, it was a Twinkle Twinkle show down and Kaysar earned safety for the week, but he wouldn’t be alone. So Janelle was also safe, with one little caveat. With Janelle and Kaysar no longer eligible for nomination, Cody went with two other old school players instead. Tonight is the first veto competition of the season. Will Keesha or Kevin be saved? And is there a bigger target waiting in the wings? We pick up on day 2 after the nomination ceremony. Kevin asks everyone not to shun him. Cody says he doesn’t have a good relationship with Keesha and Kevin and he’s super excited to kick off the game of Big Brother. This is all-stars so let’s get the game going. Nicole F. says it would have been cool if Cody could nominate Janelle or Kaysar, but with the safety suite it wasn’t an option. She doesn’t trust Janelle as far as she could throw her. Kevin says he’s embarrassed and he feels like he’s letting people down. But he needs to set that aside and play the game. We see him talking to Cody. Cody says Kevin was a safe nomination, but he wants to do damage control because he could see himself working with Kevin. Kevin isn’t sure if he trusts Cody, but he wants to smooth this over and not drown and keep swimming. Cody and Kevin hug it out and Kevin leaves. Janelle and Kaysar are talking and Janelle says she feels bad for Keesha. Kaysar says it would have been one of them. Janelle says it sucks Keesha is nominated, but the best game move for her and Kaysar is to lay low. Nicole F is talking to Cody and Keesha is coming up. Cody doesn’t know if he wants to talk to her and Nicole F leaves. Keesha says it smells good in the HOH. Cody says he’s so sorry, he has nothing against her. She says it’s not personal. Cody says he didn’t know what to grab out and she asks what he DID grab out. Keesha says so I’m not necessarily your target and Cody says he’s letting the house decide. Cody tells us he’d rather Keesha go home because he doesn’t see them working together. Keesha says this conversation is not reassuring her at all. Kaysar is talking to Da’Vonne and he says he feels like she came back a lot more relaxed. Kaysar talks about his experience in season 6. Nicole A is also in the room. Kaysar says the world is crazy and people have lost their minds and he says he’s not happy with where they are as a society. Kaysar says people are shouting because no one has been listening in the first place. Kaysar gets emotional. Kaysar tells us he’s become a father since he was on the show last and he wants his son to grow up in a better world. Da says when they have conversations about this, it isn’t about the game. It’s about people being able to relate and using their platform for something good. Tyler is talking Nicole F and he tells us he didn’t want to be jumping into a million different alliances. But this is Big Brother and people come up to you with a deal, you don’t say no. We then see Tyler talking Da, and then Kaysar, and Christmas, and then David, and then Memphis. Tyler says he has a deal with pretty much everyone and then we see him talking to Janelle. He says he knows down the road this is going to come back to get him. Enzo goes to the HOH with Cody. Enzo says they are going to work together and he wants to take him to the final two. Cody is his guy. Enzo thinks maybe Kevin should stay and Cody agrees. Enzo wants to name their alliance The Roo. Cody says he’s still really loyal to Nicole, but he’s going to stick with Enzo to end. He was loyal to his final two and that’s what him got to the end, but this time he’s taking him to the 500 grand. Enzo, Ian, Nicole A, Kevin, and Nicole F are talking about wanting the backyard. Ian says people complained about him rocking on the hammock during his season. Ian says he’s on the spectrum and he’s not ashamed it, but he leads a normal light. He’s pretty uncomfortable right now because being on the spectrum isn’t his identity. Kevin says that could be a huge inspiration for kids who have that. Nicole A says that is so important to talk about so people can understand more about it. Nicole says she’s seen the misconceptions and the biases and she wants people to know it’s not a limitation and something that holds you back. Kevin, David, and Enzo are in the bathroom area. Kevin is looking for someone who might help him and play in the veto competition. He tries to talk to Enzo, but David comes out of the WC and washes his hand and Enzo goes into the WC. Kevin says he probably shouldn’t try to make allies in the bathroom. When Enzo comes out and Kevin tells him he would never come for him and he’s asking if it comes to HG choice and Enzo says yeah because Kevin makes him laugh. Enzo says Kevin is a good kid, but he’s scared and looking for allies. Ian comes into the bathroom and Enzo heads off to bed and Kevin wants to ask Ian something. Kevin says he doesn’t want to put Ian in a bad situation but would he consider HG choice and Ian says it’s a tricky situation. Ian heads off to bed and Kevin is by himself and says he doesn’t know what to do. Kevin is getting emotional and says he must have done something wrong. Time to pick players for the veto competition! Only six people will compete: the HOH, the two nominees, and three others selected by random draw. Cody draws first and he picks Tyler. Kevin reaches in and draws HG choice and asks if Enzo is cool playing and Enzo says let’s go. He’s surprised Kevin picked him, but he feels like Kevin has nobody. Keesha reaches in she tells us she’s hoping for Kaysar or Janelle because they have her back and they need to stick together because they are from the older seasons. Keesha draws Ian. Kevin says he’s so nervous because his life is on the line and this is a huge deal. The only person he can trust is himself and he needs to win this. Da’Vonne says it’s time for the first veto competition and tells them to get in their workout gear. There are big bananas with saddles on them. When the clock begins they will hop on their bananas. When they hit 20 reps they get 90 seconds and they can stack their produce in their basket. To get more time they need to get back on their banana. When they think they’ve stacked enough produce to win, they should lock in their time. The person to stack the most produce in the fastest time will win. The class is only 30 minutes long and they must lock in a score before time is up. Kevin wants to prove he’s an all-star and can carry his own. Keesha says she needs to win this because there’s a very good chance she’s going home. Cody wants to win this so he can make sure nominations stay this same. Ian wants to win because there is no sure thing in this house. He thinks the best way to get the banana moving is to use the back and forth motion. Enzo says it’s his first time straddling a giant banana. He says he knows they are going to put music behind it and make it go slow motion. Tyler recaps the rules and he says he feels safe with Cody but he promised he’d never throw a competition. Better safe than sorry. Kevin is thinking he needs to get as many veggies and fruits as possible and have as many points of contact and as straight as possible to stack. Cody’s time is running out and he drops and has to run back to his banana. Keesha drops one. Tyler drops all of his. Enzo drops a few and Ian drops and they have to go back. Enzo has 17 and then 18 and then they all fall. He says he’s not going to get frustrated. He says it’s like playing Jenga. Bayleigh tells him to watch his clock. Kevin says he has 16, should he lock it in? No, this is all-stars. Cody has 14 and he wants to get more before he locks in and he drops. Kevin had 19 and they fell while he was on the banana. Keesha was at 14 and they fall. 10 minutes remaining. Enzo had 17 but then some feel and he was down to 8. Cody decides he’s going to use the grapes and carrots while adding…and his clock runs out and he is now eliminated. Ian says Kevin has more stacked and he just wants to add a few more before hitting his button but his clock runs out of time also. Enzo says he’s looking around and he has 18 pieces so he’s going to go ahead and clock in. It’s down to Tyler, Kevin, and Keesha. Tyler says he needs two more placed and hit the buzzer and veto is his. Tyler’s stack drops. Kevin has 19, but Keesha is still in this so he wants to keep going. Keesha is at 14 and then 15. Kevin’s clock runs out and he doesn’t hit his buzzer in time and he’s now eliminated. Kevin says his shot is over. It’s done. He’s actually embarrassed. It’s down to Keesha and Tyler with 10 seconds. Keesha says it’s really close. If she can stop shaking she’s got this. Tyler drops and then Keesha drops. Enzo has won the Power of Veto! Enzo says let’s go! Papa got the bling bling. He did this for his kids. Keesha says losing is really disappointing and she doesn’t know where Enzo’s head is and she’s so bummed. Cody couldn’t be happier and they can figure out what to do with the veto that is best for their game. Kevin says he stacked more than Enzo and choked. #BB22 Nicole A is talking to Ian about their significant others. Ian says Nicole is definitely the person he trusts the most, but they’ve known each other for five years and they are the only winners in the game. Ian says their best chance of winning this season is against each other. Nicole agrees and Ian says they have made a final two deal. Ian wants to make sure he’s the first two time winner of Big Brother. Nicole says her top allegiance is to Cody, but it’s important to have a back-up plan. Cody comes into the HOH and conversation becomes awkward. Enzo and Kevin are alone in the SR. Kevin is glad he won because maybe he’ll feel obligated to win veto. Maybe he can talk to him and dig himself out of this situation. Enzo says he’ll talk to Cody and see what he says. Kevin says he just didn’t want to put Enzo in a bad spot and he really appreciates Enzo talking to Cody. Kevin says Enzo won’t do anything without Cody’s blessing. He says he’ll do anything to smooth things over with Cody so Enzo can use veto. Kevin goes to talk to Cody and they are talking about the veto. Kevin asks if there is a scenario he can see them working together and Cody says 100%. Cody says he wants Kevin to stay this week and he would love to work with him. Kevin says he’s grasping at straws right now and if he won HOH and he’d keep Cody safe. Cody says Kevin is offering up a pretty suite deal and it would be crazy not to consider taking Kevin off, but he really doesn’t have a good reason to put someone else up instead. Da is talking to Bayleigh and they are talking about being on the same team. Bayleigh says Da’s victory is her victory. Bayleigh says she’s been a fan of Da and she wanted to work for her and this is a dream come true. She says this is more than she could have asked for. Da says her and Bayleigh is a force to be reckoned with and so is she and this is black girl magic at it’s best. Nicole and Ian are in the bathroom area whispering and they are checking to see if anyone is watching and Enzo pops around. Enzo says he knows what’s going on. Enzo immediately goes to tell Cody that Nicole F is with Ian. Enzo says he doesn’t trust Ian. He likes him, but he doesn’t trust him. Cody says we can’t forget this kid is a winner. Cody says Enzo is right. Ian is a wild threat. Ian went against one of the best players to play the game and beat him. Maybe this would be a good time to get Enzo to use the veto and maybe this is the time to make some moves. It’s time for the veto meeting! Keesha and Kevin have been nominated for eviction, but Enzo can veto one of the nominations. He has decided…not to use the power of veto! He says it’s just too early. This veto meeting is adjourned! Enzo says he wanted to pull a big move. Maybe a backdoor, but it’s just not the right time. It’s only week 1 and the miao miao still has a lot of game to play. Kevin says not coming off the block isn’t the great thing, but he’s built a relationship with Cody and Enzo and they both have power. Keesha says at this point her social game is in full effect and she wants to charm the pants off everyone. Da says Cody did what was expected of the first HOH. But this is all-stars and she doesn’t think the house is going to stay calm. A storm is coming!
