Jane Lynch Helps ‘Glee Project’ Contestants Tackle ‘Fearlessness’

For an episode with such an exciting theme—Fearlessness—this week’s “Glee Project” was fairly lackluster. No major contender-judge conflicts, no shocking upsets or eliminations (only a minor Bottom 3 screwup I’ll get to later). But there were a couple of exceptions to the boring undertones, the first being guest mentor Jane Lynch. The fact that she […]

‘Glee Project’: Adaptability Week All About the Element of Surprise

Maybe Adaptability week will teach those endlessly excited “Glee Project” contenders to refrain from squealing immediately upon the announcement of just any old theme. Somehow I doubt the shrieks this week translated to, “OMG they’re about to change everything we’re supposed to do at the last minute leaving us completely unprepared, we’re so excited!!!!” Zach […]

After watching Lily repeatedly do her “wedding-dance boobie-shaker thing,” […]

Gleecap: Finale Wraps with Long ‘Goodbye’

It started off well. This week’s Season 3 finale of “Glee” opened with Schue walking in on the original five New Directions members reprising their abysmally choreographed rendition of “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat” from the pilot episode. It made me nostalgic and smiley. Then Schue popped their celebratory bubble by reminding them of […]

Gleecap: Did New Directions Win Nationals?

It’s been three years since the gods atop Mount Glee transformed us from people who had no idea competitive show choir was a thing into mash-up-loving superfans who were dying to see a plucky group of misfits to win the national title. It’s TV. A big win was inevitable. So it is with little fanfare […]
