I hate to say it, but these kids all looked pretty good as mean, rich kids. I like to look like a mean, rich kid because I get to wear sunglasses and feel cool. In the end of the video, because of compassion or something, all of Aylin's friends left her to dress like greasers and sing/dance at her. I'd much rather be texting and wearing a chic cloche. But that's just me. At the end, they all laugh and throw Aylin's cloche into the air, forgetting that they were ever total assholes.
On stage for the reveal of the bottom three, Robert acknowledges Aylin as the standout performance. She really looked cute in that cloche. Aylin, Shanna, Michael, and Lily all looked good and are excused from whatever the next round of adaptability-related horrors the competition will throw at the leftovers..
Nellie doesn't blend well with a talented group, Blake has been doing well at everything except picking up choreography on the fly, Abraham struggled with pitch in the studio, Ali is too Broadway still. And you, Mario, are still being defensive, making excuses and generally off-putting. The same goes for you, Charlie.
For this week, they're doing something different. All six of them will be performing in duets, and Ryan shall decide which three will be eligible for elimination. Ali and Abraham are singing together, Mario and Charlie will be saddled together in the most defensive and off-putting duo ever to grace the stage. Nellie and Blake will sing together and it will be very good looking. The Defensive Duo are singing "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me," the Trouble in the Studio Duet will sing "Last Friday Night," and the Good Looking Couple will sing "Waiting for a Girl/Boy Like You." I hope Mario and Charlie land themselves in the bottom, and judging by their rehearsal, it appears they shall.
There was a 30-second segment in between commercials focusing on Charlie's "Scott Campbell," and it just made me so angry. Charlie thinks he is hilarious, and it's all just tired, stale material. Oxygen, why did you show that to me? I have so much rage now.
The last chance performances are here to quell my rage, but not Ryan Murphy's. He already seems cranky. Blake and Nellie sing first, and they seem nervous introducing themselves but it works for their performance, which is full of furtive glances and meaningful hand-holding. The vocals are spectacular, and Zach and Nikki have to hide their misting eyes.
