Marty said, "Superlatives. The song said all the good times have passed and gone. That's not true. That's not true coz we're glad to be with you. We got good music on our mind today. I walked into my friend Manuel's store to get a button repaired on one of my coats not long ago and saw this family playin' in Manuel's store. I fell in love with their music. Representing Lafayette, Lousiana, ladies and gentlemen, you're gonna love 'em. They're authentic. They're the real deal. How 'bout a hand for L'Angélus. They performed "Ça C'est Bon."

Marty said, "All right. Good job, Paige. Good job, John." After a commercial break, which included congratulations from RFD-TV to Marty and Connie on their Grammy® nominations, Marty said, "Welcome back, everybody. Hey Superlatives. The Rees family also known as L'Angélus. Great job. I asked the question, I said, 'Ça c'est bon means?'. And the answer is 'that is good'. This next lady comin' out, she is good. Cousin Kenny said he thought they were sayin' 'Saucy Blonde'. She's my favorite saucy little blonde. How 'bout a hand for the great Connie Smith. Come here, Constance. We were searchin' for the right answer. All right. Hi, baby. Ça c'est bon to you." Connie sang "Searchin' (For Someone Just Like You)."
