Part 1
So here's what you missed on The Glee Project, Rose is starting the competition off strong!

Nikki: Amazing, oh my god I love your voice!

Zachary has a real problem with making friends.

Zachary: What Attitude?

And Taylor was relying on Tyler to get her through.

But in the end, Jerry was sent home.

Now only 11 contenders remain. And thats all you need to know so far on: The Glee Project!


Everyone is talking in the choir room.

Zachary CONFESSION CAM: I realized I had some attitude “issues”. Frankly, I don’t see it, but I got to step up to the plate if I want to impress the mentors *shrugs*.

Robert walks in

Vixen: Hey Robert!

Robert: Hey, so I bet you are all dying to know what the theme is for this week!

Ellie: Tell us!

Robert: Okay, this week’s theme is..... Vulnerability!

Everyone: Woah, okay, okay.

Zachary CONFESSION CAM: I consider myself very vulnerable. This week I can really prove to those stupid, criticizing mentors that I do belong here. No matter what they say!

Robert: So your Homework Assignment is... Unfaithful by Rihanna!

The contenders get all excited.

Robert: So get to work because you do not want to disappoint tomorrow’s mentor.

They start picking lines.

Zachary: Okay, I really don’t care what you say but I am going to get line 4.

The room gets silent.

Tyler: Well... but...

Zachary: What?

Tyler: Nothing, nothing. nevermind.

Tyler CONFESSION CAM: Zachary is now officially getting on my last nerve. I am tired of him telling us what he will do, and all. It is really irritating us :/

Homework Assignment Time

Robert: So today’s mentor is definitely the most vulnerable actress on Glee.

Pompoms are picked up and Glasses are put on.

Lauren Potter walks in.

Robert: So this is Lauren Potter who plays the vulnerable character on Glee Becky Jackson.

Lauren: Growing up with Down Syndrome does make you very vulnerable. So lets see it!


"Unfaithful" by Rihanna

Skye:
Story of my life
Searching for the right

Austin:
But it keeps avoiding me
Sorrow in my soul

Jessie:
Cause it seems that wrong
Really loves my company

Zachary:
She's more than a girl
And this is more than love

Ellie:
The reason that the sky is blue
The clouds are rolling in

Julian:
Because I'm gone again
And to her I just can't be true

Rose:
And I know that he knows I'm unfaithful
And it kills him inside

Taylor:
To know that I am happy with some other guy
I can see him dying

All:
I don't wanna do this anymore
I don't wanna be the reason why
Everytime I walk out the door
I see 'em die a little more inside
I don't wanna hurt 'em anymore
I don't wanna take away their life
I don't wanna be...
A murderer

Vixen:
I feel it in the air
As I'm doing my hair

Greyson:
Preparing for another date
A kiss upon my cheek

Tyler:
As she reluctantly
Asks if I'm gonna be out late

All:
I don't wanna do this anymore
I don't wanna be the reason why
Everytime I walk out the door
I see 'em die a little more inside
I don't wanna hurt 'em anymore
I don't wanna take away their life
I don't wanna be...
A murderer


Lauren: Oh my that was... so... cool!

Skye, you were really emotional. I wanted to cry.

Skye smiles really big

Lauren: Zachary, you were just really awesome! The look on your face was really priceless.

Everyone is shocked.

Lauren: Ellie I feel like you weren’t in pain. More like... confused.

Robert: So Lauren who is our winner today?

Lauren: It was between Skye and Zachary. Skye!

Robert: Okay Skye you have won a one on one mentoring session with Lauren Potter and a standout moment in the group number which is...

Lauren: Ummm, oh Jar of Hearts.

Robert: By Christina Perri.

Zachary CONFESSION CAM: I deserved to win. Nothing more than that.

Robert: There will be no choreography this week, so Erik will have a chat discussing the video and all your vulnerabilities.

Robert: Bye guys!

Lauren: Bye!

Everyone yells goodbye


Vocals

Zachary walks in

Zachary: Hi Nikki.

Nikki: Ready?

Zachary: Yup.

Zachary:

No, I can't take one more step towards you

Cause all thats waiting is regret

Nikki: Woah! That was incredible!

Zachary: Sweet!

Nikki CONFESSION CAM: Zachary is starting a maturing process. I just hope it will last.

Austin walks in

Nikki: Hello Mr. Austin!

Austin: What's up?

Nikki: I am going to play you in okay?

Austin: Alright.

Austin:

And WHO do YOU are

RUnning round leaving scars

Nikki: Okay that was... was something.

Austin: Not good?

Nikki *silently nods*

Austin does it after 13 more tries

Nikki: Finally!

Austin CONFESSION CAM: I really have to step it up next week if I want to stay... I know I am in the bottom.

Skye walks in

Nikki: Okay lets work on the bridge. Remember this is like the Climax of the song. Ready?

Skye: Yes!

Skye:

Don't come back for me,

Don't come back at all!

Nikki: Woohoo! Awesome! Awesome!

Skye: Yes!


Meeting with Erik

Erik walks in the room

Everyone: Hey Erik!

Erik: Hey guys! So the object in the video is homelessness. It is a crisis now. So many people are living on the streets it is just horrid.

Julian raises his hand *tearing up*

Julian *crying*: When my parents found out I got my girlfriend pregnant, they kicked me out. I... I had nobody really. Shanaynay's parents wouldn't let me see her. I really thought I would suffer.

His eyes get really watery

Julian: And then I fell in a life of drugs. I didn't know where or who to go... It was just despair.

He begins to sulk into a pillow.

Erik: Thank you for telling us. Tyler do you have something to say?

