The Glee Project Recap Fearlesness

Plus, Jane Lynch pays a visit during ‘Fearlessness’ week and the contestants get attacked with slushies!

On the July 10 episode of The Glee Project, love was slushied to death as the season’s power couple got destroyed!

The remaining nine contestants were given their homework assignment, “Now That We Found Love” by Heavy D and the Boyz, after it was announced it would be “fearlessness” week. Jane Lynch entered as this week’s guest mentor and sent all the contestants into a tizzy — for real!

Hopefully, the producers of Glee Project won’t ever force a rap song upon these contenders again as Nellie flubbed the lyrics, rear ends were slapped, and everyone looked wildly uncomfortable!

Lily came out on top as Jane’s pick for the win this week, namely because she “demanded her attention.” Jane then announced the music video assignment as a mashup of “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” / “One Way or Another” by Pat Benatar and Blondie!

Let’s point out that this week was highly enjoyable for the mere fact that Michael and Blake were both ordered to wear professional swimsuits in the spandex-y fashion! Sure, everyone else wore one too, but I definitely didn’t notice as my eyes were heavily transfixed on the torsos of these hunky gentlemen.

It must be noted that the contestants were also given the right of passage into Glee by getting slushied this week!

After both assignments were completed, the contestants were lined up to find out who would be in the bottom three. Whittled down to four, Charlie is said to be consistently making bad acting choices, Aylin laughs too often when she should be taking the competition seriously, while Nellie and Michael are both good, but they take too long to get there. Michael gets called back, but probably because he looked so good in his bathing suit!

The Bottom 3

Aylin – “Take a Bow” by Rihanna: Aylin gave a powerhouse performance, making Ryan Murphy wonder why she landed in the bottom three to begin with. Ryan even called Aylin a “game changer.”

Charlie – “It’s Not Unusual” by Tom Jones: Charlie gives an off-the-wall performance by making up his own lyrics, “It’s not unusual to say I could be on Glee / Although it’s been four weeks now in the bottom three / But Ryan Murphy, oh I know that you’ll agree.” Fortunately for him, the mentors loved the performance!

Nellie – “If I Were a Boy” by Beyonce: After Nellie gave the best performance of the season, Ryan asked, “What the h–l is the problem with this girl, does she not know she’s a star?” The judges admit they are tired of telling Nellie how great she is.

Not Called Back: Charlie

I totally agreed with the judges choice this week. Charlie has been in the bottom three for the past four weeks and it was clearly his time to go. While he’s a good performer, Charlie doesn’t seem to have what it takes to be a television star. Glee requires more than great musical performances, it needs great acting as well — something Charlie lacked. Unfortunately, his departure also subsequently ended his relationship with Aylin. Aww!
