Finish The Lyric Alternative Edition

The game is simple and easy to play. Follow the guidelines for execution here.

Read the lyrics of one or two lines of the song. Or, you could play the audio.

The contestant must answer with the song’s next word, phrase, or line (or two).

You can also connect it to a song you’re about to play. Some even play it as a virtual game without contestants by asking the question before a stop set, then paying it off coming out, followed by the song.