Tyler *tearing up*: Well when my mom, you know, committed suicide. I was left onto the streets with my brother. It was the hardest thing I could do you know. I was only a kid. I didn't know how to raise my brother. I didn't even know if we could live through it. I couldn't bare to lose the rest of my family. I just, I just needed help and no one would give it to me.

Skye CONFESSION CAM: Hearing how Tyler raised his little brother on the streets was heartbreaking. He is so brave and I commend him for that.

Erik: Besides homelessness. Any of you have something to share that makes vulnerable?

Vixen immediately begins to cry

Erik: Vixen do you have something to say?

Vixen: No its nothing.

Erik: Tell us we are all being open here.

Everyone in the room is asking Vixen what happened.

Vixen flips out

Vixen: This is my personal life... okay!

Erik: Please...

Vixen: No I won't do it, its, its too hard!

Vixen storms out crying

Everyone sighs

Erik CONFESSION CAM: If Vixen hadn't stormed out and just would have told us she would have been safe, but now I don't know.


Video Shoot Time Erik: Okay you guys all ready?

Everyone: Uh huh!

Erik: Okay lets get Vulnerable.

It is Skye's turn to film

Erik: Okay you are the homeless person here. I need you to sell it. I need to feel you pain.

Skye: Right

Skye sits in a box

Skye:

And don't you know I am not your ghost anymore?

You lost the love I loved the most

Erik: Wow, that was incredible!

Robert *talking with the other mentors*: She is becoming such an awesome actor.

Nikki: Yeah.

Skye CONFESSION CAM: I think I am excelling this week thanks to my mentoring with Lauren Potter!


FLASHES TO CHOIR ROOM WITH SKYE AND LAUREN

Skye: So how do I get so vulnerable?

Lauren: Think of what you had to go through to get this far in your life. The obstacles that you had to overcome can really affect you emotionally.


FLASHES BACK TO SHOOT

Erik: Jessie, you need to act like you are very selfish, you don't care that you just laid somebody off.

Jessie: Okay.

She messes up horribly the first 2 times forgetting the lyrics

Jessie: Please one more shot?

Erik: Alright!

She does it amazingly

All three contenders laughed.

Robert: At first she seemed a bit lost, but now she is just doing it justice!

Zach: Definitely!

Erik: Okay Julian, you are a rich kid who ignores Skye only to find out you lost your job.

Julian: Right.

Julian walks by Skye and goes into his home. He puts on a very pouty, overdramatic face.

Robert: I didn't like that.

Erik: Julian one more time.

Robert *talking with the other mentors*: Julian isn't clearly at the caliber of the other contenders when it comes to acting.

Zachary: I agree.

Robert: So Rose, Tyler, Greyson, Ellie and Taylor... You 4 are also called back.

They walk off

Zach: So then it came down between you 4...

Robert: Julian in the Video Shoot it took you multiple times to act on a simple scene... You clearly don't have the acting skills others do here.

Nikki: Austin, lets face it you were not good at all in the booth this week. You were struggling, well a lot.

Zach: Vixen, Erik informed us that you had stormed out during the meeting. All because he put you on the spot.

Vixen: Well... I am sorry, it had just gotten to me.

Robert: Jessie in the video shoot you struggled a bit... But then you just wowed us. Which is why you are called back!

Zach: So the 3 of you will all be performing for Ryan tonight.

Nikki: Alright song time. Austin your song will be, Everybody Talks by Neon Trees.

Vixen: I sure will try to do so!

Nikki: Julian your song is Heartless by Kanye West.

Julian: I don't know that has some high notes... I may not be able to do it well.

Nikki: If you have to, adjust the high notes to your range.

Julian: Okay.

Robert: Now get to work!

They all start rehearsing in their rooms.

Austin CONFESSION CAM (while singing): I am going to give my all tonight! I will give the best performance I ever have.

Last Chance Performance Time


The Mentors and Ryan walk in the Auditorium

Ryan: So who do we have first?

Robert: Up first is Austin.

Nikki: I have to say he is one of the weakest voices here.

Ryan: Lets see him!

Austin walks out

Ryan: Very nice!

Austin: Thanks!

Ryan: I felt you were however a bit pitchy. But you were terrific. It was very fun and lively.

Austin: Thank you, nice to meet you.

He walks off

Zach: Vixen is up next. In the meeting with Erik she stormed out because he put her on the spot.

Ryan: I am going to have to get to the bottom of that.

Vixen walks onto the stage

Vixen: Hello, I am Vixen Albridge and I will be singing Viva la Vida.

Vixen:

I used to rule the world

Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own

One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can't explain
Once you go there was never
Never an honest word
And that was when I ruled the world

It was the wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People couldn't believe what I'd become

I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror, my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field

For some reason I can't explain
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world


Ryan: Wow that incredible! I am speechless!

Vixen: Oh my god! Thank you!

Ryan: But whats up with your dramatic exit.

Vixen immediately gets teary eyed

Vixen: At first I never wanted to talk about it, but...

Ryan: Take your time.

Vixen *crying*: Okay, well when I was a teenager: I was raped by my boyfriend...

She falls to the floor her eyes filled with tears

Ryan rushes up there

Vixen *hyperventilating*: But I had gotten pre-pre-pregnant, and had to ge-ge-get an abortion.

Zach: Oh my god!

Vixen is beginning to calm down

Ryan: Thank you so much for sharing that.

Vixen: It is just hard you know.

Ryan: Yeah... Anywho you were incredible tonight!

Vixen *wiping off her tears*: Thanks.

She walks off

Zach *muttering*: I just gained a whole level of respect for her now.

Nikki: I know.

Julian walks on

Julian: Hello, I am Julian and I will be singing Heartless by Kanye West.

Julian:

In the night I hear 'em talk, the coldest story ever told

Julian bites his lip

Austin looks down and sighs
