Week Clue
2 "Now they say if you follow your heart, it's gonna lead you on some amazing adventures. I'm pretty excited to do things on this stage that I never thought I would do. But the truth is, I have spent my entire life learning how to champion my own heart. Growing up, there wasn't a lot of warmth in my household. I left home when I was pretty young and it was definitely scary at times. But I was determined to never turn back. I'm real grateful to the hardships that I've overcome because they've made me who I am. All of our hearts are destined to be broken. It's what we do with the pieces that make us extraordinary."
4 "I think people are often surprised that I'm shy, 'cause I don't come off like that on stage. I've definitely loved and lost, but hey, that don't mean I can't get back on my horse. Oh my gosh, we should make this into a dating profile! Mr. King of Hearts should have emotional intelligence, he should be smart, he should be handsome, he's outdoorsy- heck, I want him to have a private plane, if I'm askin'! Not even a joke. Hey, why not look? Speaking of l'amour, what's more romantic than a song in French? I've never sung in French before, but I've been practicing. Croissant. French fry. I think I've got this."
6 "One thing I've learned in my life is the power of words. When I was discovered, the press, just, it wasn't real kind to me. So their words were real critical, telling me what I should and shouldn't wear, what I should and shouldn't look like, all because I was a woman. But I didn't listen. I've always written my own story. I'm really thankful for my experiences, and hopefully I made a little bit easier for other people to follow. I'm doing this show to push myself. After the last performance, I wanted to pivot a little bit. I changed the song last minute so it's definitely a risk. My rehearsal was terrible, like it was awful. I said I wanted to be challenged so here I am, and hopefully I can pull it off."
8 "Coming into the last round, I was more nervous than ever. I changed my song last minute to one I hardly knew, and I was shocked that I pulled it off. I honestly didn't know how that would go, so now that it's the semifinals I kinda feel like I can maybe do anything. I know I'm up against three incredible competitors and two of us are going home tonight, so I'm gonna lean into the one thing that hopefully sets me apart, and that's my heart. This next song reminds me of the best/worst time of my life. Worst because a dream was ending, one I never thought would. But best because there I was on the other side of it, stronger than I ever imagined I could be. I've challenged myself throughout this competition in so many ways that I really think what's kept me here is always trusting my heart. So why stop now?"
10 "For my entire life, I wanted to have a sense of community and I found it in some really unusual and unexpected places. There was definitely a time in my life when I was living like an animal. My primary concerns were where to get food, where to get shelter that was safe. I remember this one time I was walking down the street, and I was really losing hope. And this man I passed by, he looked at me, and darn it if that man did not reach into his pocket and hand me out a five dollar bill. Knowing that he wanted me to eat that night, it just meant the world. I've gotten to see life from both sides now, real poor and real wealthy, and I still gotta say, it is the poorest people who are the most generous."
"I'm so grateful that I said yes to this experience, and the fact that I said yes might surprise some people. Because I've been known to turn down some really big opportunities with big price tags, but something about The Masked Singer just really made me want to do it. Because I knew I'd be excited to play and do things I've never done before. I mean, I even sang in French. I don't like to brag about myself, but I feel really good about what I'm doing here, and it just taught me that I just got to keep pushing. Only one performance stands between me taking on the Bull in the grand finale. And I'm nervous, but at least I got Nicole by my side. Although rehearsing without being in the same room has been the weirdest, I always like to be prepared, so doing a duet with someone I have not met in front of millions of people? It's way out of my comfort zone. So I'm right where I wanna be."
11 ”When I was just a teenager, I wrote a letter to my grandma. It read, Dear grandma, what’s new? Well, I quit my job and moved out. People like my music, things are happening, and I’m ready for it all. Love, Heart. But the truth? I left my job because I had no choice. And I have no place to live. My car was stolen too. People did love my music though, all three of them that came to my show. I didn’t tell her that though, because I wanted to fight for the light more than I wanted to focus on my bad circumstances. I still have that letter today, and I hope my grandma will be proud. Sometimes, the single greatest act of defiance is shining your light no matter what the world tells you.”
"Being the Group B winner feels so good. I'm so excited to take this thing all the way to the finish. You know I didn't start singing so that I could be famous. I started singing to save my life. I sang because I needed it. I really just wanted to come into this competition to share my heart. You don't have to be cool and you don't have to be perfect. You just have to make people feel. I know this is my last performance, and it's kind of bittersweet 'cause I really like doing this. I learned nobody can hold me back except me really, honestly. Winning this trophy would make me so proud because I've done this for my son. I want my son to see how I walk through challenges. For me, knowing that my son's watching just feels like it's all culminating into this moment. "
