With roses and hearts and again up dancers who’re dressed up like… the colour purple? It’s laborious to inform, however the message is obvious: The Black Swan loves love.

The Piglet Is Beating the Odds

5: 23 PM:

After a high-energy tune last week, The Piglet is slowing things down with a Phil Collins jam this week, and it’s still working for him. He seemingly doesn’t have a weak spot when it comes to the genres that he’s tried.

This week, Piglet is crooning to show off his softer side with a cover of “Against All Odds (Take a Look at Me Now)” and while it’s a far cry from some of his earlier numbers, even when he’s slowing down the music he’s speeding up hearts.

Accompanied by a pianist on a white baby grand, this number proves The Piglet doesn’t need a lot of big sets of pyrotechnics to captivate audiences. And, as the song builds to it’s high-point, even the pyrotechnics feel strangely beautiful.

“That was superior, Piglet!” Jenny yells.

“At the tip of the day, it comes down to 1 factor: how badly would you like it. And it looks like you need it most,” Nicole shares. “For me, that was certainly one of your greatest performances.”


Bonus Clues:

And they all see legit annoyed by it. I have to wonder if this particular twist is something they will bring back next season, because the panel doesn’t seem to dig it. And also, it feels super unnecessary, but whatever.

However, he gives a seemingly bigger clue when he tells the panel, “I’ve been following [Piglet’s] profession since he caught touchdowns from Dan Marino.”

Robin then threatens Cluedle-Doo by eating a giant bucket of fried chicken that seemingly appears out of nowhere.


Panelists’ Guesses:

Ken thinks it could be Ian Somerhalder.

Robin guesses Taylor Lautner.

Nicole suggests it could be Brian Littrell or Nick Lachey, and Jenny agrees.

– Says, “It all labored out. Then I discovered my actual dream lady who beloved me and my apple head.”

Robopine Turns on the Water Works

5: 14 PM:

Tapping into the R&B well yet again, Robopine is proving once more than when it comes to stirring, heartfelt ballads, he’s definitely got the market cornered — at least among the spicy six.

Crooning a heartfelt rendition of “Water Runs Dry” by Boyz II Men, Robopine is making Nicole and Robin feel all the feels. 

The number is simple, beautiful and emotional, and its clear how much soul and pain Robopine is infusing into the surprisingly brief tune.

“You’ve actually been knocking the ballads out of the park,” Robin shares. “You’ve been by a lot in your life and you’ll actually really feel it and listen to it in your voice.”


Bonus Clue:

Robopine’s mind-reader scan shows an image of a lightbulb in his head.

“I’m simply not hurting for concepts. I’m hooked on creativity,” Robopine shares.


Panelists’ Guesses:

Jenny thinks it could be Usher or Forest Whitaker (because they were both in Light It Up).

Nicole suggests it could be Tyrese.

Chrissy thinks it could be a different rapper-actor, Tank.

Mind-Reader Clues

Okay, so, the season got somewhat invasive with their clues when they started stealing stuff from the contest’s houses, and now they are full-on invading their minds with a special high-tech mind-reading computer!

The furry snow monster is performing an high-energy cover of Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock’s 1988 megahit “It Takes Two,” and it’s absolutely electric.

Whoever is under that Yeti costume absolutely knows how to dance, and how to completely own an audience. He’s effortlessly fun and is definitely the season’s frontrunner! Especially when he ends his number by doing the splits — IN A YETI COSTUME!

“I imply, he ended within the splits, Nick!” Nicole exclaims after the number. “All I saved pondering was, ‘I wanna go to your present!'”

“He is a multi-threat!” Jenny provides.
