-Zach, Nikki, Robert and Ryan take a seat-

Robert: This week was Tenacity. On the video, the guys were bullied and had to be tenacious at the same time. All of these couldn´t do both things, they had troubles with slushies and being tenacious. First is Andi, she just hadn´t energy at the homework assingment and she kept being this way on the video shoot, she couldn´t be tancious and lip sinc.

Ryan: Bring her out.

-Andi enters the stage-

Andi: Hi! I´m Andrea Ray Green, and I´ll be singing Welcome to My Life by Simple Plan.

-Welcome to My Life

- Andi: Do you ever feel like breaking down? Do you ever feel out of place? Like somehow you just don't belong And no one understands you Do you ever want to run away? Do you lock yourself in your room? With the radio on turned up so loud That no one hears you screaming No you don't know what it's like When nothing feels alright You don't know what it's like To be like me To be hurt, to feel lost To be left out in the dark To be kicked when you're down To feel like you've been pushed around To be on the edge of breaking down And no one's there to save you No you don't know what it's like Welcome to my life

-Judges clap and smile-

Ryan: Wow, Andi!

-Andi smiles-

Ryan: I really saw a character there! You were great! So, tell me why you´re here.

Andi: This week was Tenacity, and its hard for me being tenacious, I´m more like simple, and it was hard for me in the video to be tenacious and lip sinc.

Ryan: Why?

Andi: Well, the truth is... I saw Joy and Connor kissing each other.

-Ryan smiles-

Ryan: You like Connor?

Andi: Yeah, I was actually with him! He cheated on me! He tells me it was Joy´s fault, that she kissed him, but I don´t know what to think.

Ryan: You know what? Kiss Joy´s ass!

-Everyone laughs-

Ryan: Just kick her ass. Maybe Connor´s right. Give him another chance.

Andi: I will kick Joy´s ass, and I will talk again with Connor.

Ryan: Okay, you were great! you can go.

-Andi leaves the stage-

Robert: Next is Drew. Drew is great, but he just isn´t tenacious. Drew needs more energya and he needed many takes.

-Drew enters the stage-

Drew: Hi, I´m Drew Little, and I´ll be singing One And Only by Adele.

-One and Only- Drew: You've been on my mind I grow fonder every day Lose myself in time Just thinking of your face God only knows Why it's taken me so long To let my doubts go You're the only one that I want I don't know why I'm scared I've been here before Every feeling, every word I've imagined it all You'll never know, if you never try To forgive your past, and simply be mine I dare you to let me be, your Your one and only Promise I'm worth it To hold in your arms So come on And give me a chance To prove I am the one who can Walk that mile Until the end starts

Ryan: Well, I see. You were great tonight. You can go

-Drew leaves the stage-

Robert: Next is Emma. Emma is tenacious, but she was the one that needed more takes at the shoot. She couldn´t get slushied.

-Emma enters the stage-

Emma: Hello, I´m Emma Harrington, and I´ll be singing Firework, by Katy Perry.


Emma: Do you ever feel like a plastic bag, drifting through the wind wanting to start again? Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin like a house of cards, one blow from caving in? Do you ever feel already buried deep? 6 feet under screams but no one seems to hear a thing Do you know that there's still a chance for you 'Cause there's a spark in you You just gotta ignite, the light, and let it shine Just own the night like the 4th of July 'Cause baby you're a firework Come on, show 'em what you're worth Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" As you shoot across the sky-y-y

-Judges clap-

Ryan: Emma! you sounded great! you were tenacious right now!
