The Glee Project Review

Jul 25, 2011

The geniuses behind the hit TV series GLEE have created a new reality show, giving 12 Gleeks the chance to audition for a guest starring role on Glee! Kidzworld reviews The Glee Project!

Twelve weeks, 12 episodes and 12 hopeful contestants fighting for a piece of stardom. It’s the chance of a lifetime - to break into the acting world on the most popular high school dramedy, Glee.

The Themed Episodes

Here’s how it works: To begin each week, the contestants perform their homework assignment (a song fragmented into assigned parts) for a different Glee cast member. The winner receives free one-on-one coaching time with the celeb and a more prominent part in the weeks’ music video.

Next, they tackle a theme, such as vulnerability or individually, by recording a music video. In some episodes, these topics are tough, and involve a lot of soul searching for the contestants. During callbacks, the judges (Ryan Murphy, Robert Ulrich and Zach Woodlee) choose the bottom three, who will each have to perform a song. Based on their performances, the judges will eliminate one contestant.

The elimination is more like a real audition than a reality show. Instead of the judges announcing who will be going home, they post a callback list. The contestants who remain in the competition will find their names on that list. It’s a bit harsh and impersonal, but that’s what you get in the acting business.

The Contestants

The top 12 contestants are:

  • Ellis Wylie (18)
  • Alex Newell (18)
  • Damian McGinty Jr. (18)
  • Hannah McIalwain (19)
  • Lindsay Pearce (19)
  • Samuel Larsen (19)
  • Marissa con Bleicken (19)
  • Matheus Fernandes (19)
  • McKyntheigh Abraham (19)
  • Cameron Mitchell (21)
  • Emily Vásquez (22)
  • Bryce Ross-Johnson (22)

I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online. Let's not even touch that)

Which channel do you think as of today is the best channel for kids today on cable. I would probably go with Disney XD. It's just as good as it was back in 2009 in my opinion and it has a great selection of shows. What do you think is the definitive channel for kids in 2016?
