‘The Glee Project’ Interview: Blake On Winning The Competition
Much like his purpose in a final strain video, we could contend that Blake has been a promenade aristocrat of The Glee Project this season. He sailed by a weekly hurdles with ease, winning over both a judges and a viewers along a way. But when it came down to a final moments of a show, he didn’t consider he was going to take a crown. we spoke with Blake about what it felt like to win it all, his adore of acting, and of course, that poem.
Ology: Hi Blake! Congratulations! Can we report for me that impulse when Ryan pronounced we were a winner? What was going by your mind?
Blake: Oh, man. we couldn’t even think. we couldn’t breathe. My mind was racing. we overtly did not consider we was going to win. we suspicion that we had fought until a finish though we overtly suspicion that a dual girls subsequent to me – they had stories that we could see right when we demeanour during them. Like, we know, usually by looking during them you’ll see their stories and you’ll see how their storylines could play out. Mine, you’d really, like, have to get in depth, though we overtly suspicion they were going to win.
I was removing prepared to spin to them and cuddle them given we suspicion for certain they were going to win and when he pronounced my name, we couldn’t even, like, consider given it was usually like a dream come true. Like, this is something that I’ve been operative towards given my initial behaving category when we was really, unequivocally young. we mean, we usually can’t explain it. It was a best feeling that I’ve ever had. we mean, when we jumped we consider we roughly flew out of complacency given we got really, unequivocally high. But, it was usually extraordinary and a best impulse of my life, honestly.
How many of a risk did we feel we were holding by reading a poem during a end?
I consider it was a risk given it was presumably a strike or miss. Like, that was a final possibility we had to uncover Ryan who we was and that there were opposite levels of me. Not usually by a poem though usually in general. Like, that poem is usually a start of a levels of me that he could see eventually. And it was presumably strike or miss, we think. It was presumably a poem was going to work or a poem was going to wave so, we mean, we unequivocally suspicion it was a risk going in, though it was a final possibility that we had and we was totally going to take it.
Did we consider that reading that poem put we over a tip and gave we a win?
I didn’t consider anything in that moment. we mean, examination it, I’m usually blissful that we did it given win or lose, we feel like it showed me, we know. It finally gave me a chance, not usually to perform though it also gave me a possibility to usually be me in front of them. You know, given many of a time, you’re removing questions when we usually finished a song. You’re removing some questions before they contend “Okay, appreciate you.”
But this time we indeed got a possibility to pronounce my mind and, we know, they asked me if we had any final notation difference and we was like, approbation and we wrote something. So, I’m unequivocally blissful that we did it given we do feel like it helped, though we consider win or lose, it usually showed me for a universe to see and to usually know accurately who we am and what I’ve been through.
You mentioned that we didn’t see a lot of your personal story as simply as Ali and Aylin. What is one of a things that we should know about your personal story that we didn’t get to see on a show?
I’ve unequivocally left by a lot. we mean, by looking during Ali, we know what she’s left by and by looking during Aylin, we know what she’s left through. But, with me, we mean, I’ve left by a lot of tough times. You know, some times that were tough on a family, some times there were tough in school. we was bullied a lot in youth high and we wouldn’t know that by usually looking during me and I’ve strew a lot of tears in my life. And we don’t consider we get to see my exposed side. So I’ve had a lot of disadvantage – I’ve had a lot of exposed moments in my life.
From a start of a competition, did we feel like we were prepared for Glee or did that evolve?
It unequivocally evolved. we mean, we consider from a commencement we all felt like amateurs, we know, we unequivocally did, and we schooled a lot by singing as a foe went on. So we unequivocally feel like it evolved. Like, once we hit, we think, a center of a second half of competition, we consider then, like, we all felt like we were removing to that indicate where we all felt prepared for Glee.
Now that it’s over, what do we feel is your biggest breakthrough impulse on a show?
