Based on their performance, the winning couple would pick the other couple who would then make up the final four, thereby sending another couple home. Well, lo and behold, Nick/Rachel won …mostly because Rachel was coached to effectively use her husky, smokey voice rather than try and out sing the Night Ranger version and the impossibly high notes of the original.
You’ll notice I’m not using nicknames anymore because (a) after 8 episodes, I’ve finally learned their names and (b) by now, if you’re still reading my recaps, you know who they are, too.
Ya know who came off looking really bad last night? Ed. Ed claimed to be a karaoke champ and also a huge Night Ranger fan and claimed “Sister Christian” is on his running mix yet, he butchered it. Maybe …maybe he was thrown off because Hippo-Face Jaclyn missed her cue for the opening, but anybody who claims to love that song and have listened to it and sang along to it a thousand times …well, that person should be able to jump in and recover. But that’s Ed …earlier this season he said, “I’m a jock” (or maybe he called himself an athlete) and proceeded to finish dead last in the obstacle course. Now he claims to be enough of a Night Ranger fan (or a fan of the song “Sister Christian”) that he was going to be good. Instead, he was the worst and part of his routine involved him simulating on-stage sex during a song about a brother singing to his sister.
