One Million Beat Shazam Round – 6 songs
First 5: $25,000 each. They only get a shot at the million if they get all 5 right. There are no more multiple choice screens and they have to know the song’s exact title before Shazam to be right.
1. Pop: “Tik Tok” (Kesha) $108,000
2. Stadium Anthems: “Mony Mony” (Billy Idol) – $133,000
3. Funk: “Tell Me Something Good” (Rufus & Chaka Khan) $158,000
4. Canadians: “I’m with You” (Avril Lavigne) $158,000
The ladies went with “Damn Cold Night” and now the million dollar prize is off the table, but they will still get to chance to double their money.
5. Boy Bands: “Step by Step” (New Kids on the Block) $183,000
Final Category: The ’70s. Melissa and Andrea had to decide if they wanted to call it a day and take $183,000 home. If they beat Shazam, they will double their money to $366,000. If Shazam beats them, they will go home with $91,500. Only one of them can play the round. Jamie said they were “musical gladiators.” Indeed they were and he told the ladies that they only missed 5 songs in the entire show so far. (Yeah, but they weren’t worth $91,500 even collectively!) Andrea was a little skittish but Melissa thought they should go for it and gave the stage to Andrea since ’70s songs were her specialty.

Andrea nailed Cat Stevens’ “Wild World” before Shazam and the cousins won $366,000. Hats off, ladies!

Now last week, when Russell didn’t try to beat Shazam but then knew the song instantly, we said he would never be able to hear that song the same way again! The same is true for Melissa and Andrea only they will remember that knowing this song was worth an extra $183 grand! Andrea thanked Melissa for having faith in her.

Andrea did fret a little over whether the actual title was “It’s a Wild World,” but Melissa assured her she got it. That is the big pitfall for the contestants on this show — picking a line or adding words from a line to the actual title.