  3. Previously, on Big Brother, in a move-in like no other, 16 all stars entered the house to compete for a half million dollars. Safely inside the bubble of the house, 6 all-stars won an initial competition to compete for the HOH. While the Jersey boy will be living large in the HOH, 4 all-stars will be the have-nots. Tonight, the safety suite is open for business. How will it impact the all-stars? Tonight, Cody will get blood on his hands. Plus, will they ever get into the have-not room? All this tonight on Big Brother! We are on day 1 and Julie welcomes them back. Kaysar asks how much time passes before people start fighting. Cody tells us he didn’t immediately want to put a target on his back, but he didn’t want to go home week one. The HG are looking at the various photos in the house. Da says to be in the house with people like Kaysar, Janelle, and Ian is intimidating, but she’s going to shine. She’s going to make it to the end this time. Believe that! Ian says he wanted to win HOH because coming in as one of two winners he wanted to be safe. But there’s more than one way to stay safe. Janelle says she’s the first four time player in BB history which is pretty cool. Janelle says she and Kaysar played together back-to-back and they were aligned. She hasn’t had much of a chance to talk to him, but she can trust him. Nicole says it’s strange to be in the house as an all-star. Enzo says he’s ecstatic. It took a decade to get back in. He’s so ready to play this game again. The Miao Miao is back. Nicole and Da are talking and Nicole thanks Da for changing her life because she was the final vote for her to win and she’s not going to forget that and she wants to make that up to her this season. Nicole leaves the room and Da rolls her eyes. Da says Nicole wasn’t her ally and she’ll never get to cross her twice. Cody tells the have-not room is now open for them and they all head upstairs. Kevin, Nicole, Ian, and Memphis are not impressed with their room. They say it’s awful. Kaysar is talking to David and his reason to play the game is because there are no black winners. Kaysar says the players are more social and a lot more strategic and he needs to find a way to connect with people. Nicole is talking to Cody and she says she’s not nervous with him as HOH. She thinks they could be a duo to reckon with. Cody says he feels confident with Nicole because she can get along with some people he may not. Cody says he’s thinking Keesha. Nicole says she’s so sweet, but she supports whatever he wants. Nicole says she’ll try to make a girls alliance and she’ll tell him everything. Nicole mentions Janelle and Kaysar and Cody says he is thinking about throwing them up because they both are good at comps. Tyler is pumped Cody got HOH. They both got second place and he’s cool with Cody winning. Cody says he likes Tyler, but he needs to see if he opens up to him. Trust goes a long way in this game and Tyler has to prove he deserves the trust. Cody calls everyone to the LR because BB has a HUGE announcement. As Julie told them, they are getting access to a new room this summer. It’s time to find out this works. For the next three weeks, the Safety Suite will be open for a limited time and inside is a special competition. You can only enter the safety suite once. Once you use your pass, you can never enter the suite again. When you enter is up to each HG. There is more at stake than just safety! The winner will get to name a plus one. They will also be safe, but they will have to endure a special all-star punishment for the entire week. Enzo says the safety suite can be protection. If the miao miao feels he’s in trouble, then he’ll use the pass. Bayleigh says if you win, then you’re safe. But if you don’t win it could put a target on you. Cody says it’s already hard to pick two people to be noms and this safety thing takes two options off the block. Keesha is in the restroom area and she’s sniffing the soap. She says the Safety Suite adds a new layer to Big Brother. Kaysar says she seems stressed. Keesha says it’s tough to know because if you don’t win, then you’re a sitting duck. Kaysar says he’s trying not to stick out. Kaysar tells us he has no idea what Cody has in mind. He needs to talk to him and see what he’s thinking. The Safety Suite is now open! If you want to enter, you can swipe your VIP pass at the door. You have ONE HOUR to decide. Kevin says he wants to get a good seat to see who competes. Dani says she’s never played the game where she’s not one of the main people being targeted. She says it’s too early in the game and she just wants to lay low. Enzo tells Cody he isn’t going to compete and Cody says he’s good. Enzo says people are shook right now. There is 53 minutes left. David says after leaving first last year, the Safety Suite is looking pretty good. David says if you swipe the card you let the house know you feel safe and you put your cards out there. Bayleigh and Da are talking about how nervous David is. Ian says in 45 minutes everyone in the house will have made a game decision. Keesha and Janelle are saying they don’t feel safe. Janelle says she doesn’t think Keesha is on his radar, she thinks it’s her. Janelle tells us she’s freaking out. She doesn’t know if she should play this week or not. 40 minutes left. Cody is talking to Kaysar and Kaysar wants to see if there is overlap in their game play. He says he has no relationship with Cody and he has to try and build something out of thin air. Cody says he doesn’t have previous relationships and Kaysar says him and Janelle were an alliance 15 years ago. Kaysar pitches an alliance with Cody and Cody doesn’t wants to be the one starting an alliance because everyone is going to say yes since he’s HOH. Cody tells us he sees Kaysar’s brain working. Kaysar tells us he has red flags from their conversation. 21 minutes remain on the clock. Janelle is talking to Cody and she says no one wants to be the first one to talk to him. She asks him what he thinks of everyone. Cody says he doesn’t know. He says there’s a safety suite and a ton of people. Cody says Janelle is a tough competitor and she definitely raises a flag for him. Cody says it’s tough trying to form relationships right now. Janelle tells us her gut instinct is that Cody has something in the works. Janelle says Cody doesn’t give her a clear answer and she’s just not buying what he’s selling. 5 minutes on the clock. Memphis goes in to talk to Cody and Cody says they both played similar games. Memphis says if they can get through the next couple of weeks, then they can create a bigger alliance. Memphis tells us this makes sense to him. Cody and Memphis talk about Janelle and Kaysar and Memphis says Janelle scares him. Memphis says they have different game play and a different mindset. Keesha doesn’t know if she wants to swipe her card or not because she doesn’t want to make herself a target. Keesha doesn’t think anyone is going to play. The clock is counting down and it’s less than a minute. Kaysar sees the clock at 34 seconds and he gets up and heads upstairs. Tyler is telling Kaysar there is only 5 seconds and Kaysar swipes his card and Janelle swipes right after. Cody sees they are the two playing in the Safety Suite and he’s frustrated because he was thinking they could nominate them. Janelle says sorry to ruin your plans Cody. It’s going to take more moves than that and a better lying ability to get her out of the house. Kaysar goes into the Safety Suite and it has a DJ booth and some chairs and a couch. In this week’s competition, they’ll be mixing rhythm’s and dropping sick beats. When they’re ready they will their start button and it’s basically a game of Simon Says. The player who successful builds the song they hear in the quickest amount of time will win. Kaysar says he knows Cody is up to no good, so he has to change the course of the game. He hears a remix version of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. He then gets to hit each button to hear a section of the song. After he hears each one, he then gets to try. He hits the first button and then misses on the second. He starts again and misses again. Kevin and Dani are talking with Tyler and Dani says it’s a huge target on their backs and Kevin says Janelle is an icon. We see Kaysar trying again and he says he feels the pressure of the clock, but he wants to win and send a message that he’s here to play. He gets it right and smoke comes up. Kaysar says he doesn’t’ know if he did good enough to win. He hopes he was fast enough. Janelle enters the suite. She says winning this competition is a ton of power. She knows she’s one of the biggest targets in the house, but she didn’t leave her amazing career and family to go home week one. That is just not happening. She gets the first two buttons right but misses on the third. She says this is incredibly difficult. We see her make several attempts. She says DJing is rough! She finally gets it and she says to ensure her safety week one would be huge. Cody calls everyone to the LR for the results of the Safety Suit competition. Kaysar finished with a time of 7:55. Janelle finished with a time of 16:36. Kaysar has won safety for the week! Cody says Kaysar gets to name a plus one and they are also safe but must endure a punishment. Kaysar stands and he chooses Janelle as his plus one. Cody says of course Kaysar wins and picks Janelle for the week. Now he has to go in and pick two nominees and this decision is going to be even more difficult. Janelle