Ellis on The Glee Project 101
My favorite part of the homework assignment was getting to perform for Darren and Robert because it was the first time we sang together as a group. I also LOVED shooting the confetti. When we were shooting the video, I really felt like we were stars. It was an amazing feeling.
Living with everyone is a little tedious, but mostly it makes for loads of fun and great conversations and jokes! I think we’re a really tight group, but little groups are already forming and closer friends are being made. Overall, I think we have great chemistry, especially when we perform together.
The mentor I connected with most this far has been Zach. Oh, how I love Zach. He is one of my favorite people in the entire world. He inspires me to be the best performer I can be. Zach makes me want to dance, which is a major feat as I feel incredibly uncomfortable when I dance. I’m so honored to be on this show, but out of everyone I’ve met -- cast, crew, and mentors – I will cherish Zach’s mentoring and friendship for the rest of my life.
Bryce’s elimination was full of conflicting emotions for me. I was of course happy and relieved that I hadn’t been eliminated, but the fact that someone had to go each week had never seemed real until Bryce walked out the door. Suddenly, the reality of the whole situation hit me and it was really upsetting. I think everyone felt it.
