If any of you haven’t been reading the comments on these recaps, it seems that the contestants’ Twitter accounts are very enlightening. Wheelchair Barbie is dating Dani (D. Biebs)! Abraham is a tool and hates everyone! Nellis may be gay as well! All in all, more interesting stuff than on the actual show.
I’m still pissed about Shnnannana going home, but I’m not going to dwell on it. I didn’t even like her that much, but compared to Magic Carpet she was lovely. Let’s just move on.
Robert comes in and tells them they’re one week away from the finale, and asks them how they feel about that. There’s a real awkward pause where no one says anything and then WB says amazing, and then everyone chimes in. It’s like those stupid post-Olympics interviews where they ask the athlete who just won a GOLD MEDAL how they feel. I’m still waiting for one of them to answer, “I’m sweaty, tired, in pain, and just want to go home and get drunk before finding some hot Olympian ass.” A girl can dream.
Robert says you need the “triple threat” for Glee- singing, dancing, and acting, but apparently acting is the most important of them all. It’s certainly not singing or dancing as proved by both the real Glee actors and some of the people on this show (cough cough Blake). So the theme of the week is actability. Generic Cutie is worried about Blake because he’s an “actor.” You should be worried about Blake because he’s clearly the winner of this show.
“Addicted to Love” by Robert Palmer is the song of the week, and Generic Cutie is the only one who knows it. Seems like kind of a random song choice to me, but the song isn’t really important for this HW, as we’ll soon see.
Too bad knowing the song won’t matter much this time
WB says if you can’t act you shouldn’t be on Glee. Duh. If you can’t act you shouldn’t try to be an actor at all. Not that you can’t become one with little or no talent. Examples A and B: Kristen Stewart (dead eyes) and Robert Pattinson (same).
I don’t know if you guys have ever seen this but it’s one of my favorite pictures. And so true!
The special guest this week is Dianna Aggron. Robert says she’s had more changes than anyone to go through acting, which is another way of saying that the writing is so erratic that she’s had to work hard to keep up with her insane character changes (bitchy cheerleader one minute, emo misfit the next, crazy baby stealer the next).
Blake is stunned by her beauty. Keep it in your pants, Blakey, don’t you have a girlfriend at home? The guests always coming onto the show saying “I’ve heard so much about you guys.” I wonder how true that is. It seems more likely that they throw some flashcards with the contenders’ pictures and names in front of them in the limo ride over.
I just learned your names five minutes ago! So which one of you is the blind kid?
