It is Sexuality week on The Glee Project
, and that means getting
uncomfortably familiar with one another. Or in the case of Charlie and
Aylin, it means maintaining the status quo, because it seems those two
are trying and failing miserably to keep their romance a secret.
This episode also teaches us that the Kelis song "Milkshake" is not actually about delicious dairy desserts. And we say goodbye to Abraham's Awesome Red Stripe (but, thankfully, not Abraham).
Homework Assignment: "I Wanna Sex You Up" by Color Me Bad
Upon learning about sexuality week, there are plenty of differing opinions. Aylin is super stoked because she's always sexy all the time, but Nellie confesses to being very uncomfortable because she's never seen a naked guy. On the other end of the spectrum, 18-year-old Michael boasts that he's rather experienced at this, so good for him.
For the performance, it's full of bumping and grinding, and we see that Abraham has dyed his hair black (RIP Awesome Red Stripe). Naya Rivera points out that Blake is at an unfair advantage because he's super sexy, Aylin tries too hard, Nellie tries too little and Charlie is the winner because Naya loves beatboxing. Seriously, that's the only reason, because he's super dorky and I'd hardly call that sexy.Music Video: "Moves Like Jagger" / "Milkshake" by Maroon 5 and KelisChoreography
: Shanna's idea of "sexy" is smiling, which Zach Woodlee does not like at all. And Nellie has real problems being sexy, especially when she's given a pretty big move with Blake.Vocals
: Michael bombs miserably (Nikki Anders even kicks him out of the booth), but the real story is Chaylin (Charlie and Aylin). Charlie can't stop flirting with her in the studio and he basically admits that these two are a couple. It is so high school and so adorable, but also incredibly unprofessional.Video Shoot
: After two weeks of Ryan Murphy chastising Lily for being too seductive in her last chance performances, she puts it to good use and rules the video shoot by having a great command over her body.
The biggest surprise, however, is Nellie, who has magically found confidence she doesn't really have and rocks her sexy scenes with Blake. Now that's the sign of a talented actress. It's more impressive when we find out Nellie thinks that "Milkshake" is actually about milkshakes, and that it's a delicious glass of blended ice cream that brings all the boys to the yard, because everyone loves milkshakes. In her defense, she has a point. I would totally go to the yard for a milkshake. Or I would just use a big straw and drink it up
Tyler once again fails because he's uncomfortable in his own body, and I'm so over that as an excuse. It's time for him to go. As for Abraham, it turns out that the Awesome Red Stripe in his hair was holding him back, because now he's a total bad-ass who the judges love.
And Charlie, after winning the homework assignment and being told by Ryan last week that he gave the best performance ever, is way too cocky. He's basically trying to direct the whole music video and it's very unsexy and extremely unprofessional.The Bottom 3Charlie - "I Get a Kick Out of You" by Cole Porter
: He gives another brilliantly oddball performance that almost makes me forget of all the bad things he did this week. But Ryan Murphy calls him out on being chastised by the director and flirting with Aylin, which is very unprofessional. The judges really rake him over the coals on this, but Ryan still finds him fascinating despite the fact that he's a hot mess.Tyler - "Smile" by Charlie Chaplin
: He's been here twice before, so he wonders if third time's a charm, or if it's three strikes and you're out. I vote for the latter, because he's just not on the same level as everyone else, no matter how much Ryan loves the fact that he's transgendered. Basically, Ryan admits that he doesn't want to criticize Tyler because he admires him as a person.Michael - "Lucky" by Jason Mraz
: He's super sexy and smooth, but then he totally forgets the lyrics and it's a crash and burn. He choked, plain and simple. The judges all try desperately to find reasons to defend him, because it's clear they don't actually want to send him home even though he definitely gave the worst last chance performance ever.Who's Going Home?
Tyler is eliminated! Yeah, it's about time. Like Ryan Murphy, I admire him a whole lot, but he's clearly just not ready for this yet.
