The Glee Project Recap: Adapt It to Win It
July 3, 2012 09:09 PM PDT
The Glee Project threw some curveballs during a contestants during “Adaptability” week, and now we’re throwing one during you: Your unchanging recapper Michael Slezak is holding a much-deserved vacation, so instead of his witticisms, you’ve got me. And now, in a suggestion of this week’s episode, let’s adapt. (Never fear, he’ll be behind subsequent week!)
Things started off with Aylin and Charlie creation a guarantee to start uninformed and keep things particularly friendly. The suspicion was to use a appetite and time they spent on snuggling to, we know, maybe concentration on a reason they’re here and try to win a foe instead. The devise had incompatible formula for them though. In a task assignment – particular performances of Alanis Morrisette’s “You Outta Know” – Aylin soared, impressing guest coach Kevin McHale. (As deserved as Aylin’s win was, anyone else miffed we didn’t see some-more of Nellie singing a strain that seemed ideally tailored to her voice?) McHale also desired honeyed Ali’s mutation during her solo while we only suspicion she looked indignant in a crazy, boil-your-rabbit way. Meanwhile, Blake only seemed to be station there, a pointer of things to come.
Then it came time for a strain video challenge. But to keep a contestants on their toes – and give them a ambience of Glee‘s fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants prolongation report – they weren’t given a strain choice until they got into a recording studio. And even when they schooled a pretension – Jessie J’s “Price Tag” – many were still clueless. “I don’t know this strain from Adam,” certified Shanna. Surprisingly, a switcheroo did wonders for many of a hopefuls. Abraham, however, was another story. It seems Abraham does not know Adam either.
In gripping with a affability theme, a kids also had to learn choreography on a day of a shoot, though if we ask me, they got off lucky. Those dance stairs only looked like a garland of moving from side to side. And in a other half of a video, they were sitting! Still, Blake had difficulty mastering a supposed moves, while Mario was disintegrating during his behaving bits. His response: “I am unequivocally confused since we am a unequivocally good actor. we know my ability.” Stay humble, Mario!
Aylin kept her winning strain going, removing called behind first, along with Shanna, Michael and Lily. Then a mentors threw a final and flattering talent affability turn during a remaining contenders: There would be no Bottom 3, though rather a Bottom 6, and they’d have to sing duets! Ali and Abraham were woefully incompatible in a cover of Katy Perry’s “Last Friday Night.” Ali’s voice seems like it’s improved matched for a Broadway low-pitched – Legally Blonde? – than Glee, though Ryan desired her sexy, comedic chops. Once Mario and Charlie got past their issues on how to tackle their number, they indeed did a unequivocally plain pursuit on Elton John’s “Don’t Let a Sun Go Down on Me.” Finally, final week’s “Sexuality” integrate Nellie and Blake got themselves a ideal song: Foreigner’s “Waiting For A Girl/Boy Like You.” These dual really have chemistry. we can totally see a Grease-esque storyline on Glee where Blake’s renouned jock brings bashful lady Nellie out of her shell. Ryan urged them to be some-more aggressive, though they both have something, he added.
So a Bottom 3 came down to: Abraham, who was eclipsed by Ali (I forget he’s there many of a time, honestly); Mario, who’s a muted thespian; and Charlie, who’s still creation Ryan shaken about his ability to be professional. (Staying “in character” as a douche-y abounding child for a whole video shoot, and eventually creation all about himself, did not compensate dividends for Charlie.) In a end, Mario got a boot, though not before creation another it’s-not-me-it’s-you excuse, job a video instruction “confusing.”
Not confusing? Ryan’s preference to put a kibosh on Mario’s Glee dreams. And only like that, we’re down to 9 contestants.
What did we consider of this week’s Glee Project? Did a right competitor go home? Or should Abraham’s less-than-memorable opening have sent him bye-bye? Sound off in a comments!
