Mona invites whoever feels ready to step up to the mic. Frank B. wastes no time in doing so. Which I think is strategically pretty smart on his part. I feel like the person who volunteers to go first always gets extra points. Frank raps about trying to seduce a shorty whose name is either Deana or Lisa, or maybe both. He also sings a little chorus that goes, "Girl, I gotta have ya...uh! Usually I don't approach like this, but girl...somethin' about ya!" He does not mention his passion for the oral sciences. His performance gets kudos from the judges. Frank tells them that he's almost done with the song, and that he got a bad start with his man Dallas, and wants to impress him now. Dallas says that Frank is his man, and also a hard worker, and that he's coming on strong. Nic says that Frank doesn't fit the bill of a triple threat. Well, Nic doesn't fit the bill of a single threat, so he might want to shut it.
Yelawolf is next, and he raps something about living in the deep South streets. I think he says something about going where the city dwellers won't go, where the night air is thick with trolls. And where the backyard is stashed inside a stove. Yelawolf needs a little help with his diction. But I like it, I think. Teena Marie asks if he freestyled that whole thing, and he says that he wrote the verse. Which, fine. But then he adds that he wasn't really feeling the track, and that it didn't move him in any direction, so he pulled something out of his catalogue and tried to make it work. The judges look at each other, and wonder how someone could be such a dumb-ass.
Jessica takes the mic and sings something about going ahead with your bad self, and knowing that you got it going on, and bringing it on, sweet thang. Mona totally calls her out and says that she knows Jessica just made that up. Jessica says, "The hook, yeah." And Mona says, "No. The entire song." Jessica gives a little smile and shrugs, saying, "Aren't I adorable? And did I tell you my mamma's a crackhead?" Mona tells the contestants that they need to take the challenges seriously.
And then, fucking Nic. He starts his song by saying, "Mona, here we go, this is for you." Something tells me that Mona isn't going to go all Paula Abdul on him and be grateful that he's pretending to want to get in her pants. His song is nonsense. And he SUCKS. Frank reiterates that he hates Nic. Mona says that there's no diversity in Nic's subject matter, and that it's very linear. Teena calls him a "Wannabe LL," which, we infer by the sound of thunder clapping, Nic does not appreciate.
