‘Name That Tune’: Does Jenale win $100K? Here's why Jane Krakowski’s crazy party mix scares Randy Jackson
While Jenale made a good start Amber was soon to catch up and it got very interesting
Episode two of Fox’s reboot ‘Name That Tune’ saw legendary tunes being played by bandleader Randy Jackson while the host Jane Krakowski kept the contestants Jenale and Amber on their toes. The musical game show started with Krakowski’s very own party mix and as Randy noted, “I am scared of this” because Jane’s strong music background has made her listen to a wide range of different kinds of music.
The first two rounds in the game are a guessing round and a bidding round. The contestant that makes the most amount of money in the first two rounds goes on to play the Golden Buzzer round to win the prize money of $100,000. Here are the songs in Jane’s party mix that the contestants had to guess in the first round.
‘I got a Feeling’ by Black Eyed Peas, a party mix followed by J Lo’s ‘Waiting for Tonight’ and this mix gets crazy and that was why Randy was scared. Jane has 1963 hit ‘It’s my Party and I’ll Cry if I want to’ by Lesley Gore, ‘Celebration’ by Kool & The Gang, the ‘Chicken Dance’ song and ‘Tubthumping’ by Chumbawamba. At this point Randy said, “I don’t think I wanna come to this part.”
While Jenale made a good start, Amber was soon to catch up. Jenale is an aerospace engineer while Amber was a flight attendant. Jenale was on a roll as he was quick to guess every tune that came his way. In the bidding round he was able to guess two songs with just one note. The songs being ‘Bitter Sweet Symphony’ and ‘All that she Wants’.
Jenale said if he won the prize money he would buy his mom, who single-handedly raised him and his brother, a car. He would also pay off the downpayment of the house and reimburse his grandma’s house. Jenale went on till the final round and guessed two songs correctly, however, the third song he guessed was wrong which resulted in ending the game. However, he still managed to win $83,000 which is close to the prize money of $100,000.
The vintage musical game show 'Name That Tune' first premiered on NBC Radio in 1952. Originally created and produced by orchestra conductor Harry Salter and his wife Roberta Semple Salter, the series featured contestants competing to correctly identify songs being played by an on-stage orchestra or band.
