"That's Madonna, Right There!" -- The final five performers take a private jet to Los Angeles, where they move into a mansion, and later are surprised when superstar Madonna takes time from her busy concert tour schedule to meet with them and share some valuable advice on the music business, on a rebroadcast of THE ROAD TO STARDOM WITH MISSY ELLIOTT, Friday, Feb. 18 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on UPN. (Originally broadcast 2/16/05)
Meanwhile, after a shopping trip to trendy Melrose Avenue, top Hollywood stylists Emil and Terrell put each participant's personal sense of style to the test. Later, the vocalists get a special, up-close look at how Missy rocks the stage at a live concert performance in L.A. Finally, at the performance challenge, legendary R&B artist/judge Teena Marie asks the competitors to each write a verse for a song that they will perform together, leading to the elimination of one participant.
