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.
