Ep 4: Hoodwinked, Bamboozled, and Ambushed

There's a meltdown at the Factory this week, as the team brings Lizzy, a talented 22-year-old singer/songwriter full of potential but a dark, painful relationship with her mother has kept Lizzy emotionally repressed from her music. Kandi pushes Lizzy to the limit to face her pain and channel it into an emotional ballad. Up against Lizzy is Brandon, a 23-year-old Disney parade performer. He has all the ingredients for stardom, but his lack of "flavor" could keep him marching permanently if Kandi can't find a way to break his shell. Then, tempers erupt in the studio when Don Vito pushes Selasi's buttons too far, causing a huge blowout. Phaedra Parks makes a special appearance to help mediate the dispute and whip the team into shape.
