The Glee Project Review: Let Your Geek Flag Fly
Last summer, we was bored.
Isn’t that how these stories customarily start?
So yes, we was wearied and wanted a new uncover to watch. we flipped by my On Demand and saw they had a initial 4 episodes of this new uncover called The Glee Project. we hadn’t listened most about it, yet we figured, since not?
And as they say: “Before we knew it, we was hooked.”
The Glee Project is a talent foe put together by a makers of Glee to find a new expel member – a leader gets a 7-episode arc, with a probability of an extension. Last season, Ryan Murphy (co-creator of Glee), Zach Woodlee (choreographer), Robert Ulrich (casting director) and Nikki Anders (vocal coach) couldn’t collect only one winner. So we got Damien McGinty (now Rory) and Samuel Larsen (the eremite Joe) as initial place winners. This season, Murphy claims they will only pick one – yeah, yet that’s what they pronounced final year.
The Glee Project, most like Glee, is all about a characters and their credentials stories. There’s Mario, a blind contestant, Ali, who’s been inept given she was 2, and Tyler, a transgender who’s now traffic with a voice change given he starting holding testosterone pills 7 months ago. That’s only a tiny apportionment of a contestants – in total, the Glee Project has 14 hopefuls, any with a story of their own.
The format for any part follows a same as deteriorate one: first, a organisation contingency perform a low-pitched series together in front of Ulrich and a special “Glee” mentor. Then, they ready for their large strain video fire by attending choreography lessons and going into a studio to record their vocals. The large exam comes when they have to film a strain video. After all of this, 3 of a contestants who are suspicion to have finished feeble that week are given a “Last Chance Performance” that they will have to perform in front of Ryan Murphy. One will be eliminated.
The thesis this week is “individuality” and a contestants sing Lady GaGa’s “Born this Way” for Robert Ulrich, Ryan Murphy and Lea Michele. Michele gave some constructive feedback to a contestants, yet I’m still not wholly certain since she picked Shanna as a winner. Even in a recording studio, it sounded to me like Shanna was yelling her lines, yet Nikki seemed to adore it. we theory they are a professionals.
The strain video this week is “Here we go Again” by White Snake. Maxfield, a nation thespian who only started behaving 6 months ago yet reminds me of a blond Jesse St. James (minus a attitude), is struggling a small bit. Taryn, a 22-year-old who’s never been divided from home, is also not putting onward a effort. It’s impossibly easy to tell who has “it” and who doesn’t when they’re putting together a strain video.
For a final possibility performance, Maxfield, Tyler and proprietor coquette Aylin are picked. Aylin blows me divided with a ballad opening of “Without You” by David Guetta. we unequivocally didn’t know she could sing like that! Ryan loves her celebrity though, so she’s safe.
Tyler is given a peculiar strain choice of Jackson 5’s “ABC.” His voice is not clever during all, yet that could be since of a aforementioned testosterone. However, even Ryan says that, vocally, Tyler won’t be means to contest with a other kids. Yet for some reason, he’s saved.
Poor Maxfield never unequivocally stood a chance. He’s charming, yet his voice is unequivocally simple, and he seems unequivocally laidback. You don’t unequivocally get most from his personality, and for a uncover like this, that’s bad. Frankly, I’m not a large nation fan either, yet we still wasn’t intuiting a hint or any arrange of appetite from him during his final possibility opening of Willie Nelson’s “Always on my Mind.” we unequivocally kept wondering since he wanted to be on this uncover in a initial place.
So Maxfield became a initial casualty, and there are 13 contestants left.
(PS: Did anyone else view Figgins creation a cameo in a strain video or were my eyes personification tricks on me?!)
