This was a fun show. It was set up basically like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?
–the contestant earned the money in levels where you would drop back down if you got one of the levels incorrect and lost, you had to say
"lock in those lyrics", and there were
backups, including family and friends as
backup singers you could ask,
Two Words (where you could be given two of the four words needed to move on), and Three Lines (where you could be given a multiple choice question and choose which of the three is correct).
, I actually felt like Wayne was not encouraging the contestant to go on and on about her every thought when deciding whether to lock in her lyrics; this was very much appreciated–I hated that time filler bit of "I think it's this one [pause] but maybe it's this one [pause]" "why do you think that?" "well..." on Millionaire
. Just pick one already!
Katie was cute and I liked that Wayne was making fun of her a bit. I would be exactly that dorky, but way less confident about dancing and singing in front of everyone. Her answer about what she'd do if she won the $25,000 level (buy the best microscope and biggest ant farm the money would buy) was just so adorable.
I'm not sure if it was the contestant or the show itself, but I liked it. And while I knew all the songs, I didn't know many of the actual lyrics.
