August 07, 2011 08:09 PM by Veronica Dudo

On this week’s episode of The Glee Project, believability is the task for the five remaining hopefuls. Alex Newell, Damian McGinty Jr., Hannah McIalwain, Lindsay Pearce, and Samuel Larsen are fighting it out for a guest starring role on Fox’s hit TV series, Glee. Jenna Ushkowitz is the guest mentor for the challenges this week. Keep reading to find out who was sent home! 

This week’s theme is “Believability” and the homework challenge for the contenders is to sing “True Colors.” Ushkowitz is the guest mentor who critiques the contestants. One by one the five participants sing a solo in the song for casting director Robert Ulrich and Ushkowitz.

After the homework assignment, Ushkowitz says that she was captivated by Alex, Damian was dreamy, Samuel showed a unique intensity, Lindsay was a wonderful actress and sang a sweet rendition of the song while Hannah was incredible and joyous. Ushkowitz selected Hannah as the winner for the home assignment and will work with Hannah on how to be believable when playing a character.

Ulrich tells the contenders that for their music video this week, they will be performing Paramore’s “The Only Exception.” Ulrich explains that in addition to the vocals, the challenge will be acting out the feeling of “longing” for another person who is “longing for someone else. Also, different this week is that the participants won’t have to learn any choreography.

In the recording studio with Nikki Anders, Hannah; Alex; Lindsay; Damian; and Samuel go over the vocals for their upcoming music video shoot. Anders explains to Hannah that she needs to give more pain for her part; while Damian should be smoother and Samuel needs more confidence. During Alex’s session with Anders, he becomes extremely upset and breaks down. Anders goes over to him and asks what’s wrong to which he explains that his father died when he was only six years old and that he misses him tremendously. Anders is very understanding and tells him that it’s ok to let it out and suggests he use his pain to help him look “believable” during his part of the song. Alex returns to the rest of the group still visibly upset and he explains to them what just happened. Last, Lindsay goes into the studio to sing her part of the song and breaks down and cries. Anders looks very suspiciously at Lindsay who says she is homesick. Anders says privately that this isn’t the first time Lindsay appeared to be not real.

It’s now time to shoot the music video. The mentors help the contenders through it. After the video shoot; Hannah, Lindsay and Samuel are selected as the bottom three therefore they will have to sing for Ryan Murphy in the last chance performance. Lindsay is given the song “Maybe This Time;” Samuel has “Animal” and Hannah is given “Back To December.”

After practicing in their dressing rooms, the three perform for Murphy. Then, Murphy deliberates with Ulrich and Zach Woodlee and says that he has made his decision. Meanwhile, the bottom three contestants return to the group. The list is posted and Hannah, Samuel and Lindsay walk out to meet their fate. Under the Not Called Back List is Hannah’s name. Struggling through tears Hannah bids farewell to the final four and says she has had a wonderful experience on The Glee Project.

    it is unbelievable to send home hannah who is the most authentic person on glee. if it wasn’t for damien i would stop watching. he is not the only one i root for. all samuel does is stare…alex behaves poorly and doesn’t seem to give 100% and lindsey is inauthentic and makes me feel nothing.

    Sending Hannah home was the worst decision ever. She was the only person there that was authentic and that we could relate to. If wasn’t for Damiann too i would stop watching, the only ones that continuous on the competition are the most not interesting of all other that already gone home.
