This week’s elimination on The Glee Project was a shocker! Shanna Henderson was in the bottom three for the first time on the Oxygen reality TV series. After performing Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger” for Glee creator, Ryan Murphy she was eliminated! Keep reading to find out what Henderson has to say about her experience.
Henderson has been involved in the world of music for 17 years. She is an experienced tuba and trombone player and even overcame vocal surgery! In high school, Henderson was very busy as she was involved in swimming, softball, basketball, show choir and band.
Determined to follow her dreams Henderson attended the Nashville open casting call for The Glee Project. After making the cut, she has given her all week after week on the reality series. Her chance to win had been favorable since she had never been in the bottom three. This week for the first time she was selected to be in the bottom three and had to perform for Murphy. Sadly she was eliminated from the competition.
Consistent throughout the series, Henderson shares why she thinks she went home. “Blake is the strongest male and they couldn’t get rid of the strongest male,” adding “then it came down to a story between me and Aylin and Aylin’s story has never been done on Glee before.”
Henderson says she believes that fellow contestant; Michael should have been in the bottom three instead. “I was shocked with the combination of the bottom three because I didn’t think that one of us deserved to go home when there were other people that were still there that deserved to go home.” She said.
Henderson also explained that the situation was unfortunate because she didn’t get the opportunity to show the audience everything about her life.
“Not that my story has been done on Glee before because it hasn’t but I definitely left out some very eye-opening and audience entertaining aspects of my story and I think at the end of the day that ended up biting me in the butt and sent me home.” She said.
While disappointed things didn’t go her way, Henderson says she understands why Murphy made his decision.
“It was devastating but at the same time I knew it wouldn’t be about talent it would be about story lines and I have been around the industry long enough to understand that, that happens every day–it’s just how it is.” She said.
