Week Clue
1 "I'm 'the Lion', and I'm here to roar. This is my chance for people to see me perform without any preconceived notions of who I am. Some might say I'm Hollywood royalty, but now I'm standing on my own. And I'm stepping away from my pride to sing my heart out. I don't see a lion as just brave and courageous. True strength comes from embracing all your vulnerabilities. So here I am behind this mask, and I'm going to show my true self for the very first time."
3 "After my last performance, the panel's glowing comments about my voice, put me on cloud nine. Now, I feel like I can be a front runner. I've always loved to sing, but the anonymity of the mask has made me feel truly courageous. For me, using my voice to help others has always been very important. I tell my pride you have to be strong and stand up for what you believe in. So tonight, I'm going to give it all I got and sing my heart out. Because this lion is going to win."
5 "The last time I performed, Nicole wasn't impressed by my voice. But tonight, I'm here to prove that being on stage is my destiny. When I sing, I try to open up my whole heart so I can be a model of courage and vulnerability, just like the lion in my favorite movie, 'The Wizard of Oz'. They say there's no place like home, and I feel at home on this stage. I want all the panel to feel that, too. So it's time for me to stop being all sugar and spice. Tick-tock, the twister is coming. If you don't think I'm a professional singer, then it's time for me to let out my roar."
7 "Down in the cabaret bars of old Chicago, I hear whispers and gossip as people seek me out. But I like that they still can't say my name. Here in Hollywood, you can lose yourself in a famous family. It's not like the Bluegrass State I've known. Sisters. I know I can't get too comfortable in the competition. It's scary. But with true grit and a diamond heart, I'll separate from the pack and build my own empire."
8 "Every time I put on this mask, I transform in a way I never expected. For the first time, I'm judged only as a singer. I'm just the lion who wants to be heard, not the child of my parents, not the empire I was born into. I was always expecting to act the part. But I'm multi-dimensional. And like a true lioness, fiercely independent. Us girls, we run the world. And tonight, you better hold on. And keep guessing, because this lion mask ain't coming off any time soon."
