This Week's Panel: TroubleSum, O.N.E., Medicine Girl, D-Risha, Young Sensation, Kyle Hubbard, Zavey, Brad Gilmore
Not Invited: Kevin Costner
This Week's Prompt: This is a sad one. What was Whitney Houston's greatest song and why?
TroubleSum: "One Moment in Time." The words and the delivery were both amazing and inspiring.
O.N.E.: My favorite song is the song I've been hearing since yesterday; "I'm Your Baby Tonight."
Medicine Girl: "Greatest Love of All."
D-Risha: "I Will Always Love You" from The Bodyguard soundtrack because it showed her range to its fullest extent with a power ballad.
Young Sensation: Her greatest song is "I Will Always Love You," because it is classic. The Bodyguard is still one of the highest-selling soundtracks.
Kyle Hubbard: Sad indeed. "I Will Always Love You"; it's iconic. It's a song everyone knows and that resonates with everyone on some level.

Zavey: All of them were great. Whitney didn't sing, she sang, straight from the heart.
Brad Gilmore: "I Will Always Love You." Even though it's Dolly Parton's original song, Whitney made it her own, like Johnny Cash did with "Hurt."
