We didn’t blog about "Theatricality" and "Tenacity" (the last two episodes) because we had stuff going on. We’re sure you thought we would be upset that Nellie went home, but we felt like it was time. She didn’t take the advice and run with it. She got her second chance. We love her and her voice, but we don’t think she went home too early. It was deserved. We were SO SO SO glad Abraham went home in "Tenacity". Lily killed her song and Michael is so cute. Ern really loves Lily. Shanna is the most likeable, as a person, of the girls though. Ali keeps killing it. Ugh! Ern really hates her voice unless she is belting a long note. Then her voice loses that shrillness and gets some depth.
About Abraham: Ern has a newfound respect for Ryan Murphy. When Abraham tried to kiss up to him and talk about Ryan’s “adorable little hats,” Ryan was like, “Stop the flattery. Get real.” Ern haaaaaaaaaaaates being complimented. Unless she knows the person well, it always feels like the person wants something. Not to mention the fake thing. Ern is told that she needs to give more compliments because not everyone feels that way. It could be so. Anyway, Ryan acted like a big, gay Ern when he shut Abraham down. There was just something weird with Abraham’s attitude, and his voice wasn’t as good as the others.
This week, we have Romanticality and Darren Criss. Someone thinks the romantic relationships on Glee are “iconic”? Whaaaa? He also thinks the show has had “groundbreaking” scenes. Maybe the part where Kurt lost his virginity at the same time as Rachel? Maybe. But that’s it. Man, these kids always sound good on the homework challenges. Shanna is like, “I don’t get negative feedback.” Umm, when there are only six people left, you’re gonna. Of course the hot one won the challenge. We didn’t appreciate his girl impersonation. The girls don’t sound like that when they talk, especially Lily. Maybe Ali sounds like that.
Poor Blake! How can you be on Glee and not be able to do harmony?!! FINN can do harmony. Of course, harmony is something anyone with an ear can learn to do. You just have to practice. We recommend singing along with boy bands (even if you hate them). Those bands have obvious harmony, and the songs are harmony-friendly. Sing along with those harmony parts, and you will soon be picking it out of regular songs. You didn’t see anyone going nuts over the guest principal. Sad. We’ve got to give it to Ali and Blake. They were the sexiest. “We Found Love” was a really cute video (for this show, anyway).
We feel bad for Aylin. It’s tough for a straight girl to create chemistry with another girl that’s more believable than two straight couples. We thought the songs they gave the bottom three were difficult. Leeard wanted to see Aylin go, but Ern wanted to see Blake go. Of course, he’s not going home because he’s adorable. Ern wanted to keep Aylin because she makes the show interesting and Ern likes her voice, even though it’s a little breath-y. Both of us wanted to keep Shanna, and we were pretty sure she was safe since it’s her first time in the bottom three. Of course she then proceeded to suck a little.
Aylin gave Ern chills singing “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.” Beautiful. Too bad she forgot the words. Blake’s nerves affected his rendition of “Losing My Religion,” an overdone, but nice song. He sounded good. Now let’s hear him do harmony with it. Shanna sang “Stronger” by Kelly Clarkson, and she forgot the words too. Still, we think she sounded better than Mercedes did singing it. Shanna’s voice had more oomph, especially in the beginning before she forgot the words. Ryan has to, essentially, ask her, “What is about you that can be on Glee? Do you have a handicap? Are you gay?” Nope. She’s normal. That means she’s gone. We’re so angry.
Episode grade: F
It was kind of boring too.