says she’s safe for the week and she’s never had a punishment in the BB house and that makes her nervous. Kaysar says he feels like he has to teach these kids a lesson. You mess with the bull and you get the horns. He needs to take them down and he’s going to enjoy every second of it. Kaysar is celebrating. He says he’s safe and he feels like he can think clearly again and he trusted his instincts. He sent a message he’s not going to be taken out like that. Nicole is talking to Cody and she asks what he wants to do. Cody says he’s thinking Kevin and Keesha. Cody doesn’t see himself working with Keesha and that makes her an easy choice and he and Kevin haven’t connected. Janelle is called to the DR and she gets to be the BB All-Star mascot. She’s wearing a yellow star and yellow cone hat. She says she looks sparkly and she thinks she looks cute in yellow. She says it’s one of the cutest punishments. David says she looks like a teletubbie. Enzo says she looks good and he doesn’t want anywhere near that. Kevin wants to talk to Cody. He’s super nervous about nominations because he doesn’t know Cody. He says Cody is so intimidating. Kevin tells Cody he was never a cool person and it’s hard for him to have conversations with people who are different than him. He says Cody is so kind and nice and Kevin is so flawed and hes getting emotional. Cody says he feels bad and he gives Kevin a hug. Kevin says he wants to get to know him and Cody hugs him again. Cody says this is so hard. He listened to what Kevin had to say and it hit him in all the right spots. He says but to play this game, you have to separate emotions from game. He goes to sit in his HOH restroom and he sighs and thinks. Nominations are today! Cody calls everyone in for the Nomination Ceremony. He comes in with the key block. It’s his duty as HOH to nominate two people for eviction. Cody’s first nominee is…Keesha. Cody’s second nominee is…Kevin. Cody has nominated them because as the first HOH he didn’t get a chance to form strong relationships with them. Keesha says she thought she might be going up but it was a huge wake up call. She says it would be so devastating to be out first. Kevin says sorry Keesha, it’s going to be her not him. He needs to win veto and snatch himself off the block and then come for Cody. He’s going to get revenge. Cody says the nominations aren’t personal at all, it’s just game. He wants to get the least amount of blood on his hands and not ruffle feathers. Kaysar says he single handedly changed nominations. He says it’s been so long, but it feels good to be back in this house. Who will win the POV? And will it be used to save either Keesha or Kevin? Find out Wednesday night on Big Brother All-Stars!

Another unforgettable summer is about to begin so buckle up and get ready for BB All-Stars! For the first time ever, tonight’s episode is happening completely live. We have winners. We have legends. We have some of the best players who never won the game. They are all entering the house with something to prove. They are going to face an opening night like no other. Time to reveal who will be moving back into the house! Nicole Franzel from BB16 and BB18 is the first HG.

She is now married to Dominic from BB13 and they have a 2-year old daughter. She’s most known for her comp wins. She won 4 HOH’s and 5 vetoes and she holds the record for most vetoes. She is always associated with someone she played with in the past. She says this is her season to win BB and she thinks she deserved to win before. Da’Vonne from BB17 and BB18. She’s now a teacher and she teaches Shakespeare. She says the first time she was on she was the second person evicted. Season 18, she was the first member of the jury. She says her problem is she talks too much and she needs to work on that. Christmas Abbott is from BB19. She now has a son named Loyal and he has changed her perspective on everything. Everything she does now is online. Her strategy for BB19 was to be a comp beast, but she broke her foot on day 13. She played a complete social game and she says she has a lot to prove going back into the house. She wants to show them full throttle Christmas and she wants to dominate the house. The HG are in the studio with Julie and they are wearing masks. They’ve all been quarantined for two weeks and they’ve been tested multiple times and they are all cleared to play. They will have no live audience this season. They can remove their masks once they enter. Da’Vonne is excited to see people. Dani says she thought at first she’d be back, but after nine years she never thought she’d back. Julie says they’ve all played BB before, but they’ve never faced a night like this. The competition begins as soon as they step inside and only the first two to finish will advance to the HOH later. When they enter the house, they will have to run to the backyard to find a question. They need to search the house for the answer and then go to the backyard again and use their game board to roll a ball to the correct answer. The first two to lock-in will get a chance to play for the first HOH. They only have four minutes to play this game. Julie tells them they can enter the house. Nicole says her legs are jell-o. The question is in which room are these porcelain dogs. All four head outside at the same time. Christmas drops her ball and has to restart. Dani drops her ball and begins again. Da is struggling with the board. Nicole drops. Dani has her ball moving and she says the puzzle board is heavy. Da’s ball slides off and she has to start again. Christmas is making progress. Nicole drops again. Dani is making progress. Christmas is close to where she wants to drop. Christmas drops her ball in Living Room and she locks in and she’s correct. She tells them slow and steady. She tells them there are multiple routes. One minute left. Nicole is frustrated with herself. Christmas tells them slow and steady. Julie tells them 30 seconds left. Da is struggling and drops again. Time is up! Only Christmas will advance to the HOH comp later tonight. Nicole hugs Christmas and so do Dani and Da. They’ll find out later tonight who they are competing with, but for now they will be hidden away. Time to meet the next four! Tyler from BB20 is back. He met the love of his life, Angela, so he’s the real winner. He says going into the house this time is going to be totally different. He feels like a major flaw in his game was he wrote too many checks he couldn’t cash. In the end, it came back to bite him and he got second place. He wants to go back and win and prove he’s one of the greatest players. Ian from BB14 and he won that season. He’s grown up a lot. He has a real job and a girlfriend, he’s not a kid anymore. His first season he was extremely competitive. He won 4 HOH”s and 2 vetoes to save his hide. He sat final two next to one of the greatest to ever play and beat him 6-1. His strategy is going to be a little different. He’s going to hibernate for weeks and then turn on his competition side at the end. He thinks he can beat up on anyone at this game. Kevin from BB11 is on and he came in third place. He was younger when he played before, but now he’s a senior creative director at an ad agency. He has another side…Anita Veto. He recently got married to his partner of 20 years. He feels like his legacy was to backstab America’s sweetheart. He was one competition away from winning BB11. He should have been a former winner, but now he’ll be the next winner. Enzo from BB12 and he was third place and a member of The Brigade. Last time he started one of the greatest alliances of all time. They dominated the entire season. His biggest mistake was getting to the end with two dudes who were better than him physically. He didn’t win may comps, but now he’s in the best shape of his life so he will win some comps. He promises you that. He’s a genius, a mastermind. He’s going to do him and win this. The miao miao is back. Julie asks them in one word, what will it take to get back to finale night. Kevin says anything. Tyler says no clue. Ian says luck. Enzo says Pop Dukes. His father. Julie tells them about the first competition. Julie sends them in and they all head to the backyard and they have to find the room with some blue pillows. They are in the bath area and they are all back out with Kevin last. Tyler drops and has to restart. Ian is close to his answer. Ian settles it in and is the first to lock in. Kevin drops and has to start over. Enzo is moving very quickly. Kevin is moving slowly. Tyler is making progress and is close but drops again. Julie tells them to breathe, relax, and concentrate. Ian is quiet and pacing. Kevin drops into the answer and rings in second. Ian and Kevin will compete against Christmas in the HOH competition. Julie is going to reveal a twist that will allow not one, but two HG to be safe on eviction night. So far 8 HG have begun the battle for a half million dollars. Here’s the next four women! Janelle from BB6, BB All-Stars, and BB14. She now has three daughters and she has a real estate business. Her BB legacy is most comp wins in a season and that she got rid of Dr. Will in All-Stars. She says the other all-stars should fear her. She’s been final three twice and she’s one of the best to never win. She wants to prove you can be a great competitor and a great BB player no matter your age. She is going to be laser focused on that win. Bayleigh from BB20 is back. She lives the life of her dreams as a model, a wife, and a dog