|0 (Super Sneak Peek)||If you're trying to figure out who I am, here's a hint: this sun knows how to shine like a torch, even during the freezing winter.|
|1||"Rise and shine, friends, and welcome to my solar sanctuary. I've had some extreme seasons in my life. When I sprung into existence, I felt like the center of the universe. At first, stardom was great, but it was a ton of pressure. The spotlight was scorching and I got burned out, so came my fall into a deep depression. I was frozen. But within the darkness of a quiet place, I transformed into a ray of light. And tonight, I'm springing back to life in this new universe! Sun's out, fun's out!"|
|3||"I love dressing up as the Sun. It's like every day is Halloween. I really do feel like a kid again. I missed out on a lot of my childhood growing up in a fractured home, but lately, I've made up for that lost time, discovering childlike outlets to make life magical. By going into the woods to find harmony in nature. I love dirt in my toes, a young memory of mine, and a land that slides as my heart walks the line. And I've become a whiz at cooking up tasty treats for like-minded and material girls. Finally, I'm always looking on the bright side, burning ugly rumors out of my life. Now I'm over the moon in this ultimate outlet for fun and joy."|
|7||"I never thought returning to the stage after all these months would've looked quite like this, but performing again feels absolutely radiant. Enough of me carrying on; honey, take the wheel!"|
(Sun's Sol Mate): "Like so many people, the last few months of isolation have been challenging for me and Sun. Y'know, we've tried to make the most of our unexpected time off by taking our RV out on road trips, though I'm always wastin' fuel blastin' the A.C. cause she's so dang hot! Heh heh. We realized we don't need much to be happy, y'know? We just need each other. But, I know Sun really misses entertaining people. Y'know, she's never taken this long of a break from spreading her light to the rest of the world. So Sun, that's why I'm so excited to see you rockin' out in the limelight again. Keep on shining tonight!"
|10||"I decided to do this show just for the pure fun and joy. And I feel Like I'm five years old again back at dance competitions where I could just move and be free. But what I didn't expect is for this to awaken the competitor inside me. I have a really hard time expressing my feelings. In the past, I've been afraid to speak dreams out loud, fearful they'd be struck down. But here, I'm not holding back. I now have a hunger and drive in me to win this entire thing. So tonight, against Popcorn, my strategy is to match her emotion and intensity with a song that exposes my entire soul to the world because I really need to shine the brightest for the last spot in the final three. Now let me break out this red-hot clue. Sorry."|
|12||"You know I've been in the industry a really long time, since I was a kid. But depending on when you discover me has probably influenced who you tink I am. You might see as the little girl with big dreams, or a pop princess, or the more grounded woman I am today. But as the Sun, for the first time in my career, I've gotten to show that I'm all of those things and more. After one of the most emotional performances of my life time last round, I've chosen a song that means even more to me because it's a tribute to the person who has loved me through some of my toughest times. He's always encouraged me to fly. And our love is a testament that love really does conquer all. And I hope that love shines through my performance tonight because it would feel pretty incredible to win.|
