It was the end of the road for Dani Shay in this week’s episode of The Glee Project. After watching the episode on TV with her family, Dani talked with Entertainment Weekly about what she learned on the show…and how much she hates being compared to Justin Bieber. Keep reading for the scoop!
After a bit of a scuffle between Lea Michele and Ryan Murphy, Glee Project contestant Dani Shay was cut from the list of hopefuls. She later told Entertainment Weekly that, despite all the drama, she was still glad to have had the opportunity to work with the other Glee Project contestants (not to mention alums such as Samuel Larsen!)
Dani Shay may now have the whole Glee Project thing behind her name, but she still is primarily known as the Justin Bieber look-a-like from America’s Got Talent. She told Entertainment Weekly that she’s a little tired of being compared to the teen heart-throb. “It gets old. Especially knowing I didn’t cut my hair to go out and be a Justin Bieber look-alike. So to always be called a Justin Bieber look-alike can be a little frustrating when it comes down to me wanting to be a performer with my own name and my own vibe and image.” Okay, but doing a Justin Bieber parody probably didn’t help. It may have been tongue-in-cheek, but it has most definitely cemented the whole Dani Shay-Justin Bieber dichotomy.
