This week on “The Glee Project” the seven remaining contenders – Marissa, Hannah, Lindsey, Samuel, Cameron, Alex, and Damian - must demonstrate their tenacity with the homework assignment “Bulletproof” by La Roux. Hannah asked for a dictionary to actually learn what the word tenacity meant. After tonight’s show half of the original contenders will remain.
The guest judge and mentro for this week was Max Adler, footballer Dave Karofsky on “Glee”. In the middle of the homework assignment performance Max stopped the song and had them start again asking to see more from the singers and to do something different. The winner of the homework assignment was Marissa – her second win.
This week’s video performance was a mash up of “Under Pressure” and “Ice, Ice Baby”. Along with the most demanding choreography the contestants have ever faced; the video shoot involved being slushied – a lot.
In the studio, some of the singers had a bit of trouble connecting with the song and showing the proper emotions.
Samuel called the slushie video shoot the funnest shoot so far. Damian said it felt like his ears were going to fall off. Hannah said ti was fun. Alex called it madness, mayhem, and foolishness. Cameron called it the coldest thing my body has ever felt and had a bit of trouble getting throught his section of the video shoot. The dance choreography had to be shot in one take meaning the contenders had to nail it the first time.
Casting director Robert Ulrich announced that it was the first time that the decision for who were called back was not unanimous. Lindsey, Samuel, and Damian were all called back for next week and safe for another week. Of the four left Hannah was on the call back list; but despite winning the homework challenge Marissa was in the bottom, along with Alex and Cameron who have been in the bottom before. This week the songs being sung for last chance performance were all songs the trio had done before – one of their audition songs.
First up for last chance performance was Alex who performed “And I’m Telling You I’m Not Going” in drag. Despite being a little shaky on heels, Alex belted out the song including the high note at the end. Ryan Murphy loved it.
With her first time in the bottom, Marissa performed “Hate on Me” by. Ryan said Marissa’s talent was undisputable but said she needed to be a little less all over the place and in control.
Last up was Cameron who ended up in the bottom three because he broke character during the slushie shoot. Cameron performed his original composition “Love Can Wait” as he played his guitar. Ryan called Cameron a great performer but was a little worried about his acting.
Ryan Murphy said that it came down to who he could write to. In a shocking result after winning the homework assignment two weeks in a row, Marissa was not called back for another week.
Next week the two girls and four guys must show off their sexuality with “Like a Virgin” by.
