The Glee Project Recap: Contestants Sing Duets

July 17, 2011 08:20 PM by Veronica Dudo

The Glee Project on Oxygen is a reality TV competition where a group of young hopefuls are vying to win the chance to have a guest starring role on FOX’s hit TV show Glee. In tonight’s episode, “Pairability” the contestants are paired together to perform duets. Keep reading to find out what happens!

This episode tests the remaining eight contenders’ ability to collaborate. Glee star Darren Criss is the guest mentor and arrives with casting director, Robert Ulrich to hear the participants’ homework assignment. The contenders are paired together to sing Lady Antebellum’s, “Need You Now.” The pairs consist of Alex Newell and Hannah McIalwain, Matheus Fernandes and Damian McGinty Jr., Lindsay Pearce and Samuel Larsen, and Marissa von Bleicken and Cameron Mitchell. In the choir room, Darren picks Marissa as the winner of the homework assignment, therefore Marissa can select who she wants as a partner for the main challenge. She selects Samuel and together they work with Darren on their song.

Continuing with the duet theme, the remaining eight have to sing, record and shoot a music video. Marissa and Samuel are paired together and their song is “Don’t You Want Me” made famous by Human League. The music video is set in the eighties and before they finish shooting Marissa is told to surprise Samuel by kissing him at the end; she does and everyone is surprised including Samuel! Hannah and Alex sing “Nowadays” from Chicago where Alex dresses in drag. Cameron and Lindsay sing “Baby It’s Cold Outside” and they shoot it in black and white, a classic throwback to the 1950′s. Lindsay kisses Cameron at the end of their song shocking everyone! Damian and Matheus are given the song, “The Lady is a Tramp” and shoot it on a park scene complete with a bench, tree and autumn leaves.

Meanwhile, Cameron is dealing with an internal battle where he feels extremly guilty that Lindsay kissed him. He says he has a girlfriend of two years and can’t help but feel as though he cheated. He calls his mom and explains the situation.

It’s now time for the last chance performances. There are three pairs selected to sing again for Ryan Murphy: Damian and Matheus sing “These Boots Are Made for Walking” made famous by Nancy Sinatra; Hannah and Alex sing “Valerie” made famous by Amy Winehouse; and Lindsay and Cameron sing “River Deep Mountain High” made famous by Tina Turner.

Throughout the duets week, Alex has made comments putting down the other contestants specifically Matheus. This is brought to Ryan’s attention and he questions both of them about the situation.

The judges deliberate and make their choices and the call back list goes up. One by one, the bottom three consisting of Alex, Cameron and Matheus walk through the doors to see the results. Listed under “Not Called Back” is Matheus.

    There’s a beautiful quality to Cameron Mitchell’s voice. This guy deserves to get a recording contract. However, if it weren’t for the fact the guy’s a fan favourite, I’d think his chances of landing the guest role on Glee are slim to none. He’s open about his Christian upbringing and he’s got great morals – two strikes against him for Glee, which is blazenly anti-Christian. I think the first nail in Cameron’s coffin came when producer Ryan dismissed him with a “he’s too well-adjusted” the first time he was in the bottom 3. Ryan has no understanding of, or interest in, what it means to be a Christian teen today. I don’t even think this will be too big a loss for Cameron, who deserves to go on to bigger and better things.

    Well, as much as I love Cameron, he auditioned. They never made him do it. Don’t blame the creators of Glee. I’m not sure if Cameron was just niave or if he didnt understand how he felt when he entered. But their are plenty of people who are actors and are VERY religious. But they are acting. It doesnt make you any less christian. No wonder people think Christian have no sense of humour. Everything doesnt have to be taken so seriously. I don’t think with Cameron it was entirely his religion, I think it was to do with him as well. And the fact that he didn;t seem to feel like it was acting or that the kiss was fake. Maybe that woke him up to the fact that acting wasnt for him, as he had a more realistic view of things and he felt guilty even though he shouldnt have( as it was acting).