mom. The first time she was on BB was a roller coaster. She fell in love with Swaggy which was a detriment of her game. This time around a showmance isn’t optional and her game will be 100% focused. She is going to run this Big Brother house. Nicole Anthony from BB21 finished third. She’s now a podcast co-host and she covers reality television. She feels like she found her niche. She’s changed tremendously and that transformation happened during her BB journey. She’s extremely proud she came in third but she wants to do better. She’s trusting her gut this year. Kesha from BB10 is back. She has three dogs and they are her children. She was America’s favorite her season and everyone remembers her birthday. Looking back on that night and moment it was awkward. If she could change anything, it would be that she was too trusting. She wants to come on stronger and make more moves and not be so trusting. She thinks people might perceive her as a weak player. Julie asks Nicole how it feels to be back and she says it’s incredible. Julie says Janelle has spent 177 days in the BB house, what keeps her coming back? She says she has such a love for this game, she just can’t say no. They already heard the rules for the first comp and Julie sends them in. They head out to see the question which asks which room is the spray paint art. The girls are struggling and Julie says slow and steady wins the race. Bayleigh is moving very slowly. Janelle is making progress. Nicole drops and has to restart. Keesha has also dropped. Bayleigh and Janelle are both close to the answer. Janelle gets to the end and the ball falls off the edge. Bayleigh gets close and she also drops. Nicole is now making progress and close to the answer. Nicole gets it in the hole and locks in and she is first to finish. They have one minute left and one more spot. Janelle is close again and it slides off. Keesha is struggling. 30 seconds left and Nicole tells them good job and they all look beautiful. Bayleigh is getting close again. Keesha drops. Time is up! Only Nicole will advance to the HOH competition. It is now Christmas, Ian, Kevin, and Nicole in the HOH! 12 HG are in and 4 more to go. Kaysar from BB6 and BB All-Stars. He’s been married for 6 years and he has a son now. He was a fan favorite the last time around. He made big moves and played extremely strategically. No one sees him coming. He’s never made it to the jury house. This time his goal is to make it all the way. Cody is from BB16 and he was the runner-up. He was single the first time, but he has a girlfriend now and he’s going to have to dial back the flirtiness. His legacy is being one half of the Hitmen alliance and he also is known for not taking someone he could have beat. He was a good player and he has to prove he wasn’t carried to the final two. There’s no doubt he’s going to win. Memphis is from BB10 and he was the runner-up. He says he was the losing half of the Renegade squad. He’s opened restaurants and he has a son River. He and Dan created an alliance like no other and all the other alliances didn’t have anything on him and Dan. He says looking back he realizes he was playing checkers and Dan was playing chess. David is from BB21. David says while everyone else is losing their mind, he’s going to be zen. He’s going to build alliances with everyone and he can tell when people are lying. He got taken out night one on a twist on BB21. He was the first evicted but never voted out. He’s back to win this time. Julie has a question for Cody and Memphis and they ask who the better duo was. Memphis says The Renegades and Cody says The Hitmen. They all have the rules to the competition and Julie sends them. They run to the backyard and their question is In which room is the robot. David is out and working on the puzzle. Memphis has seen it in the comics bedroom. Cody is now out with David and Memphis and Kaysar is the last to join them. It’s very quiet. David locks in and he is incorrect. Memphis is close and he drops and locks in and he is correct. They are all quietly working on the puzzle. Cody drops his ball and he’s correct! Christmas, Ian, Kevin, Nicole A., Memphis, and Cody will be competing in the HOH. Julie greets Cody, Memphis, David, and Kaysar and it’s time to reveal who the other HG are. They bring in Janelle, Nicole, Bayleigh, and Keesha. Memphis and Keesha hug, Janelle and Kaysar, and Nicole and David hug. Julie tells them to take a seat. The next group comes down and it’s Ian, Enzo, Tyler, and Kevin. Ian looks terrified. Tyler and Bayleigh hug. Julie encourages them all to take a seat. The final group is coming down Da, Dani, Nicole, and Christmas. Julie tells them to listen and sit down. Julie says she knows they know each other or at least of each other. Keesha is so excited and the house is beautiful. Julie says a lot has changed for many of them. She asks who has gotten married since they first played and seven raise their hands. Enzo says he got divorced. She asks who now has children and six raise their hands. Julie asks Nicole F, third time in the house. What’s tougher, planning a wedding or being in the Big Brother house? She says planning a wedding but Victor is in control now and she’s a bit worried. Julie says Bayleigh is just now seeing her competition and she says if she can deal with Swaggy she can deal with these people. Kevin says his mind is a mess and that’s all he can think. Julie thanks them. Julie talks about the HOH being the most powerful in the house but everyone needs to head to the backyard right now and they’ll get started shortly. Which all-star will be crowned the first HOH of the summer? We’’ll find out next. It’s time for the first HOH! The competition is called Star Steppin’. They will each race across the star studded field and lock in their time. The HG to cross the field in the fastest time will be the first HOH. They only have three minutes to lock-in their time they will be eliminated and if they are eliminated they will have to pick an envelope. Some stars are solid and others are not, so it’s a memory game. Memphis is first and everyone else has to go behind a wall so they can’t see the path. Memphis starts and he falls on the third step. He goes a touch slower and use his foot to see if stars are solid. He finds another bad one and has to start again. Memphis almost makes it but falls towards the end and has to start again. HE’s at 50 seconds as he makes his way across for the third time. He jumps and finishes 1:12.22. Cody is up next. Cody finishes in 22.06 seconds. Memphis has to grab an envelope. Christmas is next. She doesn’t beat Cody’s time and she gets an envelope after Memphis. Cody is in the lead for now. Cody is currently in the lead. Kevin is up next. Kevin is ready to go and he falls on the third star. He doesn’t beat Cody’s time and he has to grab an envelope. Nicole is up next. Nicole falls on the third star and she starts again. She tries to balance on the star she falls on but falls again and she is out. She grabs an envelope. Ian is the last to go. It will be either Cody or Ian. Ian does well but falls towards the end. He starts again and forgets the path and falls on the third star. He doesn’t beat Cody’s time and Cody is the first HOH! Cody is in the DR and Julie tells him no one can hear them. She asks who was he most surprised to see? He says probably Kaysar because they went way back to get him. She asks if he was scared or glad he saw anyone? Cody says seeing people he’s never had conversations with made him nervous and he had to win HOH. Julie says so you wanted to win tonight? Cody says yes, he doesn’t trust anyone and he wants convos to come to him. Julie asks if he’s nervous about being the first HOH. Cody says you get blood on your hands but it’s also easy to pawn it off as it’s what the house wants. Julie says Cody and Derrick were in perfect sync, what will it be like to play without him? Cody says he was the best player to play the game. He didn’t play with emotions and he trusted Derrick. He says it will be a completely different game. The five all-stars who lost the HOH comp. Inside each envelope is either a cash prize or a punishment. The four envelopes that don’t contain cash contain a have-not card. Ian opens his envelope first and he is a have-not. Christmas opens hers and she won $5,000. Nicole, Kevin, and Memphis are all have-nots. Memphis, Kevin, Nicole A., and Ian hold the honor to be the first have-nots and they can head upstairs to see their new room. They are informed they have to crawl into their room. They are having trouble opening the room because it’s still locked. They are having technical difficulties. We finally get a look at the have-not room and it looks like a coal room or sewer. The safety suite is new this year and inside is something every HG will want. Sunday we’ll see who Cody nominates. Wednesday we’ll see the first POV of the summer. Thursday will be the first live eviction, but there will be a way for them to avoid that. Julie goes to the HG and says it wouldn’t be premiere night without a surprise. Julie tells them this summer new rooms will be revealed and each room will twist up the game like never before. The first room will be the Safety Suite. They each will be given a VIP pass to the room. How does it work? They’ll all find out soon enough. Good night! Nobody wants to be the first one evicted. The safety suite can keep not one, but two safe the first week. Because of the PGA championship, Sunday’s show may be delayed.
