Love Overboard
19 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

Three Girls Three was my favorite A Different World episode. When Whitley(Jasmine Guy)and Jalessa(Dawnn Lewis) tried to enter in a songwriter contest for Knight's concert. Whitley and Jalessa added another girl into their songwriting group but ended up being as a disaster. The funny part of the whole show was when the girl tried to sing the song operatically instead their way. She tried to correct Whitley and Jalessa's diction and grammar and they find her annoying. The girl turned out to be spotlight hungry singer (she did not sound operatically at all) and stole Whitley and Jalessa's song for herself. Then the girl won the contest prize with another group. Whitley and Jalessa are very disappointed after the contest and had to put the contest behind them. At the end of the show, it showed Whitley and Jalessa singing with Gladys Knight, they sung an amazing song called Love Overboard, it had that 80's r&b/pop beat.I love Gladys Knight's song "Love Overboard", she has wonderful singing voice. Their performance and choreography was great. The scene had looked almost same as the one they used in the movie Dreamgirls. Also, Dwayne (Kadeem Hardison) is trying to get tickets but Ron(Darryl M. Bell)got him stuck as lighting director in the concert.Since Dwayne didn't want to do the job, so his friend Freddie(Cree Summers)offered him an extra ticket she had.
