Meet the Name That Tune Celebrity Guests: Cassadee Pope vs. Jana Kramer & Mel B. vs. Tituss Burgess
Cassadee Pope is a singer-songwriter. She’s been in the music business for many years. First, she was the lead vocalist in the rock band Hey Monday, with whom she released 1 studio album & 2 EPs. But then, she went solo in 2012 and rose to prominence after winning season 3 of The Voice. She’s released a few solo albums since then, including her most recent, 2021’s Thrive. Dabbling in pop and country genres, her voice blends beautifully, and further cements Pope as a talented name in the industry today. In her personal life, Cassadee’s been in a relationship with Nashville alum and fellow musician Sam Palladio since 2018.
They celebrated 4 years on Valentine’s Day. Cassadee captioned the post: “Happy 4th Anniversary, my Stars Wars lovin’- swan befriending- cleans up real nice Valentine.”
She also posted about her Name That Tune appearance, writing: “I LOVE playing this game so I was so excited to be invited to play on #NameThatTuneFox! I’m up against @kramergirl and playing for the @creativewavesfoundation. Tune in this Tuesday on @foxtv! @musicclubfox.”

Since then, she went on to become a mother, and has two kids from ex-husband Mike Caussin. Now, Jana’s in a relationship with Ian Schinelli, which Feeling the Vibe reported on last month. In addition, she continues to release music, host her Whine Down podcast, and run One Brick Wines.
As if her resume wasn’t already impressive, Jana’s also been in a slew of Lifetime holiday movies over the years. She just wrapped her latest one with Mario Lopez. Jana wrote: “That’s a wrap!!!!!!!!

Earlier this year, she was made a member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for her services to domestic violence organizations. Mel’s worked closely to advocate for victims, and with Women’s Aid, a charity organization for abuse survivors. She’s been married twice, and has 3 children.

Tituss Burgess is an American actor and singer known for his many Broadway musical appearances. In TV, he’s known for his role as Titus Andromedon on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. He actually starred alongside Jane Krakowski in the series, and Tituss was nominated for 5 Primetime Emmys for his role. Burgess has been linked to partner Pablo Salinas, but the duo are very private about their relationship. Recently, he’s taken to TikTok, making videos and sharing them to his Instagram profile. Check one out below.
Any other details?
In season 1, everyday people were guessing the songs from snippets, and playing for a monetary prize. But, in season 2, since there are celebrity contestants, they will be playing for a charity of their choice. This week’s celebrity guests are very excited to be a part of an episode. In the clip below, you’ll hear Tituss Burgess say that “it was so much fun” and Cassadee Pope chime in with how she thinks “it’s an awesome show.”
Since Mel. B and Tituss are facing off, they may be getting more top 40 or pop culture hits, whereas Jana Kramer and Cassadee may be getting more country songs since they’re a couple of the biggest names in country music right now. In the clip, you’ll see that Tituss is aware of Mel’s competitive nature, meanwhile Jana adds one extra word to the title of a popular Jason Aldean track, leaving Cassadee to guess it correctly.
