Abraham sings "Man in the Mirror" by Michael Jackson next. A lawyer would never do such a thing, or wear such tight red pants with platform boots. Vocally, the performance was all there, but Abraham seemed really tired. Not much tenacity. Abraham blames his injury for his lack of focus in the video, and tells them that he did not stop once before limping offstage in those platform boots.
I eagerly anticipate the day that Ryan and the rest are over Lily. Perhaps today is that day. They seem delighted with her performance of "I'm the Greatest Star" from Funny Girl. Ryan confronts her about the jump rope, and Lily blames her frustration on "Aylin's rude comment." They loved her yet again, and her tenacity, so it looks like we'll be suffering Lily another week.
The judges are discussing all three contestants when Abraham limps back on stage. Ryan is taken back, but amused. Abraham apologizes for his performance this week, then defends his case like the true lawyer he should have been. But Ryan Murphy will not lose control of the room.
"You're using your bravado and personality to overcome the fact that you didn't bring the level of performance that you needed to bring," Ryan tells him, "I thought you were going to ask to sing again." But Abraham didn't think to do that. "I don't care about pontification or your place in the world," Ryan tells Abraham. He doesn't care about anything. He will wear a trenchcoat indoors.
I'd love to see all three of them go home to really get this competition started. For whatever reason, Aylin is resting her head on Lily's shoulder when the list goes up. I thought they weren't friends? Maybe Aylin just misses Charlie, and how he was always in the bottom three. Guess who didn't have a limp walking up to the list? Abraham.
Abraham, despite his closing statements, is not called back. He is surprised, and still doesn't understand why he did poorly this week. He should have asked to sing again, but instead he wasted the precious time of Ryan Murphy. You should never do that, Abraham. It is the cardinal rule of The Glee Project.