  5. Tonight, Usher is joining Songland to find a new song. He typically looks for something versatile and it has to take people on a journey. Ryan asks what he might be looking for and Usher says you have to leave space to make magic happen. He wants something that comes from three different perspectives to create something people can grow from and feel something from. Our first writer is Miranda Glory from New York, NY. Her song is called Salty and it’s about the freedom you get when you get over someone. She introduces herself and performs it for the producers and Usher. Ester says this is a girls song and it’s for a guy and girls speak differently than a guy would. Usher agrees and doesn’t think he would say that. Ryan says he would write a completely new hook. Ester tries a different beat and Usher wants to come over too. They freestyle a bit and he changes a line and he says it switches the direction of the song. The next writer in is Ryan Cam from Leesburg, VA. His song is called Staying Over and it’s about a relationship he had but she was moving and he was long distance. He steps in and introduces himself and he performs his song. Ester wants to know where the hook is and Ryan says the chorus didn’t seem like the chorus. Ester wants to know how to make the song more rap for Usher. Ryan says you need Swag for Usher. Next we have David Wade and he’s from Newark, NJ. His song is called Horse ‘N Carriage and it’s a love song. He introduces himself to the producers and performs his original song for Usher. Shane says this song could be bigger than R&B and it needs to be a little more universal. Ester wants to take some of the production away and hear it stripped down and simple. The final writer to pitch their original song is Fatherdude and he’s from Long Island, Ny. His song is called Billions and it’s about the improbability of finding the right relationship. Shane says that was awesome and Ester liked the D’Angelo falsetto and she wants to hear it again. Usher says it felt like a pop record and then went to a R&B style. Usher says he’s all about new ideas and concepts and collaboration. Miranda is brought in first and he thinks what has been shared with her will help and she will be moving on to work with a producer, along with Ryan and David. Fatherdude is not moving on because Usher said the song doesn’t fit with him right now, but he will move up. Miranda is working with Ryan. Ryan says her melodies were fire, but Salty isn’t going to work for Usher. They just need to re-approach the lyrics. David is working with Shane and Shane says the song is so sexy and they are talking with Usher. Usher says it can be a global song. Shane says they are going to edit and take the best parts and he wants to give him something to sing. Usher talks with Ester and Ryan and they are working on lyrics and story structure and the production to make it more R&B. Ryan with Miranda says they are doing surgery on the track. Usher meets with Miranda and Ryan and he tells them he wishes they started the record simple and sparse and then let it crescendo. Shane and David are talking about the lyrics and the chorus. Shane says they need a few things a listener can repeat and dance to. David says the song was originally more urban, but Usher wanted something to feel more international and Shane made it a crossover record. Ryan worked out some lyrics for Ester and she thinks they have a better flow. Ester changed the production to make it feel more like Usher. David is back in first to re-pitch the original song he and Shane worked on. They have changed the name of the song to Personal. Usher says he feel all of the improvements and the changes that made it significant to who he is was dope. Miranda is in next to re-pitch the song her and Ryan worked on. Ryan is going to join Miranda on stage and they have changed the name of the song to No Cap (Missing You). Usher says he’s really happy and that doesn’t happen often to be happy hearing a sad song. Ryan is in last to re-pitch the song he and Ester worked on. They changed the name of the song to California. Usher says the song feels relevant and super cool and it could be on the radio right now. Usher says this is what music making and creativity is about. He gets to pick one song to record and the song he is going to pick is…California. Usher says he’s looking forward to it.
  6. Tonight, Ben Platt joins Songland. Ryan says he’s a triple threat because he sings, dances, and acts. The first time Shane seen him was in Pitch Perfect with Ester. Ester says he’s looking to put out a pop leaning album. He’s an Oscar away from an EGOT and he’s 26. Ben says he’s such a big fan of the show. Ben is looking for stuff that feels specific to him and he wants to go a little more into the pop lane. The first writer in is David Davis from Wheaton, IL. His song is called Everything it Took to Get to You. Ben says the lyrics resonated him with him. Ryan says some of the lyrics are incredible. Ryan says he veered off from the melody, but there wasn’t a good reason to do that. Ryan sings it and adjusts it and Ester says it’s simple, but it keeps the melody intact. Ben says the first two lines of the chorus are out of this world. Shane says he doesn’t even need a chorus. Ben suggests changing it to Everything I Did to Get to You and they can list those things. The next writer in is Kylie Rothfield from Danville, CA and her song is called Lonely. Ben wouldn’t like it to be a little vibier. Ryan says you could get through the chorus without a lot of production. Shane asks Kylie if they need all the questions as the lyrics? Ryan suggests a lyric change to flip it. Shane thinks the second stanza could be about New York City, with the first verse being set in Los Angeles. Next in is Caroline Kole from Clearwater, FL and her song is called Fool’s Gold. Shane was so impressed with her phrasing. Ryan says the ultimate goal is to lead up to the payoff because Fool’s Gold comes out of nowhere. Shane wants to know who she’s talking to in the song because it feels like a relationship song. Ryan says what if the Fool’s Gold is the relationship. Shane says it could just all lead to a bigger setup. Ryan thinks the song goes to Broadway so he wants to change some of the melody and bring it down a bit. The final writer in is Anna Hamilton from Bucyrus, KS and her song is called Deathbed. Ben loves the sentiment of wanting to leave behind good. Ryan says it’s an incredible concept, but you can’t land on death bed. Shane suggests when I draw my last breath, I hope there’s only love left. Ben says he’s impressed by all four song writers. He brings in David and he’s going to work with a producer, along with Kylie and Caroline. Anna is brought in and Ben says he doesn’t think this is going to be the song for him because he’s looking for something different. Kylie is working with Ester on Lonely. Ben is hoping for some classic R&B and fine tuning the lyrics. Kylie and Ester start working on the lyrics. Shane is working with Caroline on Fool’s Gold and Ben can’t wait to hear them include the rainbow in the song. Shane says the melodies are stunning, but lyrically they need to get it worked out. He wants to make sure the lyrics support the melody. Ryan is working with David and Ben wants to hear the lyric changes while maintaining the soulful melody. Ryan wants to use the lyric Everything I Did to Get to You because it makes it more specific. David says it feels like the purpose of the song is a lot clearer. Ryan wants to use a choir. Ester wants to figure out how Kylie can break out into a chorus. Shane says when you have a melody that’s so intact, you don’t want to mess with it. Caroline says the new theme of the lyrics are from a relationship stand point. She wants to build a space for Ben to do some runs. David is at the piano and singing for Ryan. Ryan is working on the tempo and the syncopation. Kylie is in to re-pitch the song she and Ester worked on and they have changed the title from Lonely to Ghosts. Shane says Kylie’s tone is out of this world. Ben says the song feels so much more introspective and heartbreaking and haunting. He thinks it’s so gorgeous. He says she’s really special. David is in next to re-pitch the song he and Ryan worked on. Ben says he loves all the lyric changes the most. He loved the production of the gospel feeling, but the story is so clear to him. He says the chorus lands in such a different way and it’s amazing. Caroline is in last to re-pitch the song she and Shane worked on. Ben says with the new lyrics, the beginning went to one specific relationship. He says she hit the bullseye. It was beautiful. Ryan says some of the lyrics were a masterclass. Ben says he’s only been a song writer for the last couple of years and he’s very new. He says they are all so gifted and he’d be honored to sing any of the songs. He sang each of them and the song that’s going to work for him right now is…Everything It Took to Get to You. Ben says it’s amazing and he feels so lucky. Ben says Ryan brought it to the finish line.
  7. Tonight, Bebe Rexha joins Songland and she’s looking for a song for the Tokyo Olympic games. (This episode was recorded before the COVID-19 pandemic) Bebe says a song that would be perfect would be high energy and make you feel like you do anything. Bebe says the Olympics is massive. The first writer in is Greg Scott from Chico, CA. His song is called Miracle and it’s about working hard and perseverance and never giving up. Bebe says the chorus is an A+. Shane says one of the problems with the song is the verse didn’t feel current. Bebe says the melody is everything and she’d scratch that and start fresh. Bebe and Ryan freestyle and sing some ideas. Next in is Alyssa Newton from Las Cruces, NM and her song is called Made for Something. Bebe loves the sentiment of the song, but if she were in the Olympics right now, what would you want to listen to. She would want more and hyped up. Shane pitches something about being Made for This and Bebe likes that. Ester says she felt like the music made it sound too happy and sweet. Next in is Anna Graceman and she’s from Juneau, AK and her song is called Gold. Bebe says the hook didn’t knock her in the face. Shane says it feels like it could get bigger for what they’re talking about. Ryan says she has to arrive at gold differently. Ester says they definitely need to work on lyrics because there is not a rise and they need to bring some energy to it. She wants to hear the song a little grimier and Ryan adds a beat by pounding on his keyboard. Bebe says the song has a lot of potential. The last writer in is Josh Vida from Covina, CA and his song is called Crazy Enough. Bebe says the song is actually really dope. Ryan likes the melody. Shane says he doesn’t think the lines sound anthemic, but it’s universal. Bebe thinks the tempo needs to be a bit quicker. Bebe says she’s always about the feel of the song and as long as the melody is good, you can work everything else around it. Bebe brings Greg in first and he is going to move on and work with a producer, along with Anna and Josh. Alyssa is brought in and Bebe says that her saying the song doesn’t feel right for her doesn’t mean it’s not right for someone else. She’s an incredible songwriter and she should keep going. Shane is working with Anna and he wants to make the song grittier. Shane thinks the hook should be bones and she can switch it to where it’s in a positive light. Anna says they definitely need to nail the hook and she wants Bebe to connect with it. Shane says they’re using the same chord progression but adding percussion over it to give it a new life. Josh is working with Ester and she wants to give him what the song needs. She says this song doesn’t match the Olympics and she wants to pump up the song. She wants to take out all the negative lyrics. Greg is working with Ryan and he tells Greg that his chorus resonated with Bebe. Ryan heard the guitar riff carrying the verse. Greg says the changes right off the bat is adding simpler melodies so the chorus shines. Shane and Anna are working on a few lyric changes. Shane says they need to carve away at the lyrics so they are each there to tell a story. Shane says to be on the spot and come up with a melody is great. Josh says the story of the song has changed completely. He’s hoping the production will tie everything together. Ester says they need to make a vibe for Bebe. Ryan says he knows Bebe well and she’s going to care about the track making her feel cool and raw and emotive. He’s changing the production on the track completely. He thinks this song works perfectly for the Tokyo games. Anna is in first to re-pitch the song she and Shane worked on. They have changed the title of the song from Gold to Bones. Ryan says that melody is great and Bebe says it’s incredible. Bebe says that beat made her feel like she could go faster and believe in herself. Bebe says Ryan is getting nervous and Ryan says he should have got a choir. Josh is in next to re-pitch the song he and Ester worked on. They changed the title from Crazy Enough to Sideline. Ester has brought in Coco to perform the song and Josh sings back-up vocals. Bebe says that sounded current and fresh. Bebe says that sounded incredible. Greg is in to re-pitch the song he worked on with Ryan and Ryan has brought out a contestant from Season 1, Sam DeRosa, to perform Miracle. Bebe says that chorus is ridiculous, and she loved the instrumental drop. Bebe has a thought that she calls a mind twister. She asks the beat from Miracle and asks for the lyrics from Shane’s song. Bebe wants to potentially mix the lyrics of Anna and Shane’s song to lead to the chorus of Greg and Ryan’s song Miracle. Bebe brings the writers back in and thanks them for sharing their talent. She says no one saw this coming, this has never happened on the show before. She has decided there will be two winners tonight. She says it kind of hit her listening to the songs that the lyrics would work with the hook of the other song. The two songs she’s going to combine is Bones and Miracle. Bebe says it was too hard to pick between them and she absolutely loved the verse on Bones and she couldn’t give up on the hook of Miracle because it’s catchy and powerful.
