The theme for the sixth episode of The Glee Project is Fearlessness and the homework song is “Now That We Found Love” by Heavy D and the Boyz.
The guest mentor for this week is Jane Lynch, who plays Sue Sylvester on Glee. Lily was chosen as the homework song challenge winner.
The group number is a mash-up of “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” by Pat Benatar and “One Way or Another” by Blondie. Lynch tells the contestants that they will also have a slushie fight during the video and the video will take place at a high school swimming pool.
There will be no choreography for the video so the contestants go straight to wardrobe. When Nellie finds out that the wardrobe consists of a bathing suit, she fears that she will not be confident enough to perform.
Michael struggles again in the booth, while Nellie is able to hit all the notes.
During the video shoot, Nellie must exit the way in a sexy way with a hair flip, but she does not feel confident enough to pull it off. Ali decides to be brave and get out of her wheelchair in order to be slushied like the other contestants. Zach Woodlee, the choreographer and Robert J. Ulrich, the casting director, fear it may be too much for her. At first she is doing okay but for a few minutes after the shot, she is unable to catch her breath.
For the last chance performances in front of Ryan Murphy, Charlie, Aylin, Nellie are chosen. Nellie will sing “If I Were A Boy” by Beyonce, Aylin will sing “Take A Bow” by Rihanna, and Charlie will sing “It’s Not Unusual” by Tom Jones. After Charlie’s performance, Murphy tells him that he says all the right things during the last chance performances but doesn’t show it during the week. Zach Woodlee tells Nellie after her performance that he feels like they are asking her to be on Glee, rather than her fighting to stay.
When the Call Back list is posted, Charlie finds himself on the Not Called Back list, leaving eight contestants to fight for the seven spot episodes on Glee.
