Hiiiii everyone..I'm back and ready to bring you back up to speed on that little thing we like to call The Glee Project. We were a bit busy over the past couple of weeks so we didn't' have time to update with TGP news until right now. So it'll be another short story covering the past two episodes. Let's do this.
Episode 206: Fearlessness
It all begins as usual and Robert announces to the contestants that the theme for this week will be fearlessness! The song that they are given to sing is Now That We Found Love by Heavy D & the Boyz. Aylin is pumped about this…but she honestly seems to be pumped about every theme every week.
Before the contestants head into the studio with Nikki, we have some "dorm room" chatter. Nellie is nervous
There wasn't choreography again this week because they are shooting this scene in a pool. While we didn't see Zach teach them dance, we did get to see him while they shot this video. <3 Aylin is the lucky person to get a slushy in the face first and she basically laughs as soon as it hits her. I can understand this because I've been slushied before but I also wasn't trying to be an actress so…oops Aylin. Lily is mentored by Jane, blah blah blah, Lily is boring. I'm not a huge fan of Ali's voice but she is starting to step it up when it comes to acting and you can tell she definitely wants to be on this show. She asks Erik if she can be slushied in the video - she wasn't originally to be slushied because her body doesn't do well in extreme temperatures - but she wanted to be part of it because she's a badass. She's taking it like a champ but that is short lived and she ends up not being able to breathe but she recovers from that quickly. Here is the final video below:
Charlie and Aylin make out and
Aylin performs Take A Bow by Rihanna. She sounds really good. Her voice is really good, I cannot deny that. Ryan tells Aylin that she needs to be both strong and vulnerable in her performances in order for him to get more of a feel for the character that she would play.
Ryan can't really be bothered this time with Charlie's antics and tells him that he needs to work more on trying to perform and work with groups better. Nellie sings Beyonce's If I Were A Boy and naaaaaaails it. She's perfect. I can't say it enough. Zach cries…which makes me cry. She tells the judges that her self-confidence has always been an issue with her and she's been working harder and harder to overcome it.
The judges have a hard time making their decision but in the end, Charlie is the one that gets sent home. Everyone cries, especially him and Aylin. They awkwardly make out in front of everyone and share such a dramatic exit that I legitimately thought that Charlie was like being sent to the moon for forever or something. Just..so awkward but the right decision was made!
Episode 207: Theatricality
We start the episode with a little bromance drama between Michael and Blake. They don't really have any issues except Michael is afraid that he's being compared to Blake but Blake is like no way bro, we're different. Then they are sort of upset when it sinks in that they are definitely best friends but also competing against one another. Dun, dun, dun. Robert decides it would e a good idea to ask everyone what the house was like without Charlie
Before the video shoot, Ali gets to meet with Grant. Out of all of the contestants, she seems to be the one who asked the most questions and opinions during her one-on-one. They finally get to shoot the video and Zach and Robert discuss how Ali is really bringing it and did the best during everything all week. Nellie has problems being sexy and confident, once again, in her scene and it takes a few shots in order for Erik to get something that he can use. Shanna doesn't really well with her portion of the song. Especially since she is wearing a meat dress that starts to spoil during shooting which smells like complete nasty. It starts to make her sick but she powers through it! Here is the final product of the music video:
First, I would like to say that I love Abraham. I think he is the sexiest thing ever in this video while he's depicting David Bowie. I will not back down from this statement so get used to it. I love it. I love androgynous men. Holla. The judges are really impressed with the way Blake is handling playing Boy George by NOT making him some flaming homosexual man, which is what straight guys would normally tend to do. Lily
The dreaded bottom three is approaching but Ali will definitely not be part of them! She is first on the callback list again this week! The bottom three end up being Nellie, Abraham and Lily. Nellie performs first for the judges and she sings I'm The Only One by Melissa Etheridge. I thought Nellie sounded freaking' amazing and was actually showing some real passion while performing this song, which didn't go unnoticed by Ryan. However, the repetitive issue with her confidence and indecisiveness worries him when it comes to casting her. My boyfriend, Abraham, performs Stereo Hearts by Gym Class Heroes featuring Adam Levine. (Also, upon hearing the song, Ryan feels it necessary to state aloud that he loves him some Adam Levine. I laughed.) Abraham misses a few words or replaces them I think but does well and Zach loves it a lot. He tries to suck up to Ryan, even by telling him how much he loves his little hat, but Ryan once again cannot be bothered by it and tells him to drop the diva and proceeds to ask him why Nikki's earlier question upset him. He tells Ryan his story and Ryan is like who curr, just be you and Nikki is like a lot and most all rock stars are androgynous so own it! Abraham decides it's time to stop pretending and embrace is! Please do, Abe…please do. Lily, of course, was given Adele's Someone Like You. I personally felt she started off a bit shaky but did well, in the end. Zach cries. Ryan loved her performance but questions her decisions that she made during the music video. Lily then says that she was confused by the directions that were given to her (by Zach) and Ryan cannot be bothered by that either. Which then basically caused Lily to turn into the Hulk by screaming and flailing at Ryan about how good of an actress she is. It was embarrassing to watch.
Robert posts the list and we find out that Nellie is the one that gets sent home. I was obviously livid and still am. I think she could have gone another week. Lily should have been sent home for scaring the shit out of everyone with her outburst but mainly for saying that Cyndi Lauper wasn't a pop icon.
And that is what you have missed on the last two weeks of The Glee Project! Now that my favorite is gone, I'm totally team Blake, Abraham and newly added…Ali. I would like to wish Nellie all the luck in the world and hope that she puts an album out asap because her voice is baller status.