  8. Tonight, Boyz II Men joins Songland and Ryan, Ester, and Shane reminisce on their experiences with Boyz II Men. Nathan Morris, Wanya Morris, and Shawn Stockman came to Songland to find a song that’s memorable. They want to find something more contemporary and modern day. They are at a point in their careers where they want to help the next generation along. Our first writer is Zak Waters from Los Angeles, CA. His song is called Bad Things and he thinks the song will match melodically and harmonically for Boyz II Men. He introduces himself and performs for them. Shawn says they should space out the verses. Wanya prefers simple wording. Ryan suggests him not to get so neo-soul funk. Our next writers in are Juan and Lisa Winans from Washington D.C. Their song is called Maybe. They step in and introduce themselves and Lisa performs their song. Shane wants to talk about what the song means to them and he thinks there is a message in it that means something different to them. Ester wants to know why Lisa sang that song instead of Juan and he says because of the key they have it in. Ester asks him to sing it and he does. Wanya says that changed the dynamic. Nathan liked the top of the song and Shawn says Babyface is a master at creating a story and setting you up for a chorus, but he gives a clear understanding what the song is about. Shane and Ryan freestyle a bit and change a bit of the wording. Nathan says music is the tie that bonds. The next writer in is Charles Infamous from Lancaster, PA. His song is called Jukebox. He introduces himself and performs his original song. Shane says the melody in the verse would stick with him all day. Wanya says that could be the verse and there could be a bigger melody for the hook. Ryan freestyles a little and Shawn asks for a different tempo. Ester says maybe the song shouldn’t be Jukebox, but maybe 20/20. Nathan says the melody is groovy. The last writer in to pitch their song is Chrislee from Essex Fells, NJ and his song is called Love Struck. Wanya says they should change the pre-chorus to a lighter melody. Shane says there are some things convoluted in the lyric. Ryan would like to simplify the chorus. Wanya says they heard four incredible songs and it’s going to be tough. Shawn says they felt like they were amongst their people. Zak comes in and he’s going to the studio to work with a producer, along with Chrislee and Juan and Lisa. Charles is brought in and Nathan says they like the song, but he doesn’t think there is enough time to get it to where it needs to be for them. Chrislee is working with Ester and Wanya says he thought this song was the closest to complete and the second verse needs to explain what it was about her that made him feel like he had to have her. Ester says they need to refine some of the lyrics. Juan and Lisa are working with Shane. Shane says they have to make sure the story is clear in the song. Shane says Juan and Lisa are open and ready to tell their story. Zak is working with Ryan and Ryan says this is a tricky one. His fear for the song is that it will be too on the nose. He wants to change the song to pop, but not make it cheesy. Ryan says Boyz II Men have been around 30 years and they need something new, not something that sounds like things they’ve done before. Shawn says the hook needs to feel real because that’s how they’ll get people to relate to it. Ester and Chrislee are working and she says the second hook gets more harmonies and third hook goes up. Chrislee says working with Ester is amazing and they working on background vocals to make the track a Boyz II Men record. Ryan adds some drums to Zak and they tried to make it feel more modern. Zak says it sounds more like a radio song now. Zak likes the way that it bounces. Ryan says they’ll be surprised because it’s so different, but now it depends on if they like it. Shane thinks Juan and Lisa should sing together. Shane says the song had a bit of a dated feel, but it’s more relatable now. Chrislee is the first one back in to re-pitch the song he and Ester worked on. Nathan says he liked the harmony and they left space in there. Shawn says that sounded good. Juan and Lisa are in to re-pitch the song they and Shane worked on. They have renamed the song What If It’s Love. Wanya loves how they dived into the lyrical change and it hit and felt relatable. Shawn says they left room to add themselves into the song. Zak is in to re-pitch the song he and Ryan worked on. Zak says the song has changed a lot and it’s very current. Nathan says you can feel how it’s grown. Shawn says it’s a vibe and since the beat was so punchy, the lyrics had to be just as punchy. Wanya says they all have a future and they are great at what they do. He says all the songs were extremely great and they all took a major turn and became what they never expected. Shawn thanks them for that because he knows songs are like babies and he thanks them for trusting in them. Wanya says they can only choose one. He says this is the part that sucks. The song they picked to record…is Love Struck by Chrislee. Nathan says you know those informercials where they say wait, there’s more! But wait, there IS more. They love all the songs and so they are going to record them all. Nathan says if you know anything about the business is good songs are hard to come by and they all just worked for them. Wanya says it was an opportunity to have three songs by three of the best writers in the game and Shawn says and they can be greedy.

