On this week's (July 10) episode of 'The Glee Project,' the remaining contestants were asked to demonstrate their fearlessness, which they all did. Sadly, the charming character known as Charlie was sent home, since Ryan Murphy decided he is a performer and not an actor/singer, which is what 'Glee' needs.
The Glee Project
Actress Jane Lynch, who plays the tracksuit-wearing antagonist Sue Sylvester on 'Glee,' was the guest mentor on tonight's (July 10) episode of 'The Glee Project.' Since Lynch embodies all that is fearless, she was the perfect advisor, since the theme of the ep was fearlessness. Who better to teach the remaining "wannaglees" a thing or two about conquering that of which they are scared?
On this week's (July 3) episode of 'The Glee Project,' the theme was 'Adaptability,' which is something all 'Glee' cast members must deal with week in and week out. There are set changes, cast changes, plot changes and storyline changes. You have to think, act, sing and dance on your feet, no matter what Ryan Murphy throws at you. Blind contestant Mario, who was lively and, at times, difficult, was sent home because the producers felt his acting didn't progress much, and that's a key part of the gig. He left with his head held high, saying that his blindness is last on the list of things that he "is." Amen, Mario, amen!
Kevin McHale rolls with the punches as wheelchair-bound Artie on 'Glee.' His character is the embodiment of adaptability, which was the theme on tonight's (July 3) episode of 'The Glee Project.' It made perfect sense that McHale was the mentor on a tough episode where the hopefuls were given little-to-no prep time and were hit with tons of surprises.
Sexuality is an incredibly important concept on 'Glee' proper, so it was no shock that it was the theme of this week's (June 26) episode of 'The Glee Project.' It was no doubt a challenging theme for the 11 remaining hopefuls -- namely transgendered Tyler, who was sent home -- since some of them have little to no experience with their sexuality, while others think that turning it on full tilt is the way to go.
Naya Rivera, who plays the confident, sexual and confidently sexual Santana Lopez on 'Glee,' was the guest mentor on tonight's (June 26) episode of 'The Glee Project.' The theme of the ep was sexuality, which is tricky, since it can be taboo or it can be overdone. It was certainly a challenge for some of the hopefuls, who are either sexually sheltered with little experience or who think that turning the knob too far is the only way to show sultriness. Rivera recognized this dilemma and told the contestants not to overdo it, saying, "To me, playing a sexual or sensual character is all about confidence. Less is more."
Samuel Larsen, the dreadlocked, brooding and hunky singer who was one of the winners of the first season of 'The Glee Project' and who went on to play Joseph Hart on 'Glee' proper, was tonight's (June 12) guest on the second episode of the second season of the 'Project.' He was in this very position a year ago, so if there is anyone who knows what the new crop of kids is going through, it's Larsen. He was there to judge the homework assignment, which was a rousing rendition of the Go-Go's 'We Got the Beat.' We got it, yeah!
