IN NASHVILLE, TENN., THE PARTICIPANTS ATTEMPT TO PERFORM SOME CLASSIC COUNTRY HITS WITH THEIR OWN FUNKY SPIN FOR A LOCAL HONKY TONK BAR AUDIENCE, ON "THE ROAD TO STARDOM WITH MISSY ELLIOTT," WEDNESDAY, JAN. 26 AT 8:00 PM ON UPN
"I Feel Cowboy Sexy"-- When the tour arrives in Nashville, Tenn., the participants are challenged to put their own original, funky spin on some classic country hits, which they will perform at a local honky tonk bar, on THE ROAD TO STARDOM WITH MISSY ELLIOTT, Wednesday, Jan. 26 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on UPN.
Meanwhile, the competitors could win a chance to move from their austere bus into a brand-new, beautiful tour bus, but only if they can convince locals to buy enough tickets to their performance. Later, Mona meets with each participant individually, and grills them about which performer they think is the weakest on the tour, leading to the elimination of one participant.