  13. Day 38 at Noru and Natalie is so excited and proud of herself for continuing to try and giving herself the best shot. Sarah and Tony are talking and they are pretty sure they are going to have to make fire against each other. Michele is practicing making ire and Tony is helping Sarah. Michele gets her fire going. Sarah gets a fire and Tony is working on his. Michele is trying to figure out how to make hers go higher. Natalie says Tony is the biggest threat in the game and getting him out would be ideal. That leaves Sarah and Michele. If Sarah wins, it gives Sarah a strong argument at the end. If Michele goes against Tony, but it take an argument away from Sarah. Michele would love to go to fire and win because it would be a great endcap, but it’s a risky way to play the game. Tony says he was watching Michele and he’s concerned about how quickly she’s getting it. Tony goes back and tells Sarah that Michele is doing good. Tony says he needs to get good at this. Sarah and Tony are grinding all afternoon. Sarah hopes Natalie picks her. She’s not scared she wants to step up to the plate and Tony is not in the right headspace to make fire. He might get there, but she thinks she can beat him. Tony says he’s going to work hard and keep trying. He’s either going to win this game or lose trying. Natalie says she’s sitting in the front seat after being in the backseat the entire time. She’d rather be in this position than someone else determining her fate in the game. Tribal Council: The jury is brought in. Sophie isn’t with the jury and she’s not feeling well and the jury will fill her in. Jeff goes to Natalie about being voted out day 2 to guaranteeing herself a final three spot. She says it felt like a dream, but the only thing kept her going at extinction was getting the shot to battle back and winning immunity was amazing. Hard work pays off. Michele says Natalie wanted time alone to think about her decision and she spent every moment practicing fire. Tony says he came in giving it his best and he hopes his best is good enough to win in the end and he doesn’t care who he goes up against. Sarah would want to go against Tony and she wouldn’t want to go against anyone else. She says she loves him and he’s her partner and if they’re going to get shot she’d rather shoot at each other than be shot by someone else. Michele says if she is going to make fire she’d want to make it against Tony because he’s the biggest threat in the game. Natalie says she’d love to battle Tony and send him home and he says what’s stopping you? Natalie says she has to decide if she’s confident enough and she knew when he placed immunity around her neck that she had done enough to leave the fire making to someone else. Natalie has decided Michele would sit F3 with her and Sarah and Tony will make fire. She wants to break up that alliance and she hopes Sarah wins and sits F3. She says her and Michele have worked hard to get there. Tony says surprise, surprise, and Sarah starts coughing when Natalie says that she and Michele worked hard. Tony and Sarah take their spots and we go to commercial. Sarah and Tony say they are ready and Jeff says this could be a two million dollar fire. Sarah says he will finally have to say she’s better than him and that will be hard and says it’s fine and they fist bump. Sarah is building a nest and Tony is using flint with some husk. Sarah is now working with the flint and she has a tiny flame, but it goes right out. Tony finally gets a little flame and he reaches for some sticks and starts blowing on it. He’s trying to keep his fire alive. Sarah has something and she gets it going and she starts putting sticks on there. They both are about even and they are working on building it. Tony is adding a lot of sticks. Sarah is using some sticks and some husk. Sarah has a slight lead. Sarah is using a lot of her husk and it’s going higher and Tony’s is diminishing down. Tony has used a lot of sticks and now his fire is a little higher and Sarah’s fire is diminishing. Sarah is working to catch up. Tony’s is strong and starting to burn through the rope. Sarah’s is finally high enough. Both ropes are on fire but Tony’s higher and Tony’s rope is burned and Tony has won! Tony is emotional and Sarah is comforting him. He apologizes and she says you have nothing to be sorry for. Jeff asks Sarah how that feels right now and she says it’s ok. When you hear people say that it doesn’t mean they are giving up, it means they got something valuable out of this experience. If that’s how she left the game, she wanted it to be that way, and Tony is who she’d want to take her out. She wishes she could be F3 with Tony, but it’s ok and he can still finish what he set out to accomplish. She knows he will do it and she’s fine. Sarah takes her torch to Jeff. Jeff says Lacina, the tribe has spoken. Sarah says to eat some food tomorrow and she’ll be eating some tonight. Jeff says they made it to the F3 and tomorrow night they will face the jury and they will have a lot of questions. One of the three of them will show up and seize the title of sole Survivor. One last night in Fiji. Sarah says Tony is her partner and this is the way she would have wanted this to end. She doesn’t have any regrets and she wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. She’s grateful for the friendships she’s made and all the opportunities Survivor gave her. It’s Day 40 at Tony has a congratulations for making it to F3 and they are told to go for their well-earned Survivor breakfast. Michele says her previous season she did the ultimate thing and won Survivor, but fans and former Survivor contestants said she wasn’t a deserving a winner. She says it took her greatest accomplishment and took away from it and tonight she’s going to close this chapter and do her darndest to win. Natalie says she had a very different path to the F3, but she wanted to play Extinction the best she could and she was relentless with her effort to get back into the game. She has to prove to the jury that she duked it out with the best of the best and came out on top and prove she deserves the money. Tony says this is a chance to prove he’s one of the greatest players to play the game. He says some people are good at challenges, or social, or strategy, but he’s good at all. These are all winners and he had a big part of taking away some of the juror members chance to win and this is going to be a hard task to convince them he deserves to win. They’ve never had a King of Survivor, he hopes he can be that. Night 39 Tribal Council-Jeff says it’s only fitting that the final tribal council and winners at war would take place under a torrential downpour. Jeff says they’ve had to deal with the contest for two million dollars, fire tokens, a new Survivor currency, and EoE. Now it’s time to discuss their games. Outwit part of the game: Yul starts and wants to offer the huge kudos and playing a great game and getting to the end and they all took different paths and they need them to fill in the missing blanks so they have a complete narrative. Denise is curious to know what they identify as misteps or missed opportunities to play the game. Natalie says her was day one and she relied too much on her strength and not reaching out and talking to more people. Michele had a lot of great one on one alliance and she found people to help keep her safe, but she never had anything bigger. She had some pre-existing relationships that put a target on her back, but this game didn’t go as expected and play out. Tony says he wasn’t as open and vulnerable to people and he did that this season and that determined which way he was going to play the game. Nick says is that how you tried to get us not to vote for you. Tony says he wanted to go to the end with Nick, but Nick didn’t want to play with him. Jeremy asked what about him and Tony says they just didn’t have much in common. Natalie doesn’t think that’s true and Tony says their bond was real, but he was scared of Jeremy. Ben attests to Tony’s loyalty and Jeremy says they can’t because he voted them out. Adam says Natalie’s job on EoE was to get advantages to get back in the game and set herself up to win. He says she killed EoE, but how did she get herself to F3. Natalie says it was her job to paint the picture of extinction and what was going on. Rob wants to know why Natalie isolated himself, Amber, Wendel, and Ethan. Natalie says she was focused on doing something secret and she was nervous and she needed to breathe and separate and she knows she’s a strong personality and some people don’t like that. Parvati likes Natalie and her approach. She wants to hear from Tony and how he blindsided them and none of them feel burned by him. Rob wants to know how he did. Tony says the first season he built a spy shack, then a spy bunker, this time he had a spy nest. He says he almost fell out of the nest, but it’s how he knew things. Wendel says he made it to the end without seeing votes against him and Natalie played a great edge game. What about Michele. Michele says she reintegrated and kept a smile on her face. She found cracks and she played an adaptable and flexible game. Tony had a great alliance helping him, and it was just her alone, especially at the end. Ben says as a fellow controversial winner and he realizes why she won her season and she should be proud of what she’s done. Outplay-Wendel wants to know everything Natalie found or won or sent into the game. Natalie says her social game might be weak, but this was her strengths. She sold an idol to Sandra, the right to leave a tribal to Jeremy, an extra vote for Sarah, extortion of Tony, the disadvantage for Nick, and the log and coconut challenge were the hardest things she had to do for just one fire token. It was cool to be watching the advantages and disadvantages. She got to play Survivor with these things from the edge. Ben says winning immunity challenges are important. Tony won 4, one short of tying the record and Michele won two. Tony gave it his all and that’s what led him to keep winning. Michele says winning those immunity challenges at clutch times and it gives you a day and sometimes that could change everything. Things changed majorly in her game because of her immunity wins. Rob says Natalie could have taken out Tony and had the opportunity. Why didn’t she face him? Natalie says when she won immunity she felt complete and she wanted to see the alliance of four turn to three and then see them finish off. She says she was able to completely pull apart that alliance. Ethan asks Tony and Michele about how they feel about the edge. Tony says the only thing that came from the edge for him was extortion and that disadvantage. Michele viewed the edge as an advantage because it could give her an opportunity to go back into the game, or friends who were there could come from the edge could send her things or come back and help her game. She says Natalie coming back in was a huge opportunity for her game. Outlast-Natalie says her journey was a hand she didn’t know she would be dealt and she adopted and moved on. When she came back into the game, her focus was to break the alliance and to make it to the end after being voted out first. She says she had the biggest target on her back after Chris won EoE and she’s really proud of her game and she’s excited to be here. Michele says her first season was a lot different. She only went to six tribal councils. This season she went to 15 of the 19 and she was vulnerable in most of them. She worked hard to get to the end and she thinks she played with integrity and made great relationships and she won fire tokens and advantages. She played the best game she could with her skills. Tony says he came as a human being this time. From day one to day 38, he played Survivor twice. During the day, and during the night. He looked for idols all night and it took him 26 days to find an idol. He was leading votes without people knowing he was leading them. He says Natalie came back in and told everyone that EoE thought he was the biggest threat and he had to deal with that. Dani says all three of them have been incredible. Amber says they have respect for each and every journey. Adam says they should each be proud. Rob says all three fought and it made their decision difficult. They may have thought they had a winner picked, but they each showed why they deserved to be up there. They give a standing ovation and Amber says they deserve this. Jeff says they played this game at a relentless pace. There’s only one thing to do and that is declare a victor of this war. We’ll give the jury a minute and then they will vote. Time to vote. We see Rob say that Natalie was right he said she needed to play a perfect game. She almost did. She needed to take Tony out and he voted for Tony. Parvati says she wrote this name down twice, once to vote her out and now once to win. We hear Nick says he knows how hard it is to be on the outs the whole time. We see Ben immediately vote for Tony. Jeff will go get the votes! Natalie says done. It’s done. Jeff says he’ll see them back in LA for the reading of the votes. Jeff has the votes and the final three are being streamed in. He congratulates them and apologizes for not being together. He hopes that regardless of the vote, they outlasted 17 winners. Jeff tells them to bring their families in. Michele has her sister, Natalie’s boyfriend, and Tony’s children. Jeff says two of them are going to lose. One is going to earn two million dollars and become the second two timer winner. Jeff is going to read the votes from his garage for the first time ever! First vote, Tony. Natalie. Natalie. Tony. Nat. Tony. Tied 3-3. Natalie. Tony. Tied 4-4. Tony. Tony. 6-4. Tony. Tony. 8 votes for Tony and 4 for Natalie. The winner of Survivor Winners at War Tony! Ethan, Parvati, Tyson, and Jeremy voted for Natalie and Tony got every other vote. Tony says this is life changing, especially with what’s going on in the world. He’s going to make sure he secures everything for his family. Jeff says he was a great winner and representative of the show!
