Simular to "Name That Tune (1953)," six contstants (18 years of age or older) are selected from the studio audience at random and are asked to appear on the stage by host Joey Fatone. After the six contestants are selected from the studio audience at random, round one starts. In round one, Joey Fatone selects a contestant from the stage at random. The contestant is then told the year the song came out, which group/singer sang the song and what the name of the song is. The band starts playing the melody and singing the lyrics to the song and when the band quits playing the melody and singing the lyrics to the song, the contestant then has to sing the next line of lyrics to the song. If that contestant gets the line correct, he/she will then take a seat in one of four musical chairs and will get to advance to the next round and a new contestant on stage picked at random will have to sing the lyrics to the next line in a new song. If the same said contestant gets the line wrong, the next contestant on stage choosen at random, will have to sing the lyrics to the next line in the same said song. If none of the contestants on the stage can sing the lyrics to the next line in the song, that song is thrown out and a new song is introduced. When four contestants on stage have sang the lyrics to the next line and make it to the musical chairs. The remaining two contestants leave the stage and round two starts. In round two, Joey Fatone selects two contestants on stage at random and the two contestantes are told that they will be having a face off. The rest of round two is exactly like, round one except that the lyrics to the next line that the contestant has to sing are on the screen in random mixed up order. At any time one contestant gets his/her lyrics to the next line of the song correct and the other contestant gets his/her lyrics to the next line of the song wrong, the contestant that got the lyrics to the next line of the song correct advances on to round three and the contestant that got the lyrics to the next line of the song wrong, leaves the stage. The other two contestants on stage do the same thing as the previous two. The two that advance to round three are then asked to do the same thing as in round one except instead of singing the lyrics to the next line in the song, they will have to sing the lyrics to the chorus to the song. When on contstant gets the lyrics right and the other contestant gets the lyrics wrong, the one that gets the lyrics right, movies on to the "The Final Countdown" and the contestant that got the lyrics wrong, leaves the stage. In "The Final Countdown" the remaining contestant has to sing the lyrics to the next line in the song and for every song that the contestant gets right, he/she will get US $5,000. If the contestant gets the lyrics to the next line in the song wrong, the contestant gets a strike. If the contestant can get the lyrics to the next line in five songs correct, he/she will be awarded US $50,000. If at any time the contestant get the lyrics to the next line in three songs wrong, earning three strikes, the game is over that he/she will walk away with whatever amount of money that was won up to that point. Six new contestants choosen at random is then picked from the audience and the game starts all over again.
