VIDEO: The Final Five Glee Project Contestants Hit a Major Crossroads

The Glee Project

With only five contenders left in the running for a role on Glee, The Glee Project is turning up the heat and trying some new tricks.

In this week's music video, for P!nk's hit song "Perfect," the contestants must bring their best vocals and their top acting chops to the table for a clip that's more short film than performance art. In the clip, Charlie and Michael play best friends fighting over Aylin, who's... read more

The Newsroom

Question: It seems that many TV critics (you being a notable exception) are coming down hard on The Newsroom, and I was wondering if you have an idea of why this is. Yes, it's preachy, but every Aaron Sorkin show and movie is. Successful, intelligent career women are portrayed as being driven mostly by their hormones, but that's true of every woman character on TV that's written by a man (unless played by Julianna Margulies or Connie Britton). And some of the plot contrivances (the wayward e-mails, the Bigfoot obsession, the cute blonde assistant who is smart when the plot needs her smart and dumb when the plot needs her dumb) are cringe-worthy. On the other hand, you've got a talented, likable cast ably delivering some of the snappiest dialogue on TV, which right there puts it ahead of 95 percent of everything else.

I'm not saying it's not flawed, but the pluses outweigh the minuses by quite a bit, and the show is wildly entertaining. So why the heavily negative reaction? Is Sorkin held to a higher standard? Are journalists taking more shots because the show is set in a milieu they know (a newsroom) rather than the White House? Curious on your take on this. — Rick

Our top moments of the week:

12. Most Tone-Deaf Elimination:
The Glee Project takes an interesting turn when the show's arguably three best singers land in the bottom three and are forced to sing for Ryan Murphy. Shanna, this season's frontrunner, dominates her Kelly Clarkson tune before mustering the courage to tell Murphy she doesn't belong at the bottom. Shockingly, he decides she's wrong and sends her packing. Um, so who's going to be the next Rachel Berry now?

11. Worst Argument: After he's put into the bottom three on The Glee Project, Abraham delivers a perfectly fine performance of Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror" for his last-chance performance. But after feeling that he gave less than his best, he storms back onstage to tell Ryan Murphy and the other judges just how much he deserves to stay. "I'm not freaking leaving until I win this competition and you write a role for me on Glee," he proclaims. Murphy appreciates his initiative... read more

Question: Frankly, the Emmys should just be the Cable Television Awards now, and they can have a "special mention" category for everything on broadcast. I don't have cable, I don't want cable, and I haven't seen any of the nominees from cable. There just isn't enough room these days for the leftovers, no matter how good broadcast shows may be, so there's not much point watching the awards. — ACS

After graduating from McKinley High last spring, Rachel, Kurt and the rest of the seniors are going to have a tough time in the "real world" when the show returns this fall (Sept. 13 at 9/8c).
