This week on Spicks and Specks, Josh Earl, Ella Hooper and Adam Richard are joined by legendary front woman of the Motels, Martha Davis, opera singer Teddy Tahu Rhodes and comedians Frank Woodley and Luke McGregor.
In the first round, Know Your Product, with Teddy on her team, Ella chooses Romantic Opera, while Adam gives his team the challenge of Glam Rock, making Martha very happy. In round two, Look What They’re Done to My Song Ma, the teams guess the popular songs played by Phia on a thumb piano called a Kalimba – a little known African instrument enhanced by a loop pedal.
In the next round Two Little Words, team members guess the musician or band described to them in only two little words. Martha guesses for her team while Teddy dons the Spicks specs for his team.
The Spicks and Specks favourite, Substitute, sees Teddy taking to the mike singing lyrics from the children’s book Ted’s Lucky Ball and reliving his most awkward moment singing the New Zealand national anthem. Martha enchants us all singing from the book, Mastering Rubik’s Cubes.
Heading into the Final Countdown, Adam’s team is leading, but not by much… it’s anybody’s game!
