Episode 09 (10-02-07)
Yay! New season! I love all the new things they've added! I especially liked the game from Round 2 (I think) where the contestants had to start the song. I think that's the hardest game, as well as the Round 3 game where they had to sing the entire chorus.

I love 80's music!!

Episode 07 (08-21-07)
The hour shows really confuse me when I try to list the songs and the "rounds" they belong to, but I like the hour shows. I like all the music and watching the contestants (sometimes) do horribly with a lot of the easy songs.

And...when did they start giving away cash to the audience?! I think that's a great addition to the show!

That's all the songs from today. I'm unsure if the show is going to be on tomorrow. My TV Guide has the normal listing, but this week wasn't a "normal" week, as today was a one hour special, and I believe tomorrow America's Got Talent is on for an hour.

Also, while checking out The Singing Bee Forum, I came across a post about another website that was told to be good. The Singing Bee Buzz. Check it out when you get the chance. It's still in the developing stages, but it looks like it's going to be something great with the help of the FANS!!

I don't know how I forgot to do this earlier in the week. But it dawned on me this morning as I was listening to You Are So Beautiful by Joe Cocker that I probably hadn't done it...and sure enough, I log in and it's not done. I'm so sorry. I must have slept through Tuesday or something and that's not like me at all. I'll have to watch or tape the re-air on Saturday.

Premiere
The Singing Bee premieres on Tuesday July 10th at 9:30pm on NBC, following America's Got Talent.

It was originally scheduled to launch in the fall of 2007, but because of FOX's show Don't Forget The Lyrics, they bumped it up to premiere on the day before the FOX show starts.

I wonder which one will be better.
