0 (Special Sneak Peek) "You might not know who I am yet, but I can say a Taylor would - especially this one."
4 "I chose the Caterpillar costume because ultimately, my life has been all about metamorphosis. Growing up, I was lonely. You know, things weren't always great at home, and I was rebelling. So I left home at a young age-- at some points lived in my car, was homeless, and even started stealing to make ends meet. My parents used to tell me that I was gonna end up in jail, and boy, were they right. I think the thing that thrilled me the most was all of those voices from my past telling me I'd never amount to anything. Well, I showed them. Tonight, this Wildcard is here to steal your date, and hope that you'll forget about all these other singers and only have eyes for me."
6 Caterpillar: "I didn't know my whole family growing up. So when I became a telemarketer, it kind of gave me an excuse to call them. I would call over and over."

Voice: "Hello?"

Caterpillar: "But I was scared to tell them who I really was."

Voice: "Hello?"

Caterpillar: "When I finally told them, they wanted to connect. But I had a lot of apprehension, because I didn't think they'd want to get to know the real me. To my surprise, they accepted me with open arms. So you just never know how a simple phone call can change your life. Hello?"

Family Member: "Hello?"

Caterpillar: "And for that, I'm thankful! But the thing I am most thankful for right now is good air conditioning on stage, because, whew, I'm gonna need it. The biggest challenge is remembering to sing the correct words. I'm letting the world and the judges know that it's gonna be me."

8 "After the last two performances, you might think I seem pretty comfortable on this big stage. But I'm not, I'm kinda terrified. You know, I've never done anything like this before, but I'm doing exactly what I've done my whole life. I fake it until I make it. I've done a pop song and I've done a ballad. I wanna show people that I can do more. My mission for this next performance is just to show some range. This song takes me back to where I grew up. I'm gonna sing an old country song that my sister and I used to sing all the time. It's crazy that it's gonna go from 4 to 2 tonight. I wanna get to the Group B finals so freakin bad because, you know, when you fake it 'til you make it, and then you finally make it? It feels pretty damn good."
