When the bottom three of tonight’s The Glee Project Season 2, Episode 6: "Fearlessness" was announced, one thing became abundantly clear: Whoever ended up going home, plenty of fans would end up upset.
Nellie Veitenheimer may have faded into the background during the early episodes of the season, but she’s quickly emerged a fan favorite for her unique voice and incredibly sincere and relatable personality.
Then you have Charlie Lubeck and Aylin Bayramoglu, whose blossoming romance on the show has even earned its own mashup name: Chaylin. (Or Charlin? We’re not really sure which. But either way, we totally ship it.)
Sadly, one of those three did get sent packing in this week’s episode. For a while, it seemed like Nellie just might be the one to go. She flubbed a line while rapping in the homework assignment, and the mentors said time and time again how she lack confidence and doesn’t seem to understand how truly talented she is. That said, no one can deny that her last chance performance of Beyonce’s “If I Were a Boy” was breathtaking.
The judges gave Aylin a slight slap on the wrist, but then basically told her that she is unlike anyone they’ve seen before and Glee would be lucky to have her. No way she’s going home this week.
Then there’s Charlie. While Ryan and the judges agreed that his energetic and unforgettable rendition of Tom Jones’s “It’s Not Unusual” was possibly his best performance to date. However, Charlie’s been in the bottom three plenty of times before, and the judges worry that he might be too scattered and unpredictable.
In the end, it was Charlie who ultimately got sent home. Do you agree with the judges’ choice, or do you think another contender deserved to get the boot, instead?
