Last week on Bravo‘s Platinum Hit we watched as the song writers took a road trip and a relationship starting to blossom. This week, with Rap comes more romance and bitter rivals as frontrunners begin to emerge. Read on for more details…
Tonight on Platinum Hit the song writers were asked to write a Rap hook and Jewel was joined by songwriter, producer, and musician, Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins. But Rap wasn’t the only catch tonight as the songwriters were told that their hook had to be about a super power – talk about a tough challenge!
Some of the hooks were comical, and others were just downright stupid, but this week proved that frontrunners are starting to emerge as Johnny wound up winning the hook challenge again with his catchy Rap tune about “walking through walls”. Sonyae followed in second place with her strong woman rap, while Jackie ended up in third with her comical white girl attempt at rap (and laughing at herself).
When it was time for the elimination challenge, Johnny chose both Scotty and Jess for his team – and we all know why he chose Jess….although they both said they have been wanting to work together. Sonyae chose Nick and Melissa, while Jackie chose Bryan and got Amber by default.
Then Jewel announced that they would have to incorporate a different genre into their Rap tune, such as “Walk This Way” by Run DMC. Definitely not an easy task, but the teams managed to make it work. Johnny’s team took an Opera route with their chorus being his Rap verses, while Sonyae’s team took more of a Rock-like feel added to the Rap. Jackie’s team who was doing a comical rap chose to go with a Doo Wop addition, which in my opinion was definitely the worst choice.
During the writing sessions, Scotty worried that if his team failed, he would be thrown under the bus since Jess ad Johnny were starting to become romantically involved. And this week as we watched more late night dates between the pair, we even got to see them share a kiss! I can’t help but wonder how far these two will take it next week.
Then it was time to perform for the judges, and Jackie’s team was definitely the weakest, with the other two teams being very strong. After the performances, the teams were waiting in the studio and Nick started drama as he usually does, but this time with his team member – Sonyae! As Scotty informed Jackie that others were badmouthing her, Nick jumped in and accused Sonyae of being the number one backstabber, but she disagreed. Needless to say the rivalries will be tough from here on out and I bet Sonyae will think twice about ever choosing Nick for her team again!
When they went back to the judges, the teams were informed that both Johnny’s team and Sonyae’s team had very good performances, but it was once again Johnny’s team coming in for the win – looks like Johnny is really coming out as a frontrunner! But the bad news was that Jackie’s team came in last place and someone would be going home. The judges decided that Amber did not put enough effort into the songwriting and she would be going home!