  14. Last week, we unmasked an out of this world superstar. Tonight, it’s the quarterfinals, and the remaining singers need to deliver. And with so much as stake, we’ve invited comedian Jeff Dye to offer some insight. We’re two weeks away from finding out who will win the Golden Mask trophy! Frog is up first! We see him voice messaging his little frog, and we see three French breads while he talks about how his life changed for his tadpole. We see a footloose theme in the package. Frog takes the stage and performs Bust-A-Move by Young MC. Jenny says this is the quarterfinals and he brought his A game. Every week he doesn’t disappoint and Ken says he keeps this show going. Frog says he’s here to win the golden mask for his kid. Their clues are “stolen packages” from things the artists ordered. Frog’s clue is a model airplane. He challenges them to figure out what the plane is about. The judges think it’s a private jet. Jeff thinks the singer is a man. Jenny says she’s been all over the place with Lil Romeo, O’Shea Jackson, Jr. But today, she thought of Anthony Mackie. He rapped in 8 Mile, but there was a hawk clue and he was Falcon in The Avengers and Captain America. Robin says that’s not bad, but he’s been back and forth between Omarion and Bow Wow, and there was recently a jet situation with Bow Wow. Ken says it can’t be Bow Wow. Ken says from the clue package, there’s a lot of Footloose clues and he first thought Kevin Bacon. Maybe they do six degrees. Julianne Hough was in the remake of Footloose and Derek Hough is her brother, and he’s a great dancer. Jenny says Derek has no children. Jeff Dye says he was dancing in front of Hot Buns, and the Seattle Seahawks, and he thinks maybe Sir Mix-a-Lot. Kitty is next. She says she’s got to do the whole kit ‘n kaboodle. Her creativity comes from all across the globe and we see her in a hot air balloon. We see the Kremlin, and cherry blossoms from Japan, plus the Vatican City. She says while her career may be up in the air, but she’s Over the Rainbow. She takes the stage and performs Back to Black by Amy Winehouse. Kitty’s clue package is a bow and arrow. Robin says Jennifer Lawrence. Kitty says aim your sites and it should help you target who I am. Jenny says she saw a lot of Wizard of Oz clues, and she saw the bow and arrow and she has an arrow tattoo, she says it could be Lea Michele. Jeff says he noticed New York and no one wants her to grow up and he thinks it could be an Olsen Twins. Nicole says Jenny guessed this person in the past, and now she’s feeling it. She felt like she recognized it as Vanessa Hudgens. Rhino is ready. Rhino thinks there was a big reason with his last song…he was thinking about his wife. He had some major struggles, both personal and professional. He thought he was content on his own and never thought he’d get married, let alone have youngsters and we see three baby rhinos. He says being married made him a better man and a family man. He takes the stage and sings You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling by The Righteous Brothers. Nicole says he put his heart on the line and tonight he got on his knees. Rhino says he’s winning an internal battle with self-consciousness and he’s finally feeling like he can take more risks. Rhino’s package is a captain’s hat. Jeff says it’s a Hugh Heffner hat. Rhino says he’s worn many different hats, but this one holds very special meaning. Nicole was going to guess Jason Aldean because of his vocals. Plus, he just had a baby named Navy. Jeff says he has the Navy hat, and he had an animated turkey hand, tracing a hand is like Trace Adkins. Plus, he’s a voice on King of the Hill. Ken says he’s been stuck on this navy clue for a bit and he can’t get this name out of his head. He says remember the show named JAG, and he forgot the guys name. He says David James Elliott. Night Angel is our next artist and she says the judges comments made her reflect on her career. When she was just four, we see the country of Columbia, and her aunt heard her singing and taught her about singing. She’s been known for music, and tonight she’s going to show everyone what her auntie taught her. She takes the stage and sings Last Dance by Donna Summer. Jenny says Night Angel is going to the finals and she’d take the mask home if she was the only judge here. Night Angel says this is a full circle moment for her. Night Angel’s package is ski gear. Night Angel wanted to help them get warmer because they are very cold. Ken picked up on TLC clues, and there was a red light, he says maybe not Chili from TLC, but T-Boz. Nicole says Tiny is someone who can sing and she’s a great writer. Jeff says maybe Alicia Keys. Jenny says some clues do fit Alicia, Empire, like Empire State of Mind and Girl on Fire. The final singer of the night is Turtle. Turtle says being the Turtle makes him feel like a superhero. Underneath the shell, he’s just a regular guy and he’s been able to become stronger. We see a poster that Wanted: Reward $1999. They all have demons to battle and music can bring you through the darkest of times and bring you healing and we see poker chips. He takes the stage and performs Fix You by Coldplay. Robin says that’s such a revealing song. Turtle says he was apprehensive when he was first asked to participate and he’s so happy he showed up to do this. Nicole says that was the best performance so far of the season. Turtle’s package is a Zombie. Turtle says they may be dead wrong about who he is, but this clue should send him in the right direction. Jeff is going by the clues and he thinks it’s Norman Reedus. Ken thinks it’s a great guess. He thought it could be AJ McLean, but now he’s going with Howie D because he was in a sci-fi movie called Dead Seven with zombies. Nicole thought maybe Max George, but earlier there was a clue directed towards her and she thinks it’s Jesse McCartney. Tonight was full of standout performances. It’s time to vote for who their favorite singer was. The person going home is…Kitty! Time for final guesses. Nicole says in the beginning she was thinking Nicole Ritchie because of the fashion clues, but after the vocal performance today she’s going with Vanessa Hudgens. Also, it had a lot of Christmas clues and Vanessa is in a lot of Christmas movies. Jeff says he thinks she’s petite and she was a child star, and he thinks Mary Kate and/or Ashely Olsen. Robin says he was on the Emma Roberts trail, but then they went back and forth on Vanessa Hudgens and he feels like Ashley Tisdale has more of the teeny bop energy. Ken says he said Avril Lavigne in the past, but a lot of clues haven’t fit. He’s thinking with the Hot Air Balloon, maybe Anna Kendrick. Jenny says she’s clearly losing her mind right now. She’s been so far removed from connecting the clues to her. She saw the bow and arrow, and this girl has an arrow tattoo, and this person starred in Legend of Oz, and she thinks it’s Lea Michele. It’s time to find out who Kitty is. We take the mask off and it’s…Jackie Evancho! Nick says Jackie holds the record for youngest selling platinum artist of all time. She’s been stuck in the stereotype of a 10-year old girl. Kitty’s clue answers: The pope hat and Vatican are clues to her performance for Pope Francis on his U.S. visit. The Christmas clues signify Jackie’s best-selling albums “Someday at Christmas” and “Heavenly Christmas”. Kitty’s reference to Robert Redford is a hint at the film “The Company You Keep”, in which Jackie played the role of his daughter. Robin encourages her to continue to grow and find where she’s going and enjoy the time she has now.
  15. After incredible performances by the top 9, the finalists will be revealed tonight. For the first time, we will have five artists in the finale. Carson touches base with each of the coaches at their homes. Carson is going to reveal the top vote getter from each team and they will move on to the lives. Then the remaining artists will perform for the Instant Save and one of them will also move on to the finale. We’re starting with Team Kelly and we see Micah Iverson and Megan Danielle and their families. Team Kelly’s finalist is…Micah Iverson! We’re moving on to Team Nick and Thunderstorm Artis and Allegra Miles are streamed with their families. Team Nick’s finalist is…Thunderstorm Artis! Team John is next and we have Cammwess and Zan Fiskum th their families. Team John’s finalist is…Cammwess! We’re moving on to Team Blake and we have Joanna Serenko, Todd Tilgham, and Toneisha Harris. Team Blake’s finalist is…Todd Tilghman! Our first performer is Team Kelly’s Megan Danielle and she’s performing Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd. Kelly says her rasp is so beautiful and everything she does is remarkable to her. She thinks she is so gifted and so cool and her believability is off the charts. Allegra Miles is next and she’s performing In My Blood by Shawn Mendes. Nick says from the first moment he heard her voice he was wowed and blown away. She got better and better each step along the way. Having a chance to work with her was such an honor and that performance was knocked out of the park. Next up is Zan Fiskum and she performs Always Remember Us This Way by Lady Gaga. John says they have so much great talent on the show, but Zan has stood out to him. He says she has an angelic voice and she has the ability to master any song that she sings. That rendition of that Lady Gaga song was so amazing and heartfelt. Joanna Serenko is up and she sings Unaware by Allen Stone. Blake says Joanna has had a heck of a journey on the show, and there’s a reason for that. He says every time there was a chance for her to go home, none of the coaches were willing to let that happen, and with last week’s instant save, America wasn’t willing to let her go home. Her voice is so unique and incredible and that performance was the next level. Toneisha Harris is our final artist and she performs Lovin’ You by Minnie Ripperton. Blake says Toniesha gets in her head a lot and she really thinks a lot about what she’s going to do, and it’s natural and she has so many tools in her tool box and that was just incredible. The time has come! America has instantly saved…the first ever fifth finalist…Toneisha Harris!
