Tacoma singer survives another round of the ‘The Glee Project’

Tacoma singer Nellie Veitenheimer became a party rocker tonight and made it to episode three of “The Glee Project.”

The reality TV show will send one talented and lucky contestant on a seven episode stretch on the hit Fox-TV show “Glee.”

Read my interview with Veitenheimer here.

Tonight’s episode featured a music video of LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem” with the cast. Veitenheimer had to kiss several of the male cast members of the show during a spin-the-bottle segment of the video. It was a task she didn’t relish, she said on the show.

The creative directors of the show were particularly down on the cast in this episode calling the music video shoot the worst ever.

Veitenheimer got a lot more camera time in this episode in comparison to last week. Her acting and dancing still don’t stand out compared to the rest of the cast and she took some criticism over it. Tonight’s theme was “dance-ability” and the guest mentor was Samuel Larsen – last season’s winner.

The Tacoma singer was in the third (out of four) groups to be called back.

Dani (aka the androgynous contestant) was eliminated at the end of tonight’s show leaving 12 contestants in the running. Well…11…I forgot about Taryn who quit because she couldn’t handle the pressure or missed her mother or some other lame excuse. Good luck on being a grown-up Taryn.

I have to watch a lot of reality shows with my job and some of them are just painful. Anything Syfy sends me with “ghost” or “hunter” in the subject line goes straight in the trash. But, I’m enjoying “The Glee Project.” The show seems genuine (as far as these contrived formats go) and offers an insight into show business the average viewer just doesn’t get to see.
