Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Cynthia Moore


Eileen has to decide if she will sell Nick down the river at the deposition into the illegal funding of "Bombshell". The fact that Nick has gone into hiding may make her decision easier. While the cast and crew wait in limbo as to Bombshell's fate, many, including Derek as director, Tom as musical director, and Karen and ultimately Ivy as chorus work on Veronica Moore's concert, which will be performed in 24 hours to a sold out house. Veronica wants this event to be her big break away from her sweet, ingénue image, or so she says. Despite the fact that a deal has been struck to air this concert on cable television, no one seems very happy due to competing priorities, namely those of Derek, Tom, Veronica, and Veronica's stage-mother mother, Cynthia Moore. Part of those problems may be solved by a new song for Veronica to perform that satisfies all the parties involved. Nothing in Tom and Julia's catalog fits the bill, so Karen thinks that Jimmy could write that song if there isn't one ... Written by Huggo

Smash The Song
28 February 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Once again another example of how bad this show can be even with a brilliant musical number such as "Can't Let Go". I don't know where to start because most of the episode was bad. Firstly Sheryl Lee Ralph playing Veronica's mother Cynthia just was not good and her scenes opposite Derek were just awful to watch, the character is just a poor attempt at trying to be Mama Rose. Anjelica Houston has never been one of my favourite film actors and now it's just laughable to watch her on the show and one of the worst scenes the show has done was Nick coming back to Eileen and Houston seemed to fon it in too much. Julia is insufferable on the show and every week they don't know what to do with her and once again she becomes too over the top. Then the last thing to the episode was the two inspiring song writers Jimmy and Kyle not getting what they want and now facing rejection well. Once again the episode was bad with some awkward musical numbers with only the final performance by Hudson maybe being a saving grace to the episode. Hudson needs off the show quick and the show must go into non existence.

EPISODE GRADE: D (MVP: Jennifer Hudson)
