only 12 left...wait...what?!?
Time for my weekly thoughts and opinions for the one subject I am sure you all care about *cough cough*: The Glee Project
So this week no one had to leave…well I really wanted Lily Mea to leave so I was a bit bummed about that but of course more than happy for Charlie and esp. Mario who really really deserved to make it to the next round.
So here come my thoughts on the contenders. In italic I added if I want them to see on Glee and in which role.
Abraham - well, he did not have much screentime this week but to see his softer and calmer side over his energetic was a nice change. I actually like it more, it seems more honest. I can see him on Glee but I would be more thrilled for others. If he makes it, he could play Tinas younger or older brother. I once read Tina is adopted (not sure if it was true of if RIB still remember) but if so he could be the son of her biological mother…would make for good drama and Tina deserves a great storyline.
Ali - I agree with what the mentors said about her voice. She tends to over- do thing, her performance in the music video was much better. And did I get goosebumps when I saw Aylin holding her during the HWA? You bet I did! Yes I see her on Glee, no not as Arties girlfriend. Her role would probably be a girl with an attitude over playing her fears with being cocky (much like Quinn in season 1) and not interested at all in joining Glee (at first).
Aylin - hm…I like her a bit better this Episode than in the others. I think she is on the way to fining herself and her acting was actually good during the video shoort. I am not sure I could have acted that well with Lily sitting on me, and I am not talking about her wheight, I think she looked so scary and fierce I would have run away…Am yes she could be on Glee but I can not think of any role I would like her to play.
Blake - Aw Balke, sweet sweet Blake. When he cried during the talk with Erik, it felt so true and relateable. I still think (and hellloooooo Robert agreed with me) that he is the best actor in the bunch. Totally! He is what Glee needs. Kinda the new Finn Hudson but hopefully with more wit and less attitude.
Charlie - Of course he would overshoot…Charlie bb slow down a bit would you. He is really growing on me and still in a sisterly way. He is waaaaay too cute with Aylin and “Fix You” was the bomb. I am not surprised Ryan liked him eventhough that is nothing you can rely on…we are still taking the Murph here.Undecided. In a way I would wanna see him on Glee but I am not sure if he would not drive me insane after a few Episodes…if you know what I mean.
Lily Mea - Can she just leave. I do not like her, she is not likable to me, no rolemodel. The way she went on Mario ehm excuse me BITCH who died and made you queen of everything. Ugh. I would have been so very happy to see her go. But I she gets a few points for saying sorry to the girl she once bullied. No.Just no.
Mario - I think he still has the problem that he wants to stand up for himself, explaine himself too much. The way he says things and the fact that he can not see the others faces, leads to misunderstandings that make me really sad and the clips shown on the show, do not show him in the right way(oi what sentence). Yes he is my favorite and it is possible that I am not 100% objective but a person with a smile like his, a spirit like his can not be like they make him look. I stand by Mario and people should stop calling him a jerk or whatever. His voice is golden and the way he called Ryan sir was priceless, I just wanna hug him. Plus I think Zach likes him too he gets the Damian-face when Mario is on stage. I can see him on Glee I mean he is my favorite after all but I am afraid to say that I think is acting might not be strong enough at least from what we got to see so far, it is not :( and I can not really think of a role with a good storyline for him right now.
Michael - I like him more and more every Episode. Is not he just cute. And he is an actor not just a singer. And his part in the video gave me goosebumps in both ways, acting and singing wise. I can already see him on Glee. He can totally play Pucks half brother…Pleaeeaase!!
Nellie - I am so glad she won the HWA and I think she was the right choice. Nellie has a natural vulnerability which showed all Episode and gave her a strong perfromance. I also really love her voice and think she look so good on camera. I did not understand why she was almost in the bottom 3. I mean the critique was right she really has that problem but it did not really hinder her this week, I think it added to her performance. I think she is the most empathic person in the groupe and the way she looked at Lily Mea when said went bitch on Mario was exactly how I felt about it. Yes I see her on Glee. He acting needs to get stronger but she can do it. I also see her as a sibling of Pucks. Maybe Michaels twin…but since I ship them that wouldn’t be a good idea *lol*. So maybe she is Pucks guitar student because he has not made it out of Lima yet and helps him get to New York and to get Rachel while he helps her overcome her stagefear and or other issues…that would be so cool. ;)
Shanna - She is growing on me much to my own surpirse. Aside from Nellie, I do thing she has the strongest voice of the girls.Her acting and voice are strong enough to pull it off but I can nit think of a storyline right now.
