Tonight on Oxygen, after heating things up last week on The Glee Project, the remaining ten contestants will have to prove that they know how to adapt and roll with the punches. And who better to help them than Glee‘s own Kevin McHale?! Keep reading for all the highlights.
This week on The Glee Project….
Aylin and Charlie are trying to cool things down a bit, so they can focus on what they’re actually there for to begin with — the competition. But that strategy won’t end up working out so well for one of them.
This week’s theme is adaptability, with the song being Alanis Morissette‘s “You Oughta Know.” The twist: no one can pick out their own parts this time. (You know — to like, adapt.)
To help them learn how to roll with the punches is, you guessed it, Glee‘s Kevin McHale, who surprises everyone by telling them that they’ll be performing the song solo, not in a group as they’ve been rehearsing.
After all of the performances, Aylin is the one who wins the 1-0n-1 mentoring session with Kevin, along with a stand-out moment in the group number, which will be…announced later. Yes, in the spirit of adaptability.
So, on to vocals with Nikki.
Unlike weeks past, this time, everyone’s learning the song – Jessie J‘s “Price Tag” – right there in the studio, which actually seems to be working out for most of the contestants. Abraham, on the other hand, is struggling a bit. And after having such a hard time with the lyrics and notes, he’s definitely not looking forward to having to learn the choreography on-set.
Luckily, for Abraham, he’s not the only one having trouble with the video shoot.
Cooling off seems to be working for Aylin, who was also the stand-out performance this week.
But for Charlie….
Well, he and five other contestants are in danger of being cut.
Instead of picking a bottom three, the six contestants will perform duets in front of Ryan – Ali and Abraham (“Last Friday Night”), Mario and Charlie (“Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me”), and Nellie and Blake (“Waiting for a Girl Like You”).
With only 2 hours to rehearse, Mario’s getting frustrated with Charlie, who once again wants to play with the song and rearrange it; but there’s no time for that.
Nellie and Blake are up first and have everyone in tears, followed by a slightly awkward performance from Ali and Abraham, and an emotional Mario and Charlie.
Ali, Nellie, and Blake are safe, leaving Mario, Charlie, and Abraham at risk of elimination.
With the list up, it’s Mario who isn’t being called back this time.