I consider my biggest breakthrough impulse on a uncover was – we consider “Actability.” we think, we know, for myself, given that’s my favorite partial of everything, “Actability” given we all did – we consider we all did a good pursuit as, like, a unit, we know, removing a right emotions displayed and all that stuff. But, we consider that “Actability” is unequivocally a standout impulse for me given we got to show, we know, my roots. Because everybody else had complicated strain via their whole lives though I’d complicated acting. So, yes, we unequivocally consider “Actability.”

Do we know anything about a impression you’re playing? Is there anything we can tell us?
I have no thought during all and we consider that it’s going to be a warn to everyone, including myself, given we have no thought during all. The usually thing that we know is that Ryan tweeted a night of a culmination and said, “Oh, who will The Glee Project 2 personality be? Writing such a good purpose for a personality and usually wait until we see who they are dating.” And when we saw it, we was like whoa, who am we going to be dating? So a usually thing that we know is that I’m presumably dating someone, so that’s really, unequivocally exciting, though we know zero else.
Do we have a dream impression that you’d like to play?
I mean, I’d adore to be, like, we know, a personality for a choir room and usually to – I’d adore to be on a football team, that’d be amazing. But, I’d adore to be in a choir room and I’d adore to be that go-to man for everyone. But I’d also adore to be that man that, we know, he’s there for everybody though he’s also got some things – some skeletons in his closet, we know. He’s also got some things in his life going on that he usually doesn’t wish to open adult given he’s so used to being there for everybody though he’s not used to carrying to opening to someone. So I’d adore to be that man who’s there for everybody though he’s got something going on in his life that secretly, we know, we don’t know what’s going on though eventually they boil adult and afterwards people usually have to accept – like, to assistance him – to finally assistance him after he’s helped everyone.
What strain would we like to strain on a show?
I’d adore to sing “The Way You Make Me Feel” by Michael Jackson. I’d adore to, like, dance out that strain given that’s a form of dancing that we grew adult with, is examination Michael Jackson and amatory his music. And also, like a Gavin DeGraw song, I’d adore to do “Not Over You” or a strain by my favorite band, The Cab. So those 3 choices for sure.
Which plea was a hardest for you?
I would contend slushies given – I’m going to contend dual things. Two things were a hardest. Slushies given it felt like we were removing slapped by a snowman in a face and it was crazy. we mean, it was so cold. When we’re removing slushied, we couldn’t feel a left side of my body. It was like a some-more we got slushied, a some-more we went dull and it was crazy and it hurt.
But also, what was a small bit harder, that we would take slushies over, is a barrier course. And we consider to some people it didn’t demeanour like much, though a some-more we did it and with a persperate suits we were wearing and all that stuff, like, we know, it was intense. And we mislaid so many appetite and by a time it was over we unequivocally felt like we was going to, like, gloomy given we had to, like, chug waters and just, like relax. we couldn’t even move. So, unequivocally those two.
You guys all seemed to get unequivocally tighten during a show. Do we still keep in hold with a other contestants?
Oh, yes, yes, yes. we speak to Michael a lot. we speak to Abraham a lot. we speak to Nellie a lot. Everybody, we consider is – for a many part, everyone’s vital in Los Angeles, so we’re right by any other now. So, Lily usually changed out, like yesterday she strictly got here. And, yes, we’re all gripping in touch, for sure.
What’s a many critical thing that we took divided from a whole experience?
I consider a many critical thing that we took divided from a whole experience, and this is something that we always told myself to keep in mind, though via this knowledge we indeed used it was, unequivocally never to get disastrous and always stay – like, usually go with a certain given any week, we mean, we usually had faith. And no matter how bad things were removing or no matter how, like, bad we was during certain points or something if we was going by a tough time, we usually had to stay focused and usually stay positive, we know. And, trust yourself as you’re doing, like, any activity, like a task assignment or a strain video or even a final possibility performance. Like, usually trust yourself, trust your moves and usually concede yourself to mangle through. Definitely, that’s what we took from this experience.
