After an intense week, which I failed to recap due to some busy schedules and patriotism towards the Olympics, Ryan finally made his decision with the other writers and cast members. Although Charlie’s plea for Aylin was extremely transparent and weird, I liked the different opinions from everybody. Especially the ones from the other writers, because let’s be serious. Ryan might be Glee‘s showrunner, but I doubt Ryan does most of the work on Glee. That’s why there’s a whole crew of writers, you guys!
I’m kind of bummed and so sorry at the same time, that I didn’t got the time to review the previous episode. I had so much to say about the duo-exit, especially since they both deserved their elimination. So I guess, what I really want to say is that these three kids really deserved to be here. Those kids are talented as hell and can actually act. OK, maybe Ali isn’t the best actor out of the three but she’s still better than Damian or Samuel.
As expected, all of the other contestants returned for the final episode. So did Lilly and Michael stay in the background to crawl back a week later? I’m just curious how much time had passed between one week. Anyway it was a sweet reunion between all the contestants. The point for their return was to be a background choir during their homework assignment for ‘You Can’t Stop The Beat’ from the musical ‘Hairspray’. Everybody loves this song, even if you don’t know the musical. Who am I kidding, everybody knows this song since the movie version with Zac Efron to swoon over!
Let’s go back to the show, so finally Chris Colfer showed up for a mentoring session and crowned all three of them the winners of the assignment. He didn’t really gave them very good advice for the music video, but more for their final performance. Which was another song by that ‘Call Me Maybe’-girl.
Since this was the finale, I had this feeling that they could mess everything up in the music video and still could be crowned the winner. It was just a video for the sake of making a video. It wasn’t that special, but it was nice to see everyone together again. Last year’s winner Damian even popped up in the end for a special cameo and some bad advice.
Finally, it was time for to perform. This time the crowd was quite larger than usual. Ryan and the mentors were joined by all of the writers and Brooke the dance assistant, along with all the contestants and a bunch of the cast. They would offer their opinions and pleas for the potential winner. It was quite obvious that the most of the cast actually prefered Ali, while the writers wanted a star to write for. Which was obviously Blake! Let’s talk about Blake’s poem! Was it really that necessary? OK, he wanted to show everybody another side of his personality. But that poem was really lame and awful. Hey, if it works for him. Why not?
I think this time the choice was really hard, because Ryan had to choose between three immensely different people. A girl who is made for Broadway, a new leading man and the girl with the great back story. Eventually Ryan chose his new star, Blake. I think Blake has the most amount of potential, and it was obvious from the beginning. I’m actually that excited for Blake, that I’m considering checking out one of his episodes. I’m also convinced that we haven’t seen the last of Ali and Aylin. In a show like Glee, it’s entirely possible to show up one way or another. I’m really satisfied with the end result and how about you?
