‘Glee Project’ Recap: Tenacity Claims A Victim

Tue, July 24, 2012 11:49pm EDT by 30 Comments
The Glee Project Recap

Plus, Amber Riley pays a visit during ‘Tenacity’ week and the contestants are plagued by Ali’s inability to dunk a basketball!

On the July 24 episode of The Glee Project, contestants were pushed to their limits as their music video was to be completed — all in one shot!

The seven remaining contestants were introduced to the theme of tenacity by getting Destiny’s Child’s ‘Survivor’ as their homework assignment! (Isn’t it about time we get a Destiny’s Child reunion in the works?)

Amber Riley served as guest mentor and picked Ali as the winner of this week’s assignment. This makes two for two for Ali. She also won during last week’s theme of theatricality.

Following their homework assignment, the contestants were instructed they would be shooting a music video for ‘Eye of the Tiger’ by Survivor. However, the catch would be that the entire group would have to finish the music video in one shot — no mistakes or the entire group must reshoot the video.

This seemed funny at first until the group had to reshoot the video at least 30 times before completing. Aside from Abraham face planting through the locker room doors, Michael not knowing how to jumprope, and Lily learning how to strip, completion relied on Ali sinking a basketball through the net. That poor girl. It took over 30 times before Ali came up with the clever idea of the group lifting her up for the final dunk!

The Bottom 3

Michael – “Brick” by Ben Folds Five – Michael is so adorable and his performance was quite entertaining. But Ryan Murphy ends up telling Michael, “You’re not as good as Blake.” Ouch!

Abraham – “Man in the Mirror” by Michael Jackson: Abraham did okay with this performance. His voice was a bit squeaky, but it wasn’t horrible. Ryan is tired of his excuses.

Lily – “I’m the Greatest Star” from Funny Girl: Lily does an awesome job with this performance. She plays up the musical theater comedy and admits to Ryan that Aylin hurt her feelings and “can’t take her own medicine.” Ryan admits to loving a good cat fight and eggs her on for next week.

When the performances were all said and done, Abraham stormed back on stage to demand a spot on Glee. While I found his demand to be pushy and over the top, Ryan & Co. admit that they could see all three of the bottom contenders in a spot on Glee.

Not Called Back: Abraham

I’m not shocked. Abraham may never know if his tirade got him eliminated, but what I do know is that Blake and Michael (the only boys left in the competition) are much more easier on the eyes, so I don’t mind seeing Abraham go.

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers?

This author was extremely cruel. Who are they to say that Abraham is not as good looking as Blake or micheal? Plus the glee project is not about who is easier on the eyes but about talent and personality. I believe Abraham is an extremely talented young man with a unique personality that i personally completely fell captive to. I also disagree about the author’s comment about Abraham’s squeaky singing because his performance was not squeaky what so ever he simply has an original voice. I would also like to point out that the judges thought his performance was “okay” infact they adored his preformance. So please next time you want to write about a tv show at least get your facts right.

Wow. Way to be jerks. Who are you to define ‘beautiful’ to define ‘ugly’. To define who is in and out. Abraham was, is and always will be amazing. His looks are perfect just the way they are. I will miss Abraham so much. Glee is not about looks. Never was. Its about being true to yourself. Be who you are. To not be ashamed or afraid of yourself. And for you people to rip them down, to tear someone down your cruel.

Are you serious right now. Do you not understand that looks dont matter on Glee! Abraham is good looking but that doesnt matter! Glee is about being yourself and honestly Abraham was great at doing that! Alot of people out there feel ugly, does that mean if they feel that way they cant do be on TV? Every one is beautiful if their personality doesnt suck!

Wow. Unbelievable. This is rediculous! How can you be so rude? Abraha
had the most personality, flare, and look for glee. He’s unique. He’s himself. Whoever wrote this article needs to realize that a review is an OVERVIEW, not a personal, biased opinion. Imagine how Abraham felt while reading this. This article literally made me sick. Way to go hollywood, you’ve managed to make yourself look like a complete idiot.

Basically, all I have to say here is that this is completely biased. It’s not fair at all to talk about the show like it’s some kind of beauty pageant. It’s a COMPETITION. It’s based on talent, not looks. I mean, to publish something like,”Blake and Michael are easier on the eyes” is just rude and it really has nothing to do with the competition anyways. That definitely did not need to even be a part of this recap. So, congratulations. You’re completely shallow, and you’ve probably lost quite a few readers for this bit.

