Hosted by comedic actress Melissa Peterman (Reba), it premieres June 20 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, following the second season premiere of the talent competition series, Can You Duet. Taped on location in Los Angeles, The Singing Bee tests contestants' knowledge of lyrics to well-known songs. Those who fail to accurately sing the correct lyrics are eliminated from the competition.

Another fun and festive night of karaoke was had last night, Friday May 8th at the Watertown VFW.
We had a pretty big crowd once again with many regulars and lots of new faces.. and voices. We celebrated Diane’s birthday as well as my own, and the theme of the night was TEQUILA!
Some of the outstanding song performances of the night included; Erin singing “Say You Love Me,” Doc Pete singing “Knockin’ On Heavens Door,” Ginny singing “Let Your Love Flow,” Pat singing “Runaround Sue,” and “Love Me If You Can,” Lisa singing “You Needed Me,” Bob singing “Hard Headed Woman,” Deb singing “Teddy Bear Song,” Rosie singing “The Rose,” Nicole singing ”Please Mr. Please,” Peter singing “A Boy Named Sue,” Bobbie singing “Travelin’ Soldier,” Al singing “Quando, Quando, Quando,” Pat B singing “Long Black Train,” and Diane singing “Cheater Cheater.”
We also had several great duets and singalongs.. Bob & Lisa did a great performance of “Unforgettable,” and Diane sang “Proud Mary” with Dee, “I Need You” with her son Robert, “Don’t Fall In Love With A Dreamer” with Pat, and then had all the group up for a fun rendition of “Lean On Me.”
Thanks to all for the shots and cards, gifts, and well wishes. I really appreciate it. Special thanks to BOBBIE!
Also would like to mention.. as I never have because they don’t sing, they only come to have fun and listen, Ken & Dora Bodah. They have come to all the VFW shows in the last 2 years just to enjoy the karaoke performances.
I hope to see ya’ll next Friday at the Black River Legion or on May 22 back at the VFW.
