This season also featured performances from and an interview with Wheeling band,Different Engine. Songs performed were "The Chase" and a cover The Bethany International Student Association band, the ever-popular Kosmos, performed "I See", Bob Marley's "No Woman No Cry", and their show-stopper, "I've Been Watching You (Champion Lover)".