That was a really stupid comment at the end about Abraham. You could had told an honest review -but NOOOO -you had to be idiotic and lower yourself by comparing the guys. Everyone is beautiful in their own way and if you can’t understand that -then you should not be reporting on a show like Glee -or writing stories about it.

What a thing to say – “Blake and Michael are easier on the eyes” – that’s your opinion, which doesn’t count for much if that’s the way you report things!!! Abraham has an amazing look!

I mean seriously do you know what the fudge you write? I mean just because someone might appease to you more, doesn’t mean that Abraham is actually uglier than them. To be honest, Blake or Michael are also very good looking, but they are not as interesting as Abraham when it comes to video shoots etc. And gosh! You’re a reporter! How can you say that someone is ugly! That’s just egh… So unprofessional.

How dare you say that he isn’t easy on the eyes. Abramham is a VERY handsome looking man! That is SO RUDE! And some people might find it kind of racist.

Alli was a champ in the video shoot. She was absolutely not the reason for there being over 30 shots, in fact most of the do-overs were because other people (especially the four double-dutch jump-ropers) messed up and they had to start over. And considering that Alli had to hit a baseball and throw water bottles to the others earlier in the shot, and did that fine, and only had trouble shooting a basketball into a hoop, over her shoulder, while sitting in a wheelchair, at the very end of the shot, after having to do who knows how many shots because Lily, Abraham, Michael and Aylin couldn’t get that complicated shot (that’s why they were in the bottom four)- – I don’t think it’s very fair to criticize her.

I think Abraham was the most attractive person on the show, and the most interesting. I also think that if I were writing an article about it, I would avoid making biased, unprofessional comments like yours. Also, it might be prudent to re-read what you have written once or twice to check for grammatical errors before submitting it. Just saying.

Wow, possibly the most unprofessional review I’ve ever read. I mean, I can’t say that I was an Abraham fan either, but to reduce your view to a judgment based on appearances is just shameful. Isn’t that just the opposite of what Glee is all about? You might want to rethink how society and media have trained you to view attractive as just athletic-bodied, white guys. Also, you might want to rethink your own white privilege and how it impacts your ability to write a review.

I can understand judging the actual musical performance of the contenders, but to judge someone from his/her physical attractiveness? That’s terrible, and it doesn’t sound like what Glee and The Glee Project is supposed to be about. I hope you realized your mistake here. It’s pathetic, really.

You have horrible grammar (“much more easier”), are terrible at being a neutral news reporter, and a disgusting person to think that you could judge a musical performance with your credentials as an low-life internet writer. If you want to learn how to write, I suggest visiting therealabraham.tumblr.com.

What do I think? I think this is a obviously biased article with no attempt to hide any of YOUR opinions. Any one who reads this article can plainly see that you have something against Abraham. Aren’t journalists supposed to be unbiased? Last time I checked they were. Oh, and by the way, you have terrible grammar. “…Blake and Michael (the only boys left in the competition) are much more easier on the eyes…” ARE YOU SERIOUS?! “Much more easier?” This is why I don’t want to live on this planet anymore.

What the hell? This is such a bad article! First of all, the title of the team being plagued by Ali’s inability to dunk a basketball?! She’s so much tinier then all of us! And Abraham was probably the sweetest of them all, and lily has such a rude attitude and I think she should have gone home because it’s HER that can’t take her own damn medicine. You’re rude and biased.

I completely agree. Lily should have gone home WEEKS AGO for her attitude her first time in the bottom three! Her attitude from the beginning came off as cocky, rude, and selfish. According to Abraham’s interview with Entertainment Weekly, he was still injured from Theatricality week. Abraham said he injured his foot doing choreography and during the Eye of The Tiger shoot, he not only injured his OTHER foot, but he fell on his back too! And I find it funny that Amber mentioned her injuries and how she pushed through them, and when Abraham does the same thing, he was not called back. Lily vouches for herself, insults/curses the judges to their faces, and tears down other competitors, but keeps getting called back!? It really isn’t fair at all. What Abraham did was very tenacious and brave of him. He did nothing but speak his mind, he didn’t curse, insult the judges, nor bash other competitors. He should’ve been called back. As for the writer of this article…go back to elementary school and learn correct grammar! Take your biased chiz somewhere else!

You biased twat! Abraham is amazing and has way more talent then you will ever have, even in blogging! Oh and if that’s a dig at Abraham for not being white ‘i don’t mind seeing (you) go’ and find another job elsewhere because no one cares or agrees with your totally biased unsubtle opinion.

Abraham was extremely easy on the eyes, not that it matters, cause he’s a beautiful person all-around, and you’re rude.
